An iPad Dock That Actually Looks Better Than Your Tablet

By Andrew Liszewski on at

Because they seemingly outnumber the stars in the sky, speaker docks for iOS devices are rarely worth a second glance. But Jarre's new AeroPad Two dock manages to do the near-impossible with a beautiful design that almost makes it feel like docking your iPad will muck it up.

A standard 30-pin dock connector lets you perch your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch on the AeroPad Two, but if you'd prefer to keep it free of such visual distractions a USB port lets you connect and play a flash drive full of MP3, WMA, AIFF, or standard WAV files. Those UFO-like pods on either side are speakers, while round back a deep subwoofer also serves as a support for the whole dock. At £580, available for pre-order now, it's incredibly expensive as far as speaker docks go. But you do get your choice of a solid black or bamboo finish on the front, which totally justifies dropping more than your iPad's worth.
