    well Im buy the 10gig iPod (there goes $500) but I have a question about speakers. I would like to own a set of portable speakers. I would like something under $100. Right now I and looking at the new version of the Apple Pro Speakers which run on a Mini-Stereo plug (I would have to buy a adapter) But in the description it says that the new G4 theyre desinged for has a built in Amplifier. So my question is does any one know if the music would be quiet because of this. Thanks for ur help.

    The Answer

    The problem is toshiba (the supplier of the iPod HD and the Firefly HD) charges like $200 (guess) for it so its hard to make a price drop w/ out toshiba making one. Now can someone reply to my question?

    I didnt mean to offend with that my son thing...just another of my pathetic attempts at humor.

    I made a video in FCP for my video class today, and my roomates and I thought it was hilarious. So it came my time to show the video, and the class was absolutely silent...not even a snicker. I felt like a real douchebag. Just like this here. Oh well. This is just not my day.

    Well junior,... chief,... tiger,.... bigguy,... boss,.... shooter.... :D

    I recently bought some portable speakers for my iPod, not the Apple Pro Speakers, but these cheap foldable ones from Urban Outfitter's website. Not having them amplified makes a BIG difference. Even with the volume turned up all the way, I still can't get a strong sound unless I put the speakers right next to my ears.

    If you go with a portable speaker solution, make sure it's amplified!

    iPod Speakers

    I'm not sure if they exist outside Boston area, but Cambridge Soundworks (.com, probably) make some pretty amazing speakers for home & desktop at really good prices. I don't have a pair for my iPod but I have an $85 set consisting of a pair of lil' guys and a subwoofer for my mac that sounds as good as a much higher end home system (IMHO).

    Good luck... I'm still in the honeymoon phase with my iPod. Ahh...

    Gents,
    Cambridge soundworks is a major manufacturer of speakers. They are in league with SoundBlaster, are they not?
