Aktimate Micro Black 2-way Active Speaker System with iPod Dock
Aktimate's Micro 2-way speaker system is an ironic name at best, as there's nothing "micro" about this dock whatsoever. Available in three different colors, this speaker set looks and behaves much like a set of high-quality stereo speakers, but instead of patching them into the back of your receiver, there's a 30-pin dock attached. This dock can accommodate all Apple devices with a Lightning connector adapter used for the newer models.
Performance-wise, the Micro delivers true reproduction of your music with deep, full bass and a sharply detailed highs. You can also crank this thing all the way up and it will still give you great sound without distortion or loss of any elements in your music.
But this is strictly a dock device and you don't get wireless capability here for streaming without connecting. The size may also put a few consumers off as well, as it can fit on your desktop but will taking up substantial room. Of course, if you're concerned about desk space instead of head banging, then maybe you're not rock and roll after all.
