"Nicer than you think"3.5 starson by JimBob88--2008
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.
