Cambridge Soundworks makes iPod compatible speakers

Cambridge Soundworks, which is a subsidiary of Creative Technology, announced their latest and greatest set of speakers. The $200 PlayDock Zen and PlayDock i run off of either onboard batteries or a power cord. The speakers use "wide spacial imaging" technology, and have a built-in subwoofer for bass response. Every set of speakers comes with a remote, is magnetically shielded so it can be placed near a television, has TV out ports, and an antenna to boost FM reception on the Zen. The PlayDock Zen works with the Zen Vision:M, V and V Plus players, and The PlayDock i works with the 4 GB and 5GB iPod, iPod Mini and iPod Nano.

That your choice in "quality" speaker manufacturers is poor, and you confirmed it with the Bose comment. Bose is notoriously one of , if not the worst speaker manufacturer on the planet. They are known for their incredible marketing of poor quality products. Cheap crap, overpriced, and marketed to hell - to the point that the average joe believes they are the best. Cambridge Soundworks, while not to the level of Bose in poor quality - is on the same playing field for computer audio.
