I was in the market for a relatively small ipod speaker system with the ability to hook external sources as needed. Although the feature set is small for this system, it does what it's intended to do and it does it well. Product is well built and nice minimalistic look to it. Set up took 5 minutes and playing music off of it was simple. Sound quality is fairly even, although due to the subwoofer, the sound can get very "bassy". Luckily, the subwoofer has a dial that allows you to tune the level of bass you want. Wireless technology worked great and easily filled the room with sound. A little pricey than other ipod speakers, but if you want fuller sound you have to pay for it. Fits perfectly for a small city apartment that needs quality out of the box sound. If you want features, look elsewhere. If you want speakers to play music for your ipod and have a fuller sound to your experience, give this a try.

I just got this unit. I love the look, the build quality, and the sound. All top notch. However the primary reason for purchasing an ipod radio is to listen to streaming audio. When the subwoofer is active in this unit, my wi-fi network (off a new Netgear Wireless-N 300 Router)is obliterated. When the subwoofer is off, audio streams to ipod touch just fine, and I get 12+ Mbps download on my desktop using a Wireless-G adapter. When I turn the subwoofer on, the ipod touch can no longer connect to the network, and I get 1.5 - 3.0 Mbps download speed on my desktop. If I were only concerned with playing stuff from my music library, I would love this unit. As it it, I'm going to return it.

As a sound system, it's great. Unfortunately I live in an apartment building so I can't turn it up ALLLL the way...only when my neighbors are out of town.

I've started DJing at parties I have at home, and the place feels like a club when music is playing - you can REALLY feel the bass.

In terms of construction, although the system itself is solid, I've come across two issues:

1)The connection for your ipod/iphone is HORRIBLE. Just be careful when connecting your ipod/iphone as there is no support for it. If your phone accidentally gets nudged or leans, you could break the pins. To avoid this, just stick to using the audio input in the back.

2) I think I must've gotten a semi-broken system because after 5 months of use, the subwoofer stopped working. At first, the bass would just go in and out during a song. Later, it just stopped working altogether. Since it worked (sometimes), the support center sent it back to me saying they couldn't replicate the error. However, after 20 minutes of playing music - it's stopped working again. Hopefully after sending it back a second time they can help me out.

In terms of sound, I would most definitely recommend getting this product - it's great! Just hope you get one that works and doesn't break!

When the system works it sounds great! Clear highs and with excellent bass. Very good sound separation as well with good staging. The problem is that the wireless sub-woofer cuts in and out. I tried placing it in different locations in the room and also tried different channels (it has 4 separate channels in case you have 4 of these systems in your house) but it gave the same behavior every time. The only way to resolve the issue was to turn off my WiFi network. This was not an acceptable solution as I love streaming Pandora on my Iphone through the speaker system.

Boston's customer service is excellent as they replaced the unit but the new unit gave the same exact behavior. I'm bummed as I love the sound but it won't work with a WiFi network.

I purchased this unit originally to use in my office as I spend long hours at work and I loved it so much that I ordered another one for my kitchen! This unit is so easy to set up my grandma could do it :- Also, the wireless subwoofer puts out quite a bit of base for being so small. I highly recommend ordering one (or two) of these!
