Received quickly and well packaged. Product is neat and practical design, works very well and gives a very clear reproduction which for the price is very good value for money. Bought this to use on occasions in the garden so not in use all the time. One point which could be improved – i have a ipod nano and this does not sit on the front as the docking connection is different (i am not technical) it has to be connected using a lead so cannot charge. There is no apple adaptor included which is does say must be used or it will charge but not play. This is not explained on the sales description, it just says it is compatible, which it is but not in the same way as an ipod.
I read other peoples’ reviews before buying this product and i too have also been very impressed with the sound quality of this docking station. Initially i did not remove my ipod touch case so there was not a proper connection. It is not too large and fits nicely on my kitchen worktop. I bought it mainly for listening to digital radio through my ipod touch as the fm signal is poor during high pressure conditions and the dab signal is poor as well. It is easy to use and the remote control is useful. I would recommend this product as a cost effective docking station. My partner was so impressed he bought one too.
This is one of a number of azatom products that i have bought and they have given excellent sound quality for their size. The house dance dock is only 24 watts as opposed to the revolution 2 which has 48 watts but it is still a reasonable sound quality and would definitely be loud enough for domestic use. The remote that came with the house dance model also works with my revolution 2 model so that is handy as the remote supplied with revolution 2 has had to be replaced a few times. Perhaps the company should supply the remote for the house dance dock for the revolution 2?.I have always had excellent customer service from this company and i have recommended their products to other people.

Comments from buyers
“very surprised 😃😃, Good value for money, Doesn’t like the iPhone 5 onwards”
Very impressed, i found it difficult to find a good quality dock for an ipod classic. This is well made and produces a reasonable sound quality, better than i expected at this price point.
I looks very good, it is compact, the sound is good which means i am happy with it. But i did not read everything about the speaker as i thought it would be ‘bleutooth’. So my mistake and understandable i am disappointed. I ordered it from the uk but living in spain thus will be too expensive to return it.
An excellent docking port for my iphone 4s. The phone rests on horizontal cylinder, as pictured. So the socket doesnt come loose and get bent. Speaker sound quality= very good. Socket got bent with my last docking station.
What a great little speaker. It is small and odd shaped but the sound is amazing. Love the fact it is made of plastic making it very easy to keep clean. Charges my old ipod nano with a 30pin connector.
Excellent volume range and (unlike the product this replaced) it doesn;t switch itself off during quiet music passages. Remote works well and has a decent range. Only,had it a week so time will tell regarding reliablity etc. Very good value for money overall.
Its getting harder to buy an ipod dock/speaker set that doesnt rely on bluetooth coonectivity this is handy for its size and portabilitybut the speakers are on either end of the cylnder so the sound direction is odd and you dont get a real stereo effect. It was reasonably priced and works well for my yoga groups in smaller halls.
At home i listen to my 4th generation ipod nano and 5th generation ipod nano with 30 to 8 pin apple adapter on a panasonic sc-pmx5db stereo system but wanted something small enough to play them on while on holiday. The mains adapter that came with my azatom is suitable for 100 to 240 volts a. Delivery was extremely quick. I found that the sound quality is good, crisp and clean but i miss any provision for control of the treble and bass. The remote control gives complete control of music selection with my 4th generation ipod nano but i haven’t been able to select music on the 5th generation ipod but i have only had it for just a week and it may need a bit more investigation.
The sound range on this little player is quite amazing. The only thing that bugs me is the fact that you can’t switch off the blue light at the front and in a dark room it’s incredibly bright and a tad off putting.
This docking/speaker station is a very well built and great sounding staion,i would recommend this product specifically for the reason ive stated. However its adaptor isnt any good for the ipod touch 5th generation, so unfortunately at a cost of £24. 99p i had to buy an ipod touch adaptor to fit in the one on the docking station. I really think its very deceiving to lead the public to believe it works with any ipod touch when it actually doesnt [yes it does.But only if you buy an adaptor to suit it i think it would be more honest and true to their business if they would state on their advertising that it only works without an adaptor on certain ipod touch units. Other than that i cant fault the product at all,but it may pay you to look at other stations that perhaps would suit an ipod touch 5th generation. Im not one to complain as a rule but i do not like to be mislead into believing its something it isnt. ]
Bought about a month ago, so the speakers have had a good run in to give them a fair review ( i work in a small shop and use them daily ) i have to say i am very impressed with them. They pack quite a punch with volume ( but the quality and clarity will diminish at the very top level – which is common of a lot of speakers anyway ) but for the space i work in, they are great. They look very neat and funky too, and take up hardly any space at all. Easy and simple to use remote controls saves from using the buttons on the device. I use these for my ipod 2nd generation.
Easy to use and connect an ipod nano. Speaker has the old 30pin apple connector. Groovy design and when switched on, it has a nice blue light. Bought as a gift and they love it.

I’ve had similar issues as other users where the remote stopped working pretty much right away and the rest of the buttons are pretty temperamental (have to unplug it and plug it back in again to get it to work). But i’m too lazy to send it back for a replacement or to hunt around looking for another model so i’m just dealing with it.
Just tried it out and it connected to my ipod mini straight away and charged it at the same time. The volume seems to go up very high and should be perfect for my baby music classes. The remote works perfectly with the ipod and allows it to control the tracks and back and forth through the menus. Very pleased with the purchase.
This has replaced a large sound system. This is much more compact and looks great in our lounge.
This is as good as the majority of reviewers have indicated. A really neat ipod player which packs a punch for a very reasonable price. The reason i didn’t give it 5 stars is because the remote is not very smooth to operate: i often have to press it hard, several times, to effect the operation required, which can be frustrating. I don’t know if this is because the battery supplied is actually not giving full power.
It plays music nicely, although turning the sound up and down doesn’t always work. The biggest fault is that it won’t play when charging.
A well designed product, meaning that i can play my ipod through speakers as well as the ear phonesazatom® house dance black: ipod – iphone – ipod touch and nano docking station speaker.

Bought this to, mainly, take on holiday. At home i usually listen to my 160gb ipod classic using either sennheiser earphones or bose over ear headphones but wanted something so that we could all listen together when in holiday accommodation. Arrived securely packaged and was simple to set up, remote control works perfectly and the volume is fine. Hopefully the cradle for the ipod will be sufficiently robust. Early days but very satisfied so far, especially at this price point.
I got this cause my last ipod speakers finally gave in after breaking ages ago. These speakers are so much better and werent too expensive. Sound is of great quality and just loud enough for me to listen to music in my room. But the music doesn’t play right away, when i switch it on, i have to turn it off and on again before music plays – slightly annoying but not a major bother. The remote stopped working about a month after i got it though, i replaced the batteries but still no luck.
I’ve bought a few of the azatom products for my children and also for our holiday cottage and been happy with the sound quality, and like the fact that it will charge the iphone as it plays, or is sat there (old connector style). This new one works fine with the iphone 4 etc, i. The older iphones, but i bought a lightning adaptor as suggested for the newer ones, and it doesn’t work – tried a couple of different phones (iphone 5s, iphone 6plus), and a couple of adaptors, but no joy, slightly disappointing as although you can still connect the phone with a cable, it won’t then charge. The sound quality is still good though.
