Wonderful!

Pros: very versatile and long lasting battery
Cons: no wireless mic
"We purchased this system for use in our outdoor wedding. It was perfect! We were able to control all of our wedding music very easily. We made playlists for the ceremony music and the after party music, stuck the iPod on the system and rolled it - without cords!! - to where ever we wanted the music to be
During our ceremony, a friend controlled the iPod from this system from under a tree
The cordless feature makes this product very appealing
If you are wondering if it will be loud enough... we lived under the flight pattern into an international airline at time of purchase - planes flew low and noisily every few minutes... we walked the system down the sidewalk about a block, and could still hear the music at our front door!
Another great feature is the ability to control each component's volume - so the three "ins" voice, iPod and electrical instrument can be adjusted individually.

don't buy it

"we just got our second one delivered today- and still are having ISSUES. the battery won't hold a charge. the light comes on for 10 seconds once i plug it in- then goes off. the problem is is that they're sitting on the shelves too long at costco- and if the battery goes completely dead- it'll never hold a charge again (this is according to ion technical support).
we bought it for some company events we do- planning on using it for it's handy iPod and the microphone (which is NOT cordless). like i said- we already took one back b/c it wasn't holding a charge, and the second one- i just opened it yesterday and we're having the same issue. i called the ion company about it- and they said that you can't let the battery ever go dead. as well as, you can't charge it over night b/c then the battery gets OVER-charged. so it's a CHEAP battery. none of this is in the user manual- i might add.
sooo if you don't use it constantly- don't get it. i believe that some other websites have discontinued carrying this for this very same reason.
it'sonly a great product- if you plan to leave it plugged in at all times. but if you want it to be portable- THINK AGAIN"

Very Satisfied

Pros: super long battery life after charging, loud and clear, excellent microphone quality
Cons: handles seem a little weak when carrying
Model Number: Ion Audio Portable PA System with iPod Docking Adapter
"We bought this in the summer of last year and have been VERY satisfied with it. Not only is it LOUD for outdoor use, but sounds great with out ipod touch or even record player hooked up to it. We were also very happy with the VERY high quality mic that came with it. Handles may sem a little on the weak side- so just roll the thing!!"

Great Sound

Pros: sound quality
Cons: weight not for the beach
Model Number: Block Rocker
"This Amp puts out a great sound. i use it outside whether I am just grilling, or working on something around the house. it's great at parties you just hook up the ipod or CD player and crank it up. It will go for hours just like it says. I have only had it since September. Haven't used the microphone or guitar hook up but did check out the mic and it works fine."

Doesn't work with 4th Gen IPod Touch

Pros: compact convenient, fun microphone
Cons: doesn't accept the 4th gen ipod touch
Model Number: tailgater
"AFter staying on hold for 38 minutes with customer service/tech support, it was discovered that this product does not align properly for a 4th gen IPod Touch to connect to the base. Was advised to buy extenders or adapters to make it work. Older ipods work, sound quality good."

Great Product

"I have had nothing but compliments with this mobile speaker and iPod system. It will charge your iPod and hold a charge for at least an hour after it's unplugged. I've used it for company picnics, as a PA System and as the sole music source for events. Very cool product."
