4.0 out of 5 stars Surprising sound quality from such a small thing, April 2, 2010
This review is from: Emerson Portable Radio CD Player with Cassette Recorder (PD6548SL) (Electronics)
I just bought one of these and I must say for $30 I'm pleasantly surprised!
My children and wife use this when they play in the backyard and it plays loud and clear.
CD's,tapes the radio they all perform well.
So far about 8-10 hours of use using all sources and our first set of batteries is still going strong.

While not high fidelity sound (nor does it pretend to be) it's great for background music that's clear.
While the batteries do last long, you will need 8 C cells. That's a lot for a small stereo. But they also provide 12 volts DC so I guess it does'nt have to strain using less voltage.

We like it!

Item Boombox Model #PD6548SL

I purchased this item from the K-Mart store here in Wooster on June 3, 2010.
I was delighted to have radio, tape and CD in one unit.
However, in two months time I find the CD will not play. All the praise it gets on the net doesn't mean much.

Do I get a new one at no cost?

Wow, your the first one I've heard who had a problem with this unit.
If you still have the receipt return it to Kmart for an exchange.
OR contact Emerson radio for a warranty repair.
BUT you must have proof of purchase.
I hope this helped.

I used this review as part of my reasoning for purchasing the radio. Unfortunately we were VERY disappointed with the radio. Every CD we play skips or stops randomly. My daughter, who used her Christmas money to purchase, is very disappointed.

Sorry you had problems BUT I did not manufacture it. I just happened to have good luck with it. Unfortunately with these low end brands it's a hit or miss proposition. Bring it back and exchange it or get something else.
