Top Customer Reviews
Despite what the other reviewer says, this unit DOES work with the new 2nd gen Nano. I have a green 4GB Nano and it fits perfectly on the dock. Granted, the adapters may not fit the Nano I have, but it frankly didn't need one. It stood tall on its own with no chance of damage due to it incredibly low weight.
The bonuses of a built in alarm clock and the option to run on AC or battteries makes this product a done deal for me. I couldn't be happier.
For the unit's size, it's a great little iPod clock radio with decent sound. Having the ability to add our iPod nano when we want a little of our own music is a nice feature. It also has a miniplug line-in for other MP3 players if you don't have an iPod.
The RAP10's (+): the price is right, the sound is quite good for the small size, the small footprint is nice as we have limited counter space in the bathroom, the option to use 6xAA batteries rather than plug it in, the AUX jack, the remote and the backlit display.
The RAP10's (-): the case feels a bit too "plasticy", not much bass response (but it is a small unit), no radio presets and using the FM antenna is required to get some radio stations and having the wire hang off the unit is cheesy.
Overall, I really would recommend this unit for anybody not looking to spend over $100 for an iPod speaker system that has a radio and is portable. We have been very happy with ours and hope that it lasts as long as the CD boombox it replaced.
Cons: Lacks bass and midrange. A little hard to carry around, it's a small round case and there is really nothing to grab onto.
The device is good. Looks good and sounds good too. BUT BE AWARE THAT THE plastic attachment (holder) will NOT work for your NEW iPod Nano or other. BUT IT STILL WORKS without the attachment.
The only drawback is the compatibility with iPod. Previous reviewers had cliam different results on the same product. Let me tell you the real truth.
My iPod Nano 2nd Gen is NOT fitting the attachment but it CAN work with the machine if you don't use the attachment. It works great but you need to carefully plug your iPod Nano 2nd Gen into the connector and not to break it because there's nothing holding it. I am not sure if it will work for 3rd Gen iPod Nano or not. The attachment shift a little bit from iPod Nano 2nd gen. ANyway, I can try to DIY on holder instead of calling JVC to get any help. :-)
