As with most "desktop" iPod speakers, you can get better sound quality at a lower price from a number of non-iPod-specific sub/sat speaker systems. And I was a bit disappointed by the Orb's treble detail. That said, the Orb produces generally good sound, offers an appealing feature set, and is well-made. And you're unlikely to find another system that takes up this little space on your desk, or looks this good, and puts out comparable volume. It's a reasonably priced and attractive alternative to the more expensive desktop iPod speaker systems out there.--Dan Frakes
