Pressure Drop has announced the JukeDock, a new iPod A/V docking solution that resembles a vintage jukebox. The JukeDock, which connects your iPod to your home entertainment system, is available in white or black for $100. In addition to audio and video connectivity, the JukeDock can sync your iPod with a Mac or PC, works with your existing home stereo remote control, and features built-in lights that can be set to one of four modes—“Rainbow,” “EQ,” “Cycle,” and “Steady.” The JukeDock works with 4G and 5G iPods, the iPod mini, and iPod nano.

Interesting, but pricey.

” ...works with your existing home stereo remote control….”

huh… is this a typo or does this dock actually knows how to work with every stereo remote, maybe a programmable receiver?

3rdEye- yes, this dock actually does learn remotes- I’m proud to say it’s patent-pending and a world’s first;)

Does this thing charge as well? I have a friend who always takes his ipod somewhere and it’s always low on battery everytime I see it.

I just purchased a Juke Dock and liked it so much I ordered another for my office (one white, one black).  Not only does it have all the features of Apple’s “Universal Dock,” but you don’t have to worry about selecting/carrying the proper insert—the dock itself is adjustable.  Video output is available as either S-video or NTSC composite video and there’s also stereo output.

The dock does work with a number of different remotes, although which buttons are programmable will depend on the remote.

Then, of course, there’s the light display which is just wonderful—it looks just like the flash animations on Pressure Drop’s website.

And NO, I don’t work for them, I’m just a very satisfied customer.

PS It also works with my iPhone, although I have yet to find a way to output video from the iPhone to a TV, whether using Juke Dock or Apple’s “universal” dock.  The iPhone simply lacks the menu command to send output to TV. (Bummer).
