Well, I can see a lot of 'Not Applicable' there, so this could be a record for the shortest 'tech over' I've ever done.

 

So what do we have to work with here? Well, there are two 2.75" drivers, which are side ported with a small opening on either side of the unit.

Power figures come in at a hefty 6 watts x2 which could be peak or RMS, but no-one knows because it's not listed.

 

I have said before that it's not the size of the spanner, it's how agile your wrist is; but not here I'm afraid as these figures just plain suck.

 

So what else does this do? Well, it's an ipod dock which supports just about every ipod as well as the iphone. It also supports FM radio and has dual alarm, snooze and a wireless remote (wireless remote? Come on, it's nearly 2010). Maybe they make 'colour TVs' too.

 

It will also charge your ipod, has a dimmer on the LCD, as well as an AUX for MP3 players and other music devices you may have.

 

Unfortunately there is not a whole lot more to say in terms of audio goodies inside.

So let's take a look at how the setup and installation went.
