1) bi-amplification and active crossovers and equalisation.
2) tweaked sonics and loudness contour
4) 5V "USB" charging
5) improved TDMA immunity (some brilliant engineers thought it would be a good idea to modulate digital cell phones in the middle of the audio band - actually it improves range and battery life - and most importantly increases bandwidth for the cell phone company - but it stinks for audio circuits)
The first two might be self-explanatory, as for the others...
The original SXT charged via the "Firewire" pin on the iPod. Firewire charging (8-30VDC) was deprecated by Apple and they now only allow "USB" charging (5VDC).
If you connect an iPod that only allows USB charging to a dock that does not support it, the iPod won't charge, and it will give you a message. Apple also made mandatory the "Authentication" to get to put "Made for iPod" and "Works with iPhone" on the box. Since Apple does not release its technical specs before the release of the new iPods these changes were somewhat a (but not a total) surprise (long story).
We had been already working on the "WWi" version (Authentication + 5V charging + TDMA noise lowered to pass the Apple spec) when the new requirements were released last fall, and in order to not have a bunch of new iPod owners returning SXT's by the truckload (that wouldn't charge their new iPod) we decided to delay the "WWi" program, and get an "MFi" version out post haste. The "MFi" version is 98% the same as the "WWi" version.Read more ›
The sound for an item this size is truly magnificent - however this can not be considered as a replacement for a full stereo system.
The remote that comes with the system is fairly basic (Power on, play/pause, mute, vol +/-, track forward/back and fast forward/back). It does not have any of the 'menu' functions so you can not navigate as normal through your ipod device. That said it is still more useful than no remote at all.
One useful function that persuaded me to opt for this model was the s-video output on the back of the device. It promised to allow me to view video and films stored on my ipod through the TV. After placing the order I read a review that said the s-video only works with older models of ipod and not the newer ones, however I tried it on my new ipod and it worked just fine.
After 2 days my remote stopped working also and I arranged to send the unit back to Amazon for replacement. They have since decided that there is no point sending the unit back to them for replacement as all of their stock has the bad batch of remotes. If they knew this I do wonder why they continue to supply it with the knowledge that the remote will fail! Hopefully if/when I receive a replacement direct from Klipsch it will work ok?
That aside a great product which is value for money especially when compared to more expensive products.
UPDATE 12 Feb 2010
After several email correspondence with Amazon Customer Services I still have not received a replacement remote control. They tell me they are still waiting to hear back from Klipsch???Read more ›
