Summary: I needed a new clock radio and did my review diligence online--came across the Boston Acoustics series. The unit is very well designed and sounds great--particularly like the rotating control dial for horizontal/vertical placement. the controls are straightforward and sound quality is very good for a small bedside or table radio. Reception in Manhattan is acceptable.No cons to date and BHphotovideo as always delivers a competitive and effcient deal.
Summary: I was looking for a radio that sounds great with great reception including AM. This radio did it all, great sounds and easy to set up. I am now able to receive stations in that are 75 miles away. I liked it so much I immediately bought the Duo-i AM/FM Stereo Radio with iPod Dock to put in my kitchen. I have since bought the Solo for my son-in-law.
Pros: Durable, Good Sound Quality, Great Reception, Very sturdy
Summary: We have had the Boston Acoustics Recepter Radio for years in the bedroom and now whe have the new Solo in the kitchen...so the whole house is now filled with a high quality, rich base and "cool" sound...really like the way we can use it in the Vertical position to utilize more counter space..[...
Pros: Good Sound Quality, Great Reception, Versatile
Summary: I own 3 models of Boston Acoustics radios and they all deliver very good sound from small packages. I use the Solo as a clock radio. It works fine and is easy to use. I would give the Solo 5 stars except for the display...it is too bright even in the lowest display brightness setting. The entire rectangular display glows blue with the characters glowing lighter blue. This is fine during the day.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Clear Signal, Compact, Easy To Set Up, Good Sound
Summary: I purchased this on the "rebound" after returning a defective Sangean radio purchased elsewhere. I'm SO glad I did! This radio has fantastic sound and the controls are completely intuitive after the first 3 minutes. There are two separate alarms, each with the option for radio, buzzer, or both; The sounds start low & ramp up- no jarring blare in the morning! I had a question & e-mailed BA support; I recieved an answer in just hours...Sangean had taken a week to answer.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Clear Signal, Easy To Set Up, Good Sound, Great Tech Support, Solid Build
Summary: The radio reception is excellent. It pulls in weak stations clearly. The sound is fantastic for a clock radio. Controls are easy to use and very intuitive. And the radio can be placed vertically or horizontally with its adjustable round clock face!! Well worth the price.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Clear Signal, Easy To Set Up, Good Sound
