Conclusion: Despite its deceivingly small stature and light weight, the iGroove delivers great fidelity at impressive volumes. It’s safe to say that few (if any) products in its price range offer anything close to its performance. The iGroove’s authoritative, unbloated bass response, clear, accurate midrange and brilliant high end detail are sonic attributes found primarily in much larger and/or more expensive iPod docking systems.
Pros: Impressive sound quality; compact, light and portable; S-video output for TV connection; quick-charge circuit charges iPod/iPhone rapidly
Cons: No battery power option; no FM Tuner; limited control of iPod or iPhone; no cable for 3.5mm aux input provided
Excerpt: The iGroove SXT from Klipsch is an iPod player and charger. It is compact, attractive, and does not play music at ear-splitting levels. On the contrary, one of its most delightful characteristics is that it will play music at moderate and lower volumes with balance, clarity, and a life-like resonance. A lot of small units in this category are shrill or tinny in the higher treble notes, no doubt the result of cheap tweeters.That does not apply to the iGroove SXT.
Summary: We like our Klipsch iPod docks here at Stuff, and even more so when they cost as little as this one. This SXT replaces one of the same name that we reviewed a couple of years ago – and its update is most welcome. Smart looks It looks more refined for a start, with its silver 'accent' making for a smart finish, and its compact size and fiddle-free layout are plus points. The remote – so easy to get wrong – is workmanlike, but better for it.
Excerpt: Klipsch is a very well-known in the sound industry. They make many high end product, including earphones, speakers, and iPod/iPhone docking stations. The latter is what I’ll be taking a look at today. The iGroove SXT is one of their newer models and as such it is a WWI (works with iPhone) dock, which is nice for all of us iPhone users out there. A lot of docks look similar and even can sound similar.
Conclusion: To finish up our testing, we compared the iGroove SXT to the . The Logitech is larger, with larger woofers and tweeters, and has a built-in AM/FM tuner and digital clock. No surprise: the Logitech sounded bigger, with deeper, tighter bass and superior treble detail. Even so, we appreciated the iGroove SXT's richer/warmer tonal balance, and for some buyers the Klipsch's more compact size will be an asset. Street prices are about the same for both iPod speakers.
Pros: No radio, clock, or alarm, Video output not compatible with iPhone and current generation of video iPods, Remote has limited functionality
Cons: Compact iPod speaker, Attractive design, Good sound, Relatively affordable, S-Video output for older video-enabled iPods
