Engadget has photos of the new Apple iPod Hi-Fi speaker system and has posted some interesting pictures of the unit from all sides, shot in the faux bedroom setup that Apple mocked up for yesterday’s media event.
So how’s the thing feel? Well, let’s be straight up, the Hi-Fi is heavy. Like, way too heavy to want to carry with you to the cabana or the beach, as they described you might despite its alternate six D-cell power source.
According to Apple’s specs the iPod Hi-Fi weighs in at 14.5 pounds (6.6 kg) without batteries and 16.7 pounds (7.6 kg) with batteries.
