At a Glance
The iLuv i552 doesn't sound as good as some other portable speaker systems for the iPod, but is appealing for its value--you get more features (AM/FM radio, remote, compatibility with dockable and shuffle iPods) for the money ($120) than in any other boombox-style system we've tested. However, its design--a less-than-secure iPod dock cradle, no place to store the remote, and an external AC power adapter--makes it more suited for stationary use with occasional transporting.
