Thodio iBox, Rolling Stone Magazine review


    "Militia chic with clear and punchy sound" -Wired Magazine UK on the A-BOX Heavy edition

    "I expected something good but the sound is just perfect, I've got 2 80Watts home audio speakers pluged on a amplifier, with an already very good quality but your box beat them on the punchy aspect, the gradings are just perfect, it slaps you in the face, and no vibrations, every detail is over-clean, you're a Dutch magician" -Charles D. from France on the A-BOX Heavy edition 

    "I received my A-Box about a week ago. I love it! Great design, great sound. Can't wait to hit the beach with it this summer! Thanks again for the great product" -Joseph P. from the US on the A-BOX Heavy edition

    "The sound is amazing!!!!! I have no idea how so much sound can come out of such a small box!! and a metal one at that!! Absolutely fantastic job mate! Worth every penny. Well done sir" -Jose R. from the US on the A-BOX Heavy edition

    "As you go through life, you hope to get an honest shake. Very few times are you surprised when you get more. This is one of those times!" -Greg C. from the US on the A-BOX Heavy edition


    "klingt gut!" -playboy germany

    "the thodio iBox is the best-looking iPod amp we've seen" -ralph lauren rugby,

    "there are countless iPod docks on the market, but few are as carefully crafted as the thodio iBox lineup from amsterdam"

    "the result of the Dutch engineers' strives is the iBox, a dedicated iPod speaker solution which is simply astonishing by looks and sound alike, the iBox from thodio is one piece of audio gear which can instantly integrate in any home decor with spectacular results, no matter if you're thinking about a retro decor or a modern setting breathing simplicity"

    "a fully handcrafted yet technologically advanced iPod amplifier that looks like Bose's rich, sophisticated uncle"

    "iPod docks are everywhere on the market. However, I believe that none look as good as the thodio iBox"

    "the thodio iBox is a welcome break from the uniformity in design we see where the iPod and its accessories are concerned"

    "this is a smart looking, solid, handmade option, that stands out from its competitors by virtue of its unconventional design"

    "iPod dock... ok, there are heaps of them around but this one at least looks like is was lovingly handcrafted not bashed out of a dirty factory"

    iBox XC:

    "I have the large XC version. I have used it hundreds of hours and LOVE IT !
    Nothing made by any MFG. that is portable comes close.
    Worth every penny.

    "I have the Thodio iBox XC.

    It truly is audiophile sound. 

    I don't think there's anything out there that compares.

    Note: For those of you wondering, yes, I did a side by side with my friend's Bose Acoustic Wave II.

    He should be ordering his iBox shortly after he finds a buyer for his Bose." Eric W. from Hawaii.

    "My Thodio Review>>>>Wow! Not sure where to start!! I’ve been working with Thomas Spaans in building my XC’s for quite a while!!! I knew the products were going to be good but had no idea what I was in for…(I’ll try and make this review short…lol ….I have had an obsession with home audio equipment since I can recall. I used to work for a high end California based retailer who placed a few of their stores out here in Florida. Nevertheless, I got to sell some incredibly high end stuff which allowed me to consume not just my clienteles genre of music styles and knowledge but of course their discriminating taste in wanting the best of the best when it came to Home Audio. 

    I used to throw pool parties with my friends and was always in charge of bringing the music. I owned a Bose dock, which was ok for the time being, but it just did not do it for me. It lacked mids, some highs ….just overall transparency.. I decided to take a journey in search of something portable that would not only satisfy my crazy audio needs (quality, power…materials…you name it) but something that would also wow people as far as looks and everything above. That’s when I came across Thodio’s page. It was like love at first site  I came in contact with Thomas a few days later and the process of building my two XC’s were a go. What I love about Thodio as a company is the patience they had with me throughout the whole entire process….You want to talk about customization! I pretty much nailed it with everything I had him do to mine (thanks again Thomas) 

    When it came to customization, I made sure to not miss or overlook any needed specifics or details, neither did Thodio, they actually helped me in ways to improve on the specifics that I wanted. ..just wow!!!! I have never worked with a company that was so personable and eager to meet all of my expectations! Lets now get to the good part!!!! When I got my XC’s delivered…I think I called in to work sick that day from all of the excitement! Opening up the package on these things was just stunning!! I Could not believe the type of craftsmanship that were put into my XC’s!!! The sound was just breath taking!!!! I think my Bose dock started crying from what was being delivered out of the XC!!! (Needless to say..the Bose got tossed  The sounds were warm, vibrant and made me feel as if I was right on stage with the artist. The TK2050 amp is no joke folks!!! When it comes to power, the XC is just a monster!! It craves power like no other!!! This isn’t the power most people are used to from the everyday and ordinary plastic boom boxes you find out on the shelf. The power is INCREDIBLY STRONG, in combination with quality sounds that are just LUSH!!! No distortion whatsoever!!! It just makes you want to rehear all of your old tracks, because I guarantee you might have missed something=) 

    These things are not cheap but I must say, for what its worth..Im now a Thodio Customer for life! Going to order my third XC from him in the near future (pretty soon actually  ..Thomas just wanted to say thanks for all your patience, hard work and dedication!! Thanks for making Thodio what it is today!!! We’ll keep in touch soon."
