Review submitted for Roland CD-2i CD/SD Battery Powered Recorder (ROLCD2I)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Versatile
Other Comments: I record my Organ / Keyboard lessons with my teacher at hand. I love its compactness and full features; enough for my use. The 2 speakers are very small and, of course, do not provide the most discerning of sound quality, but they are sufficient for my needs and once I transfer the music onto a CD and play through a good sound system, there is no comparison...the sound is great.
I recommend this product Yes, I recommend this product
