    Great but not perfect

    Posted .

    The speakers I bought for Christmas were a really good purchase because they sound amazing and they are tiny and a remote control, if you look for things like that in speakers they are the speakers for you but the video output does not transmit any video at all because they are not compatible with the ipod touch wasn't specified in the box nor in the instruction booklet, I wanted to see movies & pictures on my monitor and you cant, so I spent the money and no video projection.

    Solid performer, very good sound, excellent value!

    Posted .

    Here's how I look at it. I have had several iPod docking speaker units in the past. And eventually through wear and tear or for whatever reason, they will one day not work. The primary culprit is the dock connector will come loose and render the unit useless. For what it would cost to repair it, you might as well buy a new one. My beloved JBL Radial went to the electronic graveyard after 4 years. The reason being a loose dock connector. I miss the JBL for the wonderful sound it produced. I also miss the $300 I paid for it. Keep in mind, I don't beat on these units. I take care of my stuff. But inserting and removing the iPod often, some times on a daily basis, will take its toll on a docking speaker unit. So...for me, I look for quality sound at a reasonable price. Now that Best Buy put the Klipsch iGroove SXT on sale for $119, I had to grab it. The iGroove is small and conservatively stylish. But don't let it's size fool you. This unit delivers a nice, accurate, balanced sound. It can fill a room with sound without being overbearing or screeching. I see others have compared it to the Bose unit but they are both two different animals. The Bose has a warmer, thick smooth sound while the iGroove has a brighter, crisp detailed sound. If they were wines, the Bose would be a Chardonnay and the iGroove would be a Pinot Grigio. I am not saying the iGroove has not bottom end. There is a bass presence but it's not in your face. It's there and it sounds natural. But you will hear a more nuance sound. On a live recording, I can hear someone in the audience sneeze where in my JBL Radial it was never there. That's how detailed the iGroove. In short, this unit more thans meets the more expensive units. I use my iGroove for background music, for private listening and it handles all types of music...jazz, folk (actually real good for acoustic music), classical and rock. At high volumes, it does show some disortion but you won't be screaming to talk to someone. It's not a wimp, but it is not made to be a boom box. Instead, it is made to be listen to for the beauty of its sound. The iGroove was designed to provide a rich listening experience and it succeeds on that level and without the $300 price. As many others noted, the remote didn't work out of the box. I did buy a new battery for it and it works beautifully now up to a distance of 15 feet. To be fair, I was torn between the iGroove and Logitech's S715i rechargeable speakers but the Logitech's styling just looked uninspiring and cheap looking. I was impressed with Logitech's soundstage and it does have a rechargeable battery...but the iGroove looks won me over. I found no compatibility problems with my iPod Classic (160gb) nor with my 3g iPhone. The box says it is compatible with the iPod touch 2g. It does come with 5 dock inserts although you can dock your iPod without an insert...but that can hasten any loose dock connecting problems down the road. I use the iPod Classic insert so when that day comes when the iGroove loses its groove, it will be $119 well invested instead of $300 down the drain. But I have a hunch that day is far, far down the road.

    Great Bang for the BUCK!!!

    Posted .

    I have read many great (and some sour) reviews of this product. I would like to tread the middle ground here. This dock is not meant to fill your house with rumbling bass or replace your current home theater. This is a very simple system best used in a bedroom, office, hotel or dorm. It is not over loaded with gimmicks or extras you don't need. What this little guy does is excede what you expect from it. I purchased mine while on vacation. I was staying in a hotel and needed a dock so I could listen to music to help me sleep. I considered getting the BOSE but they had sold out. LUCKY ME! I auditioned the system while at Best Buy and thought it sounded nice but once in a more controlled (quiet) environment I was truly pleased with what this system has to offer. It has a nice balanced sound, is VERY easy to use and made a great alarm clock using my iphone. Not to mention it was a great way to charge my phone while keeping it close to me while I slept. While I feel you can make a comparison to the BOSE iDock. For the the PRICE I would say the iGroove BETTER. Coming close to the higher priced docks (in sound quality) but not quite there. Going strictly by sound quality there are a lot of products that sound better. Bose, B&W etc.. But there is NO competition in it's price range. (i paid $150) A side note: This system has a 3.5mm input so it makes a great companion for laptops! Worked very well for movies on my laptop, which has weak speakers. Combine that with compact size and it makes an excellent and easy travel entertainment system! Also the iGroove has a nice solid feel to it, unlike many docks at or around it's price range. While this little Klipsch system might not change you life. For the price it may enhance it! This is a great product for a fantastic price!!!!!!

