iLive debuts new iPod sound bar system


iLive has introduced its new iT188B sound bar-style speaker system for iPod. The iT188B features a remote-controlled, motorized iPod Dock, dual built-in subwoofers, auxiliary input, dual A/V inputs, video output, an AM/FM Radio, a built-in clock, and a full-function remote with iPod controls. “We worked very hard to bring the very best quality sound and functionality with this product,” said Bill Fetter, CEO of DPI, Inc. The iLive iT188B will be available in April for $100 at major retailers including Wal-Mart, Sears, and Target.

Oscar, I just got this for xmas and havent opened it yet but on the box it shows the speaker hooked up to a computer, so my guess is yes.  Will let you know if it does not.

You can use the sound bar with any device that you can connect with those red and white connectors that are found on many electronic devices. It also has a video out capability that you can use to hook up your iPod to your TV. The sound quality’s great, but the remote navagation for the iPod Touch is sketchy (e.g. it won’t skip to next song, change playlist, or navagate chapters.) but works on occasion. Overall, tough, it works quite well, and I’m pleased with it.

I have owned two of these… the first gave out at day 75… BTW DPI offers a 90 day warranty… DPI was impossible to work with to get a replacement, the retailer was nice enough to just exchange…. Second one gave out two months later…. no warranty… Nicest looking, best functionality piece of crap I have ever owned….

I have one of these and it works well, but recently I purchased the ipod touch 3rd generation. It will play music through the speakers, but it keeps telling me that the device is not compatible and will not charge. Is there something I need to get to make it charge? Any suggestions?

I have the ILive 3.1 Channel sound bar and experienced an electrical short or fire in the sound bar.  Has anyone experienced a similar problem with this system?
