This review is from: GEAR4 Duo Speaker Dock for iPod with Detachable Front for Portable Use (Electronics)
I bought the Gear4 Duo after returning a Logic3 WIP016K i-Station RTV which did not impress with its sound quality.
The Gear4 Duo on the other hand is fantastic, with brilliant sound that is almost as good as my Bose SoundDock and with bass that is better than the Bose. It has five speakers, 4 up front and the sub in back. I love the way that the front comes off for portable sound. I love how both the sub and satellite have power inputs and 3.5mm stereo jack inputs, so I can plug my laptop into it. Personally I don't think it's loud enough for a party but then I don't think my Bose SoundDock is either.
Sure the sound stage is quite narrow, but for the price I don't know of anything better.
The only negatives relate to build quality: the front is held on by magnets, but they don't seem to be strong enough and don't line up properly, meaning that if you don't pick it up carefully the front will fall on the floor; the dock seems flimsy and doesn't come with an iPhone dock insert (even though the Gear4 website says that it works with iPhone).
I bought this for my iPhone 3GS and it seems to work reasonably well. It charges & the remote works fine, however the airplane warning does come up each time you dock the phone and if I leave it in phone mode I do very occasionally get interference bleeps if the dock is on.
Overall though I think it's brilliant and would happily recommend it.
