Bought it mainly for audio tape to mp3 ripping

**Please note my review is mainly about the usb mp3 ripping feature of this device.

I have a huge collection of Audio tapes some which I bought for the past many years and many which I got from my parents. Now most of these tapes were in a huge box which I didnt open for a long time and it was only recently I opened it and saw lots of rare audio tapes which are no longer available in any format. I felt they needed to be preserved in a better format to last longer. So the first thing I did w...

AZ 1852 casette ripper boombox

This is an excellent piece for the price. I bought this about 8 months back on Flipkart. Only thing is that the user should first know how to use it, instead of grossly blaming the set. After inserting pendrive and casette press play (casette) and the moment song starts press the Blue button "USB REC" on left side. immediately on completion of last song of the side, immediately press the stop button (Silver) just diagonally opposite the USB REC button on left side. If u don't and the tape aut...

Good product and quick delivery

I mainly bought this item to convert all the old audio tapes into MP3 format. The RIP plus feature is excellent and helps to record from FM radio, CD or Audio cassette. The quality is also very good. You just have to monitor a bit while recording from Tape. You need to stop it before the auto stop of the tape and also you need to make sure at the start there is enough buffer before the song starts as it takes about 10 seconds to start the recording.

A Waste of money

It was with very high expectations that I brought this product. Purpose of buying this product was to enjoy the old audio cassettes lying at my disposal particularly after my old cassette player became dysfunctional after long years of service. When I brought this product after reading its features, I was very happy.

But happiness turned to sorrow after a few days when the sound system gave in. Now the audio player has hardly any sound.

Philips AZ1852 Boom Box Review

As per the product manual, it is capable of ripping CD/Radio/Tape to MP3 (USB). While the CD to MP3 works flawlessly, Tape to MP3 is buggy, and works unpredictably. Beware of this before buying. Sound is clear but not great as it lacks the wattage. The LCD display is small and shows only track number, not useful while playing MP3. Overall, it is quite expensive compared to the features.

Philips AZ1852 Boom Box Review

It's a value for money from Phillips. It doesn't have a sound quality like Bose, or features like Sony, but overall, it's good for day to day use. Cassette players have become rare species these days - this one has that advantage + wide range of CD features, and the good thing is you can convert your old cassettes to MP3.

Customer service from Flipkart was extremely poor though - the product reached the destination 10 days after the due date and Flipkart kept on giving lame excuses.

Bang for the buck

I ordered this product, and although it was predicted to arrive a week or 10 days later, it turned up in just less than 48 hours. The packaging was excellent, and the product delivery was hassle free. Philips Arena Store had enclosed a bill within the product.

The sound output is akin to a low-medium priced car stereo, but the dynamic bass boost significantly improves the sound quality. The product works on power but can also take batteries.

The overall feel of the build is not extremely so...

Good product from Philips

It's been around 6 months since I started using this boom box. It scores pretty good on audio cassette playback and cd/mp3 playback if played in a closed room. The bass effect add on feature obtainable by a single button press helps you listen to slightly improved quality of sound albeit scoring a bit less on the mids and highs. It does boom too much sometimes on high volume when the bass feature is turned on. But, for the price you pay for it, it does a very good job with its deliverables.
