It's okay - not GREAT
on September 25, 2014
It's okay - not great, but doesn't suck either. 600 Watts is really misleading. This thing doesn't really go that loud (not like a dj system or pa speaker system). The software interface and ability to control the unit itself is pretty minimal and even somewhat lame. The other downside is that if you have a newer apple device, the connection on top of this speaker won't work. It connects only to the older ipod style connections (30 pin I believe). The new ipod touch and other devices with the new "lightning" type connections won't work, and if you buy an adapter that goes from 30 pin to lightning, the unit won't control your device.
I wouldn't buy again only because this model is really made for older style 30 pin ipod/iphone, etc. devices. You will get the loudest sounds by using the 30 pin connection on top of the speaker. If you use the aux jack for audio in the back, the max volume is about 30% less than if you use the 30 pin connection on top. If they offer a new speaker with the lightning connection on top, it would allow those with newer apple devices to utilize them. For a college dorm room, or a small apartment, this would probably be a good solution sound. For larger homes or areas to fill with sound, this just doesn't cut it.
