The JVC Kaboom is better than it needs to be. It is better than anything else out there, by leaps and bounds. I needed great sound and the mic/guitar inputs for practice in a music group I am in. This was perfect for my needs, but I would have bought even if I did not need the special inputs, just for the sound.Sound is perfect. Overall design is outstanding. Operating doors, connection ports, dials, carrying strap, lights, displays, are all top notch quality and functionality. Base is outstanding. I made a video of papers on my desk waving around in place as the air from the woofers pushed them around. I use it with an ipod in the compartment, and an iphone connected via aux input. We practice with the ipod sound, them play back a quick recording using the iphone.Single Con: Only one. The Ipod compartment is super well protected and high quality. However there is no designed support for the Ipod unit. This is not acceptable to me that my $300 phone could get damaged at the base, or fall off the base and flop around, if someone were to bump the unit, or when carrying it. I easily and imediately fixed this with self-adhesive foam from home depot. I used (2 pieces of 1/2inch foam x 3inches long) and (1 piece of 1inch foam x 3inches long). The first 1/2inch piece goes behind the ipod, at the top. Then I stacked 1.5inches of foam on the inside of the clear glass door. So when I close the door, the ipod is perfectly held in place (sandwiched)and will never move. The foam strips are narrow enough so that I still can enjoy seeing the display of the device through the glass door. I would recommend this to anyone using the Kaboom. The foam installation can be modified to work with any size Ipod or Iphone device. I also noticed, the glass panel is easily removed by design, incase someone wants to access the ipod/iphone touch screen without opening the door. But so far, the controlls on the Kaboom unit work ver well for me.
Much Too Large And Heavy!
from Charleston, SC
This boombox is very large and heavy, which is the reason that I returned it. Although it did have a pretty good sound. It can be a really nice boombox for a person that don't mind the size.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Wow! Amazing sound, all in one boombox!
About Me Gearhead
After researching 100's of these, the JVC turned out to be the best bang for my buck. Terrific sound for a portable unit. I wanted the iphone dock, CD player, Mp3 and great sounding speakers. This thing sounds amazing!! The iphone/ipod docking is large enough to accomodate your case as well.The Kaboom has it all! The only negatives which don't bother me, is that it is heavier and doesn't have AM radio. It's still very portable with its quality nylon strap. Very well made, mega bass if you want it. Should stand up to use very well. You will not regret buying this.
Very successful gamble.

Great Item to buy hands down. Its too big to be carrying it around all over the place so it is best used as a stationary steroe system for loud music with good bass
