I had been looking for a portable cassette/radio boombox for a while and came across this Crosley model, which resembled an old classic Realistic player my Dad owned. I immediately fell for the retro design and had high hopes for it once arrived (and even bought some new tapes to try it out with). Well, I should've known better as with most Crosley products, good looks are all you get. Upon closer inspection the unit revealed shoddy construction, from the cheap plastic casing to the crooked springs inside the battery compartment.
Still, I soldiered on, plugged it in, and turned on the radio first. Reception was serviceable, but AM and short wave reception were practically nonexistent. Then I tried a playing a cassette and that's where the real trouble began. The playback was muddy, garbled, and the music sounded like the unit was submerged inside an aquarium. I feared my tape would jam and cause irreparable damage. Keep in mind I was playing a brand new cassette so any defect there was immediately ruled out. I tried another (brand new) tape and the same thing happened.
It was then I decided to return it and get refunded. Amazon graciously offered to replace it, but I passed and decided to purchase a refurbished genuine 1980s-era boombox instead, which I really should've done in the first place.
If anyone's considering buying one of these, please know what you're getting into, and set your expectations to zero. If Crosley put in the effort to build something that actually works well instead of concentrating solely on aesthetics they'd be a more trusted and respected brand.
Right now their products are nothing more than cool looking toys, and poorly made ones at best. Look elsewhere my friends. Your tapes deserve better!
BUMMER. If you listen to AM/WM radio stay away from this thing. It has more internal (DSP) noise than any radio that I have ever had my hands on...even on fairly strong stations. I'm an AM radio broadcaster, so things like this have a tendency to rub me the wrong way. The rest of it works as it should, though holding down the << or >> keys does not scan though a track, but just jumps to the previous or next track. However, it does "remember" where in the tack you stopped it, thus will resume at that point, not go back to the start of the track. FM is as good as all other DSP radios (yes, of course it's DSP and not true analog). The SW bands are practically useless (but, I'm sure that you would expect that from such a thing). The tape deck is the same deck that is in everything today (same mechanism)..not great, but it works. Of course there is no stereo anything..mono tape head, mono circuity, mono everything. You don't want to record tapes on this thing for anything other than playback on it. The chip recorder is strictly MP3 @128 mono. If you're looking to covert tape to digital or digital to tape this is not the device for you (but, I'm sure you knew that) I'm going to crack it open to see if the AM coil leads are in a bad place, or if there's something I can do about all of the noise, but even if there is; nothing should be sold that's that awful. I knew going in that this thing was a toy, thus I wasn't expecting much, but the AM/MW being that bad is inexcusable...even for just a toy.
