Logitech Pure-Fi iPod speakers: What's the best option?

CNET offers a quick cheat sheet to help tell the difference between each of the models in Logitech's Pure-Fi speaker line.

Logitech Pure-Fi Anytime
The Pure-Fi Anytime: One of Logitech's latest iPod clock radios. But how does it compare to the other models in the Pure-Fi line? Logitech

Logitech's line of Pure-Fi iPod speaker docks has swelled to six, and CNET's reviewed pretty much every one. Some of the models have very similar features and price points, so it seemed like a perfect candidate for a cheat sheet:

*The Pure-Fi Anywhere 2 is not yet reviewed, but it's pretty much identical to the original Pure-Fi Anywhere, but with the addition of iPhone shielding.
**The Pure-Fi Express isn't yet reviewed, but it's effectively a renamed version of the older AudioStation Express.

Basically, go with the Elite if you want the best sound quality--we still think it's one of the best-sounding models from any manufacturer, and it's available for as little as a third of its list price. The Dream or the Anytime are good choices if you want full clock/radio functionality, while the Anywhere 2, Express, or Express Plus are good if you want portability.

Of course, if you want to move beyond Logitech offerings, check out our list of best iPod speakers.
