Summary: What I liked most about this unit are its base-rich sound and features rich remote control unit. It has a particularly nice base sound as compared to my Bose Sounddock portable unit. It also added versatility with features such as a clock with sleep/wake-up timer, CD player, FM player, iPod MP3 dock, and USB connection for Flash drives. The remote control unit is also packed with functions including programmable tracks palyback in the CD and USB modes.
Summary: Let's talk first about the big plusses: 1) it has a big box sound, with little distortion at high volumes. 2) the pre-set equalizer is a very nice touch - allows for auto adjustment depending on the type of music (or radio station!) being selected. 3) It's rare to find a unit that has a quality FM receiver, the Ipod dock, as well as a CD player.The ability to link in USB connections and MP3s makes it a virtual all-in-one.
Summary: When we opened the box, my husband and I were very surprised by the shape of this unit. Not being able to see the picture of it on the screen, I was going by what people said in their reviews about this machine, and what I wanted in a compact, one-piece stereo system. But the shape of the unit really surprised me! I had no idea what to expect when reviewers said the shape was unusual. How unusual could it be?
Summary: Well, I wasn't going to spend $600 on a B&W Zeppelin iPod Dock ... and then I saw this unit. Yes, it's look ... and price, sold me on it. Along with an iPod dock (which is smart as you can push it in if you're not using it to keep the visual lines clean) it also has a radio AND a CD player that plays MP3/WMA disks AND a USB port. I have a 6th gen iPod nano on it and the overall look is very cool!
