LG, $199. lg.com/au ★★★★ If you’re going to have an audio device, it doesn’t just have to sound good it also has to have the looks to match. LG’s iPod dock is an attractive unit that looks like two rectangles have been slotted together in a game of giant blocks. The design means this unit can hold an iPad (in the portrait position) as well as an iPod or iPhone. In the negatives column, the dock has the old-style iPhone connector so iPhone 5s will not be sitting here. But don’t despair. This does have Bluetooth so you can still connect your iPhone 5 (or other Bluetooth device) or you can connect it via the 3.5mm input plug . Be warned: we found the music dropped out when we walked between the unit and the iPhone when the two were connected by Bluetooth.
