Summary: Aside from its aesthetic elegance, the Geneva sound systems produce the best sound out of any brand of speakers I've ever owned. Until recently I've sworn by bose which is pretty good, but upon upgrading to the Geneva S my expectations were blown away. While it is the second smallest model they have, this little thing can really make itself heard. Every time my roommates and I throw a party, we use the Geneva S and turn our apartment into a club.
Summary: I have had a ton of different docks... and by ton I mean at least 4... over the years and they all sucked or failed or sucked and failed. This device does not suck. It does the opposite of suck, literally. It blows beautiful sound all over the room. I cannot say enough good things about it. Pros: Well contained unit with incredible sound. Cons: ... Yeah, I'll have to get back to you on that.
Great sound and good looks for a medium-sized room -- in a surprisingly small package

Summary: Length:: 0:39 Mins Geneva Lab is known for setting an early high fidelity sound standard for iPod docking speaker systems, and their latest little tabletop device does not disappoint. It offers a surprisingly rich sound from such a small box, and it has a very simple and elegant design that balances nicely with the aesthetics of the iPods it is designed for -- I've got a couple of nanos and an iPod touch, and it works great with all of them.
Summary: My fiance and I decided to swap gifts a few days early this year since we're traveling from relatives' house to another. Luckily for me, she discovered my Amazon wish list (I was secretly praying that sooner or later she would) and she picked this fantastic unit up for me because of it. As soon as I saw the box, my eyes lit up. Based on everyone else's reviews, I knew it was going to be good. But my god, it is even better than I expected it to be.
Summary: Much better than Boze! I listened to Boze with my iPod and it sounded hollow and flat. Then I listened to the Geneva and very noticeable difference in sound quality, full and crisp. I am a singer and listen to a lot of music and this one makes a difference for the price. Like the other reviewer says, it will rattle a bit if you turn it up very loud, which is really too loud for the space for which it is designed.
Summary: I own the Bose Soundock Bose® SoundDock® Portable digital music system - Gloss Black and wanted a second system for travel. Rather than buying another Bose, I decided to give the GenevaSound S a try. Out of the box, I was very excited. It's beautiful, small, and matches Apple products perfectly. I plugged it in, dropped in my iphone, and turned up the volume and was shocked with how much weaker the sound was than with the Bose. With the Bose, I can fill the house.
Summary: Geneva Sound System Model S, the smallest, delivers darned good sound for a small unit. Really, it's impressive. The design is hip, loft-worthy and a pleasure. The controls are the issue. Previous reviewers have noted most of the problems. I'll add some befuddlement with the alarm. Can't seem to get it to play iPod upon waking. May need some extra trial and error, here, of course, but it shouldn't be so head-scratching, should it?
Aesthetically pleasing nice sounding ipod player for small room/apartment
10 September 2011
Summary: The audio fidelity of this device for it's size is really pretty amazing. Perfect for a small room/apartment. When I move into a larger place this will go into my bedroom. The Ipod interface on the device is really slick and while not 100% accurate it's very easy to use/navigate. I would recommend this product if you care about the sound quality of your music (hence the 300 dollar price point).
