All you have to do is pop your iPhone or iPod into the dock and place it somewhere convenient. Next, just plug the receiver base into your hi-fi and you're ready to go. The unit is supplied with its own remote control, so searching for tracks is a doddle.
The RothDock and receiver can sit up to 10 metres apart and still communicate with each other.
Existing owners of suitably equipped speaker docks can also enjoy the RothDock's wire-free ways – all you need is a system that houses a 3.5mm stereo jack or twin RCA inputs.
And you won't miss a call if listening to your music: when the phone rings, the music fades and you'll hear the ringtone through the hi-fi system.
As well as charging your iPod or iPhone, the RothDock will also work with non-Apple MP3 players and phones which can be connected using the supplied 3.5mm lead.
The RothDock is compatible with all iPods with 30-pin connectors and 2G and 3G iPhones. It goes on sale in December.
