|Best-in-class speaker technology from NXT with a stunning industrial design
Best-in-class speaker technology from NXT with a stunning industrial design. At home or in the office, the Kensington SX 2000 Speakers for iPod do something that other similar speakers cannot. Thanks to NXTs advanced SurfaceSound flat panel speaker technology, they deliver clearly superior bass and sound balance from both sides of the unit. And unlike other similar speakers, they have the power to crank up the volume without losing sound quality.
Customer Reviews of Kensington SX 2000 2.0 Speaker System - 5 W RMS - White
Great sound from stylish unit1/1/2008
I like the modern design and the overall size is pretty good for the large amount of sound that is achieved by the flat panel. I own other ribbon speaker systems and this one is just as good. The only complaint is that the iPod cradle pieces that are interchangeable depending on if you're using an iPod classic or Nano do not seat very well in the unit. Thus the iPod doesn't sit very firmly in the dock.
I was really surprised how great this thing sounds!! The bass is almost too much, but, just use the bass reducer EQ on the iPod and it sounds MUCH BETTER!! Fills the room with sound, really does. Great value and fast shipping. Ordered on Sat night and was here Tues Morning via FedEx Ground. Trust me here, there is NO competition for this system in this price range!! BUY IT, it feels solid and sounds spectacular, can't go wrong with this one everyone, enjoy :)
Got this for my office. It is sleek, stylish, and even better... it sounds great! The base isn't bad either as it is bidirectional. It is simple. Just place your ipod in the dock and power on. Amazing how loud this thing can go. I had it blasting out onto my back deck from the kitchen. The google checkout made this speaker even sweeter! You can plug a ipodmini using a dual male speaker jack into the back as well.
This Ipod speaker is very sleek and produces quality sound and also even on increasing the volume sound quality remains good.I It is a great buy for the price .I would strongly recommend it to anyone who had ipod

NICE PRODUCT FOR EVERY DAY USE
SX 2000 Wonderful Unit11/24/2006
Small and powerful. Great bass response,even at high volume levels. Better than expected performance. Very simple controls (On-Off- Volume).Check out the SX3000 for more features such as FM Radio and remote control, also available from Buy.com. Has aux input for other devices. Great for laptop speakers upgrade! Another great product from Kesington.
Kensington SX2000 for iPod10/28/2006
It is so much better than I expected. I have a iPod Nano myself and it fits perfectly. The only small problem i have with is the power button. The button is not design very well. I need to double check if I had it power off. I need to be very careful becuase the button is too sensitive. But over all, I like it very much. It is worth buying this speaker.
I bought this and wasn't sure how it would sound. WELL........It is great ,the sound is simply magnificent. sorry I couldn't get a few more for that price. If you get the chance grab it it is great............
Kensington speakers for ipod the best9/20/2006
The quality of the sound and the volume available for this unit is unbelievable........compares to units several times the price.
Wonderful sound, and suprisingly loud. I have a ledge that is chest high that separates the kitchen from the family room and this speaker is perfect there. I can here it in both rooms and it looks great.
Great for office9/19/2006
I'm using the Kensington speakers for my office, and they are perfect for that use. The unit takes up very little space, it's extremely easy to use, it charges my i-pod as it plays, and the sound quality is very good.
excellent product, one flaw9/15/2006
The sound out of this unit is fantastic. I did research on other sites before purchasing, and found nothing but good reviews. Those reviews are entire borne out by my own experience. I would recommend this product to anyone. It looks good, the sound is full and true, and sounds good at all volume levels. Only one complaint: I have a 40GB Gen 3 iPod, and the included dock adapters don't fit it, so it's stuck standing up solely by the dock connector. If this was a nano, I wouldn't worry, but the weight of the 40GB iPod motivated me to find some fix to support it. If I had a 20GB, it would fit just fine.
Gets loud with little or no distortion9/13/2006
I own a few flat panel speaker products for PC/Home Theater and the sound has always been great. This product is very much worth the price. You get loud sound with little or no distortion (depending on music), which is what I wanted from a compact system. On the other hand it handles classical music at very low volume levels very well (sound stays nice and clear). The other great thing about flat panel technology is that when properly placed in a room the sound gets projected well in all directions, thus filling the room better than a standard speaker system. Another nice thing about this particular unit is that it is not very deep, dimensionally, thus it can fit on a small shelf and takes up very little room. Don't buy one of those docking speaker sets with small 1" speakers because the sound will be dissappointing. I know because I've purchased a couple in the past and all had poor sound quality (no bass and bright tones).
I love my speakers, and I use them everyday. The sound is great. If you don't want to spend money on Bose, these are a great alternative.
I am shocked at how good this unit sounds, especially for the price. I have the unit in the middle of my room and it truly does provide sound from the front and back. For those of you using a Nano, make sure to hold on to the adapter that was shipped with your ipod. You can also use it as an alarm clock, simply by using the alarm settings in your ipod. I get 10x more use out of my ipod now that I have this, mostly because you just drop your ipod in the slot and press play.
Cool Looking & Great Sounding!9/1/2006
I love this thing! For a funky, flat-looking speaker, it really cranks out the sound, and I'm really surprised at how good the bass sounds...the whole sound is pretty rich & deep. I use this in my home-office and also move it to my kitchen (it's easy to move around), and it totally fills the room with sound. The sound comes out both the front & back of the speaker, which makes it perfect for where I have it. And it doesn't hurt that I got this thing at a killer price on buy.com! If you have an iPod (and who doesn't?), you can't go wrong with this speaker.
