    It’s mighty hard for gadget makers to produce iPod docks these days that get attention. With local pharmacies and grocery stores offering ‘em up, its hard to get noticed. I noticed this dock from RockridgeSound though. Read More

  • CEDIAcrunch hands-on: Wadia 170iTransport iPod dock

    CEDIA is full of iPod docks, but the only one that interested me was the Wadia 170iTransport. It comes from the same company that has been producing uber-high quality, but pricey, digital audio converters since before the last Bush administration. I spent some time with the 170iTransport and walked away fully impressed with the audio and video capabilities. Granted, the unit isn’t… Read More

  • XtremeMac debuts Tango X2

    Yes, it’s another iPod dock. Is it necessary in an already over saturated marketplace? Probably not, but if you were a fan of the original Tango then the X2 just might be the perfect upgrade. The 2.1 speaker system offers ‘precision tuned high dynamic speakers’, tweets and a sub. An AM/FM radio is also included in this iteration. A blue LED display is placed behind the… Read More

  • LG PC12, the jolly, puffy iPod dock/HD radio

    Isn’t it cute? It looks like a little football! Hey, dad! Guess what I’m calling you on! It’s a football! Remember that? Yeah, me to. Anyway, this is PC12 iPod dock with HD radio and standard clock radio functions. As you can see the read-out pops up on the dark face and it supports USB audio as well as standard audio-in. Amazing?

  • Shampoo? Check. Conditioner? Check. iPod? Check.

    I’m not a huge listen-to-music-in-the-shower person but I’ve had bathroom speakers rigged up in various ways over the years, just in case the mood hits. This new doodad looks cool and it’s certainly an interesting take on waterproof music but it might be more trouble than it’s worth unless you plan on leaving your iPod inside the tube permanently. It’s made by… Read More

  • iWoofer Is Out Of This World


    I can’t quite put my finger on it, but the iWoofer looks like a cross between a gremlin and some Japanese anime. Aside from its unique looks, it packs a combination of a downward-firing subwoofer, tiny titanium drivers and an FM radio, making it a sure-fire hit in the saturated iPod-accessory world. With an elevated setting you can watch your videos and see the pretty blue lights… Read More
