Cambridge SoundWorks has introduced its i765 stereo speaker system. The i765 is an all-in-one system, offering an integrated iPod Dock, a built-in DVD/CD player with support for MP3 and WMA files, AM/FM tuner with 16 FM and 8 AM presets, dual alarms, and an integrated LCD text display that automatically adjusts to ambient lighting. 2.1-channel sound comes from two high-performance drivers and a built-in powered subwoofer; other features include composite and S-Video outputs, and a full-featured wireless remote with iPod navigation control. “We drew inspiration for the SoundWorks i765 from our great-sounding Cambridge SoundWorks radios,” said Rob Mainiero, general manager of Cambridge SoundWorks. “Then we added in an integrated iPod dock and a DVD/CD player with video-out capability, creating a compact music system with all the features of a top-of-the line digital entertainment system.” The Soundworks i765 Speaker System is available now and sells for $500.

Cambridge SoundWorks makes some of the finest audio products I’ve ever owned, and I can say, without reservation, that its speakers are top-notch. I haven’t heard their iPod speaker systems, but based on user reviews and all other critical mass, I would expect that the i765 will be an outstanding addition to their product line. I like the slightly more sophisticated approach they’ve taken with this particular model.

I am enormously pleased with my Logitech AudioStation as my bedroom system, but if not for that, I’d snap one of these up in a heartbeat despite the premium pricing. There ain’t much on hifi.com that wouldn’t be worth the money.

This thing looks great. I live in a tiny apt and I’ve been looking for an all-in-1 to hook my ipod and tv to, as well as play dvd’s and have an fm radio. I hope it sounds decent…

Nice unit but I’m surprised there are no video “component outputs”, just s-video and composite.  Most TVs today have these inputs and take advantage of the improved component video signal.  At this price, I’d expect this feature.

I own an earlier version of this unit that doesn’t have the ipod integration, just an aux in.  When I first got it, I thought the sound quality was amazing for such a small (tabletop) device.  Within a week or so, though, I wasn’t terribly impressed.  Since then, I have purchased and used the InMotion IM7, the Apple Hi-Fi, and the Logitech Pure-Fi Elite; I never even turn on the Cambridge unit.  It just doesn’t sound as good as these other systems.  Maybe this new one will sound better, but I think you’re better off buying a $130 Logitech Pure-Fi Elite.
