Klipsch iFi iPod Speaker System

Now this is a cool iPod setup! The Klipsch iFi iPod Speaker System features 200 watts of peak system power you can rock the house with this baby! This “plug and play” setup, made exclusively for iPod fans, works with all dockable iPods, including the iPod Mini and iPod photo. It uses a radio frequency that can transmit through walls and ceilings allowing you to experience your digital music library in audiophile-quality Klipsch sound.

This 2.1 configuration comes with two 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 what Klipsch deems "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.

As previously stated, 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.

Available in a silver finish, that nicely complements Apple hardware, the stylish iFi also allows the iPod to charge as it plays so listeners can enjoy their favorite songs without interruption.

It retails for $399 and according to their website it should be launched in Spring 2005, which is pretty much now.
