Griffin ships Amplifi, Journi speaker systems


Griffin Technology is now shipping its two new iPod speaker systems—the Amplifi and Journi. The Amplifi ($150; iLounge Rating: A-) is an all-in-one 2.1 sound system with wood-based construction and acoustically tuned enclosure. It features a built-in iPod dock, 3.5mm (1/8”) input jack, and slim IR remote. Griffin’s Journi ($130; iLounge Rating: B+) is a portable speaker system featuring a protective Wrapstand exterior that flips open to create a stand. The Journi has an adjustable docking bay, wireless remote, and internal Lithium-Ion batteries that can be recharged with the included AC adapter or through a powered USB port.

I have had trouble with Griffin. Ordered the Journi on the first day it was posted. It was already backordered on day one. A week later I called and was told 10 more days. Three weeks later I was told it would be the end of the month, “less than a week.” When I pressed the customer service rep, she put me on hold and said it would actually be “2- 2.5 weeks” before it shipped. She seemed surprised that I was displeased with the differing responses and timetables. “It happens all the time” she stated, which I suggested was not good business. My feeling is that if you dont have it, dont sell it. They now are stating on the website it is backordered…alas, too little and too late for anyone that ordered on day one.

Their shipping dates seem very much like Microsoft software shipping dates…none to accurate.
