Harman Kardon is known for quality sound and this system held up to most of my expectations and exceeded in others. The Go+Play Micro Speaker System is designed for iPod but says in the description that it will work with other MP3 players as well. We have a variety of MP3 players in our home: iPod Classic 5th Gen, iPod Touch 2nd Gen, SanDisk Sansa Li'l Monsta, and a SanDisk Sansa View. The Go+Play worked with all with NO problem! I'm especially pleased because we have not found anything that will support the Li'l Monsta - until now. Another thing that pleased me was this system can also be hooked up to other auxiliary devices like a CD player, a PC or laptop and satellite radio!
The Go+Play can be hooked up to your TV or computer to do a slide show or video from you MP3 player, making it really nice to share things with family or friends. It can also be hooked up to your computer and interface with iTunes to sync you iPod. I was a bit disappointed though, as there were no cables of any type included. If you plan on using these features, you will need to purchase a video cable, an audio cable (3.5mm), and a USB cable. (The USB cable is not the normal size, but a larger one like on a printer.)
The Go+Play can be run on both batteries (8 C-cell) or by using the included power supply. This makes it nice to take along, but is lovely enough to have in any room in the home. Another nice feature... It comes with a remote that allows one to control the unit (when using an iPod) from a distance away. The remote will only control volume when using an auxiliary device - everything else has to be controlled directly from the device you've hooked up to the sound system.
The sound quality is very nice, but I find it lacking some in the base. Overall, the Go+Play system is a very nice sound system that I would definitely recommend to both my family and friends.
