The Klipsch iGroove HG or Bose Sounddock? I'm torn and need help.

rckman25, I feel your pain...

Just to add a little more to this, Costco (as of 04/28/07) is offering the iGroove HG for $129.99 which is quite a drop in price!

On the other hand... Bose just announced a rare sale for the SoundDock, reducing it by $30 to $269.00! (Offer valid in the US only for and participating authorized dealers. Offer runs April 29, 2007, through June 23, 2007)

If you shop around online, you could buy the Bose without tax or shipping - hint: try PriceGrabber.

Good Luck

Just to add even more to this, Costco (as of 5/12/07) has a $30 off coupon for the $129.99 iGroove. I got it today for $99.99.

I didn't know anything about the coupon before getting to the register ($129.99 is a really good price anyway) but the kind cashier asked me if I had the coupon. I said I didn't know about it, so he just opened his binder and scanned a coupon for me.

Can't beat $99.99.

I got home and set it up right away. What do I think? A little bass heavy, but great to look at and, hey, it's fabulous at this price.

Hey jonofsf,

Was just reading this post as the wife came in with the mail, along with the Costco coupons... why do I always get these late?

Anyway, for a $30 drop in price I'm not too proud. Will definitely be going back first thing next week for a refund/exchange.

Thanks for the heads up!

I just bought this from Costco for $130. I'm going to return it because the remote doesn't work right.

From 4 feet away, I always have to press the buttons on the remote twice. Perhaps, this is why they're so cheap nowadays.
