NEWS: Charge and play your iPod with Gear4's BassStation

Another day, another iPod dock, this time from Gear4. The £99 BassStation is a 2.1 docking system with a built-in subwoofer and charging dock for your iPod.

It has a claimed output of 35w per channel, and 15w for the subwoofer, which has a 5in driver.

Non-iPod owners can also connect other MP3 players to the system via the phono input, and there's a video out jack for connecting the unit to a TV.

The remote control can be used to play, pause, rewind or fast forward any docked iPod, and can also adjust bass and treble levels on the BassSound itself.
