This was bought to complement my sons iPod touch.
This is perfect for a child's bedroom (it's purpose for us) and as something to listen too in any room. It struggles to retain quality of sound at higher volume but remains reasonable.
It is nowhere near audiophile quality but at the price, does sound decent. The bass is evident and with no additional EQ settings is tight enough without being thin. The mid and trebles are presented well but there is some 'esssing' at higher volumes.
Physically, it is compact, and pleasant to look at. The oldie worldie led display though the speaker gauze is a nice touch.
Some cons - but not dealbreakers
The dock area fits all ipods but the included docking holder doesn't include for a 4th Gen iPod touch. The ipod touch holder. We have ended up using it without the holder otherwise it doesn't charge.
The EQ settings are not subtle and actually a waste of time.
When you connect the Touch, it starts playing the music immediately - which isn't brilliant if the owner shares a room with his little brother!
The remote is a little slow in response - but I may be being a little picky here.
Overall, I would recommend it but not at the full price (hence 4 stars). At full price or a little more, you can get better docks that have a much better sonic performance.
