Due this January, Cambridge Soundworks' PlayDock i combines the company's advanced audio circuitry (somewhere, Orwell is crying) with the mass appeal of iPod compatibility. It works only with newer iPods (4G to the nano) but the inclusion of a built-in subwoofer (for listening to Nas, of course) is a welcome addition. Besides its one unified speaker look, which looks suspiciously like the Apple iPod Hi-Fi, the PlayDock i does everything that iPod speaker-docks have done since the dawn of time: charges the iPod, has video output, etc.

It should hit stores for around $200, if you can get past the point that companies have been selling the same thing now for several years.

DISCUSSION

These always look like they took a speaker set and after the thought slapped a ipod dock on it. They never look integrated. It may sound great but that's the ugliest remote I've seen since the dinosaurs roamed the earth. Just because its an iPod accessory doesn't mean you have to put an i in front of it (well it's better than a few years ago everything having a X in it...)
