If that sounds anywhere near as good as the On Stage does, it should be a big hit.

I hope it sounds a lot better than an i-station 7!

I have been looking for something that is cute and functional and easy for a preteen to carry around. And that fits an iPod 60GB in an eVo3 case. This looks like it.

Be careful if you have a Nano. The Nano adapter doesn't work properly. You can use the one that came with your Nano, but if you have a black On Stage Micro, you might not like the look of the black and white.

The sound quality is definitely not nearly as good as the previous models(On Stage & On Stage II). The volume level is much lower and distortion level is much, much higher at high volume.
It's nice that this model runs on batteries. Although, in my test it lasted only 10 hours at 3/4 of max volume level. BEWARE, it does NOT work with rechargeable batteries. When used with rechargeable batteries there is a constant loud(and I do mean LOUD) humming noise. This is probably because rechargeable AAA batteries are 1.2V.

I love my On Stage Micro which I got for Christmas! It gets exceptionally loud and barely shows any distortion! Five starts from me!

I got this for my 'tweenage daughter, and she loves it. The sound is good and it is even more portable than I thought it would be.

I recently got the On Stage Micro for usage with my iPod mini and like it a lot (mainly for portability and usability reasons, sounds is OK). However I just can't seem to get the Audio Out port working. Does anyone recognize this issue?

I bought this for the office, and it's great! The design is simple elegant and looks great in black. Love the portability and it'll go on the road with me. No issue with the sound at all.

I've just ordered the On Stage II for home.

I have had this On Stage setup for about 6 months and I have replaced the remote battery 3 times. I can literally count on two hands the number of times I use the remote before the battery is dead. Does anyone else have this problem?
