Excellent unit, wouldn't recommend for people who listen to heaps of rock as it distorts with the high base guitars etc. However for anyone listening to RnB,Pop or dance music, this is a fantastic unit. Light, easy to use, looks great and very much fun to play with. Makes waking up, a whole lot better when you got your favourite song going on the Pure-Fi Express Plus it Outperforms other mp3 docks in this price range. I've had other docks that I've used as alarm/stereo units, but my mom got this for Christmas, and after hearing it I picked one up for myself. I've seen other models that cost twice as much and have a few more features, but I can't tell a difference in the sound quality, and this one has every function I need. The alarm could be a touch louder, but it's a great buy for the price. I love the 360 degree speakers. Maybe it's just because it's new, but this dock has been getting a lot more use than my last one.
