mStation 2.1 Stereo Tower Review

 

It's hard to feel luke-warm about the iPod. You either hate it or love it. The hundreds of iPod-centric devices and gadgets which have hit the market in the past several years since the debut of the

Lots of low-end extension ; Beautiful finish and elegant form factor ; Fits almost any style iPod or MP3 player ; Slick control surface ; USB and audio inputs

Distorts at high volume ; Mediocre remote ; Poor stereo imaging

As I've stated to death, this is a fun system. Placement is crucial for keeping the bass in control, but overall this is simply an easy-to-use iPod sound system that will allow most users to dock and play. I could see this stereo system occupying many...

mStation 2.1 Stereo Tower

 

We have taken a look at quite a few iPod speaker systems, but none like the 2.1 Stereo Tower from mStation. It is quite a large system and will definitely catch someone's attention when they walk in the room. It is also one of the most expensive iPod...

Great sound ; Subwoofer really packs a punch ; Sleek design ; Can be used to sync with iTunes ; Included remote

Satellite speakers are very close so there is not much sound separation

There are many iPod speakers systems out there, but the stereo tower is unique. There are only a few other systems that have a tower-type design and mStation has done a great job on the stereo tower. The sleek design will definitely catch the attention...

mStation 2.1 Stereo Orb Review and Prices

 

The mStation 2.1 Stereo Orb is a fun iPod accessory. With its globe-like shape, candy colors and dedicated subwoofer, it's not just a pretty trinket to place on a shelf, but one that produces some pretty respectable sound for the price.

Colorful design, fair basic sound

Muffled sound without bass adjustment

mStation Orb 2.1 Stereo Speaker System for iPod

 

Without a doubt the iPod is the most popular MP3 player out there. If someone you know has an MP3 player most likely it is an iPod. With the popularity of the iPod there are a plethora of accessories made specifically for the iPod. None is more popular...

Stylish look, - Great Sound, - Works with iPhone, - Can be used with other players (via line in)

None!

If you think that all iPod speaker systems are cheap, then think again! The Orb 2.1 stereo speaker system from mStation is definitely not cheap. It has a great sound that makes it worth the $129.95 that mStation is asking for it. Not only that it is...

When I was a young child my family living room was dominated by a large piece of wooden furniture at least 3 1/2 feet high and 6-9 feet long. Inside was the “Hi-Fi” as my parents' referred to it. It consisted of three sections. The first section...

2.1 Stereo Orb

 

If you're a sucker for over-sized Christmas baubles worthy of year-round display, check out mStation's 2.1 Stereo Orb, a whimsical little sound systems that also happens to be perfectly simpatico with the stark white Nintendo Wii.

If you're looking for a bit more beefcake from your television and/or gaming audio, mStation has a couple of self-contained 2.1 stereo systems ready to flesh out the kabooms and clangs left wanting when emanating from just TV speakers. The mStation 2.1...

Review: mStation 2.1 Stereo Tower

 

Free-standing modern robust sound system for your iPod or computer.

Outstanding audio quality. Attractive modern design. Excellent build quality. Excellent value. Very small footprint

The price may intimidate some, but I think that $300 is an excellent value for the system, due to the pros mentioned above

mStation is not a household word in stereo sound, but this is my second great experience with one of their products. One word describes their stereo product line: Excellent. The gray and black aluminum mStation 2.1 Stereo Tower is almost all me
