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.
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
Summary: Der Klipsch Igroove SXT ist ein sehr erfreuliches Ipod-Audiosystem, mit einer für diesen Preis überragenden Verarbeitungs- und Klangqualität. Kompakter Sound in guter Qualität ist ideal für Studenten und auch im Schlafzimmer nicht fehl am Platz. Eine Alternative zur Hi-Fi-Anlage kann der Igroove zwar nicht sein, aber für 120 Euro ein sehr gutes Angebot.
