One of the best speakers ever.Jan 12, 2011
I have the D200. It was not bought from Amazon, so the review is about the speaker and not about the service from Amazon.
This is one amazing speaker.
1. A+++ for sound. The sound quality is so crisp and clear at all the ranges. Whether you play a movie soundtrack CD or a classical or jazz CD, it reproduces every nuance of the high, mid, and low frequencies without any audible distortions.
2. A++ for looks. It is aesthetically very pleasing to look at. Simple curves on the two ends and the mirror like finish (black) of the body gives it a very elegant look that sets it apart. The buttons on top blends in without protruding or standing out. The led light isn't too bright as to attract attention to it. The matte black front screen has only a small logo of the company. It will blend well with any decor in your house, whether you live in an upscale penthouse or an ordinary bedroom or living room. For me its looks alone won me over.
3. A++ for convenience. The size is not too small or not too big. It is just right. Connections are minimal. Since it lies on its side rather than standing upright like some bookshelf or computer speakers, it is very stable and easy to place anywhere. No need to worry about whether it will tip over or whether it will be too tall. If you can find a place with 16 inch length, 4 inch height and 4 inch depth (plus a little bit extra space in the back for the dispersion of the bass sound) then the speaker will have a comfortable home.
4. A++ for adaptability. I have used its aux. input by connecting it directly to my laptop headphone jack. There is no problem with the range of volume controls and it performs superbly. I now use it with blue tooth and I get the same nice range of volume control without any fuss. The speaker will work great regardless of whether you are streaming your music from your laptop or from your iphone, ipad or ipod or any blue tooth enabled device. You make the one-one blue tooth transmitter-receiver matching and you are set. It doesn't get any simpler than that.
5. A++ for packaging. In terms of the overall packaging I am very satisfied since it comes in a nice cardboard box more like a wine bottle box and with a little handle like a boombox. There is no Styrofoam or clam-shell to deal with. If you are buying it for yourself, it is easy to open and setup, one power cord, one power socket you attach to the power cord and the speaker, that's all. If you want to give it as a gift it is easy to gift wrap. The size and looks of the package will be appreciated by both men and women alike. So it makes a perfect gift item.
You will be wondering why so much praise and why I haven't written anything negative about the speakers. Well I want to concentrate on the product as it is meant to be used. I can write something negative about the instruction booklet. But how many people really need instructions. I just set it up without reading any instructions. Moreover it wont do justice to the speaker if the review nitpicks on the instructions. After all we want to listen to the music and not sit down to read the instruction booklet.
I see in the reviews that some people have problems after the first day. My gut feeling tells me that they would not have realized that some blue tooth transmitters that attach to the headphone jack of their computers need recharging using external power supplies. So they could have easily fixed that problem by recharging their blue tooth transmitter, instead of returning the speaker after using it for a day.
If you are on the hunt for a speaker, don't waste your time. You won't go wrong in blindly picking this speaker to take home or ordering it online. It is worth every penny you pay for it. If you already have nice speakers buy it as a gift for someone you love and they will be happy that you gave them this speaker instead of a gift card or a wine bottle and they will remember your gift for the rest of their lives. It will be a good gift for teenagers, and people of any age who love to listen to music.

Best Wireless Speakers Out ThereDec 01, 2010
By J.D. Cotten
Absolutely love this speaker. Incredible sound, especially at the price. I tested the D100's and found them not to handle all types of music well but the D200 handles anything I throw at it. Sounds almost as good as my home theater set up. Handles, highs, lows, and mids equally well. Very easy to connect. Hasn't lost signal for me yet. Highly recommend.

With iPhone4 : wow!Apr 20, 2011
By D. Dang
Wow!! I bought this for my kitchen / living area (about 10mx7m room). I have dock speakers for my iphone4, but I wanted something wireless.
So after reading all the reviews, I bought it from a local supplier - and it rocks!
Bluetooth : connects easily with iPhone 4, didn't ask for a password, no need for any extra dongle.
When I walk into the room, turn on the D200, press the bluetooth button once, my phone latches on to it and starts playing!
Sound : I'm no audiophile, but I love my bass. This has it. I love my music loud sometimes - this plays it so loud it's deafening. It's great!
Volume control : your iphone4 controls the D200 volume! The only catch is you have to set the D200 volume on 'maximum' to start off with, then your iPhone will control the volume from zero-to-max.
Con : The only downside is you have to keep it plugged in. Some of us like to save a few extra watts by turning it off at the powerpoint - if you do this, the sound setting resets to normal. So you'll have to turn the D200 volume up to 'maximum' again to get full iphone volume control (see my comment on Volume control above).
I'm satisfied. It's so good I won't be going back to anything non-Bluetooth! I've relegated my dock to the spare bedroom.

I Love These Speakers!Nov 09, 2011
I spent hours going over tech reviews of all the speakers out there to find the best bluetooth speakers that would fit in my price range. I settled on these which were a good hundred dollars less than I had meant to spend. There was just no need to spend more unless I was willing to pay 300 dollars more for any noticeable difference in sound quality or functionality.
Bluetooth speakers can be hit or miss as a general rule, so I tested several models out by getting them sent to my home. I paired these speakers to my iPad 2, it did give me some pairing issues but once that was taken care of, I've not had any problems since. I use these mainly for music and being able to have the speakers on one side of the room and being able to control iTunes through my iPad from the couch is awesome. It beats having a dock if you are constantly on your iPad or iPhone like me and move around a lot. Phone and Tablet speakers are anything but ideal so it is great having these speakers amplify and put out a better sound quality and volume that I prefer.
Ok, on to the performance side:
Sound quality is great, clean and crisp. I brought the volume all the way up to 100% and did not hear any crackling or garbage that sometimes happens on cheap speakers. This is a vast difference compared to those ridiculous bluetooth speakers that Target is peddling for a hundred dollars more. When I tried those, it started giving me horrible distortion at just 60 percent. The subwoofer holds it's own but it's not going to put out bass that shakes the house. I mean it's just not going to do what a standalone subwoofer would do but it does add a little kick and balances the sound nicely.
Volume level is good as well, the output levels are great. I put this on 80% volume and turned my iPad to 80% volume and it pretty much blew me out of the room.
Aesthetic Qualities: These speakers look really nice, it is sleek, the shiny black outside makes it look modern when paired with the curves of the design. It fits in nicely with my mostly dark wood furniture. It does collect dust so get that swiffer duster handy.
Bluetooth: Like I said, there were some pairing issues out of the box but that was cleared up within minutes. It now pairs seamlessly between three devices which is good. Range is about 15-20 feet in reality, and of course that can be largely effected by walls and furniture that stand between the speakers and the source.
Overall, you can't beat speakers like these at this price. You could get better speakers but they are going to run you several hundred dollars more and in this economy, who really wants to do that. You are better off settling it and going with these.

PoorFeb 04, 2012
Sound is good, but the thing has serious bluetooth connection problems. I've had it for a month and during that time it routinely disconnected midsong even though my iPad or iPhone is in the same room. And even worse, now I can't get it to connect to our family's iPad or any of our iPhones. I'm going to return it if I can only find the box it came in.
