The instrument I chose a long time and considered. It is not absolutely perfect, but whatever the cost, I am nothing better in this combination can not find it, and I crawled a little abroad. S cassette it's just wrong. Thus, after a year of hesitation and crawl reviews I bought it on Alza.cz because stores have always had one piece - exposed, fingered. Who wants to make a good decent listening to old tapes and still have a portable device with really above-average sound quality at a reasonable price - then you probably have no choice. Device I have at home two days - it is not impossible that something goes wrong, so far everything is working.
the main priority no. 1 ... it's actually a combination of 4-(radio, USB, CD, cassette) and be careful - a musical input for external device (if a suitable cord can connect a turntable - if it has its own preamp, or cell phone etc.); the main priority no. 2 ... the sound is really great for melting sound colors are endless possibilities and combinations (4 eqalizery, off eq, separate treble and bass adjustment, always in 9 steps from -4 through 0 to + 4 It is possible, not only to add, but also take, which is extraordinary in portable sound each set according to taste, and can really pull a decent sound even from old cassettes or CDs, as well as the icing on the cake can enable "virtual sound", which is essentially an electronic stereo enhancement with the addition of a slight reverberation and thus strengthening the impression that the unit plays a full and broad manner in a large room, somehow plastically (only then is better to lose a step height). This device surprise that even at very low volume reproduces music really huge scope for enjoyment is not necessary to increase the volume - as with most portable devices, the quiet music when it is not half hear music. Loudspeaker first stops its small diameter, but even more surprised by above-average sound of the bass - good sucking drums, no digging into the empty goggle. the main priority no. 3 ... processing quality bodywork and mechanical elements, the mass is heavy, hard and durable, buttons gives the impression of long life and no-tear effect from fingerprints. The quality of the cassette holder is not critical to the drive control does Šmejdová - control is not completely straight (as in šutnů), where the possibility anything to block or damage the halting or the rash pressing keys used in mechanics is semi-direct operation - key classified "thumb" into the rotary path segment and the command key performs substantially always in the same standard manner. The cost is a slight delay execution of the function and delayed audibly - both rotary segment performed measure selected key. It is therefore not possible to quickly press the play though perhaps yes-no when u inexpensive tape drives erratically gets going and can cause damage or tangling. Beware - the only unit of its kind where you just normally (as it was for socazmu) see on the unwinding rolls cassette - beautiful transparent visor. Drive allows the playback tape simply press rewind straight and quietly in the background echoes accelerated recording - it's good for the search spaces ap. the main priority no. 4 ... battery backup for clock, alarm, and especially to set a preset radio station! This is really unique. In other devices (nobody uses battery) on any grid disconnection occurs after a short time (sometimes quite immediately) to clear all preset stations, etc. - It is so annoying that other devices do not use a preset then. This piece was intelligent manufacturer. Other advantages ... it's basically the only device on the market with the above characteristics, the choice Not much, the price may seem high, but if the CD leaves just after the warranty, then it was a good buy even at that price. Furthermore - remote control has a very clever design and is perfectly hold, the buttons are described contrast, entirely white to completely black, which seems obvious, but so far today folklore OTHER ITEMS. Manufacturers perform marking invisible if possible (maybe a light gray to dark gray, etc.). The instrument is not so dramatically deep and therefore fits on the shelf, which has a leading edge from the wall at least 21 cm.
Cons: No major negative. 1 ... unfortunately recorded music can not be transferred to USB (in MP3), as this would gladly paid an extra 500, - CZK to the price. It is a great pity. (Personally, I would pay more and more CZK 1,000 if it were possible to record a music CD, not only play, but this is not really a negative, because it does not speak any portable device, then it would be an excellent device, however.) No major negative. 2nd .. radio has RDS, they do not, therefore, station names, etc. No major negative. 3 ... cassette recorder does have lubricating head, but given the fact that the recording can be used only on tape "normal", I assume that this is not a lubricating head with a bias, but only permanent magnetic materials. The usual, I tried to record - was the result when you play on the same device good, reducing the overall dynamics of the recording is only slight and can call sound settings. The instrument is simply not hi-fi center. When inserting cartridges, you must be good to settle down, otherwise it happens that after closing the door knob and play jumps back on the ground as if stiff cartridges. No major negative. 4 ... I do not know why the manufacturer chose cartridge up and down the CD in the drawer, about to have a reason, from my point of view it does not win: on the tape recorder and key unnecessarily dusty and you can not have a camera on a shelf too high ( otherwise you will not see on the control cassette) and CD drawer seems threatened by sliding it against any object, or it breaks off children, or simply stop functioning (more Klump, what can break). Difficult to assess the legitimacy of the structure. Flip the cover over the keys tape - do not know who it will close permanently-open, probably will remain permanently open it and dust will be the keys. other cons: no button on the device to receive the "mono", is the only driver on the "FM mode", hereinafter the "mono" is holding station only when the station stored in preset or not, and is required for each tune (manual search ) always then possibly set "mono". However, each of this unit, which has a memory backup AA batteries certainly saved stations in memory controller. It is also a pity that adding whittling-bass-treble is possible only via remote control. The weight of the device is surprising - high, but it also gives the impression of solidity. To give him eight batteries, so it's transmitting just for athletes. trivia: I personally do not like the instrument from scratch so many berev mask metallic black, oval-dark silver metallic body and grip tape player with an ordinary gray. Not much, but it is not essential. Furthermore bothers me that the door is closed with tape decks have yet somewhat cranny of the face side, should more closely Dovira. Finally symbols on the buttons to control the tape recorder is only knoflíkách displaced (no color) and lettering for the individual keys are silver and in the case of storage on a shelf at head height will not be visible. I solved it by sticking labels directly on the keyboard (note that the detached sticker may fit into the drive). Finally, I am surprised how heavily the instrument is on the top cover (for stereo-) vented (and indeed there is a lot of hot) - and contrary to collapse when the handle is a substantial part of the ventilation handle covered (better to leave the handle slightly odkopené). Of course, related to this dense dust intake into the device - thus sometimes necessary to use a vacuum cleaner, duster help. It may surprise somebody, that are embedded in the device or the batteries in the remote control (2 AA). Instruction is cumbersome design - a sort of hybrid A4 multilingual and there on the tiny columns of text - not much, but today it is customary even for more expensive devices. I can not judge ... and traffic control USB-MP3, because I do not use it. quality radio reception can not objectively judge ... I compared it with my other device (JVC portable triple) and it's the same thing so I would say that the tuner will average standard level without any major surprises.
