Wrong AC adapter, and no ipod adapter.

Summary: Logitech Pure-Fi Anywhere 2 Compact Docking Speakers for iPod and iPhone (Black) I ordered this for my son's graduation Friday morning. It is now Wednesday morning. The thing came with a non USA, ac adapter. There is no iPod adapter as promised. The manual is the pits. I don't know what to do. I am bed ridden and cannot trot down to Radio Shack for new adapters. Amazon has always been wonderful to me before. I am pissed.
Summary: Just bought this at local chain for my wife's mp3 player (NOT Apple - so connected via Aux Input). Sound quality is great BUT the unit shuts itself off even on AC mains power when playing quiet music passages (appears to be a battery saving feature). Found quite a few others reporting same problem on internet and even Logitech's own website. Did the "reset" as instructed. Contacted Logitech customer support.
Avoid this product! Not as good as their older models!!

Summary: I already had owned the Logitech mm50. It worked (and still works) great! I wanted another set, but they had discontinued the older model and had the Pure-Fi Anywhere 2. I figured it was pretty much the same as the old one, so I bought it. Bad idea. The auto shut-off is HORRIBLE. BUT, my biggest complaint is that the battery doesn't last anywhere near as long as the older model. Easily less than 50% as long.
Summary: Using my IPod 5 in the dock,(not through the Aux port), my Logitech Pure-Fi Anywhere keeps turning itself off mid song, loud or soft, for no reason at all! It's like a big hand came out of the blue to slap you to say, "Wake Up Stupid, I'm OFF and you have to turn ME back ON if you want my pleasures!
Summary: I hate this unit for one reason only, this auto turn off feature. How can something so simple be so flawed? I mean its just an amp and speakers how do you screw that up? I wanted to be able to carry this unit with me to use for various portable reasons like meeting presentations etc. Found myself in an awkward and deeply frustrating situation where this unit kept turning off during a presentation I was using it for, even after I plugged it into a wall outlet.
Summary: Well, my turn came--it worked fine for 3 months, and then repeatedly quit playing after 2 minutes. It was never on battery power, it was always plugged in. I was on hold endlessly with customer support when I read all these reviews of people having this same problem with no viable solution (so I hung up, why waste my time?). One reviewer got it right--the good reviews are by people who just haven't hit this wall of dysfunction yet. It will happen to every unit.
Don't buy it, the bad reviews are true, you won't be the lucky one!

Summary: I liked the small footprint of this speaker dock and its portability. I really liked that it charged my iPod, had 4 speakers, had controls right on the unit. I loved the sound it put out for a speaker in this price range. I also loved that it had a remote that not only controlled volume and switching tracks and playlists but also accessed the menu button so I could go to other apps on my iPod. Seemingly the perfect speaker dock. Right?
Summary: The product worked fine for a week and then the sound faded out after runnibg for 1o minutes using either house or battery power. This was an Xmas present for my son and I was embarassed by the poor quality.
Summary: I purchased many things from Amazon, but this is the first time I returned a product I purchased to Amazon. At first, I liked this iPod speaker because of its compact size and good sound quality. I thought it perfectly fit my needs in terms of portability, sound quality etc. However, it had a major flaw. It shuts off whenever music plays softly for more than, say, two minutes. According to Logitech's explanation, it is a feature to save battery power.
