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: 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
Summary: Upon receiving the box it came in, I noticed how relatively small it was compared to the actual photo off the website. And when taking the unit out of its packaging, I realized that not only was it smaller in size, that it was lighter than expected. So I gathered my 10 & 7 year old sons to put it all together for me, and when everything was set up, we connected each of our iPods to all the 3 different ports.
Pros: Compact, Durable, Good Sound Quality, Lightweight, Multiple Auxiliary Ports, Powerful, Super simple to operate
