Summary: I purchased this after checking reviews - it will replace two other Ipod docks that I have owned - their main cons were weak audio and especially weak bass. This Altec-Lansing rocks ! Right out of the box I cranked up some 1988 live Zappa - this IS the boombox that I have been looking for. Good enough for room-filling tight sound.
Pros: Compact, Durable, Good Sound Quality, Powerful
Summary: Love almost everything about this fine product. It charges all of my Ipod's. I love that it has an FM tuner and an equalizer. One flaw is that Altec did not include a headphone jack which I hate but I guess I can live without since the Speakers sound great. Gotta good deal at J&R after having shopped around a little bit.
Summary: I bought this as an anniversary gift for my husband and we both love it. It's portable, easy to use and has great sound! MY husband loves the awesome bass. The only cons are that it is a bit bulky (but still portable) and not the prettiest sound system but if you don't care about that, I totally recomend the system.
Summary: As far as boomboxes go, it simply doesn't get any better than this. My ONLY criticism is that the speakers don't sepparate to appreciate the stereo. Unless you stick your head right up to it, it just sounds like mono. So I bought another one and modified them so they are in sync and one plays the left and the other plays the right chanel. Yes, I like it that much!!!
Pros: Dropped it works fine, Durable, Good Sound Quality, Powerful
