Excerpt: I adore Sony as a model and usually believe in its items as these have verified to myself in the previous of remaining great excellent items. I commonly select a Sony item possibly if it can be a lot more costly compared to some other items.
Summary: I needed something for the living room so we could listen to jammy jams on my iPod. I was originally drawn to this speaker because of the way it looks. I don't like the futuristic looking iHome products - I needed something a bit more modern and sleek. I demoed it at a local Target and was sold. The sound was incredible in the store and even better in our living room. The input jack proved handy when I bought a new turntable.
Summary: Amazon advertises this product as iphone compatible, but it does not work with my iphone. I understand from other comments online that both Sony and Apple (and Amazon) are aware of this problem but continue to sell it this way. I plan to return this and request a refund and hope to have no difficulty doing so.
Summary: Wow, I bought this for 105 and thought that was a great price. now it is down to 89. I bought 3 other systems before this one and it is by far the best. It DOES work with an iphone 4! Great bass. Great look. Small enough not to be intrusive but nice enough to put in your living room. The philips travel speakers do look convenient for travel but the sound is not nearly as good.
Summary: We use this docking speaker in our bedroom. Works great, has good sound but a little boomy. There's a bass boost button on the remote that I always have to turn off every time we use the speaker. Just too much bass. Made of quality materials, has some heft, doesnt feel at all cheap. In my opinion it's a little big to be set on a nightstand or small desk but perfect for a shelf unit.
Summary: I looked at several docking stations, really comparing the technical details about speakers, etc. The sound on this one surprised me. I expected it to be decent - it exceeded that by far. Rich texture to the sound and intuitive controls made this a hit.
