Excellent sound. Powerful output. Easy setup and operation.

Remote could be more full-featured. Volume control could be finer. Limited support for iPod nano.

This speaker system boasts excellent, powerful sound and handles more than just iPods.

Klipsch iFi

 

Maxed-out 2.1-speaker system for the iPod ; a pair of two-way satellite speakers; 8-inch, 200-watt powered subwoofer; cute remote; iPod docking/charging station; two line-level inputs.

Larger size and more cables than competing iPod speaker systems.

The great-sounding Klipsch iFi is the 800-pound gorilla of iPod speakers.

Klipsch iFi iPod Speaker System

 

Engineered to maximize the Apple iPod and iPod Mini listening experience, the Klipsch iFi system is a plug and play setup that fits almost anywhere and in any type of environment. This 2.1 configuration comes equipped with two unobtrusive and amazing...

The only thing we like to see is the ability to hook up the control dock to the PC so we can sync the iPod to the computer. That would make the iFi near perfect. The other thing we like to see is a lower price. Don't get us wrong, we feel the iFi is...

The Klipsch iFi iPod music system it's the best iPod speaker system we have ever heard. It is also the most expensive iPod speaker system we have ever heard. Does the sound quality justify the $400 price?

Expensive

Wrap up in a warm blanket of iPod-produced noise

Excellent sound, solid construction, intuitive design, RF remote control.

Subwoofer and satellites are huge, the LED could be clearer.

iPod-based home speaker system

 

The first iPod-specific home speaker system provides full, rich sound and convenient features for $400.

Best sound of any iPod-specific speaker system we've tested, including excellent bass and midrange ; convenient iPod Control Dock ; RF remote ; exceptional satellite build quality

Dock base doesn't sync iPod ; poor remote layout ; treble slightly recessed

As a result of all these "firsts," the iFi has received a good amount of attention, and been the object of much speculation, since its announcement in January of this year. Does it live up to the hype (and the price)? We got one of the first units off...

"Great sound quality, better than smaller docks"

 

If all you care about is how your ipod sounds then this is the best system out there. The other docks come in a small package and typically cannot handle songs with bass. With the separate subwoofer this system definitely will. Also the RF remote is a...

Sound quality, RF remote

a little large and some wires

"Can't find a better iPod docking Speaker System"

 

I love this. It's the only speaker system that I need. I use it for my computer, my ipod, my radio/cassette/CD player, and everything. It has audiophile sound quality. Nothing can compare to it. And the sub is so powerful. 180 watts of power for an 8"...

Powerful bass, rich sound, incomparible sound quality, impossibly loud, widely compatible

no output port (not that other speaker sys. have it)

Product Specifications

In tune with the way people enjoy their favorite music today, Klipsch designed the iFi system to make the popular Apple iPod experience sound better than ever. This "plug and play" setup, made exclusively for iPod fans, works with all dockable iPods, including the iPod Mini and iPod photo. Whether it's used in a bedroom or as the primary home audio system, listeners will experience their digital music library in audiophile-quality Klipsch sound. This 2.1 configuration comes with two unobtrusive Klipsch Reference Series RSX-3 satellites, a dedicated subwoofer, docking station and radio frequency remote. Each self-standing or wall-mountable RSX-3 is a two-way, magnetically shielded speaker that employs a 3.5-inch aluminum woofer and a 0.75-inch titanium dome compression driver coupled to an exclusive round MicroTractrix Horn. The 8-inch subwoofer, designed specifically for this system, has a built-in Class D amplifier that distributes 200 watts of peak system power to successfully drive all the channels. It also features a slot port and line level input. A unique tuning approach is used to achieve a sound character typically found in much larger subwoofer boxes. The radio frequency remote can send signals through walls and floors and up to six remotes can be used to control the iFi and a docked iPod from virtually anywhere in the home.
