The iM7 offers seamless integration with any dock-connecting iPod. One of the best advantages to other iPod speaker systems in its class is that it can run on either batteries (eight D size alkalines) or AC power. So while this is not something you would want to lug around on campus, you can easily carry it around in to another room.

Although specifically designed for the iPod, the IM7’s auxiliary analog stereo mini-jack input lets it work with any audio device. The speaker system consists of two one inch tweeters and two 3 inch midrange drivers. The real power is in the 4 inch side-firing subwoofer on one side and the 4 inch passive radiator on the other. This delivers outstanding bass quality.

The iPod dock intergrated into the system allows you to take advantage of the iPod’s audio line-out rather than the headphone output for better sound. The dock also comes with an adapter for the iPod mini. Other connections include S-Video and composite video outputs for connecting to a TV, as well as a headphone jack.

The iM7 includes a sleek wireless remote control that can be stored in the back of the iM7. It has volume, tone as well as play, fast-forward, and rewind buttons. One thing the remote can not do is control the iPod menu system.

The sound quality of the iM7 is impressive and that is what counts! Cranked up all the way there is minimal distortion. It offers plenty of power and a beefy bass beat thanks to the subwoofer. The total weight of the unit is 11 pounds, but since this is not something you will lug around campus on your shoulder they weight helps reduce vibration noise for better sound quality.
