5.0 out of 5 stars JBL ONBEAT XTREME - Class product, 24 Feb 2012
This review is from: JBL On Beat Xtreme High Performance Loud Speaker Dock with UK/EU Mains Adapter Compatible with Apple iOS Devices with Bluetooth - Black (Electronics)
I have to admit I didn't purchase this through Amazon, I bought it from a large retailer in Germany where I live.

However as I'm an Amazon Evangelist this seemed to be the best place to place a review.

This is my second contained iPod dock / speaker system. I have the original B&W Zeppelin which I love and still rate very highly. however having bought an ipad2 I wanted AirPlay. After much research I invested in the OnbeatXtreme, I'm very pleased I did indeed.

It is quite a bit smaller than the Zeppelin, however the sound is very clear and room filling.

I love the design of the unit and it is sturdily and nicely made, feeling high quality. I was concerned that nothing would approach B&W standards, however this does.

The Bluetooth aspect is quite easy to set up and understand, the sound on Bluetooth is excellent. You can play music, film or games all without a delay in sound.

The unit is quite considerably cheaper than the B&W Zeppelin air and actually now feels better quality than the Zeppelin which now feels cheap and very plastic compared to the Stainless steel chrome Zeppelin.

I'm a fussy devil with kit, I always want the best I can get - within limits of course. This item has met and exceeded my expectations and hopes.

Excellent unit, buy it over the Zeppelin which is limited by only having Air play and being too expensive for what it is.
