I received a new Costco coupon booklet yesterday. Only good for costco members unfortunately. Have not seen the system with my own eyes but the picture on the coupon seems to suggest that it includes the speakers. The deal for £160.99 inc vat is used in conjunction with the £50 discount voucher. Checking other online retailers this system seems to sell from £380 upwards

High-quality all-in-one audio system for use with iPod/CD/Portable Media Player, utilising hybrid vacuum tube amplification technology and sonically matched speakers.
This means that the amplifier and dock elements are built into a single piece chassis, thereby providing an elegant and high impact design. The specification has been uplifted to include 2 pairs of source inputs (plus the iPod dock), a remote control which handles volume and tonal changes for all three sources, (plus all the iPod functionality) and a huge increase in power to 25w per channel.
Coming complete with striking matching speakers or without, Red-i is a beautiful evolution of the iTube principle.
The iTube Red-i with Speakers comes complete with full function remote control.
