The Geneva Sound System Model S features a digital FM tuner and a motorized retractable dock for your iPod or iPhone that disappears into the cabinet when not in use. Its elegant, sophisticated cabinet houses a high-performance powered speaker system that delivers exceptionally detailed sound,

Operate your docked player with the system's remote, or use the touch controls integrated into the cabinet's top. These controls mimic the iPod click wheel and allow full operation of your player. When you disconnect your iPod, the backlit controls go dark, making them disappear into the cabinet's finish.

An LED display mounted behind the speaker grille shows you the systme's operating mode, time, and station frequency. The GenevaSound S features a piano key-finish, and includes a brushed metal pedestal you can use to lift it up off the table's surface.

From the review Geneva Sound Model S -- Genuinely Superb
"I enjoyed the Model S very much. When I took it out of the box I could feel the build quality, and the performance didn't disappoint. If you're at all concerned about sound quality — even in a "clock radio" — then I'd recommend the Model S. Even just sitting there it added to our room's ambiance!"

— Ralph, Crutchfield Blog Editor and A/V Writer

Features

Overview: The Geneva Sound System Model S is a stereo clock radio with iPod/iPhone dock, crafted in a single cabinet made out of piano lacquered (high-density composite fiber). Its compact size and amazing sound performance makes it a very versatile system that can play all genres of music very well in any room; such as your living-room, dining-room, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, office, or den.

Lacquer Cabinet: The Geneva Sound System Model S features a high-density composite fiber cabinet with a piano lacquered finish. Its available in white, black, or red finishes

LED Display: The Model S has a LED display (red) visible under the front cover showing clock, audio input, and control settings

High Fidelity Sound: The Geneva Sound System Model S offers high fidelity 2-channel sound with digital signal processor, bass enhancement, and EmbracingSound to enhance compressed audio.

  • Digital Amplifier: The Model S is equipped with a 15-watt x 2-channel digital amplifier. The unit's powerful amplifier is award winning for energy efficiency.
  • Dual Speakers: Underneath the front grill there are two independent speakers right next to each other, with separate acoustic chambers and separate 3" full-range drivers.
  • EmbracingSound: By using the patent pending "Embracing Sound" Technology, the stereo sweet spot is larger than in a conventional two-speaker setup.
  • Bass & Treble Control: You can independently adjust the unit's bass (100 Hz) and treble (6 kHz) from -6 to +6 dB.

iPod PowerDock: The Geneva Sound System Model S features an integrated, top-mounted iPod Universal Dock for iPod and iPhone. The integrated iPod dock is powered and disappears when not in use. When the iPod/iPhone is removed, the motorized PowerDock spins closed and the protruding iPod/iPhone 30-pin connector disappears into the cabinet, protecting it from damage and dust (press the mode button to open the dock). The Model S provides playback, control, and charging of your iPod/iPhone while docked. Your iPod or iPhone can be controlled with the included remote or with the unit's touch-sensitive buttons. The touch panel also offers a scroll wheel, so your connected iPod can be browsed similar to using the iPod's click-wheel. The Model S is "Made for iPod/iPhone compatible" and supports the following iPod/iPhone model functions (April 2010).

Note: This unit does not offer iPod/iPhone information display. Your docked iPod or iPhone will remain fully functional so you can view your iPod or iPhone content from its own display screen. Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the device and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to revert to the older software version or wait until an newer software update is available.

FM Radio: The Geneva Sound System Model S is equipped with a built-in FM radio with digital tuner and 6 presets. The unit features a telescoping FM antenna.

Note: This unit features a PAL antenna input. You will need the Geneva Antenna adapter (761ANTADP, sold separately) to connect another manufacture's antenna.

Auxiliary Input: The unit features a rear-panel 3.5mm auxiliary input for connecting external audio sources, such as an MP3 player or your PC.

Note: If an iPod is docked and playing, the iPod sound and the auxiliary input's external audio will be mixed.

TouchLight Controls: The unit's TouchLight controls are invisible until a hand reaches for the cabinet.

Remote Control: The Geneva Sound System Model S includes an IR remote control for wireless operation of the unit. It will control all functions of the system, including iPod/iPhone control.

Alarm Clock: The Geneva Sound System Model S features a built-in clock with programmable alarm. The alarm will use the latest source mode and audio setting (if the audio level is too low, an internal beep tone is activated). While the alarm is active, touch whatever key of the touch panel to "snooze" the alarm for ten minutes. To acknowledge the alarm push any key on the remote control. Without acknowledgement, the unit will automatically go to stand-by mode after playing for 20 minutes.

Note: The unit can bridge a power loss for up to one hour and keep the exact time, and in case of no audio source, a built-in beeper will be activated.

Table-Top Stand: This Geneva Sound System Model S comes with rubber feet and an aluminum table stand. The table stand, allows you to elevate the system, so it takes up less space on a nightstand, a counter, or a desk. The table-top stand measures 6.9375" in diameter and raises the height of the unit to 8.625".

Power Supply: The Geneva Sound System Model S operates off of standard household AC current using the supplied 6' AC power cord.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great sound and iPod functions. Nice remote with radio presets it does not dissapoint . Seems like a lot of money but considering all the $100 dollar ones i tossed yjis is a keeper

Pros: Size - Finish - Sound - Controls - clarity - Looks Great

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My wife has the Bose but I was looking to make more of a statement. The Geneva sounds
just as good if not better than the Bose and it looks much better. I am enjoying listening to
tunes on the GenevaSound Model S

Great design

Written By Connor, San Diego on Tuesday, February 01, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a sleek machine for your ipod. The sound fills up a room. It has a good remote and it even has an alarm clock, but this is not your ordinary alarm clock radio. Worth the money!
