The Good The mStation 2.1 Stereo Tower offers a unique design and plenty of low-end boom. It includes a built-in iPod dock and an auxiliary line input for any other audio source. Plus, it gets really loud.

The Bad The mStation 2.1 Stereo Tower is pricey, and it suffers from janky construction.

The Bottom Line The mStation 2.1 Stereo Tower offers an alternative design befitting a home office or dorm, but it packs enough punch to rock a room many times that size.

Anyone who has tried to wade through the multitude of iPod speakers on the market knows that the options are seemingly infinite, and that many of them are very difficult to distinguish from one another. So it's pretty refreshing when a company like mStation comes along and tries to offer something a bit different, first with the colorfully bulbous Stereo Orb and now with the lanky 2.1 Stereo Tower. Unfortunately, this tall speaker comes with a high-end price tag ($299), but without the excellent build quality. Still, for those looking for more oomph than the Bose SoundDock can offer, the Stereo Tower is a good alternative.
