Summary: I purchased this item because it advertised increased range over the Soundstation 2. Not only was the range not as good as the SS2 I used to own, but there was significant echo and noise. I ended up returning it. In addition, I found out the hard way that it is NOT compatible with their Computer Connect Kit. The dealer they referred me to said that I could use an after market connector, but right after that, they stopped returning my email.
Summary: Purchased this item to support teleconferencing in a large room and am quite pleased with its performance. It delivers crystal clear sound and the microphones do a great job of picking up comments without participants needing to raise their voices. I highly recommend the product.

The remote audio also cut in and out when used in a large noisy seminar room. I read a Polycom whitepaper that suggested that suggested the VTX 1000 as a viable upgrade ([...] We ordered one and were not disappointed.
Summary: This seems to be a quality, well-made product and the sound is very good. I'm not sure that the sub-woofer is all that useful, but I would recommend this for small/medium-sized conference rooms. The satellite microphones are a big plus. Our employees like it.
