THE first thing you notice about the
J&L iWall is its size.
The iPod/iPhone speaker dock
stands one metre high, 46cm wide and
15cm deep. It is big.
Size obviously matters because this
2.1 channel, 600 watt giant (boasting a
seven-speaker system) packs a punch.
The sound is very clear, particularly
with the volume pumped up, and the big
bass is something to behold.
A handy remote control allows easy
iPod and iWall menu navigation or you

a wall of sound
GO LOUD: The J&L iWall is large for an iPod
dock, but has the power and sound quality of a
big home stereo system.

IT WAS a case of 'mo' worries for
Air Commander Australia and his
deputy when they lived up to their
public pledge of losing their bris-
tling upper lips last month.
As reported in the December
8 edition of Air Force News, AVM
Mark Skidmore and his deputy
AIRCDRE Sam Samulski made the
pledge in acknowledgement of the
impressive effort of 29 Air Force
teams to raise more than $80,000 in
support of the charity Movember.
We can now report that the deed
was done on December 9.
In the case of AVM Skidmore,
it was his beloved mo of 30 years'
seniority that took the cold cut.
ACAUST said that having had
a moustache on and off (well, only
twice actually) in 30-odd years, he
thought it would be a significant
event for Movember if the 'cater-
"I threw the challenge to my
Aide de Campe, FLTLT Niki Frost,
to raise $10,000 for the mo," AVM
"Unfortunately for me, she
accepted, and while the agreed
value was not quite reached, a sig-
nificant amount was raised.
"Given the gravity of the situa-
tion and significance of the event,
I accepted the challenge and stated
at the Glenbrook Officers' Mess
Dining Out on December 1 that the
'mo would go'.
"With some trepidation
December 9 dawned, the razors
were sharpened and the deed was
He said after the event, with
only a week to go before going
on leave, he "had to put up with a
cold, shaven top lip for a while".
"However, I can assure you that
the mo was back by Christmas, and
possibly ready for next Movember
-- we will see," he said.
Air Force ultimately raised a total
of $87,500, of which $4333.95 was
directly attributable to the ACAUST/
Congratulating Air Force on its
Movember efforts, AVM Skidmore
said it was extremely important
to do whatever possible to raise
awareness of men's health issues,
especially as a number of men
under his command had suffered
with health problems during 2011.
"It saddened me to see and hear
that a number of gentlemen in my
command have suffered," AVM
"I hope that the money raised
by the Air Force 'mo-bros' goes
a long way into research to help
prevent any more unfortunate news
and help those that are already in

touch key control system below the
iWall's equally confusing LCD display.
Sub woofer, treble and bass levels are
fully adjustable and there is an FM tuner
Aside from the recharging iPhone/
iPod dock, there is an S-Video output
and an RCA AUX input on the rear of
the system, which can restrict connectiv-
ity, particularly with the variety of input
options these days.
But sound quality more than makes
up for any shortcomings and, despite its
size, the iWall can be hauled around the
house easily to start blasting away as
soon as it's plugged in.
