Summary: A godsend! Since switching to MP3's vs. cds, we've had a hard time playing both on one system. No longer. Since July 2009, we are using the GenevaSound All-In-One L Model to play cd's, mp3's, and stream radio apps from iTunes in our living room. Originally, we thought we may need the Xl model, but the L model is (way) powerful for our 3 bedroom NYC Apartment.
great sound, indoors and out, love this soundsystem

Summary: I was first skeptical about GenevaSound because it looked like it would deliver a boombox sound. You know, it's a box, a single speaker. My husband heard great things about it though so we went to a store that carried it and listened to it. We compared it to other sound systems. We were blown away. The sound doesn't come like it's coming from 1 box, or even 1 point in the room.
Summary: From the moment you get the speaker you know its something special. Everything is packed in so carefully in a smart red box and all you have to do is plug one cord in and it works, so it's really easy to install. My old stereo had cable salad in the back on Geneva you have one power cord and no other cables. This all-in-one sleek and stylish home stereo with iPod dock, CD player, and FM radio is a fantastic product.
Summary: I've had my red Geneva Sound unit for nearly 2 years now and am still in love with it. It is versatile enough to deliver sound from my blu ray player, docks my iTouch and can hook up to any Mp3 player. The Sound quality is on par with the better Bose SoundDocks. For me though top marks for the aesthetics. It's just beautiful.
Summary: I am a professional musician and music producer who demands excellence in sound reproduction. I own two Geneva sound systems - an L for home and an M for my office. The L replaced my home stereo about a year and a half ago. I'm extremely happy with the purchase. At high or low volumes (high when my wife is out of the house) the sound reproduction is outstanding. I use all the functions (CD player, ipod dock and FM radio) on a daily basis.
Summary: I stumbled upon Geneva Sound's consumer products early-on; a local electronics store just happened to be one of the very first authorized dealers in the US. I was instantaneously smitten after hearing a Model "L", and purchased one on the spot. It has since been relegated to the bedroom, as I ordered an XL less than 6 months later.
Summary: the Geneva design is awesome. Really nice finishing, painting and good quality metal. Sound is ok. Disappointed with the bass level (for sure could be better, heavier and stronger) and lack of line out to connect additional wireless speakers for other rooms.
Summary: I must pass on my feelings about the GenevaSound L . I also stumbled upon the system whilst mixing an album in New York at 'Electric Lady'. I was immediately impressed by both the look and sound of the Geneva. At first I thought it could be a mono unit but was happy to hear that it was in fact a good stereo sound. The thing I like most about it is the frequency response. It's a crisp clear bright sound, but the bass response is still strong and defined.
Summary: Back in the day, actually before my time, televisions and stereos were designed to be both functional and beautiful - they were considered furniture, an essential complement to a well-designed room. Now, of course, function trumps form for most electronic gadgets, and most are ugly. With the advent of flat screen LCD televisions at least they don't look like the hulking monstrosities that overwhelm the room like the big TVs of the past couple decades, but it's still true...
