Good Bit of Kit
This review is a bit of good and bad. Lets get the bad out of the way first.
The Cygnett Soundwave Speaker, if you are looking for a really portable small speaker, dont get this. it is bigger than it looks in the pictures. Although Portable (Battery or Mains) It requires 8 AA Batteries. The portability is more suited to using it out in the garden for say a BBQ or taking it on a caravan holiday, portable as in taking to work etc, it is too big, there are smaller units on the market.
On the Positive side, I was really impressed with the sound quality of the Cygnett Soundwave and was able to connect it to my i Pad and i Phone within seconds with no issues whatsoever. I use it mainly in my Living Room where it sits nicely on top of my Sky Box under my TV. Even when I move my i Pad or i Phone to my bedroom, the connection is still very good. The sound quality as mentioned above is really good and on a par with some of the more expensive speakers. My flat is small (1 Bedroom) so the volume level of the Cygnett is ideal. Bigger households may require a more powerful unit, however the Cygnett would be powerful enough for most bedrooms or average sized living rooms. On holiday in a caravan it would be more than adequate.
On the Cygnett Dock, Well as the old saying goes, "It does exactly what it says on the tin!" I was really impressed with the build quality of the dock, the weight is also ideal as even with the i Pad in portrait, you just know your device is secure and isn't going to be top heavy and topple over. The adjustable thickness means you can use your device on it's own or in a case (I have an Otterbox for my i Pad).
All in all this is a very nice and very functional package at a very reasonable price. Both the Cygnett Speaker and the Cygnett Dock could easily sell on their own seperately, such is their quality. But as a combined package - perfect.

Just the job, well worth the money
I was after a speaker system so I could stream Internet radio from my phone, I was previously using a pocket boom, portable speaker, but I just fancied something with abit more presence, I read other peoples reviews on this and it sounded perfect for what I wanted.
After getting it, next day delivery, I couldn't wait to get home from work to try it, I must say it was well worth the wait. After taking about 30 seconds to pair my phone up, I was streaming my music and radio within a couple of moments of getting it out of the box. The sound is very good for the size and you get a good volume without distortion, the range of my iPhone wasn't great, prob about 5-6 metres away, but saying that It was still far enough for me to put my phone on charge and have the speaker where I wanted it.
Overall I am very impressed with this and would highly recommend it, very pleased indeed
