Great Speaker Box for bedroom
on December 31, 2012
First, not understanding why so many compare this to a Bose (the Wave is 5x the price). If you are looking for that sound, it comes with a price. If however, you are looking for a clean-designed speaker system for a bedroom or small room with Bluetooth, this fits the ticket.
Granted this does not have the bass that I would wish for; but at the same time, looking at other Bluetooth units they are either ugly, lack any decent docking; have extremely tingy or muddled sound... and none have any decent bass. If bass is important than you'll really have to shell out around $250 or more. This is only a 10 Watt system, so the other complaints seem to be desiring something that 10 Watts simply can't deliver. I would have to say this thing puts out great sound considering its low price and wattage. This is the best sounding and designed Bluetooth speaker system at this price range.
-Sound is very clear and distinctive
-fits well on bookshelf
-special rubber feet absorb vibrations from the speaker box so it doesn't rattle items off the bookshelf
-Bluetooth works like a charm, through walls, and even outside the home from at least 50 feet
-cradle system that makes sense (support)
-comes with a special cloth to clean it
-remote works and skips/pauses/stops songs through phone/iPod
-Bluetooth and docking give same sound quality
-Bass boost really doesn't do much (the only reason I gave this a four star rating instead of a five)
-App for phone unnecessary (I would skip it as the phones play fine without it); actually I can't figure out what the app does for you that you couldn't do with the phone's software.
**NOTE** To get the most bass out of the unit, make sure it is on a hard surface, with its back close to another hard surface (have the "vent" tubes pointd towards a hard surface as these can help transmit the lower register). Also angle the speaker box so that the sound deflects off of the wall at angles, it will make the speaker system sound louder.
