This is a stylish stereo speaker with iPod dock, Bluetooth functionality and a 3.5mm connection that offers multiple ways of playing music through the speaker. The most impressive feature is the Bluetooth - initial setup was very quick and easy, made even easier thanks to the clear and concise instructions. Now paired with my smartphone it streams music to the speaker flawlessly with absolutely no lag whatsoever. It is also worth noting that the device has excellent range - I have tried the speaker in a different room to the device from which the music is streaming and even on a different floor in the house, always without a hitch.
The speaker can reach decent volumes courtesy of its 15W RMS output without compromising sound quality. The speaker performs well regardless of the genre, therefore offering versatility for those who listen to multiple styles of music - I have used it for acoustic and soft rock / pop music as well as hard rock and metal and the results are pleasing. The bass is very good, and can be improved using the EQ functions on the remote but never over-powers the mids or trebles. It's worth noting that the remote contains the bulk of the playback options with the unit itself just containing a power button and volume control.
Overall, this is an impressive speaker with excellent Bluetooth connectivity and a nice minimalistic style. There is no LCD display; instead functions are indicated by way of the subtle LED light (which changes colour depending on the use, for example red for standby, blue for Bluetooth, green for when the iPod dock is in use and yellow for when a 3.5mm jack is connected) - the light subtly illuminates on the bottom of the unit and really adds to the simple but appealing aesthetics of the unit.
