Don't let the name fool you, the iLoud is probably one of the coolest portable speakers we've seen in a long time. Billed as a portable speaker with "studio monitor sound", the iLoud isn't your typical portable speaker. Sure, it has Bluetooth and a 3.5mm input, 40 watts of power, and a bass-reflex design but lots of other speakers boast similar specs. What sets the IK Multimedia iLoud head and shoulders above the rest is that you can plug your guitar or mic directly into the iLoud along with your iDevice to not only provide portable amplification for instrument but audio processing from your iDevice. At $300 a pop, it isn't cheap but point us to one other offering with the same features as the iLoud. Discuss "IK Multimedia iLoud Portable Speaker Preview" here. Read the article.
