NEWS: Grundig puts a dock in a bucket

Just the thing for the beach, particularly boisterous garden barbecues or indeed anglers who want to scare the fish once the close season finishes on Monday, this is Grundig's £100 Emanate.

It's a weatherproof, splashproof iPod speaker system, complete with rechargeable batteries and a lock-down see-through cover for your personal player, and any similarity to an ice-bucket is entirely coincidental.

It comes with controls around the dock, and also a remote handset, and has a mains adapter for recharging. Other facilities include a 3.5mm input for other MP3 players.

It has a 2x15W output – see what we mean about scaring the wildlife? – and stands 24cm tall. It's available in black or white, direct from Grundig's online shop.
