I do like the Harman Kardon Play+Go somewhat --- sort of a not as good but smaller, one-piece Klipsch iFi. It's not as good as the old Klipsch iFi (particularly treble) but smaller and brighter (long listening sessions at high volume not recommended). The Chestnut Hill George has a lot of features (AM/FM, detachable remote, clock, alarm) and better treble than the HK's somewhat tinny high frequencies, but is missing separation and bass. After all, it is a clock radio!
Hasn't anyone bought or heard one of these? Everyone in the U.S. buys Bose Soundock based on their brilliant sound --- er, brilliant marketing.
(To make this less abstract, I often listen to the IPOD with SR 60's or if I'm in the mood I use AKG 701s with an Emmerline SR-line-out and 320kbps or Apple Lossless. All types of music seem to sound good with this set-up!)
