Good points:
For desktop speakers they re brilliant if you have the room. I don't find that the bass booms at all and I have them about 4 inches from rear walls. They go quite load. Downside is that they are a littel big for a desk but a price to pay for sound quality. Brilliant with i-pod too. Love em! Great finish in black. I would say every student bedroom should have a pair, as well as every Dad's study.
Bad points:
Lack of speaker grill on the base unit is s bit ugly.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Beautifully made speakers with sound quality to match. Fabulous value for money too (I think I paid less than £300!!). A true audiophile product which totally blows away any 'sound dock' type system I have ever heard. Can happily play and fully compatible with my iPod Touch too, including charging. One of the best purchases I have ever made.
Bad points:
Not really a bad point but the bass can sound a little overblown unless you give these speakers a bit of room and ideally put them on stands. Mine are used more as 'bookshelf' speakers and sound great, but would definately benefit from a bit more room behind them for the rear firing bass port to produce a less coloured sound at the lower frequencies. My iPod can fail to realise it is connected sometimes too, meaning I have to turn the speakers off and on again - no big deal though and just as likely to be an iPod issue as anything to do with these speakers.

Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
There are no covers over the actual speakers ...this causes concern when the grandchildren go near them because they like to poke their fingers and the results are obvious, other than that I'm well pleased with them.

Manufacturer's Description

AktiMate Mini is an active 2-way system negating the need for a separate amplifier as it has its own 40 Watt per channel amplifier built in to one of the speakers. In early versions the iPod dock was clearly visible – it is now concealed under a cover flap on the top of the active speaker. This dock also accepts the iPhone.

The rear panel jack plug accommodates the connection to an MP3 or MP4 player or your computer. RCA stereo inputs permit connection of any hi-fi source product, e.g. CD Player, tuner etc. RCA stereo outputs to allow for the connection of a subwoofer.

Should the desire be to run a second pair of AktiMate Mini speakers, the RCA outputs accommodate daisy chaining which will provide independent volume control in each location. It has composite video output for connection to a larger monitor (handy if your iPod has photo storage or video clips). Please note that this feature is suitable only for earlier edition iPods to version 5 and Nano version 2.

Ideal for use as your television speakers the AktiMate Minis are fully shielded, so placement alongside a monitor presents no problem.

The USB connector can only be used to charge an MP3 player.

In versions manufactured before March 2010 (serial numbers commencing 1003…), an iPod will charge when it is in the dock. However new international regulations relating to Standby power mean this feature will no longer be available. However the iPod will always charge whilst it is in use or when the Mini is not in Standby.

A voltage selector switch permits a change of voltage should you wish to travel to a part of the world using different mains voltages.

The volume control on the front panel allows ease of operation a control which, with a simple press, takes the system into standby.

It has remote control and comes with a small but perfectly formed handset! The remote handset not only controls the volume of the speakers plus mute and standby, but also all basic functions of an iPod.

It comes in a choice of three dynamic finishes gloss black, gloss white or gloss red. Each speaker stands 30 cm high.

AktiMate Mini comes complete with a connecting speaker cable, a 3.5mm cable, rubber feet, an iPod accessory pack although this contains a selection only – the cradle which comes with your iPod fits neatly into the AktiMate dock.
