iHome iW1 AirPlay audio system looks, but doesn't sound, great
28 December 2011
Excerpt: (1 items) iHome's $300 iW1 AirPlay wireless audio system looks sharper than it sounds, but despite a few design oddities and audio quality that’s disappointing given the system's price, the iW1 may deserve your consideration. The iW1's body is mostly black, with chrome trim wrapping around the base. Much of the exterior is clad in black fabric.
Excerpt: The iW1 introduced a number of firsts for Airplay systems, most importantly incorporating a rechargeable battery that allows the iW1 to be used independently from a power outlet. It’s a useful feature but unfortunately, in our experience, the device only lasted a couple of hours away from its docking station.
