Review: IK Multimedia iLoud

Audio technology has become less expensive, more transparent, more powerful and more portable. Perhaps it’s about time that consumer-focused systems started to catch up with professional ones.



The new iLoud by IK Multimedia ($299) is one attempt to bring studio-quality sound to consumers, musicians and hobbyists while providing features that are relevant to many of today’s listeners. Its makers have included wireless Bluetooth connectivity, a rechargeable battery, even a guitar input and modeling software that can turn this portable, wireless device from a 40-watt stereo system into a 21st century practice amp.

IK Multimedia has marketed this simple-looking black box as “The first studio-quality portable speaker designed for musicians and audiophiles.” And we thought we’d just have to see about that.
