Excerpt: I admire the courage that some companies have to launch “iPod only” products, at first that seems to be the case with the Geneva Sound System XL because it contains an iPod Universal Dock, but don’t be mistaken by that small detail, the speaker can actually work with other MP3 players.
Excerpt: FM radio suffers only from the lack of a mono button to clean up weak stations — and with the larger XL we noticed less of the L’s penchant for spreading any hiss around the room thanks to that Embracing- Sound.
Summary: One person’s brilliant is another’s ridiculous, and both words were used in equal measure when the Stuff team came face-to-speaker with the Geneva XL for the first time. One thing’s for sure: it certainly provokes a response. But then, how many other gigantic, 38kg, square iPod docks are out there?
