    Need a dock station that allows me to play music through it
    I have a 4GB iPod Mini, and while I love it, I just hate having earplugs when I try to sleep. So I wanted to know if there are any good dock stations for my iPod Mini so I could play my music through that and sleep without having the discomfort of earplugs/headphones.
    Thx!

    A mate has the Bose SoundDock and he loves it, even comes with a remote control. I think it's less than $300US, not sure though. There's quite a few of these type of things around.

    So what you want basically are some iPod speakers with a dock...

    Then I suggest you check out iLounge: They have about 200 different systems ranging from 10$ to 500$.

    I personally like Logitech's mm50:

    i have the altec lansing iPod inMotion and its okay. good for if you're just going to sleep to it, as you won't have it that loud anyway.

    BUT, eBay it. i got one for thirty bucks. don't pay retail.

    and i also have, which i HIGHLY recommend if you want to use it for general, during the day use (though its not as portable as the inMotion), is the JBL product, JBL onStage . it has more bass and sounds great. again though, eBay this stuff. the mark up is RIDICULOUS on iPod accessories and there are a lot of people that buy these with unrealistic expectations. its not a 5.1 DTS 300w system. its a little, convienient solution to not wearing headphones.

    those are the two that i have.
    jbl is in the bathroom and the inMotion is set on top of my eliptical machine. work outs breeze by when you watch episodes of stuff!

    Yeah, the JBL OnStage is pretty nice... there are 2 versions out: one with & one without remote control...

    I think if I end up getting the JBL OnStage it will be without the remote. It will be placed right next to my bed (on top of my night stand), so I do not see the value in inquering a remote controller.

    If you have a shelf stereo already, you could also just get a $3 minijack to rca cable and play the ipod through your stereo, that's what I do. Just an inexpensive suggestion

    Would that work with my Logitech Z-5500?

    I imagine it would. Looking at the product sheet for your system it says it can connect up to 6 audio sources, which I assume means that it has 6 sets of audio inputs. You can find the cables almost anywhere, I bought a 6' one at Wal-Mart and I'm pretty sure it was $2.99, maybe $3.99.
