With all the construction going on next door, I've been searching for a good sound machine that is compact and doesn't take up too much space on my nightstand. This Big Red Rooster machine is just that. At 4 inches by 4.5 inches by 2 inches, it fits nicely on my nightstand and when not in use, my drawer. The machine can run off a wall plug or batteries so very portable. It comes pre-loaded with 6 sounds that are much better than some I have tested in stores. The Nature sounds - rain, creek (brook), ocean, thunder and summer nights that has crickets are very natural sounding and the white noise sound is great for blocking out all noise. It includes a timer for 15, 30 or 60 minute auto shut off or it can stay on all night.
Very simple to use, large buttons so easy to see and great sound quality. Excellent sound machine at a great price.
