iPod docks as far as the i can see…

Another day, another feature review, this time at GadgetGuy.com.au, where I’ve looked over high-end iPod/iPhone docks with an eye to working out if they’re really worth the asking price:
Premium iPod Docks: “Inexpensive iPod docks abound, but will moving up the price ladder yield a music system that better serves your playlist? Alex Kidman tests the theory with five premium models.”
And for those who want to jump straight into the action:
Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Mini: “It’s not the be all and end all of audio quality, but those wanting solid audio in an eye catching form will be very happy with the Zeppelin Mini.”
Geneva Model S: “The Geneva Model S is a solid iPod dock in audio terms, but it’s a system you’d buy as much for the sheer visual appeal as you might for the actual audio quality.”
Pioneer XW-NAS5: “If you’re after a full room solution but space prohibits a sound system incorporating docking functionality, this is a good middle ground.”
Revo Blok: “Like many other iPod docks at a premium price level, there’s as much an aesthetic as a practical choice to make with the Blok.”
Revo Ikon: “If you want a dock that does more than just play back iPod music and you don’t particularly want your music blisteringly loud, the Ikon’s a solid option.”
