Sony RDP-XF100iP review: Sony RDP-XF100iP


Sony RDP-XF100iP

The Sony RDP-XF100iP delivers impressively powerful sound given its portable size; comes with a useful remote control and FM radio.

In spite of its portability, the hefty, minimal design doesn't lend itself to active outdoor use. The concave buttons on the top are difficult to distinguish.

The Sony RDP-XF100iP is a versatile, powerful iPod/iPhone speaker for around the home that surprises with its deep low-end sound.

Sony RDP-XF100iP iPod Speaker - Portable Songstress


The Sony RDP-XF100iP iPod Speaker is Sony's latest premium iPod/iPhone docking device and features a removable lithium-ion battery for portability. We check to see if it has the lungs to match.
