Great Sound at a price, with one important design flaw.
11 June 2006
Summary: Pros: Great sounding speakers with plenty of power to fill a room. Excellent Bass & Treble response. The best I've heard for its compact size and small footprint. Cons: 1.) The SoundDock uses an external transformer. You have 13 feet of power cables to tuck away.
Summary: Pros: Sounds great, looks good, easy to use. Remember, sound quality will depend on your encoding rate, and even the quality of the software used to do the encoding...if you encode at 128 kbps you're likley to notice that your MP3's don't sound so good on high-quality speakers.
Summary: For someone looking for a semi-portable unit for their iPod with a decent range of full sound, this is a solid choice. This is not the choice for someone who wants to entertain on a mass scale, but for an otherwise quiet patio or small room, it is perfect choice.
Summary: First I would like to say that I am not an expert on speakers. I am just someone who loves listening to all kinds of music. The SoundDock from Bose actually delivers pretty good sound for its size. I like listening to music at high (but not extremelly high) volumes, and it performs quite well.
Summary: Many of the Ipod based system do not deliver on the sounds. The sound on this system is very good and much better then the other systems. That being said the other ipod systems are geared to be mobil. This system requires that you plug it in and does not have a battery option.
Summary: The Bose Sounddock is quite good if not amazing. I ordered it at Apple.com after the holidays and it came in 3 days with regular shipping. It is ridiculously easy to set up, and fits nicely anywhere, because it has a nice small size that can seem at times underwhelming.
