Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has great features This is an awesome system. Very loud and sounds like you are in a nightclub. Still haven't figure out how to usw the DJ effects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Great sound quality and bass. I like rock music and it's hard to find something that does bass on this level that doesn't distort my music. Only pet peeves is the auto-dj effect(random function). It cuts off the end and beginnings of songs which is annoying, you can turn it off but it's not the default setting. Also I wish it was more portable. All in all a great system though.
