This remarkable system envelops the listener in stereophonically balanced sound, regardless of where they are within the room. Getting the 3D listening party started is a just matter of docking your iPod®/iPhone®- or if you prefer, streaming wirelessly from any Bluetooth-compatible smart phone, tablet, or personal computer- and diving into a refreshing musical landscape.

WRAT Absolute 3D Sound by Sonic Emotion

The iLunar's Absolute 3D sound concept is made possible by innovative technology from the Swiss company Sonic Emotion. Absolute 3D works by processing incoming stereo signals, locating sound objects within the mix, and recreating their original positions using the iLunar's 6.1 loudspeaker array.

Called Sound Field Control, the patented technology eliminates the conventional stereo "sweet spot" so everyone in the room enjoys a natural, immersive listening experience. With remote-selectable 3D modes (Normal, Enhanced, and Vocal), this technology renders an authentic Absolute 3D sonic image and creates the illusion of being in the studio with the musicians playing around you. Every place in the room is the "sweet spot."

Easily stream your music through the iLunar- whether you use an iPhone or iPad,® an Android device, or any other compatible device with Bluetooth capability. Just pair the devices, select your music, and press "play." Bluetooth Wireless StreamingBluetooth Version 2.1 +EDR and an aptX ® codec preserve your music's natural dynamic range for performance that's virtually indistinguishable from conventional wired audio. With the robust data transfer capabilities of Bluetooth 2.1 +EDR, you'll be delighted with remarkably clear sound reproduction. There's even a handy USB port for charging compatible smart phones and tablets while you're streaming your music.
Made for iPhoneiPod/iPhone Digital Audio Connection and Charging Dock

As most seasoned iPhone and iPod users know, you can never have too many chargers around the home or office. The dust-free dock on the iLunar provides yet another way to top off your batteries as you enjoy the super-clean sound of Onkyo's digital-to-digital connection technology.

All audio signals are transported in digital form, rather than analog, so there is much less chance for signal degradation- which means your music sounds cleaner and more faithful to the original. And your iPhone or iPod is charged and ready for when you're back on the move.
Efficient Digital Amplifier Circuitry for Clean Audio

The iLunar employs digital amplifier circuitry to extract a noise-free signal from digital audio sources. Whether it's an AAC file stored on iPhone, or an MP3 streamed wirelessly from your laptop via Bluetooth technology, your music will sound clearer than ever. Because digital amplifiers convert power very efficiently, much less energy is wasted as heat. With no need for a bulky heat sink, the amplifier design is smaller and lighter. Hence, the iLunar generates room-filling power through 6.1 channels while being portable enough to move from room to room.
Trustworthy Design and Quality

Onkyo brings more than 60 years' audio engineering experience to the table when designing its products. Onkyo- the world's leading audio and home theater brand- is admired for its unique approach to design and engineering.

It's a great device which has breathed new life into my old iPod and phone using the 21-pin connector.

Two flaws I've noticed though.

1. The 3-D mode can sometimes distort music at higher volumes
2. The USB recharging feature does not work on my model which is a shame

Overall it sits nicely in my living room. The Bluetooth feature works over quite a distance. It also works on dual voltage up to 220v

Lastly the supplied remote let's me control volume, cue/rew and play modes which is handy

This was purchased at a huge discount and free global shipping thanks to Amazon's Global Saver program.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm in love with Bluetooth speakers that connect to my iPhone. Prior to this one, I've been using a smaller portable speaker from Grace Digital: ECOXGEAR ECOXBT Rugged and Waterproof Wireless Bluetooth Speaker. Since it's waterproof, I even take that one with me into the shower.

This speaker from Onkyo is a totally different device though. It's not portable. It's actually very sturdy. Plus this isn't a battery powered device, it has a cord and power brick just like a laptop.

This is a really nice speaker with a nice sound for its size. It's a short, stout, conic section, that would look kind of like a Dalek from Dr. Who if it had a head.

You have a lot of different options for connecting your iPhone to this speaker:

* Bluetooth is my personal favorite. It's quick and easy. I didn't have any trouble pairing my phone to this speaker, but it has dropped the pairing a couple of times and I've had to redo the connection. One thing I really like about this speaker is that it has a Bluetooth standby mode, where it just sits there like a faithful dog listening for your BT connection. Once it gets a signal from a paired device, it turns on and begins playback according to the commands it receives from your iPhone. That's really nice.

* Physical Dock: Like the product picture shows, you can dock your phone directly to the top of the speaker. I don't prefer this connection because my case makes it impossible to dock my phone.

This unit is a little heavy on the bass for me, but for others that might be a plus. The sound quality is high, as you would expect from Onkyo. It's a very powerful little unit too. I use it in the office and have to keep it on the lowest setting possible even with the door closed. I think the sound would fill a fairly large room quite well.

The dock is meant for an old iPhone 4 hookup, but it has Bluetooth and a USB port, so who cares if you can't use the dock.

I don't own an iPhone/iPod, so the dock on top is useless. The reason I purchased was for the bluetooth connectivity. Pairing one device has gone pretty well, but I think I still need work on the UN-pair prior to pairing to a second device. Eventually got it to work - and I DON'T think it is the fault of the product - just need to get the correct order of steps. It also probably doesn't help that this isn't used every day.

Once paired, it is just like any other BT outlet for sound - control from smartphone or tablet is a breeze and the sound quality is very good. You wouldn't swear that Diana Krall is actually playing the piano in your room - but certainly adequate for having music playing in a bedroom, kitchen, or small office. It sits on a bookshelf pretty unobtrusively, too.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I picked this system up to use on the upper level of the house. I expected excellent sound quality for the price and have not been disappointed. The best thing about the system is that the sound quality really is exceptional in every part of the room. (The hubby quibbles a bit about not being able to adjust the treble and bass on the unit but I am just as happy that he can't play around with it too much.)

As for set up: first thing, we docked an iPhone and played music off the device. (We did have to remove the iPhone case cover so it fit in the dock.) We next set up a Bluetooth connection to my iPad, no sweat, they connected right up. (You can pair up to 8 devices - if you pair a 9th, the first device paired is deleted.) I walked around the lower level while my youngest listened to see how far I could go before the signal was interrupted. (Initially, I traveled an amazing distance before determining that the child was not paying one bit of attention to whether the music was playing or not - typical!) The signal was not interrupted at all when I was on the floor directly below the system and I could walk about 50 feet in the opposite direction before the sound began to break up. We were all impressed with the excellent reception.

The system looks almost as good as it sounds and both my teenaged sons thought it was an "awesome" idea (neither one is pairing any device to the system any time soon if I have anything to say about it).

About the only suggestion I would second is a wireless system that could deliver this level of performance would be sweet!

Highly Recommended.
