4.0 out of 5 stars sounds perfect but whats with the loose base??, 1 Jan. 2008
first of all, can anyone who owns a BOSE dock say something about the comparison of it with a Klipsch? all the Klipsch people are either totally insular and know nothing about BOSE/scared to deaf by the price, or are really roaring out something real, that klipsch is indeed better than BOSE. can anyone shine some light on why? and how?

ok, mine BOSE dock is just as expected, very rich bass and clear trable, full range, very fine tuned loud and low volume accuracy.

there is one question, the oval shaped base where you stick ipod on is a big loose, it sorta moves up and down, leaves a see thru gap between the base and the metallis mesh on the speaker panel. can anyone corroborate that it's a common feature??
or should i bring it back to te shop?

i can see nothgin broken, no screws falling off.

4.0 out of 5 stars the ultimate bumblebee is not that shiny, 19 July 2007
just bought it yesterday, first, i have to say the packaging is a 'tight pain in the ass', it's wired to the teeth (his fingers) and so hard to get it out of the box!!

other than that, when it came out, it's not fully transformed, the doors are detached and connected by a plastic pipe, and arms are loose, you have to snap it on yourself.

this new line toy created one problem, may not be a real problem at all but seems to be that way, they have too many little pieces and the plastic don't seem to be firm enough, you fear you are constantly breaking it.

have had time to transform it yet, but overall, so far so good.

3.0 out of 5 stars dense, informational, but filled with waffling and tautology, 29 May 2007
this book is very hard to read!!! first impression was thank god there is one in depth, well structured social psy book dedicated to sports and excercise, and the content page looks clean and organised.

then reading on start to get stumbled and confused and self-contradicted and impatient and confused again, lots of words, but little points, just a pile of reserching findings one after another.

the sub-chapters are organised badly, no logical coherence, no ordination, hierarchy, just flat laying out whatever that can stuff words in.

some chapters and within chapter paragraphs are nice and easy and coherent, but all of a sudden you are stung by a deep, technical, abrupted comment of some experiment, of the level readers who enjoy the previous paragraph do not belong. i.e. for advanced readers, most paragraphs are useless, just repetitions, but some are too concise and deep.

emphasis is bad, no emphasis in fact.

could have been a nicely written book, for a introductory to intermdediate readers, but now it's messed up.

if you want a list of reference of relevant research, use this book as a dictionary for them, but don't trap yourself too deep into this book, at the end, you don't know what you have read.

4.0 out of 5 stars agree with previous rater about POOR BASS, 27 Jan. 2007
one thing is a fact here, no one can deny it, which is the distorted sub-bass, im a musician and a sound engineer, very picky at such details. this level of weak and shaky bass is not detail anymore, it feels like a tremor of my heart!!

but, one recommendation to make it perfect, ipods have a special characteristic that it renders sound a lot more perfectly when using crap second class earphones!!!! like some unkown brands, or, philip, jvc etc, don't use shure, i have shure, but bass is still bad, but when i plugged in the discarded philip earphone, the sound is amazing, loud and clear and strong!!

5.0 out of 5 stars absolutely essential, 25 Dec. 2006
this is a good DVD, not to say the series.

season two is getting better, but season one is always necessary.

wonderful interviews for each actor too, well worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars the prototype, 17 Dec. 2006
this is prolly the oldest design of BOSE speakers. it's simple, metal cased, stone cold and hard, but the sound is very good.

very crispy high range and solid base, slightly differnt from the new BOSE speakers or other brands, such as PIONEER or HARMAN KARDON, that the bass is not muffled, softened, it's rock hard to your face.

some people like soft bass, but i like this to your face clarity.

5.0 out of 5 stars to complete season 5, 8 Mar. 2006
season 5 is somehow too short for me, apart from redux-like myth episodes, the lone epis are not that exciting, a bit of filler really. however, when you see this, you are gonna like season 5, the movie maker did a good job in that at a right time, chose the right form, to hit two target with one stone, the backgrounds of two characters are revealed through conversation in the hearing, this is the one of the few ways to acheive this in movies, and it suits perfectly the temporal story line right after the burning of the office, so, for both movie audiences and tv audience, this is a allound job. the only pity is, the movie is too important for the conitnuation of season 7, without seeing the movie, it's hard to feel comfortable in season 7u first epi.

5.0 out of 5 stars nice one to complete the animal concert, 1 Nov. 2005
This review is from: Extended Versions (Audio CD)
this is the rest of the rocknroll animal concert, and the quality is really nice. lou's rendering of wild side and satellite is impressive, it catches a lot of attention when you are playing it loudly in public.
reasonable price, good stuff

5.0 out of 5 stars absolutely amazing, 30 Jun. 2005
This review is from: ANIMAL SERENADE (Audio CD)
amazing! that's all i can say, it's clean--pat attention here, a lot reed fan and the VU fans alike are looking for rough recordings, sound raw and real live, they like to talk about lou's clean recordings unsatisfactory, well, this one might fall into that clean category again. but it's lou! not vu no more!
a concise, mature small lineup, great performance, great sounding is all we need from the mature lou! the rough sound of vu characterised their spirit, we should expect something different from lou!

4.0 out of 5 stars good stuff, but not as good as expected, 30 Jun. 2005
what is it like that I expected it to be? well, I was really expecting soemthing more visual, more colourful, in the sense of lighting and stage design.
the show is full or not, i dont know, as you know, lou reed's dvd or videos are always quite short, they are all creams! that's why.
the performance of jane on venus is extrordinary, just like what she did on the previous album, i mean the animal serenade album.
but, the talking of lou has been cut almost none (or did he talk at all?)
the songs were good, good selection, highlights are blue mask and modern dance, and jesus.
the special features are backstage shots, you can view them on the website instead.
get it, you won't regret.
