Summary: Overall this is (was) an OK product. The bass response is surprisingly good for it's size and it really fills a room with sound. The settings and controls are easy to use once you figure them out. Unfortunately, after a few years of modest use the unit failed.
Great room-filling sound from a small(ish) package

Summary: We've been using the Duo-I for about two years as our kitchen sound system and I've been very happy with it. The sound is full and rich for what we listen to: acoustic music, rock, pop and some R&B.
Summary: The Duo-i Plus unit worked fine for about one year, and we were quite satisfied, but then, one day, all of a sudden, all functions stopped working. We checked with Boston Acoustics online support center and they confirmed that the unit was definitely broken and in need of repair.
Summary: I bought this radio about 3 years ago after hearing one in a brick and mortar. I was impressed with the sound so I ordered it on line. While everything worked as expected it was a 5 star product. Unfortunately, that didn't last too long.
Summary: Have been high on Boston for years. Knew this product was discontinued. So pleased it was located, purchased and received. Had a chance for a test-listen before giving it away. It is every bit as awesome as I expected. Am going to order one for ME. Can't give a higher recommendation than that.
Summary: So far I'm happy with my purchase of the Boston Acoustics Duo-I Plus. The only things I don't like are the long white antena wire on the rear of the unit, wish it was placed internally somehow. Also the black model I choose is a dust magnet. Other than that, I love it!
Summary: I purchased this radio for myself several years ago, when I balked at the price of similar Bose stereos - Let me just say, that I'm glad I didn't pull the trigger on the Bose stereo! This does everything that I could ever want a portable boom box with iphone dock to do!
Summary: Owning two other Boston Acoustic radios, we ordered this for the study because our other Boston Acoustics radios draw hard-to-reach, out-of-town stations with crystal clear sound and lovely tone. But now we wanted to connect our IPods to the new radio to hear our playlists.
