Docking and MP3 Speakers
Today, many of us store our music on an MP3 player, USB flash drive or computer hard drive. But when we are at home or on vacation, it's nice to enjoy music without headphones with friends, family and loved ones.
This is where compact wireless speaker systems from Altec Lansing, Apple, Creative Labs, Gweilo and others come into their own. They can usually run on batteries or be connected to the main electricity supply. They are all virtually compatible with most major devices, such as the iPod and have a port for direct connection. This also has the advantage that it can charge your iPod while playing all your music tracks. But don't worry if you're not an Apple owner as manufacturers of wireless speaker systems have not forgotten the vast selection MP3 players and come equipped with a mini-jack auxiliary input, and other connections to ensure compatibility.
