Griffin’s AirCurve is essentially a transparent display stand with a coiled waveguide within that acts as an amplifier: in short, this polycarbonate speaker doesn’t need power to operate.
Now that the iPod Touch packs its own speaker, iLuv’s battery powered iSP100 loses a bit of utility; however, it’s relatively portable and at 4W RMS (8W peak), not bad for the size and price.
David Wiener Ventures’ Art.Suono acts as a bridge between your iPod and sound system; the race-inspired system features an Engine Start button and shifter-like input signal switch.
Jonas Damon’s 2B Radio is a retro minimalist’s dream come true, with a matte black case and three vacuum tubes in place of transistors. It’ll hook up to your iPod or MP3 player, too.
Bang & Olufsen’s saucer-shaped speakers (link: BeoLab 5) are now available in the Aston Martin DBS and DB9; each car will have two of these tweeters which retract when not in use.
JVC’s HXD77J isn’t for the faint of heart–this monstrous boombox features separate amps for the woofers, tweeters and subs, all of it blasting 540 watts to its 4-way speakers.
Nearly five years old, Bang & Olufsen’s BeoLab 5s are still crave worthy. These Dalek-like speakers have 2500 watts on tap and sweet spots wherever you sit. Thanks, Nicole!
Boynq’s Wake-Up iPod Dock is uber-stylish, with three backlit LCDs for time, radio station and input channels. It also sports 3″ speakers and an equally stylish remote control.
Altec Lansing’s iPod-friendly inMotion Speakers both look and sound great: the moondance GLOW is a dual-alarm clock radio, while inMotion MAX delivers crisp, full-spectrum sound.
The venerable boombox sticks around another year, this time with Sharp’s 250-watt CD-DK890N and CD-DK891N systems. They come with a 5-disc changer and iPod Dock.
Porsche Design’s stylish Eton P’9210 Clock Radio has three speakers, a subwoofer, iPod dock and satellite radio hookup. Other than the odd remote, the minimalist design works.
Bowers & Wilkins’ Zeppelin iPod Dock isn’t just an eye-catcher–its shape disperses sound efficiently, easily filling rooms. Bonus: shielded wiring makes this iPhone friendly.
Marka27’s 16″ tall Minigods have an ace up their sleeve chest — these limited edition vinyls also double as speakers, with a mini-jack and battery-powered internal amp.
There are iPod docks, and there’s Alesis’ TransActive Mobile: despite packing only 22 watts, this speaker is ideal for outdoor parties. No outlet? It runs on a rechargeable battery.
Logitech’s Squeezebox Boom answers our wi-fi prayers: it streams music from your PC, internet radio and subscription services, and packs a pair of 3″ woofers and 3/4″ tweeters.
Available September 1, these Boosted Tin Can Speakers add a bit of style to your desktop; the cans feature art from artists Mint, Serf and Mainframe; they’re battery powered.
Most speakers have to hide behind a black mesh, but Sonance’s Kayak speakers bare it all with two cone shaped coaxial drivers; the acoustic reflector in the middle is for accurate stereo.
There are plenty of other iPod/iPhone docks, but the CVT i3101’s wall-mounted form factor scores major style points. Also cool: FM radio; alarm clock; reads USB drives and SD flash cards.
No, it’s not a Photoshop hack–these are actual USB-powered speakers. They’re mega sized (500x larger than real iPod earbuds) and mega geeky: just the way we like things.
Sony’s sexy S-Airplay is a wi-fi iPod dock that streams music to up to ten speakers. The dock also doubles as an AM/FM radio; it can simultaneously stream your iPod and radio to separate rooms.
Getting the most out of Pure Digital’s Evoke Flow Radio will require that you live somewhere with DAB+ access (i.e., Europe), but we like that it streams music from internet radio stations.
The PICO Hybrid Radio combines both DAB, FM and internet radio into a splash proof package. It’s powered by a rechargeable Li-ion battery, making this ideal for outdoor and bathroom use.
All speaker and little else, Altec Lansing’s Orbit-MP3 speaker gets right to the point but still manages to pack in a little style. Its straightforward look comes with an equally honest price.
