"Poor Interface"on by mzx5zg
Pros Ease of Use
Cons Interface Issues
Summary Constantly getting message "out of range". I am ready to return it this week to BestBuy. After repeated resetting, it still shows "out of range" yet the product mfg claims it can go 150ft and I am only 5 ft from the Ipod in the living room. When it does work, the remote goes through walls so nice to be in the bedroom and able to adjust the volume. For now, I will just use my Bose docking station in the bedroom. This product shouldn't be more than $100!
"don't buy it"on by rcstudio
Pros don't buy it, it only holds the first 50 playlists or artists from your ipod
Cons don't buy it, it only holds the first 50 playlists or artists from your ipod
Pros It is a great concept and the 10% of the time that it works without problems it is very convenient.
Cons In my experience it basically never worked for any consistent period of time without having to be reset.
Summary It constantly has to be re-set to even function without it crashing. It drops out in the middle of playing songs. I returned mine after the first couple weeks thinking I just had a defective until but the new one did the exact same thing. I kept it for almost a year constantly hoping that I would be able to figure out the problem (I had hope) but now the battery in the remote hand-held unit died and there is no way to replace it - so that is the last straw - I disconnected it today.
It is a shame that this just doesn't work - but do not waste your money on this product it has way too many technical problems and the technical support people are in denial. It needs to be recalled and completely re-worked.
Pros Nice design, but don't bother buying it, it doesn't work
Cons Too bad it doesn't work, horrible audio quality
Summary If you want to listen to distorted music then buy this product, otherwise stay far away from it. I bought several after getting a bad one, as I liked the concept, packaging, and functionality. Had to return every one back to the stores, as they all had completely distorted audio properties, completely un-useable !!! If you want wireless iPod functionality, check out the Keyspan TVI-200C, it's a few dollars more expensive, but it actually works and sounds great. DLO has poor technical service, gives incorrect information, and does not own up to the fact that this product has serious manufacturing problems. Bad company, stay away from them
"Not worth the $$"on by RC_NY
Pros Remote with a menu interface is a good idea...
Cons The remote barely works and the sound quality is atrocious without major time spent fiddling with sound settings.
Summary There has to be a better way then this. The remote idea is a good one, but the unit is realized so cheaply that it is almost unusable.
a. The connection between the remote and the dock drops out for what appears to be no reason at random intervals even at close range.
b. The menu is not really intuitive as the volume up/down key doubles as the up down navigation in the menus. You wind up turning up the volume when you want to switch tracks.
c. The RCA cable included in the box is the cheapest piece of lossy junk I have ever seen...but even when I used a quality cable by Monster the sound quality was horrible.
While I dont expect audiophile quality from a MP3 player/stereo connection...this was completely unacceptable. Distorted is the best way I can term the output...and I needed to turn the bass way down and the treble way up in order to make it sound even passable.
Too much work when all you want is to drop the IPod in and play it...
Look for something better, mine went right back to the store.
