Few iPod docks resemble the front bumper of a car, yet that's exactly what Shaper Image's iBeam Speaker Dock manages to do. It connects with any dockable iPod and uses SRS WOW technology to deliver surround sound. On board you get everything you'd expect from a speaker dock like an AM/FM radio, a backlit LCD, and an auxiliary input for connecting other MP3 players. The iBeam can also be hooked up to the company's optional Woofi subwoofer ($49 bucks) for additional thumpage. At $169 dollars, it's not that pricey and I admit the weird car-like design helps it stand out from the rest of the pack.
