iPod Hi-Fi scores high

Apple's recently-released iPod Hi-Fi speaker system, designed to complement its entire line of iPod digital media players, was dubbed "very impressive" by CNET.co.uk's Crave column, despite widespread disappointment surrounding its introduction. "We've been playing with the iPod Hi-Fi for a day now, and considering the price of the unit (249), sound performance is very impressive." Apple "massively overstated" the Hi-Fi's capabilities by describing sound output as "audiophile quality," but it will impress casual listeners, according to the column. An Apple engineer talked about the design of the speaker enclosure and amplifier stage, which led Crave to believe that the system was designed specifically to replace the living-room or bedroom mini-system. "Judging from our cursory tests so far, it may have succeeded."
