Worth every penny – USB Charging Docking Station Music Stereo Speaker for iPad/ iPhone 3G/4 Reviews

posted by epx141 on 03/28/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Good build quality (aluminum case)
Good sound quality
Input is analog 3.5mm, compatible with virtually any audio source
Can be fed with any USB source (computer, car adapter, wall adapter, auxiliary battery)
Uses little power
Volume control in a discrete place (behind one of the speakers)
Can play quite loud, even outdoors. Won't make neighbours to call the police but they you will definitively know which kind of music you like :)
Cons:
Analog 3.5mm jack is a source of bad contact, if you are using it attached permanently to a computer, try the silver version which is connected by a USB plug only (and emulates a sound card)
For some reason, Macs "see" the jack as digital sometimes, and try to send digital audio via optical S/PDIF instead of analog. Perhaps impedance is too high? Plugging a headphone and then these speakers is a workaround.
Other:
Bottomline:
Worth every penny.
