Excerpt: By serving up premium sound quality, Klipsch’s remarkably simple iGroove SXT delivers where most others have failed. Lightweight and unassuming, it may be just what you’ve been looking for in a portable iPod or iPhone speaker system. Be aware, however: The device does come with some drawbacks, including the lack of several features commonly found on competing models.
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.
Excerpt: (1 items) When we reviewed Klipsch's iGroove HG desktop iPod speaker system back in September 2006, we were impressed by its full, rich sound and attractive design; it wasn't the best desktop system on the market, but it was one to consider if you were in the market. However, as with most of the top-tier desktop speakers, the iGroove's price tag -- $250 -- made it too expensive for many iPod owners.
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.
Excerpt: Our cup runneth over with Klipsch iPod docks. Not content with giving the iGroove HG the once over earlier in 2010, the firm now offers the new iGroove SXT. For the same price. We were very much taken by the HG; a hefty dock capable of a room-filling sound. The SXT (which replaces the £80 dock of the same name which we tested in 200 looks more refined. Its silver ‘accent' makes for a smarter finish than the HG, and it's less fiddly and more compact, too.
