Kitsound Boom Dock review
:Excellent sound quality and price is right. Feels expensive.
:No DAB or Bluetooth connectivity
If you were looking for an iPod/iPhone dock that will deliver good sound quality as well as have a good build quality you might be looking at £200 or more to get a bargain, and I never thought I could pick one up for less than £100 pound and not have to compromise on sound [...]
If you were looking for an iPod/iPhone dock that will deliver good sound quality as well as have a good build quality you might be looking at £200 or more to get a bargain, and I never thought I could pick one up for less than £100 pound and not have to compromise on sound and build quality.
The Kitsound Boom Dock was one that I was skeptical about at first after looking at the price, but having tried it out, I can give you my verdict; first thing is to show you what you get inside the box and a first look at the product design.
Unboxing and Review Video
Inside the box you get a remote control with batteries included, your dock port holder, AM/FM antenna, auxiliary cable.
Around the box, it has a nice, slick simplistic design to it with the few buttons to press and the volume control knob giving it a nice modern homely look should you wish to place it on your living room cabinet. The front has two satellite drivers and underneath is the down-firing subwoofer to give you the best base as possible. Underneath you also get four studs to keep it sturdy and help reduce any vibration from the base.
On the front you get your Tune + and – buttons, Input, volume control knob, alarm button and the power button and behind you will find a metal plate placed to help produce the best amplification; you have your AM/FM antenna port and a left and right audio port for your cinema system or games console. You can use the remote control to control the treble and bass to suit your hearing needs.
Sound quality and performance
With the option to connect just about any audio source to the Boom Dock, it is inevitably a sound system that serves its purpose and for less than £100 you are having nothing but a bargain. The bass sounded right with no crackling, vibrations even at high volumes and no distortion at all. The Kitsound Boom Dock is highly suitable for parties or even for general relaxation time. The only downside to the device is the lack of DAB radio functionality but you can download Tunein Radio app for your iOS or Android device and listen to all the available digital channels from there. What we also liked is how it charges your iPhone or iPod while its docked.
