Our take on the Bose® SoundDock® 10 digital music system

Just plug in the power cord, and place your iPod in the system's dock. The included remote lets you control basic player functions — such as play, pause, and skip — as well as make volume adjustments from across the room.

Stunning, spacious sound from your iPod or iPhone

You don't necessarily need a big audio system with floor-standing speakers to enjoy room-filling music from your iPod or iPhone. The compact Bose SoundDock® 10 digital music system only occupies a space 17" wide by 9-5/8" deep, yet it delivers rich sound with plenty of clear highs and deep bass.

Advanced acoustic design makes the difference

A powerful, rear-firing woofer provides low-frequency punch. Bose waveguide speaker technology efficiently uses the cabinet's interior to shape and enhance the sound as it leaves the woofer, for even better performance. The two built-in stereo speakers deliver clear, natural mids and highs. The end result is music that sounds great even in a large, open room.

Simple setup and operation

The SoundDock® 10 system works with all docking iPods — including the newest models — as well as the iPhone and iPhone 3G. An auxiliary input lets you play other portable devices through the system.
