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 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...

Too bad it is Discontinued


Griffin. Bring this thing back. I try to recommend it to other people but they can never find it.

This thing is amazing. I got it off craigslist used for a great price. You cannot find them retail anywhere because they are discontinued. I hope Griffin brings them back. The style is great. The sound is amazing. The sub is great for a little unit....

May be its big compared to some ipod docks. Its all in what you need. If you carry it around from room to room sometimes (i do for garage or treadmill etc..) then its perfect. If your looking for a battery oporated one just for the beach or carrying...

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 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 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

stopped working


It only cost $74 as a Xmas I learned not to buy Griffen lesson.

great while it lasted...was an Xmas gift for the wife.

lasted 4 months and simply stopped working. Over Newegg's 30-day return. Called manufacturer and got someone incapable of speaking English. How can you correct an issue if you can't talk with the person? I will try online, but I didn't see an Email...
