iLuv i199 and XtremeMac Luna

 

These two multifaceted music machines will help you get the most from your iPod.

Small footprint. Nice design. Great controls.

No radio-station autoscan. Infrared remote requires line of sight.

The i199 is a great solution as a mini stereo for an office, bedroom, small living room, or kitchen. If you're just looking for a way to wake up to your iPod music, you can't go wrong with the Luna.

iLuv i199 Stereo System for iPod

 

It's not that the iLuv i199 iPod Speaker System doesn't work, it simply tries to do too much. The result is a frustrating user experience exacerbated by a clunky remote and unintuitive controls. Sure, it has two programmable alarms that can use your...

Decent audio quality. CD player (for data CDs, too). USB player. Alarm clock works with iPod. Internal memory stores 32 tracks.

Controls are not intuitive. Covered in stickers. Remote is lousy.

Simply put, the iLuv tries to do too much and fails. It's not that this iPod speaker dock sounds awful or doesn't work. What really ails the iLuv is that it can be a royal pain to operate. It may be feature-loaded, but there are several simpler, better...

This iPod speaker dock also lets you stream tunes from your phone via Bluetooth and plays CDs.

Well-rounded, iPod-focused alarm clock includes Bluetooth and other unique features

 

The i199 presents an impressive package-it's a solid tabletop stereo with a great alarm clock, to boot-that's a good value at its price point. For those who have amassed a growing collection of gadgets, it also presents several more opportunities to...

Great sound ; impressive alarm clock functions ; nice overall design ; works well with a wide variety of audio sources ; unique Bluetooth features ; outputs to TV or entertainment center

Enormous footprint has potential to swallow nightstands. No iPod track metadata display

iLuv did a great job with the i199's appearance. Available in glossy black or white, it's sleek and handsome, and will look nice in just about any setting-office, kitchen, bedroom, or dorm room. However at 15.5 wide, 9 inches deep, and 5 inches tall,...

Shiny black surface shows every fingerprint and seems to vacuum dust out of the air; clock gains two minutes a week requiring constant resetting; turning off the alarm requires pushing power switch- power switch broke after one year and the unit no...

Sounds great- almost like a small stereo system. When you can get it to turn on, that is

Lousy surface finish; clock highly inaccurate; unit power switch broke just outside warranty period

ILuv i199 (black)

 

I have owned this for a couple of weeks now. Overall, I am pleased with it, but the user interface and controls could use some improvement in design. The display, while easy to read, is just too bright, even at the dimmest of three levels. It can be...

Lots of features. Relatively inexepensive. Good sound quality

Display is too bright, even at dimmest level. No standard headphone jack. No ability to add an external FM antenna

After looking for a long time to find a radio with features like the ILuv i199, I still feel like someone who has gone out on a date and spent all this money and still came up short... just a peck NO ROMANCE! I really wanted to like the i199 and I...

Awsome!!!

 

I absolutely love my iLuv!! I fall asleep to it at night and wake up to it in the morning! It's so easy to use for anyone! The only negative thing is that it's a little difficult to open the spot where you insert your iPod...but other than that this...

Product Specifications

What it brings to you is clear quality sound using jAura acoustic speaker technology playing music from your iPod, CDs, MP3 CDs, USB or AM/FM radio. What you bring is music from an audio device, computer, mobile phone, etc. designed with Bluetooth wireless technology and, thanks to the BluePin wireless audio transmitter/receiver that too can be played through the system. In return, you can listen to music in your room wirelessly on headphones or speakers equipped with Bluetooth wireless technology. It's give-and-take. Your music can put you to sleep or wake you up and you can always know the song title and artist on an MP3 track if it has an ID3 tag. With the AV output, you can even send video content from your iPod to a TV. This system gives you a lot, and you can give a little something in return.
