Too much for me, but it’s nice that you have line-level volume control AND iPod control in ONE remote.

Four deceptions! First the kit is 4 parts, not uned together, so not portable at all. Segond: It’s not battery operated. The sub is very heavy. Third: The speakers are not protected with, screens except the sub, it can be touched by someone and bumped. Four: Also high priced like all others ipod speakers.

Angelito, Klipsch never deceived anyone.  They never claimed any of your four points.  This is meant as a stationary home system, nothing more.  Knowing Klipsch, I bet it will sound amazing.  All other iPod speakers out today are cool for different reasons but none of them rock.  I hope this one does.

no doubt, when are people going to stop expecting the world out of anything “iPod.”  Yeah,  but can you drop it from 10 stories without scratching it?  Give me a break huh?

Awesome, satellite speakers are a must for true stereo sound. For $400 it will be great to put in a bedroom or reck room. I’d have to say though, the JBL creature II has done excellant by me at only $69.
