Many of the Amazon reviews mention the weight of this unit as a negative attribute, even saying that the unit is not truly "portable". I wonder if these people have ever owned true high-powered, quality speakers. This boombox is SO loud and sounds SO good, I'm suprised it doesn't weigh twice as much. If I had wanted a light radio with tinny, empty sound, they could be found for hundreds less in any discount pharmacy store. For those that claim you can't take this thing to the beach, poolside etc., I would recommend vitamin supplements. Not only is it easy to carry, you WILL be the envy of wherever you bring it.

I bought this as a gift for my wife. I considered a BOSE or CAMBRIDGE tabletop unit, but decided I would opt for something she could take poolside or on weekends to our small cabin. This radio looks gorgeous on granite kitchen counters, wooden bookcases, on top of the piano, on a desk, anywhere. Pre 1970, radios were made to look like furniture that would fit virtually any decor. Once things started going solid-state, manufacturers tried to make everything look "futuristic". Most modern radios are loaded with silver plastic, faux chrome, and redundant or decorative knobs, speaker grills and the like. Why on earth would I ever want to have something like that on display? This thing is a throwback (think Tivoli model 1).

Sound is exemplary. SO loud and CLEAN. I've tried it with a thumbdrive, iPod, and FM tuner. All great. No hop from the woofers, no clip from the tweeters. It sounds as good as any BOSE, without needing the counter space for the circuitous porting.

With its leather strap, minimalist style, hidden function indicators, and outrageous sound, I consider this to be the best dollar-for-dollar value in the portable audio market.

I would also second the advice to turn the volume on your iPod to zero, and turn off the iPod EQ.

I couldnt be more pleased.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
When I received the TDK boombox it would not power up. I contacted customer support. They asked me to return the item to them. I did. They returned the same unit back to me at which point it worked fine. They had a quick turn around time and they called me the day they looked at the unit. They said the unit worked fine for them and that there was no malfunction. They apologized for the inconvenience. I run the help desk in the IT department of a manufacturing company and I know a malfunctioning device when I see one so I don't know what to make of the incident but I guess I can conclude that customer support was quick and although I suspect their findings the unit works fine now.

I had the boombox on for 8 hours today and it worked fine. It gets slightly warm but not hot. The boombox charges your ipod. There is no docking port but there is a recess on the top of the unit where you can safely park your ipod as long as you are not moving the boombox.

We have bad radio reception so the boombox only picks up 2 stations. It displays the song title and artist that the radio is playing.
There is no remote control. The unit is HEAVY and big. It looks cool though. My teenager thinks it looks chic. I'm not sure he's ever used that word before so that's telling.

The sound is fabulous. I have tried a variety of smaller speakers for my ipod and the sound of this boombox is in a completely different league. Having said that, if you point the boombox away from the neighbor's house you can get great sound in a particular direction without necessarily disturbing the entire neighborhood. I'd say I had the volume on 4? ish and the sound filled my lawn without being a nuisance.

Upfront - if you are not the slightest bit of an audio snob, this thing will probably satisfy you. It's 85% of the way to being a really cool product, however, for me and at $400 I want 99%.

All of the other reviews are relatively on point, it is heavy, it will play loud, it does look sexy as a supermodel.

From an audio snob's point of view here are my complaints:

1. The AC adapter, iPod cable and antennas are all external. Meaning you could have as many as 4 plugs hanging off this thing in a mass of black wire spaghetti. For $400 I want an internal antenna, internal cable routing, all of that. There's no reason a product designed to be this stylish should have a mass of cables hanging off.

The AC adapter, AM and FM antennas all plug via various mini plugs into the back of the unit, meaning they stick out, so you cannot lay it down, which is just stupid. They are all removable, and you KNOW you're gonna lose 1 or all of them.

2. The sound is not worth $400. I know a lot of people have praised it, however my own ears are picky snobs and I didn't enjoy the sound of this at all. It's fatiguing, a little harsh and slightly boomy. The boomy bass distorts the midrange at frequencies near the port resonance as air escapes through the front speakers where the tweeters are mounted.

That said it sure as heck is loud. Sometimes quantity is its OWN quality, I leave it for you to decide. But if you are picky about what you listen to, you will be unsatisfied. It's just loud.

3. The overall quality is an issue as well. Some parts of the construction of this thing are great, the leather strap is like a nice belt. The faceplate is sleek and shiny. But I had the constant feeling that this is a cheaply made product.
