Good Value – But Do Not Expect a Miracle

jerry i h, Amazon
8 February 2014
  • Summary: Yes, a lot of money for what is functionally just a clock radio. The capabilities of this thing does justify, but just barely, the high price tag. I do recommend it, but only if you need this unit's added capabilities. Bose Wave Radio? I realize that this is the big question you wish answered: how does it stack up to equivalent Bose thingie. I cannot make an honest statement, as I do not have one on hand to compare.

Fail

Amazon Customer "Trig42", Amazon
11 December 2013
  • Summary: Out of the box, it's not compatible with iPod5, and when you go through the trouble to buy a 30-pin to lightning adaptor (which in my opinion defeats the purpose of the dock) it doesn't even work! The seller, Infintiy Sales, was moderatley difficult to deal with, but eventually approved my return. Sadly, I had to pay to ship it back to them and insure the shipment, and on top of that was subject to a 20% restocking fee [UPDATE - for what it's worth, this fee was waived].

Disapointed

Howard, Amazon
16 October 2013
  • Summary: I have an older model of this radio. The subwoofer went out after a couple of year. Also the buttons on the unit had started to wear out. You had to push very hard to get it to work. The company offered to fix it if I paid for the repairs. I would not buy another one.

Good sound but poor quality

David W. Berkowitz, Amazon
7 October 2013
  • Summary: I have an older version of the 755 namely a 740 CD but my complaints about it are very similar. The only good thing I can say about it is that the sound is very good. Otherwise here are some of my complaints: 1. When power is lost, all presets are lost. 2. The clock is very inaccurate. 3. The volume control only works correctly if I turn it slowly. 4. The AM and FM reception is not very good. 5.

Not as good as the CD 745

Dennis Pechek "Dennis", Amazon
27 August 2013
  • Summary: The older CD 745 was an outstanding sounding music system. Great bass, nice highs and good stereo separation. The newer I755 is a cheap knock off of the older model. It weighs approx 5 pounds less, has less interface options and the sound in very "tinny'. The rich deep bass of the CD 745 is missing. A side by side comparison really makes this apparent. As with the older CD 745, the AM reception is poor and the FM reception is passable.

Poor Product, Poor Service

Andrew J. Hardy, Amazon
14 August 2013
  • Summary: I ordered this radio through Amazon. The radio arrived and only one speaker was working. Later without explanation the second speaker started working. Also, this radio does not work as advertised. They do not say that it is not compatible with the new iPods. When i contacted customer service via e-mail (as they never returned my call) they recommended I get a 30 pin to lighting adaptor.

Excellent sound

  • Summary: Produces the sound that Bose claims. Good bass without boominess. Nice, warm sound with excellent transient response. Wish it were made in America.

Cambridge SoundWorks i755 Table Radio with iPod Dock

Lowell Gustafson, Amazon
4 December 2012
  • Summary: The sound quality and radio reception is very good. My only reservation is that setting the alarm seems complicated. I am able to set it, but it is always a bit of a hit or miss affair.

Do not buy this

Cerise, Amazon
28 August 2012
  • Summary: Have bought 3 and recommended it to 7 of my friends much to my regret. On all 3 of mine the CD function stopped and says 'no disc'. The first purchase was before the new owners and the man immediately sent me a new one. This one stopped in the same manner again and when found out it would be $150.00 to repair decided to buy another new one. The new one stopped very quickly but after the warranty of course.
