I was looking for a compact dock to meet several expectations. Delivering rich, full sound at home that I could also take with me for the same sound quality out and about. This speaker meets both those needs–and impresses my friends with its compact design.

First, the speakers are fantastic!! I read a review for another product on another page, and the customer wanted good speakers to play music for her physical therapy patients. The product she bought didn't cut it whereas these speakers can be heard throughout many rooms. So, I hope she will find this product because the speakers and portability are wonderful.

The downside is that I bought this for an iPad, and it is definitely not designed for it. With an iPad, you have to pick up the boombox, look closely and try to line up the docking station with the iPad and then force it in and hope you get it on the first or second time. Ever since buying this product, I have had trouble getting my iPad to charge with its own wall charger, and I'm wondering if an inner prong got slightly misaligned from trying to get it on the boombox.

Once the iPad is in, it is not stable for walking around with it or moving it because there is no foundation for the iPad to rest. It is simply in mid-air attached only by the charger. If you're primarily going to keep it in one place, this is fine.

The upside is how wonderful this product would be for an iPod. An iPod slides easily right onto the charger and is small enough to not worry about it falling off if you move around with it.

Also, there's a button you push to open the little door that hides the docking station. After just a handful of uses and only a couple of weeks of having this product, the little door will no longer open. So, I have to return this product for this reason. I'm sure this is just a fluke.

The bottom line: 1) This product was designed for an iPod, not an iPad. 2) The speakers are fantastic. 3) The radio is a wonderful addition. 4) Hopefully the next generation of this product will have a better design for an iPad. I will wait until then to try it out again.

Thanks.

    Comments about Boombox for iPad Tablet:

    We enjoyed this player with both our IPhones and IPad because we could stream radio while they charged. When we upgraded our devices, we couldn't do this anymore. Now we just have a very mediocre radio with a poor antenna. We went to the store to see what might be wrong and the clerk asked if we'd upgraded our devices and when we said yes, she said "oh, well, that's probably it, sorry." Information on the boxes in the store suggested this might be true. Perhaps the boombox has been upgraded in later releases.

          I use this to play music from my applications when I'm cooking or gardening. It was fantastic until I discovered how delicate it is as the connection with the ipad is not too sturdy and the ipad can fall! It almost did, and while trying to save the ipad, it damaged the entry of the connector. I had to go exchange it because it wasn't connecting well. The FM radio barely gives good reception... Other than. Those two things, it's a cool item!

            This speaker is great! I use it for my ipod classic, and the sound is very clear and full. The entire unit is very light, so it's easy to carry and place anywhere you want. The adjustable dock however is made in such a way that you need to place the whole speaker on a level surface. The volume can also get pretty loud. The radio works fine too. And the remote makes this speaker even easier to use! If you want to use this speaker with an ipod classic like me, you need to know something first. It ONLY charges the 7th generation model due to software restrictions. I found this out with my old 5th generation ipod classic; it still played great, but I couldn't charge it or use the remote with it. Luckily, I was planning on getting my 7th generation ipod classic, and now I have it and it charges just like the owner's manual promised.
