I watched this video http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105-10027437-1.html and couldn't believe that the guy "reviews" the Boom without mentioning the audio quality.

Is there a video anywhere that discusses the audio quality? I'm wondering what sort of bass you can get from such a small unit.

I'd be interested in buying a Boom, but not if the audio is weak & tinny.

Think of the opposite of weak and tinny - that's pretty much what it sounds like. The bass obviously can't go really low - but what there is is high quality and drums/bass guitar sound like...drums and bass guitar. If you are a fan of church organs you might need to add a sub.

You should check out this thread on the Audiophile forum...

Thanks Phil. Sounds like the audio performance is excellent for the form factor.

I've posted my next question in that thread.
