Summary: I bought this from a warehouse after much research. In a nutshell, this is great for areas where a smaller footprint is helpful. I have another Bose system I'm replacing this with in the bedroom, so I can bid farewell to the wired speakers, mounted on the walls and the control unit taking up a bigger part of my nightstand top. I sold audio equipment many years ago _Bose included _ so out of the box, this unit is fairly heavy for it's size. Quality construction IMHO.
Pros: space saver portable
Cons: less bass than i would like older iphone connector not version 5 or >
