Stop the presses. This is a damn sexy dock ... and it is not for the iPod. Yes, I am as shocked as you are. This is the Z600 dock from Creative. It is the first dock powered by the Creative X-Fi audio processor. X-Fi makes your crappy Limewire'd MP3s sound awesome by upconverting the digital music file and restoring the audio information that was originally stripped during ripping.

The Z600 includes two wall-mountable speakers and an 8-inch subwoofer. I kind of lied—it includes a dock for Creative's line of Zen players, but it also includes auxiliary inputs so you can plug in that iPod if you feel so compelled. It will be available on November 24 for $400. A bit pricey, but X-Fi is the bee's knees, yo.
