Two new speakerdocks from iHome look very nice


The people at iHome make some of the more attractive iPod accessories around. There are a gazillion docks out there, but most are made from cheapish plastics and look like a cyborg threw up.

The iH69 speaker system from iHome does not. The attractive, slim stereo speakers feature a dock for your favorite iPod and include a minimalist remote control. These would look great in the dorm room of my future trophy wife.

There’s another new offering from iHome in the form of the iP47, more of a do-all system, including Bluetooth audio streaming, large front-faced clock, and alarm settings. Interestingly, it has a microphone for iPhone users; say you get a call while your iPhone is attached, it automatically becomes a speakerphone system. Cool.
