I wanted a docking speaker for my ipod touch that would charge while playing and for the money you pay for this it is perfect. Im really fussy about 'tinny' sound but the sound out of this is of a good standard. Its a small unit that is perfect for taking on holiday which is the main purpose I bought it for. As for the connection to it, as someone already pointed out the base that comes as standard is too small for the ipod touch but you have to click the white base out which then leaves a wider base that the touch fits in perfect with no connection problems.
For the money it is well worth it and I would recommend it.
