  1. Just used mine tonight to project carols in a freezing cold park on battery power. The iPod sound was fine, but the microphone input was a little low.

    I hope they put HMDI video output in it to connect your video iPod to a large screen with excellent sound.

  2. I went for Acoustic energy Aegos. 2.1. Half the price, twice the sound. Ok, there’s no dock, but I use them with a 1st gen iPod and a Macbook. Or at least I did until I figured they were good enough to replace the hi-fi amp and speakers that were hooked up to my PowerMac.
