Excerpt: (1 items) When we reviewed Logitech's $300 AudioStation back in June 2007, it impressed us with its sound quality, design, and features; it quickly became one of our favorite iPod speaker systems, and it earned one of our 2007 Plays Of The Year awards. Logitech has since replaced the AudioStation with the $300 Pure-Fi Elite, a system that picks up where the AudioStation left off, differing only slightly in appearance and including several minor feature changes.
Excerpt: The Logitech Pure-Fi Elite, if not the most ‘world-changing' design ever, is still a looker. But like the Apple iPod Hi-Fi, it has woolly bass, confused midrange and poor timing. And a built-in radio can only do so much to compensate for the sonic shortcomings.
Conclusion: Five hundred bucks is a lot to spend for an iPod speaker system, but if you're trying to decide between this model and the , the Pure-Fi Elite certainly holds its own in terms of style and sound quality (some might even argue it's superior on both fronts), and it far and away surpasses the Bose in the features department. In other words, if you have AU$500 to blow on an iPod speaker system, this model is a strong contender for your money.
Pros: Expensive, S-Video slot is recessed, No alarm to go with the clock
Cons: Sleekl design, AM/FM tuner and clock, Plenty of inputs and outputs, Decent bass and clarity for a compact system
