Summary: Just got this boom box and I'm a bit disappointed -- the sound is not nearly as good as the other reviews and the writeup here indicated. Really sounds like what it is, a boom box with heavy bass, not a high-fidelity speaker docking system. And there is no button on the unit for fine-tuning, adding more treble or otherwise creating a different mix.
Not bad, hope it gets better with break-in. (SEE UPDATE)

Summary: I was looking for a small portable sound system for my iPod to take on business trips. The MTX looks nice, glossy black like my iPod, and it holds the iPod securely. The sound is acceptable but a bit boomy and shouty. The bass isn't very deep but what do you expect from a box so small? Right now it actually sounds best tilted back, with the front in the air. The bass output is reduced but it isn't as flabby, and the overall balance is better.
Summary: I bought this boom box thinking that it will sound almost like the hi-fi, just because the brand (mtx) and how god are their car speakers and subwoofers. But I'm a little disappointed, it sounds god, but when you put in high volume the speakers sounds with distortion. The bass is to strong, you must equalize your ipod to bass reducer or treble booster.
