Excerpt: When it comes to iPod speaker docks, there are a few things I look for which can make or break the dock. First and foremost, it needs to sound good and be loud enough so that you don’t need to have it a couple feet from you to enjoy it. Size is also another important thing. If a dock is overly large, it better sound good! Lastly, any extra features a dock has are nice, whether they are standard or something not so standard.
