Pros It works great and its a lot cheaper than BOSE's products. I also love the boxy-design
The customer service of the company is superb! I couldn't locate a product at my local Target, and they reserved one for me!(within a day).
Cons You'll only find this at special Targets or at Amazon.
Seems a bit too heavy, and has no internal battery.
Summary Overall great product, exceeding my expectations.
The customer service of SoundFreaq is truly superb, I've had at least 30 emails between customer service and I in the past month.
Pros Cool design, Sound quality (docked), Ease of use, Cost
Cons Noticeable sound quality difference when bluetooth streaming
Summary I have been using this a week now in conjunction with and iPhone4 and Macbook. The design and ease of use is excellent, my only criticism would be the storage door for the remote is a little flimsy.
At low volumes bluetooth streaming is perfectly acceptable, but interestingly the treble can get quite clipped at mid to high volumes. There is a noticeable difference between hardwiring/docking and bluetooth performance (obviously this is a restriction of bluetooth but its just a heads up).
It does work fine with MBP and iPhone for Spotify both wirelessly and iPhone docked. Notably you can control the iPhone/Spotify next and previous track function via the remote so docking for sound quality is not too much of an issue.
Pros A very good sound quality. Works very well with bluetooth- which is, to my opinion, one of its primary adventages. A very nice design, clean and imoressive. Has an AM\FM feature.
Cons The most problematic thing is that I cannot mount my iPhone 3gs (according to the manual it should fit) using the special dock. Only when I remove any dock can the soundfreaq attach to my iphone and play it. Other than that, an additional am\fm antenna ho
Summary I'm very happy with this product, although I would suggest to holdres of iphone 3gs and less to consider what I have written above.
Pros Solid construction
beautifully designed with nice materials
Cons Blue tooth sound not as good as docked sound
Summary This is a surprisingly nice unit. I say surprisingly because I never heard of the company but they've produced a really lovely piece of gear. The materia;s feel first rate and the unit has some heft. My guess it's because they use good speakers.
Aesthetically the controls are nice to use and there are subtle glowing orange accents when it's on. There's been some comment on the dimness of the control; panel but I don't think so. It's refreshing after having to tape over the super bright led's that manufacturers seem to sprinkle on their devices.
The design itself is more elegant in person. Thoroughly modern but evocative of radios of the 50s and 60s. Very subtle.
The sound is good - rich and full. It's better with a docked item (or aux in) but bluetooth is easy to use and can be convenient. Docked it has a warm but not muddy sound. Very nice.
To sum it up - it's nicer than you think - and priced very well. Slap bang olufson on it and the price goes up $300.00.
"Forget about Bose!"on by jlp44
Pros First and foremost the price is unbeatable. I love the design, the bluetooth feature, and of course the sound quality.
Cons I honestly can't think of any downsides.
Summary Just got the Sound Platform and I absolutely love it!! Before buying it I tried out the demo units at the store, and I honestly think this sounds every bit as good (if not better) than the comparable Bose models. And the price is unbelievable. I love old radios (particularly from the 60's and 70's) so the design of it really appeals to me. The look of it totally reminds me of those old radios, but yet it is sleek and modern looking at the same time. Plus the bluetooth feature is a big bonus. In the techie reviews I read the only criticism was that it loses some sound quality at higher volumes...but when I cranked it up I really didn't think there was any loss of sound quality. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND! You just can't do any better for this price range.
