I tried all the Ipod speakers around the Apple Store table, from the ridiculously priced Zeppelin, to JBLs, Sony, iHomes, etc. I am pretty familiar with the Bose docks which I have been longing to own for so long but just can't justify the price. I own a Cambridge 5.1 system that I use on my PC upstairs. It has gorgeous sound and I considered an overkill even for playing games. I never turned it loud enough cause it is actually more than capable of disturbing our townhouse neighbor.
This guy is soooooo underrated. Beautiful, fantastic sound quality. The 24 watt subwoofer makes such a big difference too. Low volume or high volume, it just blows me away.
Using an AV cable for ipod, I hooked up the dock via AV out to my 42" LCD TV. Connecting only the video cable and using the dock's speakers, that's how I watch all the video podcasts I collected while doing treadmill.
Added feature is the ability to use it as a speaker while you play a slideshow of your Ipod pictures on your TV.
Pros: - FANTASTIC Sound quality - Subwoofer. Most Ipod speakers system does not have one. Subwoofer has its own separate loudness control. - It can play any Ipods or any MP3 player. (It includes several Ipod adapters and a line in) - Wall outlet or batteries - Shielded - Remote control - Simple design and nice look - Rubberized handle - Pricepoint
Cons: - Although the power adapter is small, it still a brick. It would also be much better if it is one piece instead of a two-piece cord set. - Requires 8 C batteries
* Docking may not work with the latest ipods.
