Superior device but only under the right conditions
9 February 2014
Summary: This set of speakers is underrated. The reason for it is because of the power source is also underrated. The speakers call for 9 volts at around 1 amp for the external power source but I have noticed distortion at high volume. When I use a 12 volt with 1 Amp external power source, the issue is gone. In fact, the speakers sound very good especially at high volume. Take note of this if you own one of these to find a power source like mine. You will not be disappointed.
Summary: This is a great compact little speaker system. It has a decent range on it and it closes up neatly so it is easily portable. My iPod classic fits great on it, although it can be knocked off the charger/system if the speaker is bumped into. It charges my iPod extremely quickly- from almost dead to full power in roughly 2 hours. I have had it bang around in the back of my car when traveling, and I have found it very durable.
Summary: I have had this speaker for 4 years and still love it. It's a bit heavy, but that also makes it more durable. After shaving off the tiny plastic lip on the ipod holder, it now holds my new iphone 4S and works fine without switching into airplane mode and has no interference. The stand in the back is still in perfect condition and I think with normal use, it will last for the lifetime of the product.
Summary: We use this when we go away or if my girls want to bring it to friends house or listen outside! Comes with a nice, soft holder and several different plug attachments for outlets. Very good purchase! Take care..
Summary: This item makes a high pitched noise when it is plugged in to the wall. It doesn't make that sound while running only on the batteries. If you plan on using the batteries its fairly a good speaker. Sound is clear and fills the room. The high pitched noise can be drowned out if you turn the music up loud but if you plan on using it to sleep by or having the volume down low its very annoying.
Summary: I bought this Audio System to use with an iPod Touch.It does not work.Works with iPod Classic but not the Touch. There no exception in the description about using this with an iPod Touch. After encountering the problem, I looked through all of the reviews and found one person who had the same issue. I then decided to return it but your 3rd party vendor/suppler had a 3 day return policey. Now that is ridiculous. This whole experience has tainted my image of Amazon.
Summary: Found that it does not charge the battery of the newest ipod nano, and the sound quality at higher volume becomes distorted. The small amount of saving was not worth the lost performance. Would recommend spending a bit more and getting a better product.
I love this device, but the price hike is ridiculous

Summary: I love this device. It has good fidelity at office volumes, it is crazy portable, and it fits anywhere. Even at medium-high volume, it can fill a moderate sized room with no distortion. Not much bass at higher volumes, but what do you expect. The one star, however, is for the ridiculous price hike on this item. I bought this exact item three months ago for $36.
