This iPod dock is awesome and quite accurate in its sound quality. Certainly more than any other iPod dock I've listen to.
As a live sound technician (Pro) and recording engineer (Hobbyist), for over 20 years its very important for the monitors to accurately reproduce the true sound of the recordings.
I have no problem including this product to record, mix, and master away from my home studio, as it is very close to the sound of my 20 year old Audix Broadcast Monitors and Sony MDR-V700 headphones.
Monster, Bose, Samsung, although pleasant sounding are not accurate and cannot be used for critical listening while working on a recording.
One of the things I like about this dock is how the sound just starts to distort at full volume. This means that if I adjust the frequencies and instruments just below the point of distortion at full volume there is a degree of confidence that the recordings will sound proper on all other sound systems. This is not at all easy to do even on the best equipment. If your speakers are too bright the recording will sound dull. Too much bass and the results will be thin....
This product will not replace my studio monitors but they do sound similar and will allow me to work remotely without spending many times more money for basically the same sound.
Like other popular reference monitors, it just happens to have the proper sound even though it wasn't designed for it specifically. If there are other audiophiles or recording engineers do yourself a favour and demo one you'll probably feel the same way about this dock.
