    I-Pod docks

    I recently bought my dad an I-Pod and now he want's a dock to go with it, rather than spending ages searching and reinventing the wheel I thought i'd be lazy and post here for recommendations . I'm looking in the sub 100 area if possible.

    Any ideas?

    Also are the FM transmitters any good for the home?

    Richer Sounds sell one which you can hook up to an existing system. About 25 quid last time I checked.

    It can be powered by Mains or Battery... the sound quality seems good when turned up to bedroom volume... (Border-line complaints from me!); to be fair she doesn't generally start rattling the windows unless I'm out, so I can't say what it would be like outside (and it's raining at the moment!)
