Pure Fi anywhere is good, but lacks a little bass, the sound dock again is nice but for their price you might as well get the desktop speakers with a dedicated bass module. Not tried the igroove although I've heard they were good.

Consider the Harman Kardon Portable iPod Go + Play Speaker System, it's cheaper than the Bose one but sounds much better. Also look at some other Logitech systems, like the Logitech Pure-Fi Express and Pure-Fi Dream. The JBL Radial is also an excellent speaker. I would scrap the Bose idea. There are much better speakers out there for the money.
Got a question? MRoogle it!

I would have said iPod Hi-Fi if they were still making it.
In that case, I actually recommend the Harmon Kardon iPod Go + Play as well; sound quality is superb on it.

If you're looking for something on the go you could try these speakers:


They're the iHome iHM77. Very small but deliver great sound. I bought these for my deployment that I'm on right now. I carry them around so I can plug my iPod Touch to them. You should check them out.

Good luck!
