I also looked at the Kanto SYD 4 and 5 (80 watts!), Klipsch iGroove SXT (kind of wimpy looking although seemed to have decent sound at the Apple Store), Philips dc570 tower (maybe too bulky looking but 100 watts) & the clock radios DCM250, Polk iSonic (seemed nice and booming, but expensive & people think the LED screen is too bright at night), and JBL On Stage 400P (seemed to provide really solid and powerful sound but I find it kind of ugly), among others.
This provided the best combination of sound, power (30 Ws) and sleekness. I am a minimalist and you can't beat this Yamaha speaker dock for how clean, sleek and compact it looks. For power in a self-contained iPod speaker, I'm convinced that the Kanto SYD 5 is the way to go and I was thinking of buying it. But I'm not 20 anymore (I'm 39) and I don't need to blow people (or myself) out of the water any longer. Plus the SYD 5 is pretty stinking huge and this Yamaha, is compact and sits on my bedroom nightstand beautifully.
There are a couple of foibles. It doesn't have an aux line in. Why in the world they wouldn't just put that in is a headscratcher. But it wasn't a dealbreaker for me. It doesn't have radio, which is fine since I can just stream stations and use Pandora from my iPod Touch. But the most significant foible is that the remote only controls your own music library. If you are playing Pandora, the remote does not operate the controls for the next song or to switch categories. I forget but some iPod dock speakers allow you to use the iPod Touch/iPhone as its remote control so you can have full control of the streaming music, not just your music library.
But all these foibles do not overcome how much I like this unit. And at $169 with saver shipping from Amazon.com to Hawaii (shipping is routinely an issue for us), this was a great deal. I may one day buy a SYD 5 for dual use with iPod and maybe my TV, but for now, I'm really glad I bought this and it was exactly what I thought I was getting.
Though I am not a die-hard music aficionado, I am like most people who love music and want to hear all parts of it in full clarity, as if you are in-studio or at a concert, all at a reasonable price. After using this unit for a number of weeks I am very happy with it and highly recommend it. Just yesterday I heard sounds in a song I have been listening to since childhood that I had never heard before, that is when I decided to write this review. The sound quality is fantastic, not too tinny, not too bass-heavy, no weird echo-like sound, just wonderful. This goes for music from John Denver to The Beastie Boys to techno-dance to Brandie Carlile with the Seattle Symphony and everything in between. Incredible.
I purchased the grey color and am very pleased with it, the white trim seemed a bit bright at first, but I like it much more than I would have liked grey with black trim. The rectangular shape is clean and neat, fitting perfectly on an open bookshelf and lends itself well to moving around into other rooms as needed. There are no other bells and whistles, like a radio or clock, but I didn't want any thing other than a quality dock and leave it to Yamaha to do just that.
Note: I am using this with a second generation iPod Touch and must remove the bottom part of my case when I dock it. If you see a red light it indicates a connection is not made, which worried at me first but I figured it out quickly.
