I'm sorry, but this peoduct is awful. Horrible mains and iPod HD noises when using the mains adaptor; weedy sound; nasty vibrating bass speaker just adds distorted tuneless thump. Cheap and nasty. Poor value because value is more than a low price (£45 in UK). C- at best. Try the i-station 8 - excellent, great sound for the price, deserving of an A grade.

I used to have the i-Station 6 and loved it. However, this went faulty after 10 months. Returned to the shop and replaced with an i-Station 7. Very disappointed. As the other comment mentions mains and HD noises when using on the mains. OK on battery and Logic3 support have been very good sending me a replacement adapter. However, this and a whole replacement iStation 7 made no difference. Tried other iPods too. I guess its just a design fault.

Now trying to get my money back. Such a shame as the iStation 6 was great.

I tried and tried to convince myself that this sounded good, or even acceptable. Alas, the sound was ridiculously muddy, no matter what I did. I set the nano's EQ on treble boost, and I pressed the "3D" button on the unit. Still as muddy and muffled as could be. Besides that, there was a terrible sound between tracks that reminded me of a CD player searching for the next track. Amazingly, I never hear this sound when using the nano with headphones. I am returning this and moving up another price point when searching for my next small speaker set.
