The Coby CX-CD241 Portable CD Player is a stellar choice if you are looking for a portable CD player, since most of us have MP3 players nowadays it is a rare occasion that we need a portable CD player. However, when my ten year old CD/Stereo finally bit the dust, I needed an inexpensive method for playing my CD collection other then my Laptop. Thus, I found the Coby® CX-CD241 for $24.99, and I was immediately impressed. The CX-CD241 looks really good for the price, the unit looks really futuristic and it is avaliable in many different colors including Red and Silver. The color in which I chose was Black, because it matches most of the other electronics that I have in my home. Because I only use this device for listening to my CD collection I was not really interested in the Radio part, but I have used the radio and I must say that the sound quality and reception is phenomenal, especially if you live in a city in which there is a good quality of stations to choose from.

The CX-CD241 boasts a pretty compact design, I was able to place it on my kitchen counter next to a toaster and it barely takes up any space what so ever. Naturally portability is important, I have taken this CD player to the beach with me twice and it delivered phenomenally clear sound on the beach as well, and the CD’s didn’t stutter or skip, which is also great because I hate it when a CD continually breaks up during a song. Another thing that I like is the fact that the CX-CD241 is only four pounds, so needless to say this is a very lightweight device that you’ll be able to carry around the house to different spots with ease. Operation of the CX-CD241 is very simple, in fact this portable CD player is ideal for everyone from seniors to teens, you will definitely appreciate the ease of operation and minimal learning curve. The CX-CD241 also features a built-in alarm clock, which also has the option for you to wake up to a CD track, or the built-in radio option.
There are also programmable track options, a telescope antenna, and CD, CD-R, and CD-RW compatability. The unit does tend to drain batteries with constant usage, depending on the quality of the batteries I can squeeze three hours of life out of the CX-CD241, and that is using cheap batteries. However, if you don’t want to pay for batteries there is also a built-in 110/220 Dual Voltage cord, so you can just plug the CX-CD241 around the house. The CD playback function is also flawless, the Compact Disks load up very quickly, and it has never skipped on me yet, and the sound quality is phenomenal with great bass and treble. You can change the bass or treble settings, but it seems like the built-in settings are great, you really wouldn’t expect the sound to be so full from such an inexpensive product.
The Coby CX-CD241 Portable CD Player is a great inexpensive CD player for someone who wants a boom-box and wants to experience their music on the go, and without breaking the bank. Whatever you use this boom-box for, whether it be a church function, outdoor event or birthday party you will definitely have gotten your monies worth with this excellent boom-box from Coby.
