4.0 out of 5 stars Best MP3 speaker I've heard, 11 Sep 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: JBL Radial Black (Euro/UK PSU) Mac/Win (Electronics)
I bought the JBL Radial after auditioning a wide range of MP3 speakers (Bose Sounddock: good but overpriced & limited connection options; Apple ipod hifi: most powerful but very muddy at low volumes; Audica MPS1: clear sound but limited bass and expensive; Jamo i300: good bass but lack of clarity; Logitech Audiostation: good user-definable sound but fiddly & too many bad customer reviews).

Compared to the competition, it offered the best general sound - warm with clear vocals, strong bass & good separation given its size. And that's compared with other systems mentioned above that are sometimes 50-100 more expensive. Only fault is that the bass can sound thuddy at high volumes, though (as another reviewer said) this might be due to my music being encoded at only 160kbps. And putting the 'bass reducer' on the ipod's EQ settings at high volumes more or less resolves this problem.

Remote control is by far the best I've come across too - pressing the mode button enables you to not only do normal play/pause/skip track/volume but to also go through different levels of the ipod's menu!

So, overall, highly recommended!
