Pros The Sound quality is fantastic, when playing a variety of different pieces of music (Classical to Rock etc) what is apparent is how good the dynamic range is. Great low range but crisp clear highs great separation too
Cons If The video out would allow you to display the your music on screen so you can use the TV to navigate
Summary One thing that is apparent is that the Sounddock 10 is a bit bigger than other Bose Sounddock's, this is because Performance was the focus of this model. When playing classical music (Johann Strauss On the Beautiful Blue Danube)I noticed the range of the product to be great, from the low range of the drums to the clarity of the wood and string sections, and the higher range of the percussion section, all where very clear and well seperated. Then a bit of Rock (Kings of Leon) then some metal music (Metallica) and finally a bit of country (Rosanne Cash). For all these genres the Sounddock 10 handled all with out a problem, it sounded just amazing! With regard to some issues that have been mentioned in other reviews, such as lack of clock and alarm etc, these features are all on your ipod. If you loose the remote control the Sounddock 10's set up allows you to use the Volume control and navigation on the Ipod itself. In the case of the Ipod Touch you will see the volume controls disappear momentarily, and then re-appear. With Classic Models and Nano Models, use the click wheel. When using the Bluetooth Adapter I found it to work flawlessly with My Sony Ericsson Mobile Phone, and with the Bluetooth feature on my Ipod touch. For me I noticed no difference in the sound quality, it was just great. I got a longer range from my mobile phone than my ipod touch. Remember the Bluetooth Adapter is a receiver therefore the range you get is more dependant on the transmitting range of the Bluetooth device you are pairing with it. Yes compared to other products it costs a bit more (In the UK the price is 699GBP with the Bluetooth Adapter included)However for me I feel it is worth every penny. I always have it on when I can, I love my music, and for me its just great, five stars! If I could change one thing it would be for the Video Output to display my music tracks so I could navigate my Ipod using my Television.
Pros I like the sound and especially the focus on more bass from such a small speaker. The remote is simple like all wave systems and great reception.
Cons Obviously price is a little high. The bluetooth adapter needs some work. Sometimes the signal drops and the audio quality suffers.
Summary In all - awesome speaker for iPods and iPhones. I have owned this for one week and have been using it daily. No regrets on this purchase!
Pros - Best sound a speaker this size can offer (or bigger speakers for that matter)
- Immerses yourself with rich , room filling, lifelike sound.
- Video Out.
- Waveguide Technology +7"= good bass.
I own several bose products, this is by far my favorite.
Cons -Expensive... but later on it pays itself.
-The video out is only 480p.
Summary In my opinion the Bose SoundDock 10 is slightly better than the Acoustic Wave II , significantly better than the Wave II and a lot better than the other SoundDocks. It sounds REALLY good. Btw, I don't work for Bose, I just discovered them 2 years ago and they are awesome. But this is definitely better than all their other stereo speakers.
Pros Great Bass. Excellent sound from twiddler. This is now one of the ultimate sound system I own.
Cons Nothing bad. Only a little bit heavy (8.4 Kg). But it's because of the woofer so it is considerable.
Summary I own 4 sound systems of Bose. Including this Bose SoundDock 10. Among all high range ipod dock this system gives best sound output. Specially the powerful woofer gives a complete theatre effect. Can easily be used as a primary sound system at home. B&W Zeppelin is the only strong competitor but still its cannot give an output of 150 Watts.
Pros 1. One Piece System; 2 wires at the most with Auxiliary out
2. Believe it or not this thing sounds like a home theater system
3. As usual with most Bose system, You can play as loud as you like with no Distortion.
4.Small in size, footprint but big sound
2.Costly. Should Packed together with Bluetooth
3.Poor bass if placed wrongly (Popular issue.I'll explain later)
4. Cannot be placed at desktop level. Must be on the Floor or with a low height table probably at knee or thigh height level. Probably
Summary Many people have trouble getting their SD 10 to work. Some say "wow impressive bass! sounds like a theater" Some doesn't get to experience that kinda claim at home and suspect those reviewers may be working in Bose. Bose Wave guide was over-hyped Blah Blah Blah .
While most people experiencing inadequate bass or virtually none at all- *is true*. The problem here is the Design of the SD 10. For some poor design reason, the bass sound was projected in a
up-firing way somehow. So if you may have placed on your desktop and find that the bass isn't working, you may have to place it somewhere on a lower.
Imagine this. Most of us may probably own a 3 piece system and we wouldn't want to place our subwoofer on our desktop. We probably put it on the floor near a corner of the wall to get the maximum potential. Unfortunately SD10 works somewhat that way. You have to treat this thing like a subwoofer. Try it on the floor near a wall. You won't believe that was your disappointing SD 10 you brought earlier on. I do agree that this thing doesn't look good when place on the floor or feels good by not being visible. But the sound quality compensate it all If place correctly.
Sigh* I can only say this thing should be 5 stars. But due to placement limitation and the cost of this poor sound design I gave it 3.5 stars.
