Summary: I usually don't write reviews but this product deserves it. I am very sceptical about reviews but decided to take the plunge and bought two of these, one for me and one as a present. I already own a Bose dock so I know good sound when I hear it. The unit looks great in high gloss black and is slightly curved giving a clean modern look. It feels like a quality made product and has a very easy to use micro remote: play, skip track, increase/decrease volume etc.
Summary: Sorry to spoil the 5-star party, but I had problems with this and had to return it. Docking was initially ok with two iPod 80GB Classics and an iPhone 3G, but after a couple of months, of very light usage I hasten to add, both iPods and iPhone would not connect properly with the male pin connector - I really don't know why, as there was nothing loose and the connection seemed firm.
Summary: This is the second iPod docking station/speaker unit I have bought over the last few weeks. While the design is very nice, the build quality very high and the sound produced by the speakers also very good, I was upset to find it so difficult to use with my iPod Touch! The description says it's compatible with the Touch however it is very difficult to get it in and out due to two rubber grips on the speakers, and if you push it in too far you cannot use the remote...
Summary: I have been a music/hi-fi fan from as soon as I could afford to buy music and decent kit. My current system is a Quad/Naim/Mission combo that really rocks. I purchased the Klipsch iGroove speaker system in order to have a portable system to move easily from room to room that is also compatible with iPod Nano 3G.
Summary: I bought this system on the strength of the incredible reviews. It really is fantastic. A lovely balanced and rounded sound. My new Ipod Nano fits perfectly and there is enough power to fill a normal sized room. I am so glad I did not spend the extra money on a Bose.
Summary: I was recently looking for an ipod dock, all I wanted was one that sounded good, and maybe looked good (i'm quite shallow) So after much thought I went with the Igroove, even though I was close to choosing the JBL Radial. I'm glad I didn't. Recieved my Igroove via courrier ~(citylink uk) and was quite excited about seeing it, I was initially dissapointed as it was smaller than I imagined but set it up anyway.
Summary: I agree with everything said about the sound you get for the price. However I bought a 3rd generation nano to use with this and when using the supplied "Nano" bracket it actually covers the ipods scroll wheel. If I don't use the bracket I can touch MOST of the wheel, but then the back of the ipod isn't supported and so the connection would soon break. So I've kept the igroove and sent back the nano (which was faulty also) and gone for a classic instead.
Summary: Possibly like most people looking for an iPod docking station I initially looked at the Bose route, I then stumbled across the Klipsch after an internet search. I purchased it based on all the excellent feedback and once started to use it can understand the good press it receives. It looks quality, simple understated design, feels quality, heavy well made feel to the piece and certainly sounds it, rich undistorted sounds.
Summary: ........ any iPod(R), digital music player, gaming machine, cell phone or portable satellite radio that features a headphone jack." That's what it says on the box and that's what it does! I bought the iGrove HG and I love it! Why?... - great sound (clear & good range) - robust design (looks like it will withstand a fall - not that I want to try it out!
Summary: I won't bore you with the details & the vast amounts of money I've spent on this slippery slope to 'Portable' Audiophilia. Countless numbers of Earphones, Portable Amps, quality OFC Cables & Interconnects etc.... I'm still no Audiophile in the true sense of the word but I'm striving to be & I know good quality sound in audio products. As with most of the reviewers I do the legwork & research in all that I buy & I've made mistakes.
