Really pleased :-),
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gear4 HouseParty Rise Docking Station Speaker with UK/EU Mains Adapter Compatible with iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4, 4S, iPod Nano 5th Gen and iPod Touch 4th Gen - Black (Accessory)
I'd been looking for a combined dock / alarm clock / speaker for a while but wasn't sure about taking the plunge. So glad I did - this is great! I looks really smart and is not too big to condider taking away on holiday as a speaker system for my iphone (one of my other criteria).
It took five minutes to set up, the app works really well and the remote contol is a neat extra. The alarm clock buzzer is a bit lame but you can wake up to the radio or your music so it's not a massive concern.
The main thing I'm impressed with though is the sound. For a little package you get decent volume (although the dial starts at zero it needs to be on about 10 before you actually hear anything - goes up to 32 I think) and the bass is really good. It's not going to impress music purists but for the money (£40) its well worth it.
