If you have an iPod this is a must have product for you. It is by Bose which should tell you right away it is a high quality piece of equipment. Bose sound is clear, crisp and powerful. It is always amazing to hear the sound that can come out of such a small compact unit.
This Sound Dock works with your iPod. There is a spot to place your iPod and it will charge while docking. Once you place it in you then select your song as you normally would. The difference is that it will play through the speaker of the Sound Dock. This makes it a great for use in the home or when having a party. You can access your iPod music collection and be sure everyone can hear it.
It does have volume buttons on the base of the Sound Dock to increase and decrease the volume. It also comes with a very small, credit card sized remote control. What I love about it besides the great sound is the portability. It plugs in the wall and is not large at all. This allows you to move it to where you need it. We keep ours in the bedroom most of the time but if we are having friends over we often move it downstairs so we can all hear it. We also take it on vacation with us every year to have our tunes in our rented house.
It is a little pricy at $399 but truly a wonderful, useful product of the utmost quality.
