iPod Hi Fi
I was in the Annapolis Apple Store today picking up a Mighty Mouse, and decided to play around with the iPod Hi Fi.
First one had a blown out speaker.
Second one the volume control wouldn't work.
Guess I won't be buying one of those.
Oh, and thet have them screwed down to the table so you can't lift them (didn't use mormal cable alarms like on iPods).

I was under the impression that this would have built in circuitry to prevent blowing of speakers.. unless someone poked a hole in one of them, or something else non cool like that.
It is a shame, but for the price, I cannot justify one of them anyway. That is especially true when I can buy Klipsch powered speakers for much cheaper, and I assume that they will sound just as good.

On the contrary, I was in the Apple Store Beverly Center and they had a HiFi on display w/ an iPod docked and it was blasting music that filled every nook and cranny of the store and sounded amazing wherever I stood. wow.
I say Bose has a run for its money.

I was at a local Apple Store and I thought that it was very nice. If I didn't have my BOSE SD I would most likely purchase the "Hi-Fi". The store I was at had the Hi-Fi loose so I got to lift up the thing. IMHO I think it's heavy but not heavy enough to restrict it's portability.

I still don't see the point of this thing.
Right now I am using an Onkyo dock to connect the iPod to my Onkyo stereo (I forgot which model it is, but it is one of those small shelf units).
I have full iPod contol with a remote, the sound is excellent, the system has separate speakers for a real stereo base, it also plays CDs and radio - and, guess what - it cost me almost the same (give or take $50) as the iPod HiFi would have cost me. Plus, the speakers are upgradeable!
There is no way I would buy the iPod HiFi.
A favorite feature of mine on my system is the motorized analog volume control... So 80's...
