What's Up, Dock?

Posted August 4, 2005
I've written in the past about a simple connection kit that lets you hook your iPod up to your stereo. I've also written about a wireless device that lets you control your iPod from a distance. Now, the ingenious new Kensington Stereo Dock for iPod combines those two products into a compact, all-in-one home base that also recharges your iPod (or iPod mini) while sending your tunes through your home stereo. And unlike some non-Apple iPod accessories, this baby's completely worthy design-wise. It's got a curvaceous, gleaming white base with a sturdy metal iPod support rail; an elegant little infrared remote that works from up to 30 feet away; and even gold-plated 7-foot-long RCA output cables to make sure your music travels with flawless high fidelity into your stereo. I had mine all set up in less than a minute and I totally couldn't be happier with it.
