    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.

    Do you consider Bose the best in home audio as well?

    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.
