Overview

Our take on the Sony ZS-H10CP

If you're on the go in the great outdoors, here's one CD boombox that can keep up the pace. Sony's ZS-H10CP features a rugged, durable case with water- and dust-resistant seals. The lid for the built-in CD player forms an airtight seal to keep it safe from the elements, while the sturdy handle doubles as a protective bar to shield the lid from falling items. Control knobs are large for easy operation — even if you're wearing gloves.

Control knobs are large for easy operation — even if you're wearing gloves.

In addition to regular CDs this boombox also plays MP3 CDs, so you can enjoy several dozen hours of music with just a couple of discs. The 'H10CP's built-in digital AM/FM tuner give you even more listening options. Whether you're listening to discs or radio, the 'H10CP delivers your music in full sound with deep, rich bass.

I'll give this five stars but the big test for me is yet to come this summer on the Lake Michigan beach. Love the controls, the aux input location, and the nice bassy bottom in the sound. Durability hasn't been challenged yet. And I have not yet used cd's...mostly an iPod guy.

Features

Overview: The ZS-H10CP is a heavy duty CD boombox that is great for the jobsite, workshop or backyard.  The rugged and durable design incorporates a water and dust resistant seal that protects the boombox from the elements. The boombox is also easy to carry because of its oversized handle.

Formats Accepted: The ZS-H10CP will play back CD, CD-R, CD-RW and MP3 files recorded onto a CD.

Note: Playback of DualDiscs is not guaranteed on this player due to the fact that the audio material on a DualDisc does not conform to the Compact Disc standard.

ID3 Tag: This unit conforms to versions 1.0, 1.1, 2.2, 2.3 and 2.4 of the ID3 tag format.  When an MP3 file has ID3 tag information, the song title, artist name and album name can be displayed. ID3 tag information can be displayed with up to 15 characters.
