Long live CDs and cassettes. They only die when we can\u2019t play them anymore, and luckily the Sony CFD S70 can play both and radio. It\u2019s definitely a contender as one of the best tabletop radio, even though anyone from that era knows it\u2019s really a boombox.\r\n\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Sony CFDS70 Review\r\nThe Sony CFD S70 is the perfect radio boombox for the listener who has a collection of cassettes and CDs they want to play from. With good sound quality and surprisingly deep bass, this radio will definitely take you back to the days before streaming.\r\n\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nIf you\u2019re buying the Sony CFD S70 to listen to FM radio it won\u2019t disappoint. It gets good reception and has a convenient digital tuner. You can preset up to 30 different radio stations for quick access.\r\n\r\nThis Sony also has a CD player and cassette player built into it, which perform as expected. The full stereo sound is a nice touch, and the speaker also has a mega bass boost to give the bass some extra punch.\r\n\r\nThe radio conveniently works off of AC or battery power, the latter of which has up to 19 hours of playback time. It\u2019s great given how portable it is.\r\nDesign\r\nThe CFD S70 is an update on the classic Sony boombox design that the company has been producing for decades. That\u2019s to say that Sony knows what they\u2019re doing. Controls are straightforward and easy to use. It\u2019s a good product that\u2019s well designed for those who prefer the older methods of music playback.\r\nValue\r\nIt can be hard to find a CD cassette boombox these days, so just being able to get one from a top audio company like Sony is value enough. Even top rated radios like Sangean WR-11 Wood Cabinet and Soundance SDY019 don\u2019t have CD or cassette capability. The funny thing is that this radio would probably be cheaper twenty-five years ago, but here we are.\r\nSony CFDS70 Review Wrap Up\r\nWith good sound quality across all playback methods, this Sony is a solid, versatile boombox radio that you can enjoy in any room of the house or outdoors. It\u2019s portable enough to take with you and has a long battery life. If you just want radio, maybe the Panasonic RF-2400D is a better bet. But if you want versatility to play CDs and cassettes, this is a good buy for enjoying those playback methods.
