iPod Hi-Fi

Apple has announced a shelve style external speaker system for the iPod. It’s primarily designed to sit on shelve, however, it can run on D cell batteries. As you would expect it charges your iPod while in the dock on the top of the unit. And it comes with an Apple Remote.

I wonder why Apple would enter this market. There are already numerous solutions in place. Apple’s expertise is in digital technology, not sound technology.

That being said, I will consider this product. I love having my iPod in the office connected to a decent set of speakers. I’m currently using a set up is a MegaWorks 3 speaker system from Cambridge SoundWorks and I love it. This thoroughly enhances my iPod experience. However, it’s not portable and it lacks a remote. I’ll definitely look at this product when I start my next job.

Hi Nice Blog .Setting the backlight to “always on” will significantly reduce your Ipod batteries life. Only use the backlight when necessary.
