Speaker Specifications

Speaker Configuration
This is the configuration of the speakers in the home theater system. The more speakers, the more realistic the surround sound is.
Peak Power Handling
Peak power handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle during a brief musical burst. The RMS power range figure is a much more reliable rating for determining the speaker's power requirements. The Peak power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
40 watts
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
150 - 10000 Hz

Playback Features

The unit offers MP3 playback.

MP3 should not be confused with MPEG-3. MP3 files are the third audio layer of a MPEG-1 file. The compression algorithm of a MP3 file reduces the file size while keeping the audio quality.

If a unit is Bluetooth capable, it typically can allow you to connect to your Bluetooth cell phone to make and receive calls. Others can access your phone and address book too via Bluetooth. Other Bluetooth capable units offer even more services, such as live traffic information and map upgrades.

More uses of Bluetooth technology include transmitting music to a compatible receiver, printing wirelessly from a computer, and many other wireless uses. Please see the item description for more specific information regarding what features the unit includes.

This will designate if thedevice has a built-in microphone for the recording or transmitting of audio.

iPod Compatibility

Compatible Apple Devices
This list refers to the Apple devices that the product is compatible with.

Some Car stereos are compatible with iPods and/or iPhones. If the headunit can connect to an iPod or iPhone via USB or iPod connection cable, these listed iPods are compatible. This list does not apply if the iPod is being connected through the 3.5mm mini-jack plug. Newer iPods are usually compatible if the appropriate adapters are purchased and used.

Any iPods/iPhones released after the release date of this product have not been checked by the manufacturer and/or Sonic Electronix for compatibility. We therefore cannot guarantee their compatibilities or incompatibilities, including, but not limited to: playback, video, charging, and response time.

3G iPod (10, 15, 20, 30 & 40GB)
Charges the iPod
This means that the device provides a charge to the iPod or iPhone.
Mounts the iPod
This means that the device will mount the iPod or iPhone and hold it secure. This is a common feature for some iPod car devices that will mount the iPod on the dash of the car.
iPod Dockable
This designates if an iPod can be docked the particular device. This feature applies it to home DVD/Blu-ay players, iPod accessories, alarm clocks, and more. When an iPod is docked, it will charge the iPod. Some devices will support the playback of video off of a docked compatible iPod. Some players include a dock or have one built-in, while others require you to purchase it separately.
Yes (Dock Built-In)
This will tell you if the unit features Apple AirPlay technology for playing music wirelessly from your device. AirPlay lets you wirelessly stream what’s on your iOS device and Mac to your speakers. Guests can even easily share their content with peer-to-peer AirPlay.


Additional Audio/Video Inputs
These inputs enable the unit to receive an audio or video signal from a separate source. There are many different types of connections and ways to accomplish this. Most common are RCA Composite cables and 3.5mm mini-jack plugs.

RCA Composite Inputs
These are your typical red, white, and yellow RCA composite cables that are common among devices with audio and video inputs. The red and white cables are dedicated for audio. The red cable is for the right channel and the white is for the left channel. The yellow cable is specifically for the video signal. Because this type of auxiliary cable contains 2 channels of audio, it will support stereo sound.

This is commonly referred to as a mini-jack or a headphone jack. It is a 3.5mm plug that transfers audio only. There is a right and left audio channel on the plug which allows for stereo sound playback.

3.5mm AV Input
These plugs look similar to the common 3.5mm mini-jack, however they carry a third channel dedicated for video.

This means that an auxiliary input is possible, but only with the use of an optional accessory. These optional adapters will sometimes use the CD Changer port or other port on the back of a unit that might restrict the use of other expandability features. These accessories are typically sold separately.

Perfect for my kitchen!

January 13, 2013

I a little (OK a lot) of an audiophile, and I love to cook, and I wanted a reasonably sized iPod player/radio for my kitchen for flour dancing, Christmas cookies, news, etc. And I didn't want to break the bank for overrated systems either. I tried this one, and I'm very happy with it. There is enough equalizer control to switch between heavy bass rock, and sweet piano, the radio works fine, and the size is perfect for a corner in my kitchen. Big enough for the sound I want, but not so big it takes too much counter space. I'm very happy with this Sony!

great sound

November 19, 2012

I liked this sony so much that after i bought the first one, I bought two more. The sound is great. Almost like a full system. Deep base and quality sound. I also like the fact that it can be portable. My kids are happy that they can use their Ipod on it and it charges while in use. thanks Sonic Electronix. Fast shipping and the product was well packed for safe shipping. I will continue to buy from you.

I would recommend another product.

February 17, 2013

While this RDP has great sound, the I Phone charger/player did not work. It did work fine with the aux cord, but that kind of defeats the purpose. The electrical charge lasts a long time, and overall am happy with the device.

Best Price for this quality!!

December 13, 2012

I had a Bose sound-dock before, and it dies! So my choice was to spend more money for less feature to stick with Bose. Sony always made good product. My wife wanted to be able to listen radio and this sound-dock was able to do it. The battery last a few hours and I just love the fact you can put anything with a mini-jack like your laptop or any kind of other device NOT only an Ipod, and have a great sound. About the sound, which is my job (sound engineer), there is plenty of power, the low end is warm enough, and crispy in the high end. So if you want something you can take with you, even when you don't have power, and looking for some quality this one is for you, you won't be disappointed.
