The world of iPod docks is severely crowded, but when one from Arcam comes along it really is worth sitting up and taking note.
This really is an audiophile-grade dock for iPod and iPhone users. It doesn’t output audio itself, but instead allows you to connect to any hi-fi or home cinema system.
What’s special is that it includes some nifty features such as intelligent charging (doesn’t charge the iPod all the time, improving battery life and sound quality), features radio frequency suppression and noise reduction, and has both audio and video outputs.
It features a built-in audio preamp, high quality op-amps and low-noise double-regulation power supplies.
Costs Â£150 ($250).
