Speaker Details & Features

Who needs a component amplifier when it's built in to your speakers? The Sierra Sound iN STUDIO 5.0 offers 50 Watts of room-shaking, space-saving sound. The pair of speakers features a Universal iPod dock, S-Video output, two auxiliary inputs, and even an auxiliary power socket. These speakers, available in white, black, or red, look great, don't take up too much space, and--most importantly--deliver sonic clarity to satisfy the most discerning listeners.

Sound First
The iN STUDIO 5.0 speakers are active, bi-amped 25W enclosures with a one-inch natural silk tweeter and five-inch shielded paper cone. Both drivers are magnetically shielded for interference-free placement near televisions or monitors. The speakers feature a tuned port for vibrant bass response, ensuring tight, accurate, room-filling lows. The matching grilles look great with the design while offering protection.

Universal iPod Dock
The iN STUDIO 5.0 features a Universal iPod Dock that is ready for any dockable iPod model. Charge your iPod while it's docking, and synchronize it with the supplied USB connection. For those of you with video-enabled iPods, use the S-Video output to view your videos and photos on your television.

I/O Versatility
In addition to the iPod features, the iN STUDIO 5.0 boasts two additional source inputs. The first is a stereo RCA connection, ideal for CD/DVD players, TV/Radio Tuners, video game systems and more. The second 3.5mm mini jack input is ready for MP3 players and more. Have an Apple Airport Express? Use the inputs to stream music wirelessly from your computer. You can use the auxiliary power socket to power it. For those with older iPods, there is a S-Video connection to display video from Gen 5 and 5.5 iPods. For those who are buying the new iPods, use the speaker dock for the sound, but not the video.

Effortless Operation
Set up is simple, power plug into the wall, plug in each speaker and you're ready to go--no speaker wires. The Auto On/Off feature means you simply insert your iPod and the iN STUDIO 5.0 will power up automatically. Use the included infrared remote for control over your iPod's functions and audio source.

Great Sound and Great Look

I recently had an end of summer out door party and the Sierra Sound speakers supplied the music for 25+ visitors. We were cooking out, and every one was outside and the music was missing. So I grabbed the speakers, set them up on the front porch, plugged them in and people started producing iPods to play their favorite music. I really enjoyed the fact that the speakers were sounded great and everyone could hear the music, it was also nice to let others be in control of the music, while I manned the grill.

The speakers performed perfectly.

If you are looking for a pair of speakers for your house this is a great system. The can produce a very loud crisp clean sound.


Sierra sound has created an superior iPod speaker system with the in Sound 5.0. The sound is crisp and clean and will fill any room in your house. They also do a great job outdoors. There is no battery option so you will need an outlet to plug them into.
