Apple launches the iPod Hi-Fi

First 'true high-fidelity sound' ipod accessory

Apple has produced its own portable hi-fi speaker system for its range of iPods.

The electronics giant says the system – which costs GBP 249 – is unlike any other speaker system designed for the iPod and will deliver unrivalled sound and quality.

The iPod Hi-Fi works from both the mains and battery and can be operated by remote. It also automatically recharges the iPod while docked and Apple CEO Steve Jobs said:

‘Apple is reinventing the home stereo with the new iPod Hi-Fi, the first iPod accessory that adds true high-fidelity sound quality to the iPod.

‘The iPod Hi-Fi’s unrivalled acoustic performance and stunning design is at home in any room in the house.’

We’ll be testing the new iPod Hi-Fi in our May issue.

There are already a number of portable speaker systems on the market for MP3 players like the iPod.

We awarded a Best Buy to a GBP 250 system from Bose which our researchers found produced a clean sound that could happily fill a large room. However, the Bose speakers work only with iPods and the system isn’t portable as it needs batteries so you need to be near a mains plug.
