==Logic 3 iStation==
After benign a member of rewardtv.co.uk for only a very short period, I earned enough points to be able to enter myself into one of the auctions which are set up to spend the point that you earn. It was the first time I had tried to win an item and as luck would have it I wasn't out bid and managed to secure this Logic 3 iStation for not as many points as I thought I would have to use. The site told me that I would have to wait up to 90 days for my reward (I had vowed not to spend any more time on the site until the item had arrived for fear of it all being a scam). Low and behold 2 weeks later this iStation arrived in the post and I couldn't have been more happy!
Having a look on various sites online I can see that you can probably pick up this ipod docking station and speakers for around £20 as a good price although in some places it does seem to be selling for much more than this. Seeing as I paid nothing but a few virtual points I was really pleased.
The iStation came well packaged with a cardboard box and it was a lot smaller than I had first thought but seeing as this was a spare speaker set for the bedroom and wasn't going to get that much use, it was a great size. Inside the box there came the main iStation, adaptor plug (with US plug adaptor too), a ipod fitting guide (allowing different ipods to be attached) and a small instruction booklet.
I have to say that I didn't need to refer to the instructions as it was fairly straight forward with setting the whole unit up. I attached the correct power adaptor and connected this to the iStation via the port at the back and once plugged in the on/off button on the front illuminated as it was already in the on position. I was able to slot my ipod straight in and away I went. It really was as simple as that.
There are very few things that you can actually do with the Logic 3 iStation as there are three buttons on the front of the item, one being the on/off button and the other two being volume up and volume down.
You position your ipod in the centre of the iStation and the two small speakers are each side of it. These are small speakers and even at full volume it is not loud enough to annoy the neighbours. It is perfect for me to play my Barry White in the bedroom though! The station itself will fit most of the ipods including the nano and the classic which is what me and Himself have and they both work well and look fine.
There is an additional button on the top which is for 3D sound although having used this several times I don't seem to really notice much difference in the sound but that could just be my untrained ears!
The speakers and instruction booklet give no indication of the actual output of sound omitted by the unit but this could just mean that they are fairly feeble in comparison to most. However for the purpose I need the for they are fine.
A really good aspect of the iStation is that it is really portable. The section which has the USB connector to plug in the ipod can be flipped up (once the ipod has been removed) and this makes the whole unit very small and flat. The length of the iStation is around 15 cm and the width 10 cm whilst the depth is a mere 3 cm. This is the sort of device that is perfect for taking on holiday with you. Of course as it is portable, there are slots to put in 4 AA batteries which I guess would make the whole unit far heavier but with these not in-situ the whole iStation is really light anyway.
I can't say that this is the best iStation out there and thankfully I have another in the kitchen which gives out a better sound and is more in usse. However this small unit is perfect to have. It gives a clear sound which although may not be loud or excessively bass filled is crisp and adequate for my needs.
The device not only plays my music but will also charge up my ipod for when I am planning on taking it out and about. The unit is perfect for taking to various places as it fits into my handbag with ease and can use batteries as well as the mains.
I think it is a great little item that I am so pleased to have won/earned on rewardtv! I think for general use and usefulness of this item I am going to award a good score of 4 out of 5 stars. It is not the best out there but it is affordable, useful, transportable and plays the music clearly.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you.
Many thanks for taking the time to read
