Nice well balanced review.
There are several versions of the Smallpod though, passive (without amplification), Smallpod Active (with amps but no bluetooth) and Smallpod Active Bluetooth as reviewed.
I believe Scandyna also have a separate lossless wireless dongle which can be used with the standard Active pack to achieve the desired results as suggested in the review.
I've found them online for the following prices:Passive: £299 / pairActive: £399 / pairBluetooth Active £475 / pair.Wireless Dongle: £127 a set.
Hope this helps !
Thanks SprintAl, I do know about the other SmallPod speakers but obviously we have to review what we have on its individual merit. Lossless can be added by the Scandyna dongle or even AirPlay, but it is adding a lot to an already expensive system.
I believe we'll see upgraded systems and possibly a price cut from Scandyna in 2013, so it is best to hold fire for now.
