Product Description

Built tough, this heavy duty CD boombox is perfect for the jobsite, workshop or backyard. The rugged and durable design incorporates a water3 and dust resistant seal that protects your boombox from the elements. And with its oversized handle, the ZS-H10CP is easy to transport


Amazon.com Product Description If you need music that you can take with you on any rough and tumble adventure, look no further than the Sony ZS-H10CP CD Boombox. This tough unit is perfect for the job-site, workshop, or backyard, with a rugged and durable design that incorporates a water and dust resistant seal that protects it from the elements.

Durable, water-resistant, and rugged, the Sony ZS-H10CP is ready to provide the background music for your toughest jobs.
In addition to a big handle that makes it easy carry to any project, the ZS-H10CP features a protective safe guard bar that keeps it safe from stacking items and falling debris. You'll also find large controls for easy operation, even when wearing thick gloves. A high-impact plastic housing is designed for outdoor fun, with rubber gaskets, bushings and waterproof seals that help keep out water, moisture, and dirt. Plus, the boombox's footprint fits most shelves, allowing it to be easily incorporated into any tough environment.

But don't let the rugged design fool you; the ZS-H10CP is built to withstand the elements without sacrificing sound quality. A digital AM/FM stereo tuner provides accurate, drift-free tuning of AM and FM radio stations and lets you choose from the wide variety of radio talk shows and music programs, with the added enjoyment of stereo sound. The system also includes a line-in jack for digital music players so you can listen to your entire digital music collection via the boombox. And to really kick the sound up a notch, the ZS-H10CP features Mega Bass sound enhancement.

And for those with a big collection of CDs that make the workday more fun, the ZS-H10CP features a CD player with multiple play modes and ESP-2 anti-shock playback protection. Play modes let you listen to songs in sequence as recorded, in program (RMS) order, all tracks in random (shuffle) order, or a single track over and over. A four-line LCD screen keeps tabs on your track information, and SonicStage music software ships with the unit, so you can compile your own mix CDs.

What's in the Box
ZS-H10CP CD boombox and AC power adapter.

S2 = Sony ZS-XN30 Multi-Codec S2 Sports CD/Tuner Boombox (White)
H10 = Sony ZS-H10CP Heavy Duty CD Radio Boombox

Background: I bought the H10 to replace a defunct S2. I use three S2s and one H10 daily (and simultaneously) at a swimming pool, so I compare them daily.

My biggest surprise is that, contrary to what the specs imply, the H10 sounds twice as loud as the S2. Perhaps this is due in large part to the H10's significantly better base: there is noticeably more of it, and it is very clean (has low distortion). I play the S2 with the Mega Bass button on, yet the H10 bass is so pronounced and clean that I leave the its Mega Bass off. "Specs imply" means that the specifications state that the H10 = 2.3 watts per speaker vs 2.0 watts for the S2.

The H10 is significantly easier to use than the S2: The S2's up-down Volume buttons have been replaced with a large dial, the S2's jog control whose operation baffled water aerobic instructors has been replaced with clearly marked buttons, and that aggravating push-to-open CD cover has been replaced with a cover that has a hinge lock. And since the CD cover of two of my three S2's is nonfunctional, my guess is that this new hinge-lock cover will be more durable.

On the H10 but not on the S2 are: Line-in (for tape players and ipods), and a storage compartment. The latter is large enough both for both the H10's wall plug and a line-in jack (not provided).

The H10 is noticeably heavier than the S2, about the same width and depth, and twice the S2's heigth. Also, the black-red motif is much more in-your-face than the subtle white of the S2.

A quick caveat before I review. As of 5/12/2006 the Sony site (and Sears, too) still says this boombox takes 'C' batteries. It doesn't, it takes 'D' size, though a quantity of 6 is correct. I can't see that Amazon has included battery info. one way or the other.

This is truly an Industrial Strength boombox - extremely rugged. I bought one for my handicapped daughter, who needs almost constant music to keep her happy, but has been pretty rough on past boomboxes. This one ought to last.

It is significantly larger than the average portable boombox, so pay attention to the dimensions and weight to see if it's a fit for you.

The only weak spot is the antenna, which my daughter managed to break the first day. Be careful how you restore it to its telescoped slot. We can't find a replacement antenna yet.

Also, it lists on the Sony site and at Sears for $129.99, so I don't know where this site got a list price of $179.99.

I searched high and low for a product like this and seriously, this was the only one that had it all ... plays regular and mp3 CDs, AM/FM radio, line-in for any external player from laptops to mp3 players, no useless cassette player to get in the way and most importantly, it has GREAT sound; plenty of volume and bass response. Yes, it's heavy duty. It is rugged enough to take along to the work site, keep in the garage, take camping, you name it; it has sealed compartments and speaker guards to protect from dust or hits; it has a sturdy handle built into a protective frame; it has a small enough footprint to sit on most standard shelves ... also, it has a smarter, simpler look that I appreciate; it doesn't look like some sci-fi robot or a work of abstract art ... it is surprisingly light since the power supply is contained with the AC adapter (some might find it a negative to have to lug around a heavier, bulky AC adapter, but it depends on your perspective). The unit also contains a storage compartment for line-in cords, head phones or mp3 players. Like I said, it is hard to find any other product that completely rivals this unit in it's price range. Highly recommended if you need a rugged player with great sound, mp3 capabilities and line-in feature. I am really enjoying mine.

I found this boombox to be pretty much what was promised. Though I haven't banged it around much, it feels pretty hefty and well constructed. The seals around the CD lid and the plugs for the audio in and power jacks do make it a pretty good for damp and dusty places like the garage, basement or shop. It's also pretty big, so if you're looking for something compact, this probably isn't the best choice. The only hangs ups I really have with it are:

1) It uses a huge power adapter instead of a standard power cord that could fold neatly into the back of the radio.

2) The volume has to be turned up upon powering up the radio (it defaults to level 0), so it wont keep your volume settings like my old radio would after being turned off.

3) A remote would have been nice, too.

I really expected to like this boombox, but I was disappointed almost immediately, because the radio tuning isn't selective.

In other words, even when you're listening to strong stations, you can hear other stations "bleeding over" into the one you're tuned to. It's like a ghost station in the background. It's not horrible, but it messes with the sound.

For example, when listening to a rock station, I could hear faint talk-radio. On talk-radio, I could hear faint music. On a classics station, commercials from nearby stations were *really* noticable when they came on.

There was actually another problem with my particular sample, which is that it arrived with a faulty display (didn't have all the segments working in the rightmost character/number), but I could have lived with that.

The sound quality might be pretty good for CD's, MP3's and other clean sources, but I bought this specifically for the radio, and that part stinks (both AM and FM were plagued with this problem). There is simply no excuse for poor selectivity in a $140 radio. No speakers sound good playing two radio stations at the same time.

Other disappointments were the lack of a simple, conventional cord (it comes with a transformer), and a significantly cheaper feel than I expected. But the lack of clean, clear radio reception makes this a no-buy recommendation from me.
