Summary: This product is around waist high, the sound quality in my large room of 400 sq ft is awesome, it fill the room beautifully and sounds exactly like Phillips says it does. I tried 4-5 different types of music and everyone in the house love it. Its a great price for product too, very cost effective - many of the small Bose systems are more expensive and fragile and get broken.
Summary: i have been looking for an Ipod docking station that plays good sounding music for the parties we have in our outdoor pool covered deck area, and this is the saving grace of all. i was a bit skeptical at first because it says it plays about 100w and while the sound might not entirely reach the claimed watts it is by far very usable as a music party system with good quality sounding music.
Summary: I bought this exclusively for its alarm function, so I could wake up to music. The problem is there is no way to preset the alarm volume - when the music comes on it is very quiet, but within seconds it is quite loud and you find yourself waking up immediately and panicking to find the remote control to lower the volume [so give it a 5/5 for its ability as an alarm]. No help from the manual, and Philips tech support had no solution either.
Summary: I first thought of getting something like this when I heard the ipod tower speaker at Brookstone (also available through Amazon). That one was a little more than I wanted to spend, so I settled on this Philips unit. The place where I bought it didn't have one set up to audition so I bought it hoping for the best. The unit is fine in every way but the sound which is definitely second-tier boombox quality at best.
Summary: This looks like a great unit on paper, and it looks nice in your living room. But I'm rather disappointed with the sound. Given its size, I had expected a full, rich, and balanced sound. Sure, it was never going to be a "real" stereo, but I thought for sure it would be at least as good, if not better than mid-range tabletop docking speaker systems. Sadly, the sound is underwhelming. To my ear, it's harsh and shallow.
Summary: This product is wonderful - sound is crystal clear even the radio has great reception and clarity. Compared to the higher dollar units this is the same quality w/o the specialty name. Several of my friends boought this same unit after seeing and listening to mine... The unit is also very attractive and takes up little space - can also be moved very easily.
Summary: I have been using these speakers for over a month. And I love them so much, I wanna buy another one for my bedroom. I do wanna state that they don't have any fancy surround, or any of those mumbo jumbo. They are good for raw unadulterated music. But they do have a solid driver, and it has little bit of enveloping effect, because of the way the speakers are designed. It has a Aux-in socket, which comes in handy.
Summary: Just purchased the product on clearence at best buy, and all i can say is that I am extremely pleased with it, I am very picky about what I listen to my music through and this has no dissapointments, keep it in my apartment and the remote is nice to turn it on whenever your gettin ready or just relaxing. USB is nice to hook my laptop up to and AUX port can be plugged into just about anything. Very nice system.
