The radio has only 3 stations that come in clear. It has been suggested that the location I have it could be the problem. I disagree because i've had another boombox in this room and had no problem tuning in many stations. The CD Player and Tape player work fine.The tone off my tapes and D's sounds good to me. I like the style and size. Also, it is simple to work the different players, well marked and placed on the case.
