It doesn’t get more reliable than Sony, and this particular model boasts rich bass tones. It also supports AM/FM tuning and even has a CD player. It may be a little bulky for some people, but this is a boom box dock that will appeal to anyone who still hasn’t gotten around to transferring their old high school mix CDs into a digital format.

Overly large size

Older model that’s a little hard to track down

Most useful rave review: “Overall, a good all-round unit, but remember to keep in mind this is no high end boom blasting sound machine.”

Most useful negative review: “When the cd is playing, it makes a hissing sound, and the music sounds all muffled.”

Verdict: As the cheapest model on our list, you’d expect this to have some detractors. While it may not be the most powerful sound you can get, this is a great model for a bargain hunter who just needs to fill a small room or cube with mellow sound.
