iPod speakers hit high note

iTower is nearly 4 feet tall

This is one piece of sound equipment that will make a huge statement without ever being turned on.

The "iTower Omega" iPod system stands nearly 4 feet tall, housing four stereo speakers in its black vertical case. The monolithic design dwarfs the iPod itself, which sits atop in its dock like a bird perched on the tip of a giant redwood.

The height is practical for another reason. As Gadget Review points out, the system lacks a remote--so the iPod will be relatively close to eye level when you need to walk over and fiddle with the controls.