    THIS THING KICKS A$&!

    Posted .

    I have read some of these reviews about "the bass is not that impressive" or "the sound is ok". Let me tell you something, this thing absolutely rocks! Consider the fact that you are dealing with something so very small, and the drivers are extremely compact, I have not heard ANYTHING that compares to this for the money. I am an avid audiophile and have bought more than $200,000 worth of audio equipment in my lifetime, and I was so impressed with this that I had to write a review. I am thoroughly impressed with the bass response as well as the highs. My mouth fell open when I listened to it in my office. It sounded good in the store, but the store is so huge, you lose a ton of the response. Get this thing in a normal sized room, and it rocks! I have had many, many Klipsch products and this one is no different. They have superior products that hold up over time. This was the best sounding unit that was at the store- including the overpriced BOSE. I laugh at people who pay BOSE prices because they "hear" it is the best. Get a clue and buy this thing!

    Great...except the remote

    Posted .

    Ok, So I have had other iPod docks and they were just mediocre. I got the Klipsch on-sale at a price I could not resist, but would have no problem paying 150 for them. Having other Klipsch products, I knew that the company was capable of making an outstanding product. This dock took longer to get out of the box than it did to hook up. I ran an aux. cable out the back input to my laptop and use it for listening to music off the laptop as well as sound for movies, tv shows, etc. The lows on these speakers are incredible, as well as the highs and over-all sound quality (Crisp, detailed, textured, and emotion). With that said, they can blast music extremely loud without distortion and it sounds as good cranked up all the way as it does at 10%. I had doubted it's power at first, having gone from a Klipsch 2.1 system to a single unit, but they perform as well as the bigger 2.1 system. When it comes to the product construction, it is definitely built to last and withstand a little abuse (they were in a backpack in the bed of a truck rolling around for an hour or so). For the remote, it stopped working about 6 months into ownership. You can buy a new one off the manufacturers website for under fifteen bucks. At the end of the day, these knock all the other brands out of the race, yes even B**e which costs 2x as much (previously owned a dock). Hope this helps. Save some money and get these, not the other, high priced, brand!

    Good, but not great

    Posted .

    This little speaker struggles mightily to be a superb performer, and the only thing keeping it from reaching that goal completely is its size. It is just not possible to get really big, accurate sound down in the lower registers from a box of this size (it is very small). Otherwise, the clarity and range of this speaker is outstanding. If you are not a fan of really powerful bass, and just need something that sounds really good at moderate sound levels, this speaker should be adequate for you. It plays loud and has very good presence, but the louder it's played, the more evident its lower range deficiency becomes. I was able to audition it side-by-side with an original Bose Wave Radio and the Bose Sound Dock II, and only then did it sound slightly inferior. Sitting on the desk in my home office playing at background levels, it performed masterfully!

    Klipsch fan always

    I have had different products from klipsch ranging from cpu sound systems, sourround sound for tv, even large performance monitors and they ALWAYS deliver! This little sounds systems packs a punch with good highs, mids and rich full bass to round out the sound. It is also durable for taking on trips or allowing your kids to use (even when you know they are the most careful when handling).

    Excellent sound system for the cost

    Posted .

