THUNDROUS BASS THIS IS NOT

shawn t., Newegg
9 February 2010
  • Summary: does what it's supposed to do.. glad JVC re-issued.. but they cut corners in quality unfortunately.. get it when it goes on sale.. trust me..
  • Pros: ipod touch 3g compatible.. protects your ipod from dust/ damage.. all in one compact music system.. gets plenty loud with no distortion..
  • Cons: made in China.. where the older Kabooms were made in Malaysia.. so quality is sub-par.. bass isnt anywhere near the older units legendary bass output.. so be aware of this.. more of a mid bass.. is 40 watts as opposed to the older 52 watt units.. subs are 5 inch as opposed to 6-1/2

Good

Jillz, Amazon
5 June 2012
  • Summary: I was hesitant about purchasing this item due to the varying reviews that I read here on Amazon. However I find the product is good....not exceptional but good. I am a fitness instructor and use it for my classes. It gives a clear good sound and is quite basey.

skippy, Amazon
25 February 2012
  • Summary: I need the machine to paly CDs a lot. Only had it 4 weeks and the CDs are slipping. Amazon are happy to replace/refund no questions. Great sound and the ipod is good but mostly a problem because of the use.

Only me, Amazon

DAVID B, Amazon
4 July 2010
  • Summary: I bought this Hi-Fi on the strength of other reviews .They were wrong , sort of . Let me explain . Although the majority gave it a **** rating , I have given it a ***** rating. The fact is that like most people I try cheaper options first , and ,usually end up being dissapointed .

Works with a laptop as well with the right cable

Mikeyreds, Amazon
27 May 2010
  • Summary: Was a bit disappointed that I couldn't use with my laptop initially as there is no aux in. However located a dock connector to 3.5mm cable that works ie CableJive Dockboss. Also works with my B&W Zeppelin. Sound quality on the boom box is excellent now on iPod, iPad and laptop.
