Well, based on the other great reviews I just purchased this item and set it up with eager anticipation.
What a disappointment!
It feels and looks quite well built, everything worked straight out the box and even the remote works perfectly. The problem is with the sound. It's certainly got punch, but it's also lost quality. I'm playing classical music which I know sounds absolutely beautiful on the Bose...and it sounds maddeningly ordinary and dull on this. I tried to improve things by adjusting the treble / base but no matter how I set these the result was wrong.
Also, it sounds mono, which I had never noticed or even thought about when listening on my mates Bose Ipod dock.
Probably great for a kid's bedroom but no good if you want to really enjoy the music.
