Boston Acoustics Duo-i plus

 

The $249.99 (list), Duo-i plus by Boston Acoustics is armed with some strong features including a very cool Snooze-button implementation that lets you tap the trim on the unit's speakers to get a little more shut-eye, for example. But this iPod/iPhone...

Works with iPhones and iPods. AM/FM tuner with plenty of presets. Video output. Excellent alarm clock functions with an inventive snooze-button implementation. Display automatically adjusts to room light

Bass distorts at high volumes. Remote lacks full iPod navigation

The Duo-i plus iPod dock offers quality sound at moderate levels and some very cool alarm clock features. But for $250 you should really get more-powerful audio output and a remote control that does more.

Best table radio

 

Critics and owners give the Boston Acoustics Duo-i plus a thumbs-up for its great sound quality and great features. There's no CD player, but you will find a full-featured iPod dock with support for most (fourth generation and newer) iPods and...

Excellent sound quality, easy to use, intuitive interface, great reception, nice touch-sensitive snooze bar, iPod dock

Large size, alarm not as versatile as on some table clock radios, some user reports of low-pitched buzzing when charging an iPod

Duo-i Review

 

The Duo-i's cracking sound quality, cool design and fun touch-sensitive features make is a iPod docking winner.

Great sound, touch-sensitive snooze, simple interface, good looks, well built

Can't control the iPod's menus on the remote

Not only is the Duo-i one of the finest small-ish iPod speaker sets we've seen - it's also one of the most versatile. With its stonking sound quality, easy-to-use alarm clock functions, and video out socket, it's perfect for the bedroom or kitchen....

The sound is rich and full. Design is attractive and features are intuitive. Zero distortion at max volume. Remote gives access to most, if not all of the product's features

The mode dial control is a little sensitive when switching between modes

I have purchased several units to find the perfect balance between sound quality, product design and features. I've purchased the Vers 1.5 rx, the Alec Lansing units and others. The Boston Acoustic unit is quite impressive. Looking forward to years of...

Boston Acoustics Duo-i plus

 

One bad experience could be an anomaly, but I've now owned THREE of their clocks and experienced the loss of time on every single one of them. A great sounding clock radio that can't keep time is about as useful as a GPS that plays MP3's but has maps...

For the money, the audio can't be beat

I've owned three clocks now and every one of them loses time. It might be as annoying as a few minutes a month, but this morning my bedroom clock lost 45 minutes and I was almost late for work

Radio Nirvana!

 

I was searching for an I-Pod docking clock radio that was easy to operate and had good sound. I was told this radio was as good as Bose at half the price. AND IT IS TRUE! Excellent sound, easy to setup and only 3 buttons on the front of the radio....

Very nice clock radio

 

Clear display and full featured with pretty good sound. Alarm is a bit complex to set.

Great Sound, Solidly built

Hard to set alarm, Slight chemical smell

More reliable than previously owned(replaced under warrany)BA Duo., but sound is clearly not as good. They must have made changes to the speakers because sound is now just very average/bland. Next time I'm in the market for a high-end table radio I...

Product Specifications

The unique shape of Duo-i plus is one key to its exceptional performance. Left and right full-range speakers are isolated from each other in separate acoustic chambers for rich, distinct stereo sound. Another key is proprietary BassTrac audio processing for clean bass at all listening levels. The two technologies work together to deliver stunningly realistic reproduction of your favorite music - in any genre, anywhere. First and foremost, Boston is an engineering company, and every Boston system is optimized to meet the highest performance standards. Of course, performance is only one measure of value. So Boston Acoustics is careful to build all the products with strict attention to everything from the choice of materials to the details of fit and finish. It's how Boston Acoustics has been exceeding the expectations of serious listeners for nearly thirty years.
