"science & features and a great price"4.5 starson by cmendes2001
Pros: price; sound quality; FM radio: aux port; remote; battery
Cons: not compatible with iphone; some weird noises; no equalizer; unable to navigate through ipod controls using remote.
Summary: out of the box looks extremely compact and solid. sound is excelent for the price range although it has the typical "small speaker" effect. the basses were maybe a bit high that's why an equalizer would be a plus. The ESS effect doesn't add much more. The sound can also be quite loud but at the expense of quality, but its more than enough for a medium size room.
FM is a real plus, reception is great and the antenna is cleverly hidden. Clever is also the way the device folds with an extra place for the remote. The remote has all what's needed, but controls for the ipod menu would be nice.
As opposed to other opinions, i think the ipod fits nicely, it's not locked but it won't fall just like that
On the back the only thing that i'm excited about is the aux entry -this way i can connect an iphone or another player-, the other jacks i don't care but i'm sure they can be useful at some point.
Overall, the important things are there: good performance/price; sound quality; FM radio; aux input.
