Question ID: 188465
I am looking to buy a portable stereo (boombox) with the following

- has a radio tuner
- has speakers (optional)
- Under $100
- line in (a input to accept a RCA (other other) cable from a external
device (like an ipod)
- line out (even a headphone jack will do) if I want to play the radio
into my PC for recording shows

Hi Sherpaj,

I searched directly in many manufacturer sites and found numerous
results for boomboxes. Unfortunately, many don't have detailed specs
so that I can verify if the products have your requirements. The
following have the features you are looking for:

Price: $69.95
• Digital AM/FM Stereo Tuner
• Line-In: (Multi-Audio Input)
• Line-out: Headphone (stereo mini jack);sid=KH6q6sZGIMKq7vjTa4Kg4YlIfHjEe3Xcsxo=?CatalogCategoryID=z5kKC0%2eNjZwAAAD04zI6ymyy&Dept=pa&TemplateName=item%2fsy_item_b&ProductID=DpMKC0%2eNcNkAAAD0Qmg6ymy2&ContentItemPage=

Price: $79.95
• Slim Style AM/FM Stereo
• Line-In: CD/Line-in Jack
• Line-out: Headphone Jack

Price: $69.95
• Slim Style AM/FM Stereo Radio
• Line-In: CD/Line-in Jack
• Line-out: Headphone Jack

Ebay have many results for boombox but the products don't have
detailed specs:

In case you need to find more, you can search the results of the links

Search strategy:

boombox "line-in" line-out"

Direct manufacturer site search for boombox

I hope this helps you. Should you have any comments/questions, please

thanks for the great research.  The Sony CD/Radio/Cassette Boombox
CFD-S550 is the perfect one.  Do you think there is a cheaper place to
buy it other then sony's web site?

Hi Sherpaj,

First of all, thank you very much for the great rating and tip. I
searched Google and eBay for the SONY CFD-S550 but found only one
result with a very slightly lower price:

J&R Electronics, Inc.
SONY CFD-S550 Personal Audio System (Silver) - $69.88

If you're looking for a cheaper boombox, you can buy the Sony CFS-1055
Portable Stereo suggested above this comment by my excellent
colleague, Pinkfreud. It's only B$61.69

Search strategy:


"CFD-S550" - in
