A Review of the Sony CFDG700CP CD Boombox Radio Cassette Recorder
Boomboxes are fine music makers that let people maximize the entertainment of listening to good music with better sound quality, louder volumes, and clearer details. The Sony CFDG700CP CD Boombox Radio Cassette Recorder is one of these products with excellent quality and functional features that aren’t only for aesthetics, but also for music-making.
Sony calls this device a boombox and made use of its trademark Xplod Boombox design, which is designated for devices with higher quality and power and more aggressive looks. The look of this device is definitely aggressive, with its highlights of red and a silver face, fronting its rugged black body. It’s a “cool” machine with a nice aesthetic design that’s fresh as far as Sony devices go. Despite its classic cassette tape compatibility, it has a very funky look that makes it stand out and match the younger generations’ style preferences red rock entertainment review.

The dimensions of the speaker are 10 cm for each, the tweeter is 2 cm, and the woofer is 13 cm. The speakers are 4W each and the woofer is 12W, creating a total power output of 20W.

I am very satisfied with the performance of the Sony CFDG700CP CD Boombox Radio Cassette Recorder which not only lets me listen to my favorite soundtracks from my CD collection and my favorite radio stations, but also allows me to record on a cassette tape. Getting a vintage device with a modern design and high-tech features is something quite difficult to do, and I’m lucky to have found the device that I want in this baby. So if you want to makes use of new technology music-making while also accommodating the vintage cassette tape for music and recording, I highly recommend that you get this model because it has everything that you can ever ask for in a boombox.
