I haven't had this tower very long, but so far I'm very impressed. After I placed my order for this, I managed to find the Bose SoundDock II for less than half price and purchased that as well. Though the Bose has awesome sound, the Pyle tower has great sound as well, more functionality, and I can hear the music playing in almost every room of my 2000+ sf home. Great product and thus far, I'm beyond pleased. Decided to keep them both! When I first received, sound on it wasn't great...make sure you read the directions as it can be adjusted and was much better once I customized the subwoofer, base and so on. Really like the wood look which matches the rest of the furniture in my office.
I bought one of these Pyle Theater Tower based on the specs and pictures...what a waste of money. It appears well made and everything works, but the sound is muddy, dead and booms. It very heavy on the bass with muddy mid-rage and almost no treble. For less money you can buy a smaller table top iPod dock speakers that sound MUCH better. It looks impressive and like it would really fill the room with great sound, but it sounds like you took a big speaker, turned it up loud and then put two blanket over it. Stay away.
