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.

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.
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.Read more ›
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).Read more ›
