User comments: Oscar Fowler: Nice size (not too big/small). Sound is decent (for a boombox). Shows timestamp of MD recordings if available (relatively rare feature), and timestamps its own recordings. The CD->tape recording functions are very impressive. For example, you can set it so that it never truncates songs when switching tape sides during a record - it'll skip the end of the first side of the tape and start the song at the beginning of the next side. Too bad I don't use tapes anymore... Above-average manual in both English and Spanish. Final verdict: I'm very impressed with the features of this unit. I would definitely recommend getting one if you want a boombox that plays everything. Peter Ravn: Can automatically insert track marks after 1.5s drop in sound input, or at fixed intervals (2,3,4 ... 30, 45 min.). Has REC-IT feature that with one button press records the entire CD track you're currently listening to to the end of the MD. CD to MD recording is done digitally.
