Sunbury on Thames GB Music lover
Just very neat and usable
You have to find another supplier to find a mains power unit.
Also the connector is unique to this unit.
I have other power units from other CD players and mini disc recorders that are interchangeable, but the one for this unit is different (Yet it looks the same as all the others)

The rEAd symbol is a bit weird, the EA looks like ER at first glance and makes you think you have an error. Why they could not make it all upper or lower case I do not understand.

Battle GB Bargain hunter
The CD player did not work. The buttons were black and the surrounds were black. The surrounding was black - if you are over 50 (like me), it would be difficult to see what each button represented.
On the photos, it looked posh - however, it was made of cheap plastic and light.

It failed on the second playing and thereafter showed "No disc" even though the disc was inserted. I had to return it for a refund.

verwood dorset GB Music lover
good clear sound
very difficult to operate with pillow speaker in the dark (and impossible for brother-in-law who is blind) - knobs need to be just a little bit bigger, so can be operated by feel
