Brilliant iPhone and iPod dock and sound system


Rating: ★★★★★

I looked at quite a few sound and docking systems before choosing this one by JBL. I wanted to get away from having the conventional ‘micro hi-fi’ look with speakers and wires everywhere.

However, I didn’t want to compromise on the quality of sound. This unit ticked all of the boxes for me. It is self-contained, and its unusual shape looks like a piece of modern furniture. Providing there’s a mains socket, its portability allows operation anywhere in the house, or even for your BBQ!

Got an iPod/iPhone? Just dock it and use the remote controller to scroll through all of your menus. (Unfortunately, you can’t use the remote to control non apple devices). If you’re not part of the Apple set, you can still connect a PC or a non-apple mobile phone provided you have a 3.5mm jack on your device.

There are two versions – one is the ‘Micro’ and is slightly cheaper but go for the larger and better Radial version. Over all, the sound quality is impressive and particularly the base response.


  • Sound quality
  • Portability
  • Ease of use.
  • Remote control


  • Can't use remote controller other than with iPod/iPhone


Ticked almost all boxes for me! Quality is better that some other units that cost £50-100 more! You gotta go some to beat the quality, looks, price and versatility of this piece of kit!
