Introduction

The Mondo Mint system is both a lifestyle music product, USB audio device AND a wireless iPod system. Now, it's not every system that allows you to drop your iPod into a local OR remote charging station and have either location play it through the same set of speakers. And just TRY to find something that can play audio via USB from your PC as well... The Mondo closely resembles a double-wide Apple Mini, with the same color motif and rounded corners. It's a nice look and the machine will fit in well with an AppleTV should you decide to go that route.

Double-wide? Does it come with a little Astro-turf mat and tiny white picket fence?

I can't seem to find the frequency response measurements? You wouldn't do a speaker review without measurements, would you?

Why not? Bose does.