    Purchased this item b/c we needed some music to play at my grandmother's birthday bash..however, we needed the quality to be loud and clear enough to cover a large size clubhouse....well this system did just that, actually one of the attendees thought the music was coming from the speakers in the clubhouse. Hearing that justifies this item and purchase. One note - had to exchange it as the remote control failed within one week after usage. Best Buy was great with the exchange, hassle free and stated if additional problems please return and let us know.

    Best sound for the money

    Posted .

    I purchased this for my wife to use in the kitchen. She initially didn't get any sound from her new iPod Touch (3rd gen). Klipsh customer service said it wasn't compatible with her new iPod because the pin count was different. When she told me that, I looked at the specs again online and didn't believe it. I unpacked it, pushed it in, and it worked fine. The sound quality is really excellent for the size. Price is good for the quality/sound. Only remote features are power, volume up/down, mute, and track forward/back. Since we just play it on random or on a playlist, the lack of features is minor to us. Others commented on the somewhat unstable feeling when you push the iPod into the base, and this is true. However, it still works fine, so it doesn't bother us. Overall, I couldn't find another product with comparable sound for the price. Bose and Polk make nice ones with more features, but they're at least double the price. We definitely recommend it.

    Comparable to Bose

    Posted .

    It's far more compact than the Bose series II, but sounds just as good. It's incredibly powerful for such a little dock. You could put it in an auditorium and still hear it just fine. Bose docks are of course louder than the igroove, but you can get Bose sound quality without breaking the bank. You don't get that crunchy effect when you pump up the volume, either. The sound is smooth and clear. Very pleasant to listen to.

    The BEST Speakers

    Posted .

    When I first bought the Klipsch iGroove SXT, I admit I was having doubts. I thought it wasn't going to be durable, etc...now, six months later, it still sounds as great as it did the first day I bought it. and, being experienced in sound quality, I can tell you right now that it is of the same quality, if not even better, than a pair of Bose speakers. And, despite its rather small size, its music travels far and is loud. The music it makes can fill a whole room. Its price is just unbelievable, and I would urge you to buy it before it becomes of a higher price. Its sound delivers extreme clarity and a very powerful, ear-splitting (in a good way# bass sound. Its remote is also very convenient and durable, but I would recommend to also get an extra set of batteries when you buy it in case. And, for the music blasters out there, its sound does not become distorted after you listen to it loud. Trust me, I do that and it sounds fine. These speakers are by far the best I have ever owned. Did you know that most movie theaters use Klipsch speakers for movies? The Klipsch speakers are also easy to carry with you, they are not heavy, and are easily turned on and off. They have a very wide range of volumes, so you can have it as the volume you like...whatever that volume may be. They also look very appealing, and truly live up to their name: Sexy Tiny #SXT). They are a perfect fit for any room. They are very cool. So don't hesitate, buy them today!

    Good Klipsch sound in a small package!

    Posted .

    I own the Bose SoundDock and the Klipsch iGroove HG for my Apple iPod. These are the 2 premiere iPod speakers out there! Saying that, not many iPod speakers out there come close to the full quality sound of deep bass & clear highs. With the Bose SoundDock you're getting the best but also the most expensive. You basically get what you pay for in the SoundDock! It has the best complete full sound, great bass & highs. And by far the loudest without distortion! Everything you expect from Bose. Next would be the Klipsch iGroove HG. In low to medium sound levels, the bass is rich and the highs are clear. But if you like your music loud on the higher levels, you'll notice the Klipsch iGroove HG starts to distort. To most people out there, music won't be played that high so this won't be too much of a factor. Now Klipsch came out with this iGroove SXT. It's supposed to be the little brother to the iGroove HG. The sound is exactly like the original iGroove HG but in a smaller package. Bass is rich & the highs are clear! The thing I noticed most was it's not as loud as the iGroove HG. This eliminated the distortion on the higher volume levels which is a good thing, but now the sound doesn't fill up the room like it's big brother did very easily. None the less, the sound is very impressive! Also the price is good. For its size & price, no other iPod speaker system sounds as good. But if you want the best, go with the Bose SoundDock or the original Klipsch iGroove HG if you can still find it around.

