Hi-Fi Systems with iPod Dock
One common use for Hi-Fi systems is as iPod speaker docks. If you already listen to all your favourite songs on your iPod Touch, there is no reason not to take advantage of your stereo as an iPod Touch docking station.
What are the Advantages of Docking Your iPod?
While Hi-Fi systems with Bluetooth make it easy to pair your iPod with your mini Hi-Fi system, there are advantages to going with an iPod docking station:
- Power: Using Bluetooth means your iPod is using its own battery, a docking station can charge your iPod as you play.
- Connection: A physical connection is more robust than Wi-Fi, so you often get better sound than you would when streaming over Bluetooth as there is less compression.
Choosing a Hi-Fi System
One thing to consider is getting an AM/FM Hi-Fi system that you can use as an iPod dock with radio. It gives you access to the news as well as entertainment. Everyone has different feature needs, and the key is knowing which ones matter most to you.
