"Go and Listen to the Hi-fi!!!!"4.5 starson by whiskeydesign
Pros: The Sound is rich, full, and amazingly loud! Quality craftmanship, you can feel and hear, and sleek design.
Cons: Does not come with optical or anolog cables, no travel bag or strap, and does not have airport express built-in.
Summary: At my local Apple store I was able to drown out the stores music, crowd noise, and still clearly make out the ColdPlay song, I'm not the biggest coldplay fan but it made me want to purchase one. As I waited in the casher line at the Apple Store, many stood listening to the Hi-Fi, some others went about the many ipod cases and accessories, most where being assisted by the employee's. Then they lined behind me, as employees were quickly going to the back and coming out with multiple box's of Hi-Fi's which were placed behind the register with the peoples other Apple gadgets.
In the quiet confines of my Home the Hi-Fi produces amazing sound quality. I own high end loudspeakers and amp of significant weight, power, and better sound quality then the Hi-Fi but they are not very practical. They don't work in my bedroom, home office, kitchen... (better half would kill me if they were in either rooms). The Hi-Fi is the best at what it is, an all in one quality speaker system for the ipod.
Since I'm listening to the Hi-fi I want one more for the house and attach both of them to airport expresses so I can go bedroom to office and enjoy music, but still have the ability to through my ipod on one and just listen to what I feel like .
A helpful review I have found so far was http://www.ilounge.com/index.php/reviews/comments/ipod-hi-fi-high-fidelity-speaker-system-for-ipod/
Go and check the hi-fi out first hand, I have a feeling you will dig them as much a I do.
