From the Swiss firm that first introduced luxury audio fidelity for iPod systems comes the new GenevaSound S - bringing great sound, style and simplicity to the bedroom, kitchen, office and more. GenevaSound S sounds better and does more than any single-function iPod dock on the market, some of which cost 30% to almost 100% more. With more features than single-function docks, GenevaSound S includes the new PowerDock connector, new TouchLight controls, and a digital radio tuner with alarm clock. TouchLight controls are invisible until a hand reaches for the cabinet. Not just eye-catching, it offers extensive control of the iPod menu. (Competitors have limited iPod controls.) When the iPod/iPhone is removed, the motorized PowerDock spins closed and the protruding iPod/iPhone 30-pin connector, a sensitive part, disappears into the cabinet, protecting it from damage and dust. GenevaSound S also comes with a table stand, allowing the user the choice of elevating the system, so it takes up less space on a nightstand, a counter or a desk. The digital radio and programmable alarm make it the best-sounding, simplest iPod clock radio ever, a product segment littered with low-fi sound and eyesore design. It's the first with solid stereo sound and fine design lines.
From the Manufacturer
Geneva Sound System Model S offers superb musical fidelity and the most versatility in its class. It introduces innovations that make Hi-Fi easier, and more eye-pleasing: new TouchLight controls, a new PowerDock connector for iPod/iPhone, and a digital clock radio. TouchLights brighten on contact, giving extensive iPod menu control no competitor provides. When the iPod/iPhone is removed, the motorized PowerDock spins closed to protect it.
Geneva Sound System Model S is the smallest hi-fi system in the Geneva family, yet with full-sized high fidelity. With its patented technology for true stereo imaging, wide frequency range and exceptional audio qualities, many independent reviewers around the world has given the Model S the highest marks in its class.
Winner of the 2010 I.D. International Design Magazine Consumer Products Award, the Model S is available in four finishes: White, Black, Red, and Silver. An optional table stand and a remote control are included.
All-In-One Sound System
Geneva Sound Model S features two full-range 3" drivers, driven by two Class D digital amplifiers that are extremely efficient, with low power consumption. Each speaker is individually powered and chambered for accurate acoustics. Two bass ports with dynamic loudness provide surprising punch for such a small system.
The Model S can dock and charge virtually any model of iPod, iPod nano, iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad. Dock adapters are included to fit your device. (Note that while nearly all Apple media players are supported for audio playback, older models such as the iPod mini, mini 2G, and iPod 3G do not support playback using the Model S' included remote.)
In addition to playing your favorite iPod or iPhone tunes, the Model S includes an FM radio as well as a 3.5mm line-in jack to connect any audio player or laptop using a male-to-male 3.5mm cable.
LED Display with Clock and Alarm
An LED display shows volume, mode, track, and frequency information as well as the time. The clock has a built-in alarm, and the digital FM radio features six presets to store your favorite stations. Control is all with the backlit, touch-sensitive TouchLight controls, or use the included IR remote control.

Top customer reviews
The GenevaSound Small is impressive for a small speaker (smaller than both speakers I've owned), but it just wasn't enough. I tried it in my office and in my bedroom at home. If you're close it sounds great, but it doesn't fill the room like these other two speakers.
I returned the Small and have ordered the GenevaSound Large, which I think will be better for my needs. Don't be convinced that the small can fill a space with good audio like the Sounddock or Go+Play. It's impressive, but more along the lines of a very, very nice clock radio.
This little speaker does sound good at medium volume to higher volumes. Tiny and anemic at low volumes (those acceptable at the work place). The unit is quirky, and very eye catching. Really gets the comments. Would have preferred the M, but just expensive for my budget and needs.
Pros: Beautiful, very high build quality, quirky controls, the red is deep and lustrous. The touch controls are really very cool, and work quite well. Really like the touch to control volume. Sound at medium to higher volumes really is full and sounds great for the size. Built in FM radio.
Cons: even though I love this unit, it has some limitations you should be OK with before buying. Sound at lower volumes is weak and washed out, very underwhelming for a quality product from a good company such as GenevaSound, they dropped the ball on this. The low end just disappears. Controls are quirky, so be prepared to realign your default thoughts, not hard just different (for instance presets on radio are "A", "B",...). Radio is FM only, and not very strong. The supplied antenna do come off, which works well. I find that I am much happier with a HD Tuner attached as an accessory, vastly better sound, and coverage. The remote does not seem to match the build quality.
So my cons exceed my Pros, which is a pause, because I really do like this unit, and use it daily. The sound quality issues do not seem to exist on the M, so if the price of the M doesn't prove to be a problem, you probably will be much happier with it. If the cautions above do not deter you, and you want a smaller form factor, then this unit is a joy.
Happy to learn that a smaller, non-cd playing version was available for $299, a more reasonable price that I now realize is something of a steal. The sound quality is quite good, especially for a small or medium sized room. Surprisingly, while not as high powered as its medium or large counterpart, there isn't a remarkable corresponding reduction in fidelity. Clear, crisp and treble and bass controls actually accomplish a meaningful change in overall sound impact. I am hardly an audiophile, but I have noticed the shockingly poor sound quality of standalone docking stations available at Apple (!) & most other retailers. Apple, which trades in design ingenuity and above all simplicity, offers a bewilderingly bad (and small) array of stereo choices: something resembling a tiny CAT scan-looking machine which sounds tinny, and not something that would look impressive on any shelf. Or, another unit that looks like a bird feeder tray with a tiny speaker stranded in the middle.
The stereo is a fine looking addition to my home and there is nothing on the market that comes close to its design. The lacquered box is brilliant, and looks wonderful in the room, without dominating it. Like the product it is designed to support, it is cleanly made and clutter-free.
A couple of complaints: while the remote is simple to use, I am wondering why the manufacturer chose not to include a menu button for changing the playlists, etc. The menu option is only found on the device itself, and it is far more expedient to just use the iPod controls. Would have also liked to have seen a sleep timer on this thing, even though I would rarely use it. Also, military time as the only option? Really?
Finally, a unique complaint. The play wheel makes a satisfying (some have said annoying) clicking noise exactly like the 1st gen Nano iPods used to do when moving about the playlists. Unfortunately, my cat has discovered the play wheel and likes to manipulate the thing while the iPod is playing to generate the clicking noise. I am hoping he tires of it- at $299 this is an expensive cat toy...
Overall, this is one of the best purchases I have made on Amazon, and I really am pleased with it.
