Monitor Audio i-deck - Music System for iPod only £99.99!*****

Found 17th Aug 2006
This seems to be an excellent price for the Monitor Audio i-deck - Music System for iPod - it's only £99.99 delivered from AMazon - a quick froogle search tells me that this is A LOT dearer everywhere else (£200+). So I'd say, if you are interested, get it fast before Amazon put the price up.

What is it? It's a dock and play unit for your iPod - nuff said. I'll post the full spec in the forum.

Excellent price drop on this from when I posted it last week It was £167 then!

Bargain Thanks!

That's quite a drop in price from last week! This is a great price then - and it gets excellent reviews, so well worth the money if you're after something like this.

Cheers Ray.

Bargain price emma, thanks http://hotukdeals.com/images/vote-hot.gif

Just one word of warning...

Its not compatible with the new Ipod Nano or Ipod Video 30GB/60GB. At least not so from the description on Amazon's website.

That's the reason why its so cheap ;-)

Edit: I'm inclined to take back my post... see posting by brooke (#9) below.

monitor audio is a very well respected brand (they generally do high end av kit). Although going off brand reputation can be dangerous (see Warfdale) at first impressions it looks very good.

Also available in black at the same price

This deal is [COLOR="Red"]AMAZING[/COLOR]. I already have 2 of these they are so good. Won awards in [COLOR="Blue"]WHAT HI-FI, Stuff, T3 and MacWorld[/COLOR]. It sounds better than all £250 non iPod speakers and is way better than the BOSE.

Get one for every room in your house at this price!!!!!!!!!

I use mine with a NANO and VIDEO and it comes with adapters for BOTH

Thanks for the votes of confidence on this guys. The black one looks really stylish as well...

Looks like a very good deal Emma, well done!!

Would love to see what the adapter looks like for the Nano, any ideas :confused:

I've written to Amazon this morning telling them to change the description. I'm about to buy 4 as Christmas presents. You cannot get a better speaker system for the iPod. You will not regret this purchase - but be quick. They may only have a few at this price.

Oh and just one comment on the above...

Monitor Audio are nothing at all like Warfdale! Monitor make extremley high end AV equipment on the same scale as Denon, BOSE or Harmon Kardon (Not quite B&O yet).

These are truley one of a kind.

So tempted to get this but just worried it wont come with the nano adapter as it doesnt say it does.

My flat mate is the audio buyer at Amazon & I can confirm that it does come with cradles for the nano and 30gb video...and it sounds amazing! Hope that help :-)

Ok cheers, bag it I'll take it.

Welcome to HotUKDeals NJ2215 Thanks for the info too

If you happened to order one of these last week, at the much higher price, Amazon should allow you to have a refund of the difference. I did it with a previous purchase from them with no problem. The details of their commitment to that, I'm unable to find now though :roll:

I love this place. I was just looking around today for prices on this and had pretty much resigned myself to not bothering for a while. At this price though it's well worth the money.

Welcome to HotUKDeals and pleased you're loving it

I thought it was good at £167 but this makes it easily worth paying out for, if the reviews are anything to go by

BUMP! This excellent deal is still available Great reports on it too.

Mine arrived today - can't belive how substantial it is - comes with adaptors for Ipods from 3G onwards, including the nano, and sounds fabulous. It's still available from Amazon, so get one quickly!

Briliant martin! Great to hear your opinions on this excellent product.

Cheers and welcome to HUKD!

It does sound very nice. Surprisingly good bass response and clear upper range. certainly goes loud enough to fill most rooms.

Bargain at this price.

Glad you like it as well, it looks to be a brilliant piece of kit. Welcome to the forums Ultim8Fury!

Well thanks for posting it. As I said earlier in the thread I had been looking for this exact speaker setup most of that day and had decided that at £199 it wasn't worth the effort.

Bump Sorry but these offers are worth another forum visit. Very popular this one...

Thanks, excellent deal. Looks like their is a new version coming out soon which is probably why the price is dropping but if it sounds half as good as what I am reading in the reviews it's well worth it!

I ordered the black one even though I have a white IPod 30gig Video as I think it looks less "plasticy" in the pics I have seen. Black and white go together anyway :thumbsup:

I'm doing the same. I bought a black car charger/cradle to go with my white 20GB "photo" model (another HUKD tip-off!!!!) and the contrast looks great.

In-stock again too at £99.99 delivered...
