Affordable Hi-End Audio… Mate!

100210_Mini_Red_High_126v2

In my never ending quest for high quality audio without the high end price tag, I'm getting in the AktiMate Mini (Maxi soon after). The AktiMate series was designed by Mike Creek, owner of Creek Audio and Epos Loudspeakers.

What you get is a Creek amplified Epos speaker with an embedded iPod dock and two additional inputs for listening to a source other than your iPod. When the iPod isn’t in use, there’s a hinged cover built right into the speaker that folds down flat to conceal the dock. They even come with a cute little remote control. The Maxi has even more features like wireless streaming and internet radio. See more HERE

Awarded “Best Desktop Speaker of 2009,” by UK’s What Hi-Fi.
