Tivoli Audio has introduced the new iYiYi home speaker system. Available in black or white, the iYiYi features a built-in universal docking station for use with all dockable iPods, as well as a digital AM/FM radio, built-in alarm and digital clock. The system also sports two 3” full-range drivers, a remote control, auto-brightness blue backlit LCD display, rubberized knobs, Radio Data System (RDS) support, an auxiliary input, and stereo headphone output. Tivoli said the iYiYi—which apparently gets its name from the Yiddish phrase contextually translated as “what will they think of next?”—will be available this Fall for $300.

Looks like a great system to me. I haven’t heard it yet, but Tivoli has a great repuatation for excellence all around. Seems like the more pricey an accessory is, the more critical some are of it. Personally, I would rather pay more and get quality. No one HAS to buy this…If you don’t like it, simply move on to something less expensive.

It was I who said I liked the sound of the Bose.  I’m not “stupid as hell”, I just like the sound of Bose in general.  I’m entitled to my preferences and so are you.  Let’s try and keep the personal insults to a minimum and have an intelligent discussion here.  Having a preference doesn’t make anyone stupid.

I *LOVE* how it looks!  It is strange.  The name reminds me of “Yi Yi.” In Mandarin Chinese Yi Yi means literally one one, but is a phrase
to say “a one, and a two….” like you are about to sing or play a song.  So I like the name iYiYi *lol*  smile

This “thing” seems to address the half functioning remotes that Tivoli has in their other products. At least you can change between sources and power on and off with the remote.  Wish it looked better though.  I dont want to replace my Model Three with this thing.
