"Amazing product, everything your could possibly want"5.0 starson by j_edg
Pros: Sound Quality
Features (Bluetooth, FM, dedicated app)
Cons: I love the look of the knobs, i just wish i needed to use them more
Summary: There is no better speaker system for the money. I didn't know I needed all the features this provides until I got it, now I dont think i could settle for anything less.
I own an original video iPod and an iPad so the inclusion of Bluetooth was a huge selling point, and it does not dissapoint. The sound quality is simply amazing at this price and at that size. I will also have to disagree with the CNET point that the App isn't worth your time, because it has already been useful for me;
I was listening to radio while sitting away from the system with my iPad and wanted to listen to a song on my iPad. I didnt have the remote next to me so i pulled up the remote App, switched the Source to Bluetooth and pushed the song through the Airplay button on my iPad.
I got mine at my local Target which was nice because i was able to get a feel for the size and build quality in the store. Once I got this home, heard it with my own ears and test drove all of the features I almost felt like a fool for even considering one of the ridiculously priced name brand speaker systems that only offer a dock.
On a design note; i love the way it looks and the door on the side is a simple but thoughtful detail that should not go unnoticed. Also, i dont know if they intended for this (probably not) but i use this on my nightstand and the flat surface on top of the speaker allows things to be placed on top of it. So while the footprint may be bigger than some iPod docks, you really dont lose much surface area.
FInally, i had a question about this product and i sent an email to the support line i got off of their website. A real person emailed me back before the end of the day with the answer and he left the line of communication open in case i had anymore questions. I really appreciated that, and it made the desicion to purchase that much easier. I am so happy with Soundfreaq, and the Soundplatform is a winner in every category I can think of.
