I’ve got the Cube for my PowerBook (3.5mm jack, powered by a USB adapter - also is a 4 port USB hub) and were the sound is a slight improvement over the PB’s speakers its not the greatest quality, nor too loud. For $69.99, you probably could do better…. unless the iCube has seen a drastic re-design..

Cubite vs. iCube

- The speakers have been dramatically improved.
- Volume & Clarity heavily increased due to several amplifier adjustments which are also responsible for a decrease of distortion in the higher volume ranges.
- The Cubite is USB powered (5V/ 500mA) the iCube is AC powered (12V/ 1000mA) which enables the amplifier to perform better.
- The Treble and Bass have an increased range.

In short, where the Cubite provides a useful USB hub and a user-friendly power supply (USB only), the iCube is designed and made for sound quality. The sound has been ‘dramatically’ improved and can not be compared.

I am not one for the “perched” iPod attachment, but this product does exhibit a well thought-out design. I believe the price point it fair as well. Considering there is soooooo much junk made for the iPod world this product is better than most.

Actually, I reviewed boynq website, and I am impressed. I would like to purchase the Cubite as a gift; where can I do so in the U.S.? Thanks.

The iCube works as a stand alone speaker (12V adapter supplied) for all iPod’s with 30-pin dock connector and it has a line in and line out as well as dock connectivity to the computer via the standard iPod cable.

I bought mine at Target and I love it, especially because of the treble and bass tuning! Good volume an crisp clear. A real bargain. I would advise it to everyone!

Good sound, trebble and bass switches (perfect range in low and high tones), nice design and better price than JBL and Altec Lansic.

I’ve got a “vase” for my ibook, it is great. I wonder if a bit of tweaking of the master volume AND the itunes volume might help with cubite.

Unfortunately can’t find the icube here in canada.
