Review There are more speaker systems available for the iPod and iPhone than I can count, but the iPad has missed out on all the fun so far because, of course, it’s far too big to fit into a docking system designed for its smaller brethren.

iLuv's iMM747: jumbo dock?

I’ve heard rumours of a couple of iPad speaker systems that are due around Christmas, but iLuv has got there first with its iMM747. Priced at around £100, the iMM747 will be available in November, primarily from HMV, suggesting that iLuv is hoping to pick up some impulse buyers during the Christmas shopping frenzy.

The iMM747 is just over a foot wide, although most of that space is taken up by the large central docking unit, leaving two relatively small satellite speakers bolted onto the sides of the unit. The plastic casing feels a bit lightweight, but the speakers aren’t meant to be portable so they don’t need to be particularly rugged.

Dock head

It’s also a little light on features. iLuv refers to the iMM747 as a "desktop or bedside speaker dock". The reason for this is that there’s no remote control included with it, which means that you have to place it close at hand. You couldn’t really listen to your music while slouched on the sofa in the front room as you’d have to get up and walk over to the unit every time you wanted to adjust the volume or skip to the next track.
