iPod Speaker - Bose iPod Speakers
The popularity of the iPod has taken the audio industry by a storm.
Manufacturers are scrambling to provide accessories for the iPod so that it is
quickly becoming the most versatile MP3 player on the market today. Perhaps the
biggest category of iPod accessories is extensions speakers which allow you to
use your iPod as a car or
home audio stereo system.
Bose introduced their iPod speaker dock about a year ago and it has been a big
hit with consumers. The system works with third or fourth generation iPods
(including the mini). The unit itself consists of two stereo speakers with a
dock in the middle for placing the iPod. There is a remote control for volume,
song selection, and power.
The sound of the Bose iPod speaker system is quite full considering the small
size of the speakers. Stereo separation leaves something to be desired, but that
is to be expected in an integrated unit.
Unlike some other iPod speaker systems on the market, the Bose system is not
portable. It must be plugged into a wall outlet making it suitable for a
permanent home stereo system. Its sleek design makes it an attractive addition
to any room.
The lack of portability is likely to put some buyers off -- after all, the iPod
is a portable unit and not really intended to be only used at home. If you are
looking for portability in an iPod
speaker system, take a look at the Altech Lansing system.
The Bose iPod speaker system is certainly not an all-in-one unit -- it lacks a
computer interface and the remote-control offers limited system access. It's
also a bit pricey. Compared with some of the other iPod speaker systems on the
market, the Bose iPod speakers are about the most expensive.
For the money, though, you get good sounding speakers that provide usable output
for a home stereo system.
