GREAT SOUND GREAT VALUE
I never know what to expect with apple-compatible devices. Over the years, I've found some that are very good and some that are just a step above useless. So I was pleasantly surprised by this rechargeable speaker system from iHome. Physically the unit is lightweight, yet reassuringly sturdy, meaning it's easy enough to move from place to place but also solid enough to survive constant relocation. The rubberized base eliminates any slipping - when you place it on a flat surface, it's going to stay there. The system has several features which work well and provide flexibility of use. First of all, it's not only a speaker system, but also serves as a recharging port for your iPhone, iPod or iPad when the unit is plugged into an outlet. Then again, the speaker system has its own rechargeable battery, which means it can play your music anywhere, even when an outlet it not close at hand. The universal dock worked well with all of my various i-devices (I have five) and there is also a line-in jack for CD players, MP3 players, or other audio devices. The unit also works with remote control devices, although none is included. As an added feature, this system will operate with the free alarm clock app iHome+Sleep and also with the internet radio app iHome+Radio.
