Certainly the convenience factor is of crucial importance here. While there are numerous docks available for the iPod, with this system the remote is the player itself giving you full control. In terms of range I found it worked throughout my house. I left the iPod in the kitchen and the music still played loud and clear in the bedroom. That said I don’t live in a mansion, so if you are ‘To the Manor Born’ you may encounter range limitations.
In that case you might want to buy additional receivers for other stereos. While this is possible you might not be satisfied with that solution as yYou can only have one transmitter and receiver connected at one time and you have to manually pair them each time which is a bit clunky.
So while it’s no repalcement for a true multi-room solution it is still very satisfying to be able to control the music in the next room from your iPod. Imagine a set of speakers in the garden at a barbacue and being able to control the music from anywhere.
The only other issue I have is the price, which is just over £65 on Amazon but that compares well with something like the Kensington Stereo Dock and Remote for the iPod, available at the Apple online store.
A good product then but I do think Logitech needs to come up with a more elegant design for the transmitter so that it doesn’t flop embarrassingly from the top of an iPod.
The Logitech Wireless Music System for iPod/mp3 works very well. Sound quality is almost as good as a wired connection and delivers clear interference free music throughout the house. It’s a shame that it doesn’t attach firmly to the top of an iPod but its performance means it just about justifies its price tag.
