A worthwhile purchase,
This review is from: Gear4 HouseParty Rise 2 Wireless Speaker Dock with EU/UK Plug Compatible with iPhone 3G/3GS/4/4S, iPad 2/3 and iPod Touch 4th Generation - Black (discontinued by manufacturer) (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I bought this product for my girlfriend for Xmas 2012. Even on first use we both agreed, and were surprised, that the sound quality to be great for such a small unit. Whilst listening to Ipod Mp3 tracks of all sorts of genres of music from Metal, Classical, Blues and Pop, etc we encountered new instrumental sounds within many tracks that we had not previously heard on other devices, so the depth and range of sound from mp3, even at that format it has been extremely good so far. The radio is very easy to use and tune.
Overall it is extremely easy to use with simple controls and its functionality gets top marks from me. The small remote bundled with the device works well. I havent tried to use the SmartLink app as yet with other Apple devices.
So far i have used it successfully to stream tracks from my home PC's music library, (using the Audiogalaxy software) to great effect and with no problems at all.
I appreciate good music and I have numerous music players as i listen to music a lot and I would say that this device has everything required for use in a bedroom or as a handy general stereo anywhere in the house. I have used a few other Ipod/Iphone wireless speakers and this is the best i have ever came across so far for ease of use and sound quality. Simple to use, great sound and not too expensive. I would definitely recommend this product for the money.
