Soloist Universal Dock

Media docks are usually exercises in compromise: if it sounds good, it's usually too big to fit on your work desk. If it's small, it sounds feeble. And in many cases, the inputs are often limited to a single device. Directed Electronics' new Soloist Universal Media Dock just might be a better balance between size, support, and quality. It uses NXT flat-panel speakers with a 10W amp that should offer better sound without a lot of extra bulk. You're also free to use multiple device types. While native docking support is limited to more recent Sirius satellite radio units and iPods with Dock Connector ports, there's also front and rear aux-in jacks for just about any other audio device you might own. You even get an alarm clock that can start playing music when you wake up. The Soloist should hit the streets in September for $149.
