Ipod Speakers

  ponytail 18:54 19 May 2010

I know this problem is not computer related but perhaps someone can advise.My wife is going on a walking holiday to Austria in August and would like to get a ipod but she also wants to have some sort of external speaker system.I do not know much about these things so need some advice.I see you can get a ipod dock which I believe is some sort of speaker.I was thinking of a speaker with a output of about 2 watts.Can some one advise of a decent ipod and also a speaker system to suit but not too big as it will go in her suitcase and not too expensive.I am sure someone out there can help.

What is your budget?

Hi gengiscant
Not sure what these sort of items cost we need the ipod and the speaker dock if that is what is classed as the speaker.Would not want to pay more than £100 and £75 would be nearer the mark.Any ideas.

Before we look at your options.Will the dock/speakers be used outdoors or indoors? do they need to be mains or battery or both,
This one is pretty good,so I am told. click here
but here is a large list, see if any take your fancy and post back.click here

Hi Again gengiscant
It will be for indoor use mains would be best but mains and battery would obviously be better but not solely battery.
