3.0 out of 5 stars Looks Great, But Poor Sound., January 25, 2012
This review is from: Xtrememac IPU-SAS-11 Portable Stereo Speaker with Dock for iPod, iPhone and iPad (Electronics)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Xtrememac Soma Stand is sleek, handsome and compact enough to take anywhere. It is fairly well built and not too heavy. The triangular design is unique and the foldout of the iPod/iPhone/iPad stand is convenient. I also liked the convenience of having four AA batteries as a backup in case you want to take this somewhere where there is no electrical backup. Do note that the plug is a larger box and will take over two electrical inputs. The cord is barely long enough; about four feet. The sound is going to be better with the cord than the batteries.

Despite its great appearance, the sound is disappointing. It is stereo but there is virtually no punchy bass even though the treble is good. To charge and play my iPhone, I had to take off the Otterbox so it would fit on the charger stand. That I did not care for. For its compactness, appearance and convenience, I'd say it's a nice charger/player for your device, but the sound is simply not there. I'd venture a guess that the price will drop about half in a few months. Logitech has some similar devices such as the Logitech Clock Radio Dock s400i for iPod and iPhone and the Logitech Rechargeable Speaker S315i with iPod Dock in the same price range with at least equal sound quality and more features.
