Attention all connoisseurs of sound and refined design. SoundFreaq, the upstart that brought us 2010's fine Sound Platform speaker, is now offering a smaller spinoff called the Sound Step.

We gave this guy a test-drive back at CES 2011 and were impressed with the number of features that come included. Aside from a dock that supports the iPad, iPhone, and iPod, the Sound Step also offers an FM radio, composite video output, line input, UQ3 audio enhancement, an extra USB port, and wireless Bluetooth audio, all for just $139.

For an extra $20, you can purchase a model with a rechargeable battery called the Sound Step Recharge, which offers all of the same features, plus 6 hours of battery life.

The SoundFreaq SFQ-02 Sound Step is available now, exclusively from Amazon.
