Ignitek announces three iPod speaker systems

imageIgnitek has announced three new iPod speaker systems that are set to be released next month.

The first, called iCarrier, is a 3-way, floor-standing speaker system with a powered woofer and variable bass control. The top docking mechanism will accommodate both the iPod and iPod mini, and the unit will ship with a remote control. Ignitek said it will retail for $249.99.

The second speaker system is the iCruiser. Like many other iPod desktop systems, it is an all-in-one unit that features an iPod cradle in the center with two flanking speakers. The iCruiser ships with a remote control and audio-in for other music players. The iCruiser will sell for $129.99.

The iDeck, the third system offered from Ignitek, is built specifically for the iPod shuffle. It is a 2-Way speaker system in a compact, portable design. The battery-powered system works with an optional car charger. The iDeck is priced at $79.99.

From page 43, fourth paragraph, User’s Guide: “To get the optimal stereo imaging and depth, please plant da tip of yer nose approximately 3.47” from the front of the iCarrier.  Also note that there may be some variation due to the size discrepancies of a listener’s honker…” (really…I’m SURE I did read that in there…)

The iCarrier: nominated for the 2005 Incredibly Idiotic Electronics To Waste One’s Money On, Lifetime Achievement Award, At Least For This Week.

Yay, a loud column…
You know, in the 90s there was this system called “Space Fidelity” by Grundig. Basically a column with a subwoofer &  a horizontal soundtube in the back, you could place it anywhere and it would still fill the room with stereo sound. Excellent. This is so long ago that they came with a tapedeck…
But: The key issue here is: STEREO. Me like STEREO! So the way the speakers are set up on this thing one has to hope that they put in a veeeery fancy virtual surround function.

All I have to say is finally a floor standing model for the iPod products.  There are too many desktop versions out there now.  I think it is an excellent idea but the key question is about the BASS potential.  It looks powerfull and the price is right!  I look forward to buying one.
