Pros I compared this with the Bose... just like many people. I found that this 88CD sounds just as good as some good mini-stereo (quite a bit larger than this model) systems out there. The price for sale was good ($99). I am pleased with the FM sound and th
Pros The grand father of audiophile sound Henry Kloss voiced this radio from the midrange out to the bottom and top. The modle 88CD is tonaly balanced,detailed and involeing.
Cons The transport could be alot quioter, and because the speaker system is integrated with the CDP it is importaint to decouple the unit from the table or what ever it's sitting on.
Summary The woofer in the unit is not a true subwoofer but a mid woofer,it rolls off at around 50hz. but will go down to 25hz. with very reduced sound pressure levels.
It is very capeable of makeing lots of bass.So much so that it needs to sit on a solid surface with a thick layer of cork under it to decouple the bass from the transport for less read errors and it tightens bass response as well.
Some units come out of the box with better reception than others but a good tech can realighn the pots in the tunner section.As the fine tuneing in China is less than steller where they are assembled.And even haveing this done it will still be cheaper and much better sounding than it's competitor. The level this player can reach is astounding for it's price.
Pros Sound, price, function!
Cons AM tuner sensitive to interference
Summary Great sound. Sounds and looks better that comparable Bose system at far less money. Really rich tones and deep base rivals component systems

Pros I can't understand it but after I unplog this radio (with no battery in it) the time and stations come back when you plug it in again - days later! I read likely every review before buying (it's a lot better than CNET's 7!) and it was rated as great by a
