One iPod dock for $2,350, ugliness included

Meet the "iCoral" from Germany.

Audio Junkies

Is there any reason that could possibly justify spending $2,350 for an iPod dock? We think not but, then again, we shop for clothes at Ross.

What supposedly makes the "iCoral" so special is a synthetic coral material that reduces unnecessary vibration, according to German manufacturer Copulare. Other specs include a USB port, video output, and two-way remote.

Audio Junkies notes that the dock, which works with the iPhone and Touch as well as various iPod iterations, has "click-wheel"-styled accents in both white and black models. We're glad they cleared that up, because we thought it doubled as a hot plate.
