Summary: Excellent sounds. Very clear. Purchased the unit for our New Years Eve Party 2007 and at 9pm it blew. No music for the party! Great. Back to the old stereo and scratched cds. Returned the unit unit when store resumed trading, and had unit replaced. Second unit did same thing, blew after about 4 straight hours of playing. Returned again, store only to happy to give back money. Paid $298 at very reputable store. Very disappointed. Have 80GB ipod with nothing to play it on.
Pros: Looks smart. Used clock while it worked. Compared to other docking stations, this one looked the nicest, it wasn't just a box. Very Clear, very loud. Gr8 for outside parties.
Cons: Huge battery brick! You can't hide it! Blew up twice. Oh did I mention I went to Myer to find a different docking station and the fellow told me all theirs on their shelf were returned as well because of the same problem. Shame!
