Dynamic Bass Boost maximizes your music enjoyment by emphasizing the bass content of the music throughout the range of volume settings--from low to high at the touch of a button! Bottom-end bass frequencies usually get lost when the volume is set at a low level. To counteract this, Dynamic Bass Boost can be switched on to boost bass levels, so you can enjoy consistent sound even when you turn down the volume. (Avoid extensive use of the set in a volume higher than 85 decibel because this may damage your hearing.)

Digital Sound Control offers you a choice of pre-set Jazz, Rock, Pop and Classic controls you can use to optimize the frequency ranges for different musical styles. Each mode uses graphic equalizing technology to automatically adjust the sound balance and enhance the most important sound frequencies in your chosen music style.

Just got this the other day. Here are my thoughts:

* Gadgetry
Okay, this thing has all the technology - It's got bluetooth connectivity, including the ability to play music from another device wireless and answer phone calls (built-in mic). It has an SD card slot, and a USB slot for other devices (haven't tried this out yet). It has an iPod dock. It'll even rip your CDs. I haven't seen anything on the market with this many options.

* Ease of Use (Interface)
This is where things start to go a bit off. It's not the easiest device to use. The display doesn't show the most relevant information. For example, if you're looking at it in bluetooth mode, it just keeps repeating the words "BLUETOOTH" in caps on the screen. But that's redundant because I already know that fact due to the big flashing blue light in the corner. Also, though this thing looks like a clock radio, it doesn't function very well as one (it rarely shows the time throughout the various functions - alarm is hard to set).

* Sound
It's fair - Not a whole lot of bass, mids are a little muddy, highs are very nice. Having said that, I don't have a comparable reference - I'm comparing it to my home stereo system and the bose wave radio.

* Quality / How's it Look
A good looking device - Definitely doesn't look cheap. It's got a big back end on it, but overall isn't too large. Fits on my nightstand just fine. The buttons are a little plasticky.

* In Summary
I'm going to continue using it - if only because there's no stereo out there that has this mix of features. I bought a bluetooth adapter for my ipod touch. It's very cool that I can be sitting anywhere in my bedroom and picking music. And if it runs short on batteries, I can drop it right into the ipod dock. But... I'm going to have to dig my 15-year-old clock radio out of the closet.

This Phillips BTM630 Bluetooth Wireless Micro Hi-Fi System with i-Pod Docking Station has great looks and good sound, & almost every kind of media playback potential that is currently being used by the masses. So I thought it would be just the right thing to get for my wife, who wanted something she could listen to in various rooms of the house without having the main house sound system blaring.
We haven't tried it with an iPod, or other solid-state playing device (MP3 player, USB drive, etc.) but we've used both the tuner & CD player. The Tuner seems to work like a charm.
The CD player worked great for a few weeks, but now it stops playing after just a few tracks are played, and cannot be made to play other tracks. The CD's are in good condition without smudges or scratches. Using the old computer trick of cutting off power to reset the device, we tried to reset it by turning it off & on... which only temporarily helped. We also pulled the plug & replugged it, with similar results. However, that technique no longer works. The user's manual doesn't address this problem in the instructions or the troubleshooting section.
We got this from a re-furbish reseller through Amazon (assuming that whatever problem it had would have been repaired) and I understand they don't deal with warranty issues, so I guess I'll have to contact Phillips to see if I can get some help, or a replacement.

The problem I have with this system is the sound. Overall the sound is muddy and harsh. We also have a Sonic Impact I-P23 Portable Speakers for iPod and the sound is far better for half the price.

If you want a cool looking clock radio to play your IPod at low volumes, get this. If your looking for a higher quality stereo sound, buy something else.

I received this yesterday from a Woot sale. I'm pretty happy with it so far. I was able to set it up quickly, and I have to say I'm impressed with the unit so far.

The Pros:
-Works with the 3G iPhone: I was a little worried that it might not work, as Phillips doesn't specifically say so. But when I got it, I was able to physically dock the iPhone and play my music through the system. I was also able to easily pair, and connect via Bluetooth. Furthermore, it charges the iPhone/iPod while docked.
-More connectivity than you can shake a stick at: We keep my girlfriend's mac in the kitchen, and this system was meant to replace that as a music player. We can now connect the mac via USB and play through here. We can listen to the radio, CD's, her iPod and even SD - though I'm not in the habit of carrying my music around on an SD card.
-The sound is pretty good: I'm not an audiophile, and the reason we got this was to have something that could put out music at a level louder than the mac's speakers. With that said, this system can get pretty loud (so much so that when I was setting it up in the kitchen, my girlfriend hollered from the upstairs bedroom to turn it down). The highs and mids are pretty good, and the bass is OK for such a small unit. It's not going to win any awards for the crispest, clearest sound, but I'm happy. Furthermore, this system will be perfect for the small get together's we have in our town-house when we're entertaining and have a group of about 8-15.

Cons:
-The bass tones could be stronger.
-The controls feel plastic-y, and without the remote the system would be a bit of a pain to deal with (volume through the remote is easy, changing radio stations through the remote is easy.
