Bose’s SoundDock 10 is designed to be an uber-iPhone/iPod player, and for $600 it’d better: it features a pair of Bose high/mid Twiddlers, 52″ of waveguide channels and a subwoofer.
Bowers & Wilkins’ Zeppelin Mini is a smaller version of its blimpy big bro with 36 W of power and a pair of 3″ drivers; it also features a direct to digital USB port and rotatable docking arm.
Despite their cost, Rockport’s Aquila Speakers are only middleweights in their lineup; each features triple laminated enclosures, 5″ baffles and a 13″ bass driver. Warning: full-screen.
The boombox gets a new lease on life with these Retro iPod Speakers; good with everything from the Mini to the iPhone 3GS, they’re powered by your iPod and produce stereo sound.
From the same guy who made the Sorapot, Joey Roth’s Ceramic Speakers are made with acoustically dead porcelain and sit on cork and plywood with 4″ drivers and a T-class amp.
Art.Opera’s aluminum monocoque, 4 layers of Ferrari paint and carbon fiber trim sounds like a car; it’s actually an ultra-premium passive four-way speaker system in a pair of 4′ towers.
With a built-in rechargeable battery (good for 8 hours) and Bluetooth, these E-blue Speakers add to the iPhone’s own speakers with a titanium dome driver; they measure 2.5″x2.5″x4.7″.
Designed for up to a 42″ flat panel TV, the AUX Level Speaker is twice the power of their standard Classic model; it’s a mono-block 2.1 amplified stereo system with subwoofer.
We prefer our home theater setups to be more subtle, but we can’t fault Akai’s AISS010 Theatre System for lack of features: it includes an iPod dock, 1080p DVD player and built-in speakers.
Neither a speaker nor a headphone, Adam Miller’s Klang Ultrasonic Transmitter concept avoids disturbing others by precisely aiming low-level ultrasound waves at your ears.
Budget friendly and stylish to boot, Altec Lansing’s low-profile BXR1220 can-shaped speakers feature dual 50mm drivers, built-in controls and are conveniently powered by USB.
While their performance may be suspect with only 10W of power, Kenwood’s Odelic Speakers are lookers with optical glass housings; choose from blue or white LED lighting.
With three LCD monitors, four subwoofers, three tweeters and an 1100W amplifier crammed into a piano, Gardner Post’s Baby Grand Master may be a bastard, but it’s a sexy bastard.
Grace Audio’s Aqua Sounder lets you take your iPod poolside without worrying about getting it wet; a dock streams music to up to 10 floating speakers, with a max range of 150 feet.
The gadget gurus at Brando have a new combination uber-dock up; it could use an eSATA port (it uses USB 2.0), but still packs a 2.5″/3.5″ HDD dock, two USB ports and 3W speakers.
Looking like a cross behind a King Cobra and a golf club, Ben Wahrlich’s wireless Serpent Speakers feature a base that can be easily bent to suit your desk’s space requirements.
More novelty than innovation, Ilshat Garipov’s Sound Egg speakers feature a rounded base that encourages spinning; a heavy weight at the bottom keeps them from tipping over.
These streamlined Focal XS 2.1 speakers don’t just look great, but produce studio quality sound for professionals via an active amplifier; they also include a convenient iPod dock.
A pair of mirror-imaged, omnidirectional arrays and a quartet of 12″ bass drivers make up these gorgeous MBL 101 X-treme speakers, which faintly resemble Federation warp cores.
Designed for people with small rooms (but big wallets), Von Schweikert Audio’s Unifield 3 features a SEAS Excel magnesium woofer in a tall, line-loaded enclosure with four chambers.

It won’t be abducting any cows, but mobiBLU’s UFO A10 is not only an MP3 player but doubles as a desktop speaker with Bluetooth; we dig the cool blue LED lighting on its underside.
Killing two birds with one stone, GoStereo’s Tune In Tune Out headphones also double as speakers; sound quality is average but it does save you from carrying two devices.
The sequel to the successful X-Minis, the X-Mini II portable speaker not only gets a larger 40mm driver but can be tethered with up to 7 other X-Mini IIs; CNET reports it can get “deafening.”
Let their be light … and sound: this SoundBulb concept seems a mite futuristic, as it not illuminates with LED lamps but streams music via Wi-Fi or bluetooth through 8ohm speakers.
eFizz doesn’t instill much confidence name-wise, but this all-in-one iPod dock and 2.1 stereo system cranks out 70 watts RMS through Cabasse speakers; it includes a HandMusic remote.
