Krell touts top-rank iPod dock

Sounds good

High performance access to file storage

There are plenty of iPod docking stations available right now, but if you demand nothing but the best for your Apple player - and have the cash to get it - then high-end stereo manufacturer Krell reckons it has the perfect dock for you.

Krell's KID iPod dock: expensive

Its KID iPod dock is being marketed with that bold claim that it’s “the world’s best-sounding iPod dock” and, considering it costs around £1300 (€1650/$2600), it certainly should be. Krell claims the KID achieves this status by being able to retrieve the musical signal from an iPod and “handle it with respect” while reproducing it with “levels of sound quality that will delight the most critical listener”.

Though this is no docking station to connect up to your tatty old stereo. Krell expects users to link it to a high-end hi-fi system in order to take full advantage of, say, the digitally-controlled analogue bass and treble controls, 255-step custom-taper volume control or balanced and singled-ended outputs.

The KID is controlled via a supplied remote control and is available in the UK through Absolute Sounds.
