Play and Charge Your iPhone

The CA-492 works with most iPods and iPhones. An adjustable slider allows you to move the docking station in or out to keep your iPod or iPhone secure while it plays.

While docked, you can jump from song to song on your favorite playlists directly from your iPod or iPhone. And since the CA-492 conveniently charges most iPods and the iPhone, your device will be ready to go when you are (note that the dock only charges iPods and iPhones when plugged into an AC source).

Concerned you'll miss an important call while your phone is docked? Don't be! The dock automatically pauses your music when your phone is ringing.

Great Sound

The CA-492 may not be huge, but it's got enough punch to fill a room with sound. The speaker syste is just 4.5 inches high, 8 inches wide, and 3.5 inches deep. It houses two 2-inch full-range drivers and delivers 6 watts of peak power.

If you want to head away from the homefront, the CA-492 is ready to join you. It can operate on four AA batteries, for use at a barbecue, the beach, or wherever else you want some tunes. A handy travel pouch is included for transport.

Adjustable Light

Turn on the unit's blue and red lights and you'll get a nice visual indicator of when your iPod or iPhone is fully charged. If you don't like the lights glowing when you're trying to sleep, simply turn them off; doing so won't affect the charging process.

A solid buy for a pretty decent price.
The sound is clear and the bass is surprisingly good for such a small system.
It's ability to charge iPhone's is nice, since a lot of other iPod docks don't support iPhone.
The speakers also have a built in 3.5mm auxiliary jack which can be pretty handy.
It also comes with a male-to-male 3.5mm audio cord, which has a lot of great uses in itself (car auxiliary ports, specifically, come to mind).
An all around good buy, for a reasonable price.

This is a decent speaker dock with decent sound in a nice compact form factor. It works with, and charges, my iPhone 4 (Verizon) with a case installed so that's a plus. I already have the Altec Lansing IMT320 inMotion Compact iPod Speaker System,which I like but I wanted to try another brand to see how they compared. After playing the two side by side I really like the sound of the Altec better. It's louder with a bit more warmth and bass to it. The Cyber Acoustics has decent sound but it's not as loud at the Altec. The sound is also a bit more tinny. Overall I will keep both as they will go in different rooms but if I had to buy one again I would go with the Altec. The prices are very similar.

Recently received this gadget and was very pleasantly pleased with ALL I can do with it. First off the volume control is the best, exactly what I had wished for, yet so easy to reach and adjust, especially in a bed side position. Sound quality is beyond even a critics remarks. At the lowest volume setting it's perfect for bed side listening. No distortion or tinny sounds. The quality of sound is stero quality. The ease of adjusting volume and changing the music selection is awesome. No more picking up the iphone during the night and fumbling with the volume controls or selecting another "Playlist" to listen too. Even in the dark I can access all controls without turning on the light or getting up. I generate "playlists" in itunes for my iphone with my choice of music to fall asleep too and once the music cycle completes the unit shuts off automatically. I love this little gadget so much I am ordering another one for my office PC desktop. No more hands on when downloading from itunes. No more fumbling with the iphone to select an app. The unit is heavy enough that when selecting apps it will not slide around on the night stand.

This unit is heavy duty and will provide many years of service. The small size is pertfect for my night stand, not bulky or in the way. I also purchased a retractable power cord for use when I travel as I would'nt dream of "leaving home without this unit." In closing people the sound quality will amaze you. I never realized just how many words being sung within a song that I reallly didn't understand. Now I have a new appreciation for the true words within a song and the quality of the artist voice singing it. I can assure you this unit can be heard through out the house. I seriously doubt I will be using batteries for power or the ipod cord that's included with the unit. The speakers are truly awesome. Joe

**This Review is based on the PRODUCT Only.***

I bought this for my husband for his birthday to use with his IPhone 4. It is definitely compatible with his phone. It was a little smaller than I expected it to be. I plugged in his Iphone 4 and the first song sounded horrible but once I tried a few more songs I realized the first song was just bad quality, so if you try it and it sounds bad, just try a different song. We live in a small 2 bedroom apartment and for the most part it generates enough volume to be heard in every room. The volume can be controlled from the top of the dock or from the Iphone itself, but it will not go louder than the volume on your phone.

I rated it a 4 because it's really nothing special and in my opinion $51.00 is a little more than I would pay for this specific Docking Station. So yeah, I would buy it again, but not for $51.00

**I did not have to deal with customer service at all, the packaging was perfect.

I am an older person with some visual difficulties. I bought this Cyber Acoustics CA-942 through Amazon two months ago. The small footprint is a big plus. We each have one on our night stand and like its auxiliary input to connect our small Grace Solo Internet Radios with the included 3.5 mm male-male audio cable. We dock our iPod Touch, Classic and Nano.

There's an adjustable wheel-driven support post for various sized iPods allowing you to control your iPod without bending the 30-pin jack. Don't push the iPod controls too hard or this will push the support post backward, turning the rear wheel and possibly bending and damaging your iPod connector. I suggest holding the wheel in the rear while adjusting your iPod. The support wheel is inconveniently inside the rear battery compartment, and is a bit difficult to reach. I find it best to leave the battery compartment door off the unit.

I like the crisp and smooth sound. The volume will fill a bedroom. The unit is not too heavy on bass, making this ideal for a bedside. The lack of equalizer, alarm, snooze and timer make this ideal for people seeking a simple design.

The top left ON and top right VOLUME step buttons are logically placed, especially for an older person. It's easy to know when the speaker is on as the amber top light turns to blue.

I am very pleased with this Cyber Acoustics CA-492 speaker system and have recommended it to my friend in Western New York.
