Product Description

Amazon.com

Designed to fit easily on a desktop or bookshelf, the Griffin Amplifi 2.1 is a full-spectrum sound system perfect for any room in your home or office. The Amplifi delivers room-filling sound through its wood construction, two high/midrange speakers for clear highs, and woofer/bass port for deep, expansive bass. The device is designed to easily accommodate all current iPod models, and also features a standard mini jack for connecting other audio devices.

The Griffin Amplifi 2.1 Sound System for iPod provides you with room-filling sound from the convenience of your desktop.

Attractive and Functional
The Amplifi's simple, contemporary styling is a match for any environment, and with its compact footprint it's an easy fit. The acoustically tuned enclosure features an all-wood construction, lending it the warm, rich timbres that only wood-based speaker cabinets can impart. The unit also features the single, iconic knob made famous by the Griffin PowerMate, which allows straightforward volume control, and is illuminated with a soft, clear blue light when the system is powered up.

Under the Hood
Amplifi's two front-firing 2.75-inch neodymium high/midrange drivers and five-inch down-firing woofer produce a clean, powerful sound. A built-in bass reflex port deepens the bass. Enjoy brilliant hi-fi, stereo sound at a reasonable price.

iPods and More
Amplifi is especially iPod-friendly, with a convenient docking slot on top, and 6 iPod adapters/spacers so any iPod model from the mini to the 5G iPod with video will fit securely. Naturally, while an iPod is docked its battery is charged. A standard 1/8" input jack is also included, accommodating iPod Shuffles, MP3 Players, CD Players, Tape Players, or any other audio source you may wish to connect. Amplifi also comes with a slim, 6-function IR remote control. So sit back, relax, or--if you must--work while listening to your favorite tunes.

What's in the Box
Griffin Amplifi 2.1-channel sound system, 6 x iPod docking adapters, AC power adapter, 6-function IR remote control with battery, user's guide and warranty information.

This is part of a three way Comparison, Bose SoundDock vs. Griffin Amplifi vs. Altec Lansing IM600. Please see my reviews for those other products for detailed comparison:

Design and Features:

Griffin Amplifi: Cabinet made of wood, looks like small shoebox. Has two 2.75" drivers front mounted and a bottom mounted 5" woofer with a bass port. Griffin in the worst Bose tradition refuses to disclose many tech statistics on their unit, but my power estimate puts this at about 30-40 watts, not really much different from the Bose SoundDock. (To sound twice as loud needs a 10 times (1000%) increase in wattage, so the Bose advantage of maybe 33% more power should not really give much real world benefit.) Frequency response per mfgr is 50-16,000 kHz which seems a bit unbelievable on the low end, but feasible enough on the higher end. Ipod docks on top and sticks awkwardly out of the unit like a control tower, but fit is snugger than on Sound Dock which makes me feel more reassured.

There is a line-in and not much more. Big blue-lit knob controls on-off and volume. Remote is a copy of the Bose's with the same simple functions. Range and aiming tolerance is inferior to both the Bose and the Altec, but certainly adequate. Annoyingly, the Amplifi only charges an Ipod docked in it when the Amplifi is on; if the Ipod is docked and the Griffin is turned off, no charging. Either Griffin's engineers are idiots, or they decided to save a few pennies in the design.

Sound:

Griffin: Bass is about as good as the SoundDock, maybe lower extension, but roughly the same precision and balance. Griffin is to be commended for not going crazy and letting the big 5" woofer run roughshod over the sound of the Amplifi.

When I stumbled upon the Griffin in my search for a stationary iPod dock for my home, I almost wondered if this was some sort of trick question - the Griffin seemed like such a superior product for the price, surely there must be some catch (i.e. the quality must be awful), although reviews on Amazon and Cnet seemed to indicate otherwise. Well, I recieved this unit about two days ago and there is no catch.

I was very pleased when I received the unit and took it out of the box - it looks very good - sleek, elegant, simple, it fits right in and doesn't look silly like some of the other iPod docks which look like a teenager's boombox or something. I was also pleased with the sound - it sounds pretty damn good, in my opinion. I think the reviewers who complained about the sound quality must be comparing it to far more expensive home theater systems and have unrealistic expectations, this thing sounds about as good as anything you'll find anywhere near this price range. It does get pretty loud (and sounds good loud), but I found the sound quality is also pretty good at lower-mid volume levels as well. I have not compared the sound quality to the Bose Sounddocd (which is twice the price) head to head, but have no reason to as I'm happy with this so it would be silly to pay more.

Now, reasons this product may not be for you - it isn't portable (no batteries and it's too big to put in your suitcase if you're heading out of town).

I agree with the general consensus on the sound quality -- I find it to be fantastic, especially at this price point. But the volume control is criminally bad. The lowest volume setting is far, far too loud for use in a quiet environment (late at night when other family members have gone to bed, for example). Rather than tapering down gradually to quiet, it just goes from moderately loud to mute. More likely than not will be a return -- a pity, as I really like the unit otherwise.

I ordered this speaker for my 80GB iPod Video to use in my office based on specs and appearance. I wanted a simple speaker with excellent sound reproduction and frankly, hated the styling and footprint of the Bose SoundDock. The other options including the highly rated iM7 are all too oddly shaped and light-colored to place in a professional office. The sophisticated styling with the trademark blue lighted dial sets this unit apart from the rest and definitely make it worth getting. It has a smooth black front panel that can match easily with any high end components or just as a stand-alone showpiece. This is more professional appearing than any of the other iPod speaker systems and has a solid feel. It is built with a solid wood enclosure and the acoustics rival the Bose SoundDock (I have to admit the Bose has a very slight edge in pure sound) and easily beats the iPod Hi-Fi with strong bass tones and excellent midrange. It has a wide volume range without any annoying distortions. If you want useless frills and multiple input options, then look at something else because this is as simple as it gets with one plug for the power cord and a single audio input. The box comes with rubber inserts to fit any iPod and the remote works well from 10 feet away. I bought the system on Amazon with free-shipping at $136 (nearly half the price of its rival SoundDock) and after trying it out in my office, I have to say that it far exceeded my expectations. I see that Amazon just lowered the price to $129 and I plan to order another one for home. I don't think Griffin has been very effective marketing this outstanding speaker, which is a shame since I would have been willing to pay as much as $199. This is a quality high-end speaker at a bargain price for an iPod audiophile.
