TwinMos MiniBoom for iPods everywhere

Dock, listen, sleep and wake

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Perhaps TwinMos felt its earlier attempt at an iPod docking station, the Boom 1, was a little heavy-handed. Its created new model that's not only smaller but also includes more features than its predecessor.

MiniBoom
TwinMos' MiniBoom: an improvement on earlier models?

The aptly named TwinMos MiniBoom is an iPod-centric device that docks most versions of Apple's music gadget into a bay on its top surface, but which also has a line-in jack to accommodate any other MP3 player.

Since its dual speakers only pump out a measly 2W each, we're glad to see that a meatier, 15W sub-woofer is built into the MiniBoom's base. A multi-function remote control has been thrown in too.

The MiniBoom gives users a wider range of non-iPod functions than the Boom 1 did, such as a digital FM tuner that features ten pre-sets for quick access to your favourite annoying DJs. It also has a selection of alarm and sleep modes, and a calendar. The addition of an LCD display is a nice feature, helping you to see song titles and radio frequencies, as you tap your feet in time to the music.

The TwinMos MiniBoom is available now for £80 (€65/$120), but you may want to wait until October when the manufacturer will release a DAB-enabled version for £100 (€130/$200).
