Portable Sound Laboratories has introduced the iMainGo, a new combination iPod case and portable speaker system. The iMainGo (iLounge Rating: C+) consists of a black, zippered case with iPod pocket and a “state-of-the-art digital amplifier” with “high output stereo speakers.” The $70 case offers built-in air cushions, inserts to fit several iPod models, and has a protective play-through window. The iMainGo requires four AAA batteries, which last up to 30 hours.

two best portable units for protection of ipod -i19 and imaingo-i have both-units are loud and clear-imaingo is about half the size of the i19-both are somewhat $$$. i do not agree with the rating of imaingo-i would rate imaingo similar to the i19-B+. TRY IT, YOU’LL LIKE IT-REMEMBER, SIZE DOES NOT ALWAYS COUNT-DID ANYONE GET A BONUS FOR THE NAMING OF IMAINGO?SOUNDS LIKE A FRUIT.

I have one of these.  The volume can only go about 1/2 way on the iPod without causing distortion, but that’s more than enough for keeping on a desk at work.  I really like the compactness, and the ease of use.  It will make a great travel companion, with the alarm feature.

I have a 1st generation iMaingo for my 2nd generation iPod Nano. The sound is great! I did have to perform one modification to it so that it could accommodate the Nano properly. I had to cut out part of the plastic frame so that the 1/8” plug wouldn’t bump up against it. Before the mod, the screen end of the Nano would be close to the iMaingo window, but the click wheel would be far away from the window which meant I had to press my thumb harder into the window when changing volume, etc. Also, the two halves are not perfectly matched. I bought 3 iMaingo’s as gifts for friends. Each one was different. After zippering up the unit, only one iMaingo could stand on it’s side and not fall over. I guess it meant for holding in one’s hand and not for standing.