    Beats JBL, Bose...

    Posted .

    Nice sound and one of the best bass i've ever heard in days, in such a small sized set. Plays ipod the best, better than JBL and Bose. I went into Best Buy wanting to buy JBL Onstage III, but after listening to this beast, I had to ditch the JBL. I bought a stereo jack along with it to connect my Samsung LCD, to which i have PS3 hooked up, and the sound output through this beast is awesome, the built-in subs they just make a whole lotta difference to the quality. The only problem is the remote, its too small, especially for a guy like me with not too small palms, and its too slow sometimes, but not always, and i thought the remote could have had some more functions like switching playlists etc. But all in all a great product and worth it. Gets a FIVER!!!

    Awesome system

    Posted .

    I looked on-line for a really long time to find a good speaker system for the I-pod that I was buying my girlfriend for Valentine's Day. I read all the reviews on many different docks and systems. This one seemed to have great overall ratings so I went with it. Even after all of my research I was skeptical, because it was so small. I have to say that I was extremely impressed with this system. It is very loud and has great sound quality even when it is loud. The only thing that is a flaw at all is that I wish it had an equalizer to adjust the bass and treble. On some songs the bass is too much when it is loud and it sounds a little garbled, but it isn't bad. I would think that it would be hard to find a better dock for the price. I am sure that you could pay a lot more for Bose and get a little better sound. There were a lot of docks in this price range though, and this one definitely exceeded my expectations by far.

    Great Sound

    Posted .

    I purchased this thing yesterday so, as far as life, I'm not sure how it will hold up! What I do know is that this thing can put out some sound. It actually had my wife and I laughing at the amount of sound coming out of such a small unit. Wish it had a radio or something else built in, but I knew it when I bought it! Great product!

    Good system

    Posted .

    This system has wonderful sound quality with brilliant highs and solid lows. A remote control makes it easy to use from across the room and easily allows the user basic playback controls. Have been using mine as an alarm clock with my iPhone docked to charge overnight. Really great product. Only one additional function would make it better . . . the ability to switch between playlists on iPods and iPhone.

    Wow, open box!

    Posted .

    I got this on open box for $89.99 (I love BB OB). I guess the other buyer didn't need it because it wasn't even unpackaged. Let me just say that while this isn't a Bose, it's still up there for sound. It is rich and full sounding, great lows and nice highs. The only downside is that it's really light on bells and whisles. But, it's sleek, works with my iPhone 4 and matches the color of the device perfectly. Like I said, it's sound is really quite something to behold. I'd recommend this even at the $150 price tag.

    Huge sound in a small package

    Posted .

    This speaker system delivers, as other reviewers have commented, truly wide-sounding, bass-rich audio in a really lightweight and portable design. For 20W of power, the system is loud -- it rocks. I mean, really rocks -- for nowhere near the cost of a Bose SoundDock. It's distortion-free even at incredibly high volumes (both MP3 player volume and speaker system volume). The connectivity's great -- aux input for MP3 players, universal iPod dock for most iPod models with a dock connector -- and there are no synchronization issues to speak of. The S-video out lets you watch video from your iPod on a TV with an S-video input, which is cool, since most HDTVs still have the old S-video jack. The play/pause, track forward and track backward remote functions only work when an iPod is synchronized with the dock, which is a downside for non-iPod MP3 player users. But volume up, volume down and mute work just fine. The remote takes a CR2032 lithium battery, which lasts quite a while. The universal adapters that come with this system really are only J-cup supports whose shapes are designed to fit the shape and thickness of the bottom of an iPod, just to let other viewers know. This is good, though, for keeping your iPod in place while it's docked. Overall, this product is fabulous, like every other Klipsch speaker system.
