Boston Acoustics i-DS2
Boston Acoustics' new i-DS2 iPod dock is available in a choice of many colours, and will charge your iPod while playing it at the same time

If you want an iPod in something other than standard black or white, Boston Acoustics can oblige. Its new i-DS2 dock comes with four interchangeable grilles in chilli red, glacier, spanish moss and rose bud – red, blue, pale green and pink to you and me!

Inside the gloss white or piano black cabinet you'll find a pair of 9cm, full-range speakers linked to an "acoustically-tuned" chamber. Amplification is 15w RMS per channel, enough, claims Boston Acoustics, for "a room-filling, high-quality" sound.

There's a palm-sized remote control to go with the system, which will control your iPod, and the unit includes a composite video output to hook it up to your TV, a USB connector and a 3.5mm mini-jack input for hooking  up other portable music devices.

The Boston Acoustics i-DS2 will be available in October for £150.
