KICKER ZK500

 

Taking care of the underserved Zune market is the sensational sounding KICKER ZK500.

The car audio masters at KICKER have stepped into the underserved Zune market with a docking station/sound system that plays best loudly. The space-age KICKER ZK500 has outputs for music and video, as well as a remote control.

Kicker has impressed me over the years with their line of audio equipment, but I'm concerned that a problem exists when the Zune is docked with the ZK500. I can only base this opinion on the reviews that I have been reading from other owners of this...

Incredible sound. Thought it was worth every penny when first mated to the Zune. Fills the room with clean and powerful sound at all volume levels. Happy to finally have a docking station that enhanced my satisfaction with the Zune

After about 1 hour of use, the music suddenly stopped. The Zune had froze, and the remote and Zune buttons were useless. After about a minute, the Zune powered down and back on, but I all of my music, pictures and videos were gone

I like the sound and the price I paid. I just don't like the fact that it cause me to loose all info on my Zune player. Be warned!

Good sound and good design

It will totally erase all of your stored information from the Zune. I have had this happen to me on two occasions. While listening to the music it all of suddens stops playing...when you remove the Zune from the dock it reads "No Contents

I would buy it again in a heart beat. I have read down sides that it does not have a clock and can not be battery powered and it will not start my car but it does rock my house and that what I bought it for.

Great sound, full control remote. It's everything I wanted

It could have a built in antenna to plug into the Zune for it's FM radio. Other than that I have no complants

Go with the iHome product, at least you get your money's worth, along with more features such as an alarm clock. Not to mention the Kicker unit looks terrible, who the heck designed that thing, it's an eye soar for the home.

Nothing worth mentioning

Sound quality was miserable. It has that horrible vibrating sound once it passes just half way through the volume settings, as if the speakers were blown. Very hollow sounding, no warmth to it.M akes my Zune sound like a budget Tiawanese knock off
