Griffin Amplifi 2.1 Speaker System Review

 

For the last twenty years, I have been a career musician. It hasn't always been pretty, but it has been pretty fun. Part of my job is to acquire and figure out a lot of different types of musical

Right price ; One Button ; Loud and warm

Lacks hi-fi sparkle and clarity ; Little or no features

Okay, overall I’m really impressed with how the Griffin Amplifi delivers. It’s loud and powerful and will fill a room or patio with the full spectrum of sound. Although it occasionally lacks clarity and sparkle, I could just as easily blame the...

Review: Griffin Amplifi 2.1 Sound System for iPod

 

New speaker makers-even when they're established vendors of other types of accessories-now instantly raise our suspicions. It's far too easy these days for a Western company to slap its name on a system already on sale in Taiwan or China, raise the...

An all-in-one speaker system that rivals the audio performance and simplicity of Bose's twice-as-expensive SoundDock, sometimes adding additional bass beyond the SoundDock's capabilities. Includes Infrared remote control, easy-to-use power and volume...

Styling and sound signature skew towards bass-loving men, versus the more gender-neutral, slightly smoother SoundDock, and vocals tend to stand out a little, which some users may or may not like. Very limited rear ports, omitting video-out and data...

Dissapointed with the Amplfi. There's a constant chirping and low frequency hum when the unit is switched on. Also the volume control is very imprecise. You can feel the clicks when you turn the knob but it takes three or four clicks before the volume...

Griffin's Amplifi is a mid-priced iPod speaker system with plenty of volume, is very simple to use and will tuck away on a desktop or table without taking up too much space

Inexpensive, Remote, Strong bass

Needs careful positioning, Feature-light, Bass can be overpowering

Simple to use, inexpensive and enough bass to wake up the neighbours

Griffin Amplifi iPod speaker system review

 

Griffin's latest iPod speaker dock to hit the shelves in the UK is the Griffin Amplifi, a 2.1 speaker system designed to be used indoors. So it is any good? We get listening to find out. Designed for use in your home, the large speaker looks like the...

Sound, design

Lose the remote and your stuffed, takes up some room on the desk

Costing £100 online Griffin's Amplifi is a solid, well-built iPod speaker system that is both simple to use and better still produces a good sound

Griffin Amplifi review

 

A truly outstanding speaker setup for its price, and with the build quality we'd expect of a system twice the price. While the lack of features may put off some, iPod owners who simply want an attractive and powerful set of speakers should seriously...

Price ; Sound quality ; Design and build ; 3.5mm input

Lack of features ; Doesn't charge iPod when powered down

Conclusion For under £100, this is a truly superb little speaker setup. We can guarantee no-one will hold anything against Griffin for charging so little for such a capable piece of kit -- it's less than half the price of the iPod Hi-Fi. You may want...

Griffin Amplifi

 

Griffin offer the Amplifi, a simple and eye-catching speaker system for your iPod. Our Griffin Amplifi review discovers if it can replace the, now defunct, Apple HiFi.

Easy to use, high-quality audio playback, attractive system at a price which competes with more expensive solutions

Lacks a little mid-range sound, lack of USB port for syncing, can only be powered from the mains

The Amplifi is a high-quality music playback system that competes well on music playback with other more expensive systems available. Combine that with the system's pleasing design and eye-catching looks and Griffin has a winner on its hands....

REVIEW: Griffin Amplifi 2.1 Sound System for iPod

 

When it comes to a lot of the iPod speaker docks out there, you are offered sound quality that isn't much better than a set of el cheapo PC speakers. Sure, they may be jazzed up with some glossy white styling, but if the sound output is no better than...

Let’s get one thing perfectly clear. The Grffin Amplifi Sound System is designed for one purpose and one purpose only: to play your iPod-fueled (or other audio source) tunes through a set of aurally-pleasing speakers. It’s not going to output your...

Very nice

 

For the price you can NOT beat this ..blows away anything i have seen or heard for less than a hundred bucks...if you want a bose system but have no where near the money for it ..buy this...it is classy, built well and most important sounds great!!!

Excellent sound, sleek and sharp lookiing, not to big but has a good heavy feel to it. Nice bass

Remote is average and i havent figured out if i can change albums or just scan through songs with it...no biggie though

More Than a year Rolling and still Awesome.

 

For 1/4 the price of the Bose, better bass. Nice design. You seriously can't go wrong with this buy. Stop reading the reviews and buy it! This is like the Sennheiser PX100 but on the ipod docks, best Bang for you Buck you can find. Enjoy!

I have had this Sound Dock more than a year ago. I paid about $120 for it. And Let me say it was worth the 120 dollars, And right now is at 72$! Buy it you won't regret it. If you are still comparing the BOSE to this one, here is the difference between...

The only Con in all this time, is that sometimes when using the remote it will not get the signal if you use it diagonal from the Dock. That's about it
