Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Many docking speakers struggle to make themselves heard, either because they don't have the volume or lack clarity. The Boomdock doesn't struggle.
The volume range goes from a whisper to absolutely, bloomin' too loud. Really, standing right next to this thing, I couldn't turn the volume to full. My sister gave it a go and the windows literally shook, whilst small objects danced across the table. If you like loud music, then you'll like this, the neighbours though... For me I couldn't really conceive of a time when I might need to play music that loud, that might just be me, but it's nice not having to struggle to hear over the sound of everyday background noise.
The Boomdock really handles bass notes well, you can feel them in your chest and through the floor and furniture. They never become loose and flabby at high volume either, retaining a definition as good as your music file. In fact audio quality isn't diminished for the sake of quantity at all and you can get as much out of a track at any volume.
A docked iPod can be utilised with the remote control, so you have effectively a very decent home stereo, and one that has cool, understated design.
Versatility hasn't been forgotten about either and there are multiple options with the boomdock. Having standard left/right audio in jacks, other audio equipment than an iPod can be connected. I tried with a Sony Ericsson w995 and got satisfying results, though the full range of functions that you get with an iPod aren't available. Televisions and computers ought to work just as well. An FM/AM radio and alarm clock function complete the range of features.
The asking price in light of this review is reasonable as other docking stations in this price range and higher may find it hard to compete with.

I bought a boom dock and have been happy with it for just over a year when out of the blue it has stopped working. By that I mean when you plug an ipod into it it does not play songs from it. The radio function still works just not the ability to play an ipod - I have tried 2 different ones to make sure it wasn't the ipod at fault. Any ideas any one?

I'm sorry P.C. Mchale, I don't know what to suggest. I use mine with my phone, so I'm not too up on ipods. There's an FAQ over at the manufacturer's site. http://www.kitsound.co.uk/contact/
