Kicker iK500
Traditionally specialists in in-car audio, US company Kicker has launched its first ever iPod dock in the UK at the What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision Show

If you know your in-car audio, then you may well know the name Kicker. The American company specialises in stunning in-car set-ups, and you can see a fully-kitted out Hummer in all its glory at the Show.

But take your eyes off the Hummer and you'll see the company has made something a little smaller that we can all enjoy.

The Kicker ik500 is a mean-looking iPod dock complete with stereo speakers and a substantial subwoofer on the rear of the unit.

Despite the noisy environs of ExCeL London, the ik500 sounded capable of some hefty sound to match its chunky dimensions.

Distributed by Armour Home Electronics, the Kicker ik500 will retail for £199 – but you can get 20 per cent off if you buy at the Show this weekend.
