Klipsch IFi: The Cradle Will Rock
Klipsch seems to have dipped into its well-stocked multimedia catalogue for some modules that it could add a few components to and came up with a 2.1 set for the iPod. So there's nothing very surprising about the iFi, with its two satellites, subwoofer and control unit that includes a docking cradle for the iPod. Obviously a remote control has been added, and its an RF one, which means that you don't have to point it directly at the receiver the way you do with an infrared remote, making the unit easier to use. The aesthetics are modern, if a little tortured, as is the vogue at Klipsch, with a silvery colour that's far from the white that Apple's products use.
The satellites use Klipsch's usual techniques and are very similar to the ones used by the maker's other systems. They're mounted on a base with a swivel joint and screw holes for wall mounting, and have grilles with magnetic fasteners. You can use them with or without the grilles as aesthetics dictate.
