Remarkably, we were unable to detect any compression artifacts or other unpleasantness in the stream; in fact, the audio sounded great. Wireless iPod speaker docks are so much more convenient than the alternative. Who wouldn&rsquo;t rather pick up their iPod to change tracks, adjust the volume, or navigate playlists instead of walking over the speaker and manipulating the iPod&rsquo;s controls while it&rsquo;s docked."</em></p><p><em><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1288830248.usr10.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></em></p><p>If the convenience of a set of speakers that lets you keep you music library and full control in your pocket sounds appealing to you, check out the full review. &nbsp;These will run you just shy of $300.</p><p><em></em></p>
