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...

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,...

jWin Docking Station

 

It is a very attractive white color docking station. It is a kind of all-in-one unit. It has a built-in clock which you can set to alarm and then wake up to your favorite music. I have used it for over six months and it worked well during that time...

Good value for price

 

It is a little bulky for iPod users, but it is a good value for money. If you use iPod a lot at home, you can give it a try.

Great Design

ILUV I199 High-fidelity Multimedia Audio System with BluePin for iPod ( Black )

 

This sounds like a perfect product, however in function, there are several serious short comings. First and foremost, this has a very poor bass heavy sound. With no tone control, there's no way to compensate. Second, the radio reception with the...

ILUV I199 High-fidelity Multimedia Audio System with BluePin for iPod ( Black )

 

Cumbersome, slabby, placticky design. USB port secured under a pop-up panel that's hard to open without a pen or coin. Startlingly bad FM reception. Unable to access content on my jump drive; locked up when accessing content on my MP3 player, so that...

ILUV I199 High-fidelity Multimedia Audio System with BluePin for iPod ( Black )

 

I wrote this review for another site but feel it is worth posting here. That being said I would give the iLuv i199 3.5 stars. 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...

ILUV I199 High-fidelity Multimedia Audio System with BluePin for iPod ( Black )

 

I read several reviews of digital tuning alarm clocks at several sites and settled on the Iluv because of the digital tuning, options for the alarms and more reasonable price. After using it for several weeks, I would make the same choice.

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.
