A decent iPod speaker system with class A amplification needing hugh heat sinks? It runs off several car batteries…

I am pretty sure its an ipod subwoofer with specialy desinged speakers!!

Posted by JROCKinAK on May 23, 2006 at 10:30 AM (CDT)


I think its a docking speaker!!! maybe it will have cool lights too… maybe some blue LEDs to accent the black…

It’s a CD case! Wait… no. That can’t be right. The “ribs” on the side look like they’re possibly just a reflection on the item’s metallic surface. (A reflection of 16 black iPods stacked closely in a row?) The item appears to have some sort of “leg” or peg at the bottom, indicating that -if it is a case- it is at least large enough to hold something the size of speakers…

Hmmm… so what is it? I dunno. It’s a toaster for your iPod.

On second thought… it could be some kind of chargin dock or mediain/out dock. Perhaps suitable for an office setting or household setting.

You know, “Charge up to 16 iPods at once in your home or office!” I just have to believe that that reflection is a reflection of 16 ipods stacked closely together… so it stands to reason that it’s a charging base or media center.

Maybe every person in the house plugs their iPod into this one dock and it gives audio/video out to the TV so you can select music or videos from up to 16 iPods by remote control to watch on your TV all from one docking device.

But, I’m probably just cuckoo. Those ridges on the side are actually just pop tarts.

My guess is some sort of new case/dock.  And as for the whole ‘reflections of iPods’ theory, you can see that the ‘ribs’ on the side are really just black plastic(?) stips of varying length, because you can see by the reflection in the glossy material that the one closest to us is far longer than the shortest one furthest away from us.

I know this is probably very intelligable, but I’m tired, so sue me.

Looks to me like it could be a speaker system. Specially from seeing the sort of “leg” on the bottom of the picture. Maybe a “classic” style speaker?.

Posted by mp3confused on May 23, 2006 at 10:38 PM (CDT)


Looks like a classic styled speaker system to me!

Posted by mp3confused on May 23, 2006 at 10:39 PM (CDT)


ok, the second pic leaves [me] no doubt that it’s a speaker.
but why is it black (1st pic) and yellowish-white (2nd pic)? that last pic looks a lot like those old grey-white computers…

It is a retro stereo system with an iPod dock.  I mean, look at that green color.

Posted by lebkin on May 24, 2006 at 3:16 PM (CDT)


It is a time travel device/speaker system that is activated when an iPod is placed in the dock. Unfortunatley the unit can only go from the present day to the “Golden Age of Radio”. Name another device that would have an old school style speaker cover.

the bottom picture is a speaker

Posted by bo on May 24, 2006 at 8:45 PM (CDT)


It’s some kind of awesome stupendous dooberlacky speakerbox thingy.

Posted by Des Loh on May 24, 2006 at 10:29 PM (CDT)


I second picture definitly looks like a speaker system similar to the iPod Hi-Fi System. The first one is realy hard to make out…could be a part on the back of the system but pictured very very close. But it looks as if those black plates are movable….strange.

Posted by Daniel Setzermann on May 25, 2006 at 3:37 AM (CDT)


Personally, I think it could be a cozy little cradle/speaker, designed to look like a flower pot…grin…with the iPod docking like a flower.  Just in time for Summer.  Why not?

A distintive Speaker for your ipod.

Posted by Adam on May 25, 2006 at 6:16 AM (CDT)


It could also be some kind of coathanger for ipod cases or something like that. Or either that, or somekind of ventilation.

Posted by Symbol on May 25, 2006 at 6:23 AM (CDT)


It’s a high-end speaker system like the iPod hifi.

Posted by Ho Yan Chan on May 25, 2006 at 6:32 AM (CDT)


This is so obvious!  It’s the long awaited iPod Ottoman Dock with foot-controlled remote.

Ahhhh this is an easy one. With summer about to kick in, this is the first portable air conditioning / speaker system. The first photo with the “heat sink”  fins are actually the vents that cool-music filled air flows out of. The second photo is the incoming air filter & base speaker.
