Summary: Great sound from a small speaker, looks good in the corner of the room, but can be carried around from room to room if required. Not really small enough to be used as portable speaker to be taken abroad Comes with interchangeable multiple power ends to connect to most world wide power sources- but also has a built in battery back up the lasts a long time
Summary: If you download the 'Tango Remote' app onto your iPhone, and your iPad, you will be able to wirelessly control your iPad using your phone as a remote! Finding this out has dramatically improved user experience and makes the A3 similar to the much more expensive Zeppelin which comes with airplay!
Summary: Really love this, especially as it means I can use my iPad in TV mode in landscape. Can therefore move it around the house as required. Waiting for instruction booklet that was missing from parcel to find out about charging etc.
Summary: A great sound with punchy base. As commented by other reviewers rather unstable and thus easily knocked over. Also the rubber docking collar which must be fitted to the iPad, whilst can be kept in place and affords some protection in general use precludes the use of the Smart Cover. Otherwise an excellent product.
Summary: It is big and oddly shaped which will not suit all users. However, the product is of high quality, looking and sounding great. It offers a marked improvement of the iPad's own speakers - in fact sound quality is not far from hi-fi grade. My only criticism would be that the speakers are better for music than film (spoken word). I think the speakers lack mid-range power rending the sound somewhat muffled at times.
Summary: Basically I agree with everything that everybody has said so far. Its incredible value for money, (or was when I bought it @ £116 for the black version) came from Germany, very well packed in about 6 days from order. The only minor issue is that you do have to make sure the locking catch on the back is fully over with a firm shove otherwise you have no sound which was a real worry the first time I tried it!
