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.
Summary: I was drawn to the Geneva S because of it's gorgeous, minimalistic look; but what really hooked me was the quality of the sound. For such a compact docking station, it fills my home with crisp, clear sound. The price was a little higher than I was originally looking for, but I honestly tried over 50 slightly cheaper docking stations and just about every one either felt cheap (like it would break with the smallest jostle) or distorted at merely moderately high volumes.
I'm a professional mastering engineer....and I think this thing sounds amazing!!!!

Summary: I'm a professional mastering engineer for 16 years now and must admit - I have developed a level of snobbery about good audio that most would have trouble rivaling.......and I LOVE the way this little guy sounds. Smokes the bose, ihome and sony dock/radio set-ups you see in most hotel rooms etc. Room filling sound that still maintains some semblance of imaging.....just righteous. The controls are fast and responsive and the look is sleek and sexy.
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: My Geneva Sound dock is like Artwork. I have the Black Piano Finish. It sits on a table in my office and fills the room with sound. The beauty of the product makes it fit in with the professional decor perfectly. I love the way it looks!!! but better than its looks is the SOUND. The one little black box fills my space with sound, so rich and vibrant, that sometimes I have to remind myself that it is all from that beautiful black box.
Great sound and good looks for a medium-sized room -- in a surprisingly small package

Summary: 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.
