Boston Acoustics Duo-i plus


The Boston Acoustics Duo-i Plus iPod dock has some great alarm clock features, but it can't deliver distortion-free audio at high volumes.

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.

Audio Performance and Conclusions I was pleased with the audio performance of the Duo-i plus at moderate levels—the speakers handle most of the frequency range with grace and clarity, delivering crisp-but-never-too-bright output. The bass frequencies...

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...

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....

Consumer review (



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 will...

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.
