So I was at the Apple Store today and saw one of these things. I thing they look nice...

It had a nice new iPod sticking out the top. So I thought I would play something on it so I could hear this amazing audiophile quality...

Then I start only hearing stuff out of the left side. On either the dock or the HiFi, the right side connection was bad, and unless I held it in the right position, I got nothing...

It was an orgasmic experience... I really wanted to trash my home stereo system for this great mono boombox (except it wasn't even mono).

But seriously, at least the left side sounded nice... I'd still love to hear it for real.

Don't quit your day job. :rolleyes:

And MacWorld said that at $349, it would be great for college students. HA! Like they (we) have that much money lying around to drop on a one-trick pony. For that much, you could get a nice 5.1 system to hook up to your TV, computer, and/or game consoles.

They should put some of that speaker quality (emphasis) into their old and ugly stock headphones you get with the iPod.

Update those nasty things. I use the in-ear ones. I get earwax on them, but what else holds them in?

Better off getting Monitor Audio's dock. Speak nice to a hi-fi store, they'll get you money off.

I heard the iPod hi-fi on Wednesday, I wasn't too pleased with it. It was better than Bose (usually are), but the margin between the MA's and Apple was even bigger.

Thats exactly what I was thinking!!! :D This thing would never replace my home stereo, but I would definitely put one in my office! ( if I like the sound quality )

For the price of the iPod HiFi you could get an even better set of speakers. Frankly I think it's overpriced.

And, the fact that you CAN hook it up to your video games/computer/tv if you really wanted.

But what is at about that Apple logo that makes me question wether or not I should get something while subtly pushing rationality aside?

It's completely over-priced. Not impressed at all. And surely having the ipod sticking out the top of it is an accident waiting to happen?

It is was lighter, better designed and slightly cheaper then I would consider it.

Agreed completely...I went into the Apple Store yesterday to check out the HiFi. It sounds great. I don't know if its the best I've heard out of something like that, but it sounds great. What it doesn't sound like is justification for me to spend $350! I think it's a bit pricey, imho. College students, eh? Yeah I'm *still* a college student and won't spend that much on a "one-trick pony," as you said...
