Stereo for the new century
Say goodbye to the bulky expensive stereo and wall of CDs. iPod Hi-Fi puts out such natural, room-filling sound - with clear stereo separation - that youd think you were listening to a multi-speaker setup. But no, its a single, gorgeous unit that can fit almost any bookshelf, tabletop, or entertainment center.
The perfect match for iPod
Any iPod with dock connector plugs easily into the integrated Universal Dock for iPod. With newer iPod models, you can view full-screen album art and even tweak the tone settings on iPod Hi-Fi to get the best sound depending on the room or type of music. Of course, iPod Hi-Fi will charge any docked iPod when its on AC power. On DC power, you can also get a 30-minute quick charge.
Rock the house - anywhere
Put iPod Hi-Fi in a place of honor in your living room. Or pop in six D-cell batteries, grasp the sleek, reinforced handles, and take it with you. Wherever you are, iPod Hi-Fi is ready to play the soundtrack of your life.
Up to 30 feet of control
Control volume and switch between sound sources from up to 30 feet away with the Apple Remote. When listening to your iPod, you can also play/pause and skip forward and back between songs.
A world of possibilities
Connect a second, external music source to the standard 3.5mm analog/digital optical input port. Ideal for your DVD player, gaming console, AirPort Express with AirTunes, even an iPod shuffle or other iPod without a dock connector
iPod Hi-Fi helps you achieve audio enlightenment through:
-Large soundstage: iPod Hi-Fi brings audio tracks to life with convincing, enveloping sound --almost as if the performers are standing in your living room.
-Precise imaging and separation: Close your eyes. With iPod Hi-Fi, you can ?picture? the relative placement of each instrument or voice in space. Every instrument or voice ? even in complex, polyphonic pieces ? sounds clear, discrete, and uncrowded.
-Wide frequency range: iPod Hi-Fi accurately reproduces the lowest cello notes and the highest piccolo notes; the brittle strum of an acoustic guitar and the powerful thump of a driving bass.
-Room-filling power without distortion: iPod Hi-Fi combines power and volume with acoustic clarity to produce clean, clear sound with very little distortion, even at high volume. .
The innovative design of iPod Hi-Fi transforms consumer-grade materials into the ideal enclosure for high-fidelity sound. Listen as your music pours out of a double-walled plastic shell designed for maximum stiffness to prevent vibration and resonance ? two major causes of sonic imperfection. And airtight sealing allows voluminous sound without buzzing and clatter.
The right balance
iPod Hi-Fi features three speaker cones custom designed to provide balanced sound across the frequency range. The result of numerous rigorous acoustic tests, this design delivers room-filling stereo imaging. The two 80 mm wide-range cones are set in dedicated chambers and isolated on the front plate, providing mid and high frequencies that sound vivid and bright. The natural bass of iPod Hi-Fi is generated by a 130 mm woofer. Thanks to the airtight sealing, the low frequencies are enriched inside the enclosure and then directed via tuned tubes through ports in the front.
No need to find a place to hide an unsightly power brick, as iPod Hi-Fi houses all power components internally. Or run iPod Hi-Fi on six D-cell batteries(1). Either way, it plays your music with big, warm sound. In DC mode, custom electronics manage the energy to enhance battery life and sound, even adjusting volume as necessary. And iPod Hi-Fi will charge your iPod from its batteries when the iPod runs low.
