Summary: The JBL speaker dock we received was defective. It would randomly pause or shut off, randomly turn on and start playing, randomly shuffle songs at odd intervals. We tried two different iPods and both had the same results. VCT Electronics return policy is very odd. Communication with them has been ambiguous and poor. They responded after we returned the unit that their technician tested the unit for several hours and it works perfectly.
Summary: I've had the JBL On Stage 200ID Speaker Dock for two months. Almost immediately after plugging it in, I discovered that it has a mind of its own. While my iPod is docked and playing, the speakers will change songs and pause, all on its own. At other times, when my iPod is docked but off or on pause, the speaker will randomly start playing on its own. It sounds good when it's playing . . . but I just can't control what and when that is!
Summary: I originally bought this speaker for the iPhone 4S and it was the perfect speaker dock for that phone. The sound is better on this speaker than most other docks out there including some of the pricier models. It can handle all the high, low or mid range pitches that you can throw at it and beautifully.
Summary: I really love this speaker dock. I have Ipod nano 4th and 6th generation and both are able to play on this. The sound is great. My husband even said, "that is coming from that speaker? That sounds so good!". We both enjoy it so very much. And the seller packaged the item really well and it came quickly. Overall very pleased.
Summary: I purchased 2 JBL studio monitor speakers years ago and still have them to this day. When I purchased this speaker dock I read many great reviews and decided it was the best product for my needs and my budget. I am very pleased with the quality, and for the size, it is as good as my original JBL speaker purchase.
Summary: First, the clear plastic IPod and IPhone holders do not allow the pod or phone to make complete electrical connection to the 30 pin male connector on the dock. The male 30 pin connector though holds the IPod well enough to be ok and work with the dock. The sound is good and much better than the IPod or IPhone speakers.
