5.0 out of 5 stars Great system, a few minor compaints, May 25, 2008
This review is from: ION Block Rocker Battery Powered Speaker System for iPod (Electronics)
Overall, I'm super happy with this PA. It's really loud and the sound quality is great. I would totally recommend it. That said... I'll list of few minorcomplaints/wish list items.

#1--The side handles are almost not strong enough to support the weight of the system. Even though I carry it carefully, I can see the metal bracket bend from the weight.

#2--I wish there were a cover for the ipod dock. I worry that dust will go in that open plug.. iII'v taken to keeping a piece of duct tape covering it.

#3--The best thing about this system is that it doesn't need a power outlet nor generator. But unfortunately, I use it in conjunction with a wireless headset mic, which requires a tiny bit of power. I wish there were a way I could suck a bit of power from it to plug in my mic receiver. I've instead had to buy a rechargeable power brick for the mic. (Black & Decker rechargeable power brick, works great)

#4--I actually don't dock my ipod in the convenient ipod dock, as when I dock it there, it renders the ipod remote non-functional. Instead I lay my ipod on top and use RCA cable to plug it in to the system.

Out of curiosity, how long have you owned this product? Based on our experience, I'll be shocked and amazed if your Block Rocker functions to your satififaction beyond 90 days.

Hi,

Much appreciated if you could tell me what kind of wireless mic system you got please? Did it all come together from one source or did you have to get a few bits of kit... Maybe you'd be kind enough to tell me what brand name you used so i can find it
Thanks

Eoin
