Consumer review by: Kenda W. (newegg.com)

Maybe it was a lemon...

 

Good sound while it lasted. Love the look. Friendly customer service.

One thing after another stopped working. First it was the iPod dock (within 6 months). I called Boston Acoustics customer service, they were very nice and invited me to return it. Since I had a separate dock anyway, I decided to keep it. After less...

Top Notch

 

I can turn it up high enough to hear it over the shower noise... love that part. It's so impressive, my wife is planning to purchase one, too... and she doesn't have an iPod either.

Let's see... I didn't want the iPod dock. I didn't want the remote control, and I could actually have done without the clock. However, for the Newegg price, I just couldn't justify buying a Horizon Solo for the same money from another vendor. The sound...

My main purpose in buying this radio was to get a decent sounding radio with station presets to replace an old clock radio in my bathroom that had no presets. Biggest con for me would be paying almost $100 for a bathroom radio, but since this one sells...

Awesome!!!!

 

I did a lot of research on players and this is by for the BEST value out there. Boston Acoustics know how to create great sound. The quality is astounding. I recommend it to anybody. Very easy to setup as well.

* Great sound * iPod integration * Make and look/feel * Bass * Radio quality * Apple adapters for different players

* Remote has to be pointed directly at the player * No way to move around the ipod playlists while playing * When you turn off the player via the remote it doesn't turn off the iPod - it pauses it and iPod turns off after some time

Excelent Value...

 

For $100, a great deal. But sound quality compromised due to emphasis on boomy bass. I have treble at +5, bass at -1! Ipod dock wasted on me. Why hook up music player to this?

Attractive design ; Sensitive tuner even with supplied antenna ; Remote control ; Many features and well constructed. Heavy ; Plays loud and clean

Display too small (problem if near sighted!) ; Mid-bass emphasized (This is a huge minus!)

Exactly as advertised

 

Overall, a solid, well-designed, and very well built piece of gear. Newegg site design, price, and shipping is all first rate. What a relief to have things done this well.

Great tuner! Why can't all tuners grab stations like this? Easy to use, intuitive controls. Simple layout. Precise volume control with a great range. Nice choice of inputs. And, of course, solid sound--not audiophile quality, but among the top tier for...

Dock is a little awkward to use

Great Value

 

For $100, it is worth it! It is well made with tons of features. Wish it included HD radio. Ipod dock doesn't interest me either. Receives stations well with included antenna wire. Nice looking and well made. Weighs a lot! Even has remote. Only...

Great Value ; Attractive ; Nice Tuner ; Heavy Duty Construction ; Many Features (i.e. remote, dual alarms etc.)

Controls Not Very Intuitive ; Mid-Bass Emphasized ; Clock Display Too Small

Nice

 

It's not intended to play to a very large room, but sounds great in the dining room.

Excellent price for a very good unit. Works well with my Itouch gen2 (A1288) 8gb ; Newegg peace of mind

The controls take some "discovery" but it's all there

Boston Duo

 

I think you will have a hard time finding a better sounding or constructed stereo for $99.

Simple to set up and use. Solid, heavy unit that stays put. Sounds very good for this class of stereo. (ie: not McIntosh seperates!) Remote is comprehensive, convenient and magnetic. I bought 2, one for my office and the other to replace my 22 year old...

Not really a con, but it doesn't compare to my dedicated 2 channel 375 wpc Carver/Vandersteen stereo system in my home theater. :)

Boston Acoustics Horizon Duo AM/FM Stereo Radio w/ iPod Dock (Midnight)

 

I think newegg should tell buyers that the ipod dock does not work with the ipod touch 3rd generation.

Good sound quality for the price. Well built. Easy to operate

The ipod dock that comes with unit does not work with my ipod touch 3rd generation. I bought this unit primarily for the purpose of playing the music on my ipod. Since this doesn't work, I basically bought a good radio, which is not what I intended to do

Awesome Unit!

 

One of my favorite products ever!

I just replace the $1200 Bose Wave with unit! This Boston unit sounds every bit as good!! And it's a fraction of the price! (with my present order I'll now have 3 of these!)

None that I can see or hear! Contrary to what other folks have said, the radio tuner is great
