The appearance and sound quality were very good with this system. But the overall quality was so disappointing that we returned it. Read more ›
I couldn't take my eyes off of this beauty for 10 mins. The sound is great, and to top it all off it plays an Ipod. What more could you want. Read more ›

I will share Gizmodo's sentiment about this product 100%. This booooombox doesn't have to sound like a Harmon Kardon system. All it has to do is look good next to cardboard and play N.W.A., Nolan Thomas, Warren G and Kenny Loggins the way they were meant to be heard. That, it does.

It does take 10 "D" cell batteries, and I found that you can find a pack of 10 at Target for about $9 if you hunt around, AND you can prolong the life of the batteries if you make sure to switch the AC/DC switch on the back to AC when you are not using it. Otherwise the clock (any "sleep mode" functions) will suck the battery life down. That or it all transferred to the iPod. I'm not sure - just make sure to flip that switch.

It even comes in a huge box you could cut up and breakdance on.

I just received my Lasonic i931 and I'm in love. The lows sound great, as do the mids and highs. It looks amazing and the remote is awesome. I was blasting my Tribe Called Quest and couldn't be happier.

PROS - I mean look at it, it's awesome. And it sounds great too!

CONS - 10 D batteries? Are you kidding me? Good thing there's a plug. Also, I'm not convinced that this actually recharges your ipod as you listen to it. The ipod says it's recharging...but I'm not 100% sure...

Ever since I was little I always wanted a boombox like my man radio raheim. I had been looking for them for a total of three years now that I can afford one. My only setback was the fact that I wanted a new one, with the bboy look to it. I couldn't find one new. So I decided just to wait. One day I stumbled across this boombox at urban outfitters. I was sold from the moment I laid eyes on it. I couldn't take my eyes off of this beauty for 10 mins. The sound is great, and to top it all off it plays an Ipod. What more could you want. I find no cons to this device. Some people say that the fact you have to buy 10 D batteries a con, but I beg to differ. I spent 70$ on ten rechargeable batteries and a recharger so I'm straight. Can't wait to bring this to South Beach and The Puerto Rican Day Parade!!!!!!!!!!!

Sound quality:
So so. It sounds like a mediocre box from the '80s ( although better than most things that are available today)..not bad, but nothing to write home about. It does not hold up to the better boxes of the past, but that shouldn't be surprising. The treble frequencies are reproduced clearly with little or no harshness, the same for the midrange. Bass response seems to roll off at about 100-120Hz.
The good news is that it has separate bass and treble (-7 to +7 Db) controls, so your not limited to (often useless) pre-set eq settings.

Radio:
AM reception is so awful that I thought something was wrong with it. All I could pull in were the strongest local stations and not very well. After talking a look inside (I wasn't about to send it back over poor AM reception, and I have a background in electronics) I noticed one of the most minanal AM circuits I've ever seen, and a VERY small coil bar. Replacing the tiny ferrite bar brought reception up to less than average instead of almost deaf.
If you are planning to listen to the AM band be repaired to be disappointed.

FM overload city. One station (100KW that's about 8 miles away) over more than half of the dial covering over most weak signals. However medium and strong signals come though just fine. A FM mono switch helps clean up fringe signals.

MP3:
The USB port reads your PMP/MP3 player like a disc (you can't use the controls on your player), and also charges the device (you may not want to do this if you are running "D" cells as it will drain them). The card slot works as it should (I have not tried a card that's over 2G, so I don't know if it will read HC cards).
Navigating is done by browsing though folders (F01 F02 ect.

Lets put it bluntly. If you want sound quality to be your top priority, you can do much better than this boombox for the price. But if you've seen the pictures of it, and think it looks awesome, then its probably worth picking up.

Lets be honest, a system with 4 inch woofers and 1 inch tweeters, that sounds this 'poor' (relatively speaking) is kinda disgraceful. Its not bad by any means, but you'd think such a huge system (and it is surprisingly big) would be able to fit the technology in there to make it sound better. I have speakers smaller than this unit that sound much better. To be kind to lasonic though, my guess on why the speakers are this week is that the entire system was designed to work on battery power alone. But this baby uses an ungodly amount of battery's, leaving only the dedicated to actually go out and go 'portable' with this unit. So the vast majority of users will probably just use this as a really cool looking shelf unit. To them, they might find the sound some what lacking.

That being said, this box is surprisingly useful. It has an aux in jack for a microphone (with built in echo effects for massive awesome), so you can use this to rap over beats, easy karaoke, or even a make shift PA system if your so inclined. It also has a plethora of inputs on it. From the useful (regular aux in for mp3 players, USB port) to the kinda weird (SD card slot?). But they do get points for that. Its even a functional alarm clock as well, and its pretty easy to set to boot. Its got pretty good radio reception as well, though I never played much with this, as I never listen to the radio.

As far as ipod integration goes... well they get points for trying. It plays the ipod just fine, secures it well, and the ipod even looks cool in there.
