"Good crisp sound but amp keeps dying on me"
26 August 2011
Pros: Simple setup, unit looks nice and sleek
Cons: I've had to take in my unit for warranty three times within the year of purchase. All three times was because the amp on the subwoofer failed. You'll notice the base going on and off intermittently.
Summary: Sounds great with the extra bass punch. Beats out my Bose iPod player with a fuller sound. Remote not real strong but is fine. Having the separate wireless bass that is adjustable is the best part.
Summary: As a sound system, it's great. Unfortunately I live in an apartment building so I can't turn it up ALLLL the way...only when my neighbors are out of town. I've started DJing at parties I have at home, and the place feels like a club when music is playing - you can REALLY feel the bass. In terms of construction, the system itself is solid - but the connection for your ipod/iphone is HORRIBLE. I think it's about to break every single time I hook up my iphone.
Summary: I just got this unit. I love the look, the build quality, and the sound. All top notch. However the primary reason for purchasing an ipod radio is to listen to streaming audio. When the subwoofer is active in this unit, my wi-fi network (off a new Netgear Wireless-N 300 Router)is obliterated. When the subwoofer is off, audio streams to ipod touch just fine, and I get 12+ Mbps download on my desktop using a Wireless-G adapter.
Good solid Ipod speaker system with great sound and relative portability.

Summary: I was in the market for a relatively small ipod speaker system with the ability to hook external sources as needed. Although the feature set is small for this system, it does what it's intended to do and it does it well. Product is well built and nice minimalistic look to it. Set up took 5 minutes and playing music off of it was simple. Sound quality is fairly even, although due to the subwoofer, the sound can get very "bassy".
Summary: This Boston Acoustics HIDS3W powered system with WIRELESS SUBWOOFER IPOD DOCK is the best of the best!! It blast, cranks out anyway you can say it Greattttttttttttt sound. My daughter says its the Bomb. Its sturdy and pretty, its only flaw is the remote control its just ok. 2 THUMBS UP BOSTON ACOUSTICS and AMAZON.COM for carrying this sweet machine.
Summary: When I first purchased the Boston Acoustic ipod system I was a little worried at first because no one has reviewed it, and I wasn't very familiar with the Boston Acoustic brand. But now since I have received the system, it is the most amazing thing ever. The sound quality is great and very loud. The base has overpowering sound. Overall this sound system might be better than the sound system that I currently have in my Jeep Wrangler.
