Bose SoundDock 10

CNET rating: 3.5 stars out of 5 (Very good)

The good: Really good sound from a compact, single-speaker; classy, minimalist styling; plays loud without distorting, and fills a large room; simple to operate; interchangeable dock system; composite video output/line input; GSM shielded for iPhones.

The bad: Expensive; optional Bluetooth dock accessory works well but is $150 extra; no radio; you can't charge your iPod/iPhone when using the Bluetooth accessory; video-out limited to low-res composite connection.

The cost: $599.00 - $599.95

The bottom line: While it's expensive and isn't loaded with features, the Bose SoundDock 10 is classy looking and sounds excellent for a compact iPod/iPhone speaker.
