Here's Where To Stick Your iPod
Continuing our mission to find some good-sounding, small loudspeakers, we wandered on over to the Margules Audio room, where I spotted some cute, little guys hanging out in the corner. Unfortunately, they weren't hooked up to anything that actually plays music. Only the larger speakers were prepared to rock, and after my time with the Piazettas, I really wasn't interested.
However, our attention was immediately taken by an intriguing new piece, Margules' prototype i-Fi, "an iPod high-end interface," which is scheduled to be available in about six months and will retail for somewhere between $600 and $900.
The thing seemed simple enough: you stick your iPod in there and let it play.
