Polk Audio I-Sonic

 

I was smitten with Polk's I-Sonic tabletop system when I first laid eyes (but no hands-this was a prototype) on it at a Polk press conference. The strong fixation, no doubt, grew out of my need to replace an aging Bose Wave radio that had served me...

Polk Audio I-Sonic

 

Polk Audio apparently set out to create the Swiss Army knife of tabletop radio's when it designed its new I-Sonic. In addition to standard tabletop radio fare-AM, FM, CD, of course, an alarm clock-the I-Sonic is the first to spin DVDs, meaning it can...

So is more better? If you want all the sources that the I-Sonic offers-and are willing to pay extra for them-the answer is yes. And if it means getting all this technology into a small box that can sit on a nightstand, the answer is most definitely yes

Very, very good sound

 

Depending on what you will be using it for, this thing is well worth picking up. The sound is awesome for such a small unit.

The biggest pro is, this thing sounds great. It will easily fill up a room with very presentable sound. Sound through the dock is good, radio reception is not bad, and at least on mine, the AUX is not noisy at all. I run my TV through it and use it as...

Antiquated 30 pin connector and lack of bluetooth. I still have a 30 pin iPod I can use it with, but it won't work on my iPhone

Great Sound

 

I would buy it again, as this is the first newer alarm clock that did not break shortly after the warranty expires. [ Other then a super old one that lasted me over 20+ years]

Very good sound for the size, the sound can be nicely adjusted to your listening preferences. Reliable

Rebate is a joke, never received it - I will NEVER EVER buy any product in my life that has a rebate attached to it, too many of these sale promos do not work ; Three thing that can use improvements on the product ; 1/The display is way too bright at...

GREAT DEAL

 

Maybe include an adapter for the iPhone 5.

This unit is great, it actually make excellent low end bass. I got this for my wife for an alarm clock on her side of the bed and it is an excellent alarm clock. Before I purchased this unit we had a Sony alarm clock, it was the best one I could find...

Compare to Bose

 

My friend has the Bose comparable and she paid way too much. We both compared them and, if you take the price out, it's a wash. Bose does have a CD player, but I rarely would use it.

Great Bass with a room filling sound, as good as Bose. Feature packed, but not cluttered Remote. Price/Value was outstanding. Lots of station presets.

Cannot select preset stations directly. Doesn't come with Apple Lightning Adapter, uses old 30 Pin iPod Connector. No CD Player.
