I am not a person who has to have all the top sound systems to play my music, full of bass where the floor vibrates. As long as I can listen to music, sometimes loudly, I am happy.  However, since having my I-pod, I have been looking for a docking station through which I can play and listen to it. 

This product has enabled me to do this, and I am sure I am not using it it to its full potential however I am enjoying listening to my music through it. 

The product itself is very compact, not like the speakers of old, which looked huge and stuck out like a sore thumb in a room. This is one unit which can be placed on top of a unit, and not look out of place. They are quite heavy comparable to size but easily manageable. It is black and would therefore suit most decor. 

When I took the unit out of the box I was easily able to set it up, connecting it to my I-pod using the wireless transmitter. The bag of backrest adapters looked confusing, however I followed the guide in the instruction manual and found the one for my model easily. After connecting it up - it was now that I found a problem: I had plugged it in, switched it on at the back, switched the I-pod on and selected a track, but no sound?? I consulted the instruction manual, a very thick book but only 23 pages in English out of a 400 page manual! The manual does not contain many words though, lots of pictures, great, but very little text and only so much can be shown via pictorial methods! Cue having to ask my hubby to help - 2 minutes later and it was fixed - the volume control is via touch, once he had shown me this there was music. 

After listening to a wide range of music: Rock, Country, Pop and Classical, I am  really pleased with the unit. Great sound, easy to use (once used to the touch volume controls) and looked good on shelf too.

It is possible to connect a further two of these units together, along with a sub woofer - perfect for music lovers.

In summary, a great looking and sounding system to play music from i-pods, and/or computers, easy to set up and sound quality excellent. Recommend to all!

I received this item as part of the Amazon Vine Programme.
