We’ve done a number of posts in recent months about different ways to make your digital music collection, whether stored on an iPod or home computer, sound dramatically better. So today, in the interest of simplifying your life, we’ve assembled them all under one digital roof. You’ll find something for everyone (and every price point) here:
- Zeppelin and Zeppelin Mini: When the music experts at B&W rolled out the original Zeppelin portable iPod dock a few years ago, it was an immediate hit. This fall’s rollout of the Mini saw the arrival of a smaller, less expensive Zeppelin, but one that offered additional features, such as USB streaming. Check them out.
- Tannoy i30: Plug you iPod into the Tannoy for great sound anywhere (remote included). And at $129 (you save $270), it’s a deal you can’t refuse.
- Duo-i Plus: This Boston Acoustics gem is an iPod dock and clock radio with some sonic boom in its three-and-a-half-inch speakers (you can add an optional subwoofer). It’ll wake you up.
- Cue Radio Model r1: Another clock radio that rocks, offering a dock for your iPod or iPhone, as well as AM/FM and great sound.
- Parrot portable speaker systems: These awesome, stylish portable speakers have an iPod dock that you can control remotely. Plus: they can stream music from your PC wirelessly by WiFi or Bluetooth. Check them out.
- Digital streamers: The Chordette GEM takes over for the lower-quality sound card in your PC (as well as your iPod) for superb digital to analog conversion, making your digital music sound better than you’ve ever heard before. See how.
- iDecco: A terrific integrated amplifier from Peachtree that can work with a home system and ALSO has a dock for your iPod. Hearing is believing.
- Sonos Zoneplayer S5: This wireless music system lets your speakers move where you want without messy wires. And while it isn’t specifically designed to improve your digital music sound, it can be controlled via remote control with an iPod Touch or iPhone.
