EIGHT OF MY daily readers give me Christmas presents. To make life easy for them, I have fingered a short list of iPod accessories worth considering. Unfortunately, all of my lust-worthy iPod accessories won't fit in a Christmas stocking. Read on for the list.
- iPod Home Docking System from Altec Lansing for €105. A highly efficient Class D amplifier powers four full-range micro drivers to deliver a full spectrum of pure, distinct sound, while the revolutionary MaxxBass technology allows listeners to enjoy deep bass without lugging large speakers around. Best of all, connectivity is as easy as placing your iPod into the built-in dock or connecting it through the auxiliary port.
- iDJ from Numark. For less than €300, you can clip your two iPods into the dock and toggle from one device to the other without pausing. The iDJ mixing console comes with a three-band equalizer, microphone input and an additional input add other devices like CD players or turntables.
- Solio solar-powered charger for the iPod. It costs €99 in Apple stores. The charger can power most mobile phones as well.
- Underwater iPod. Get your waterproof case and headphones online for €125 from H2O Audio.
Now it's back to work.
