Summary: The Logitech Pure-Fi Elite stands above the iPod speaker competition with a can't-miss combination of excellent design, great sound, and a low price.
Pros: Sleekly designed iPod speaker system with AM/FM radio; line audio input; composite and S-Video output for displaying photos and videos from compatible iPods; digital clock; excellent LCD display; sounds good, with decent bass and clarity for a speaker system this compact; low price.
Cons: No alarm to go with the clock; S-Video slot is recessed, making it difficult to plug in some S-Video cables; video output doesn't work with sixth-generation video iPods.
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
