I agree with the previous reviewers.
Why doesn't Sony support its own MP3/4 with a range of docking stations that Sony makes for the iphone? Maybe Sony could just change the connection fitting on its models to be compatible with the iphone & that would open up a whole new world to Sony MP3 users for a whole range of accessories not currently available.
So to the product itself. For the money I have no problem with the good sound reproduction. What I have a problem with is the remote usability. I use a Sony NWZ S544 with this docking station and all the remote will do with my model is On/Off ,Volume and FF or RW. So far so good but when you are finished with an album & want to change it you must take the MP3 out of the flimsy docking station to change the album by hand on the MP3 player. This docking station would be immeasurably better if you could change albums by remote. The other thing which is really annoying to me is that you cannot play the radio through it. Why not, Sony? If Sony fixed these two things I would be rating it with the best but as it stands 3 stars is all I can honestly give.
There has been some discussion as to whether this product is loud enough. It's 10w X 10w RMS and therefore you cannot expect it to be as loud as a quality Hi-Fi but I find it perfect for taking on holiday and is plenty loud enough for the kitchen or a small lounge.
Edit; Since writing this I have found that I can connect my NOKIA phone to this unit via an audio cable. Sound reproduction is still great from my phone's music player and what's more, I can listen to internet radio or local radio too! That makes this unit well worth the money and makes me a very satisfied customer!
