The only gripe I have about this system is the remote. Aside from being a little flimsy, you cannot control the iPod's menu with it. You can jump forward and backward, pause and play and raise or lower the volume, as well as powering the unit on or off. Still it's not enough to warrant a switch to others systems IMO. You will not find a better compact iPod Speaker system, especially not one which is compatible with a wide range of iPods from newer and older generations. Highly recommended.
~ 3 YEARS LATER: it's rare I get the chance to come back to a review of a product like this years later, but I want to post a couple more comments. First off, the unit is still in top shape. Very solidly built, no problems with speakers blowing out, or cracked parts after years of use (indoor and out). Last summer we used it quite a bit on our patio for lunchtime cookouts, with good success. Loud enough to keep you bathed in music, not loud enough to annoy your neighbors 30 yards away. The one annoyance that has come to bother me a little bit (but not change the rating) is that whenever you turn this thing on and hit play... it powers up, the iPod powers up, and the music starts playing at top volume, requiring you to turn it down right away. It has become habitual with me where i just start powering down the volume on the unit before the music starts. Not sure if this is a problem with my iPod (3G), but I doubt it. Either way if you're still looking at this as an option for a nice-sounding, reliable iPod speaker, it's still worth a look. That says something.
I received my system within 4-5 days of ordering it (not bad for the holiday season...not to mention free shipping). First thing I noted was the look of it; it's very sleek and modern (and goes very well with my black 80gb ipod). The only cosmetic issue (as the result of buying a refurb) was a slight scratch in the cradle that holds the ipod. That meant little to me, as it was covered anyway!
The IGrooveHG is a simple plug-and-play system, and it even has a handle. Both of these characteristics make it quite a bit more portable than the Bose system.
I'm not sure if I chose a bad song for it first off, but I wasn't initially impressed. I thought it sounded "okay", and I couldn't expect much for $100. But then, I switched to another song and actually used the EQ on my ipod (big "duh" on my part for not doing that in the first place). The initial disappointed flew out the window. This thing sounded UNBELIEVABLE!
I played a Mozart piano sonata. It blew me away. Each and every note was crisp and clear. It sounded as though, truly, I was listening to my husband play it on our piano.
I then ran through my catalog of music and played a little bit of everything (ranging from jazz to rock back to rap to country...I truly mean EVERYTHING). After making the appropriate adjustments on the EQ, every song sounded great.
I saw that several complaints of rattling. I didn't have that problem at all; but then again, I'm also not trying to blast out my windows with a shelf system. I played it at a considerably loud volume, and all that rattled was the glassware on my countertop.
I also saw that some people have complained about the remote. When I used it, it worked flawlessly. I do have the most recent 80gb ipod, so I'm not sure if the problems are with older models or just with certain remotes.
I would highly recommend this system to anyone who would like fantastic sound without dropping hundreds more on a Bose system. I was never able to listen to the Klipsch and the Bose next to each other. However, from what I can recall, the Bose did NOT sound hundreds-of-dollars better than the Klipsch.
Set up was a breeze. Fit my 4th gen pod perfectly. The additional connecters for non-pod devices is a big plus!!
Of-course it is limited to the quality of your mp3's. If you have crappy downloaded (Stolen) 128bit files or less. It will obviously sound like crap! You should have nothing less than 192bit. I use apple's loss-less format and they sound great! All my Store bought files from Amazon and iTunes also sound great!
The only thing I am not entirely happy with is the remote. It has an odd tapered shape that is awkward to use and it is dropped a lot.
I have noticed that the price has increased substantially since I have purchased mine. I would not pay over 150 for this. Just shows you gotta pull the trigger when the price is right. If it gets below 100 ever again, get it!
