Is good, compact sound important enough to you that you'd opt to buy an iPod sound system that looks like a totally freaky space monster? I mean, I don't really mind it all that much, but there are who get pretty paranoid about any kind of gadgets that might be remotely frightening. Consequently, I'm very well aware that some people might not really want this $120-ish iPod dock from iWoofer, even if it has a built-in subwoofer. Because it's scary. Really scary.
