Logitech AudioStation Express Portable Speakers for iPod | iLounge

Reviews

The one other advantage of the AudioStation Express is that it can hold an iPod 5G with an eVo3 or Agent18 case, which the MM50 can't. Since I don't want to carry my iPod without a case, and I REALLY don't want my preteens to carry it without a case, this is important. I wish iLounge would take that into account in speaker reviews, because the industry listens to iLounge. With very small modifications every speaker could accommodate cased iPods.

I use to use a case with my 60 GB 5G, but I switched to using a Crystal Shield film set. No, it does nothing for drops, but it does, and very effectively, prevent scratches. I carry my iPod in my pocket all the time. My iPod looks like an iPod (you'd be hard pressed to notice the film unless I pointed it out to you) and it works just fine with docks of all kinds. I have, in fact, dropped my iPod and really not much happened. I think the iPod is a lot more resilient than many give it credit for. There is a tiny dent on the edge from the 2nd such drop, but the iPod continues to work flawlessly and even with a tiny dent it looks much better than a cased iPod and it's much thinner. Works great and I highly recommend it.

the reason logitech is putting 2 speaker systems out is options. If you compare the two, they are he same. But the MM50 is a "travel speaker" without the bass of the Express. Again, if they offer more options, you are more likely to buy from them. I wouldn't be surprised if this uses the same speakers as the mm50

It really could have been more beautiful if only they included a dock connector port. You really can't find a decent portable speaker system that has complete plugs (a/v out, dock connector port, etc.). Oh well, I'm being an idealist here.

I have bought the audio station as a second speaker for my kitchen. I liked the form factor more than the mm50, mainly because of the big volume knob, that is easy to handle.
Now, I just unpacked it and inserted my 3G iPod. The sound is good, but: It doesn't charge! The iPod charges fine in my other speaker system (Altec InMotion). Anyone else having trouble with charging the iPod in the Audio Station?
