Summary: I didn't want to fill up my bedroom with bulky stereo equipment so I needed something that could be an alarm clock,stereo,and iPod dock. This gave me all three in an elegant package. I've been really happy with the sound. It can get nice and loud and the bass has a good bump to it.

Summary: For the price, I feel the the fine folks at Boston Acoustics have done a terrific job putting together this little clock alarm. I've wanted to wake up to the sound of beautiful music for quite some time, but was unwilling to spend $350 - $400 on a BOSE to do so.
Summary: First the good news, The "Duo I" has very good sound for a compact unit. Its general appearance is sleek and the controls are simple and intuitive. Also, I would complement the customer service staff both at Electronics Expo (where I purchased the unit) and Boston Acoustics (where a second unit was...
Summary: FM reception is good, sound is good (well, make that great for the price range), *very* easy and tactically pleasant to use (set alarm, etc.) Boston Acoustics Horizon I-Duo Volume limit problem: Mine came with "hospitality mode" enabled, and volume would not go past 19.
Summary: Compared to the mediocre unit that the Boston Acoustics device replaced (by Homedics, and not much cheaper than the BA version) the sound is fantastic. Clear at any volume, without hiss or whine. Having a headphone jack at the front is nice as well.

Summary: I owned the BA Receptor (or "Recepter") and loved it---the rich deep bass, the sensitive tuner, the easy alarm settings...and hated it: no earphone jack, no Remote, no pushbutton presets and, worst of all--no STEREO.
