Good quality easy to use


I recieved a sony docking station from my wife for my xmas but it didn't have a cd player in it. I took it back and exchanged it for the Phillips. I knew it was a excellent docking station as my son received the same one for his xmas last year.

great sound


Got this for my daughter for xmas and was very impressed withits sound quality. Only issue I can see with its design would be to remove CD easily yo need to reomve your Ipod from the docking station, but its no big problem. Overall, well worth it.
