View Full Version : CD boombox, ipod dock, and remote?

Any advice, please, on a portable CD boombox, that also plays an IPOD (nano)
AND has a remote control?
An ipod dock would be great, but if not, an aux jack would work.
(I would prefer NOT to have radio or cassette)
Any suggestions? ($50 to $75 would be great, even used or reconditioned).
Many thanks,

p.s. I suppose the remote would only work the CD, not the ipod?

Hi, I'm looking for the same, except with Radio also. I've picked up $50 products at Zellers and returned them CD SKIPs! any suggestions are welcomed!

Get a JVC Kaboom Box:

Best-sounding boombox, hands down.

They don't have iPod docks, but it doesn't matter, you can use the auxiliary input. Just get an 1/8th stereo minijack cord from Radioshack and run it out of the headphone out and into the auxiliary input. Doesn't charge the iPod, but still sounds fine.
