Aside from being a space saver, there isn't much to say about this unit. It plays CDs fine and hasn't had any trouble playing discs I've burned using iTunes. Being able to see the disc spinning is kind of cool.
There are only two things I don't really like about this player: the AM/FM radio tuner and the volume control. The radio tuner is not digital, so you have to manually tune in a station every time you want to listen to the radio. It does seem to get pretty good reception though. The volume doesn't go up very high. Don't get me wrong, it's loud enough, it's just not loud enough for me to hear well from the other room. Of course, some might see this as a positive thing.
Overall, I would recommend this CD player if all you need are bare bones CD player functions.
The only thing it doesn't do is play mp3's.
If it did I would buy ten of them.
This is really a nice machine.
Buy one, you won't be sorry.
The first is what most people are reviewing.
It is distinguished by a red LED CD display.
This version was subpar and sold up until the end of 2006.
In 2007 the second version is distinguished by an LCD CD display.
The build quality is much better as well as the sound.
Apparently Emerson switched manufacturers as both unit s have different OEM
codes on the ID plates.
I have both versions and this is how I know this.
The first one I purchased at Walmart in December 2006 and it stopped reading cd's.
I returned it about a month later and received the second version.
The store had to have received new shipments and even the box looked different.
What a difference!
Much much better. And a bargain for $20 too!
Is it a high end model? heck no! but for the price it's good.
