    Someone is asking me what is the best speakers (iPod plugs into it via dock port) under $150. it is the 5G iPod.

    Seeing as i don't know much about those types of speakers, I figured i would ask here. It is for valentines day for this persons boyfriend.

    I looked at the Logitech mm50 and the iHome. And just wanted to get other users opinions seeing as i never really trust customer opinions.

    I have the HK Soundsticks/iSub and they are absolutely amazing! I think I got them at buy.com for $110 about 6 months ago.

    This person only wants the ones that plug into the dock, sort of like the Bose Soundock.

    I do like the HK soundsticks but they want something that looks like this

    iHome iH5.

    I'm sure they're not the 'best' out there... but I like mine and they got a pretty good review on iLounge. Pic here. If you have a Costco nearby (and you're a member) then you should consider getting it from there because 1) it comes with the remote (usually retails for $20), 2) it's the second revision meaning dimmer backlight and softer alarm volume, 3) it's relatively cheap at $89.xx, and 4) Costco has a reliable return policy so if your friend hates it, s/he can still return it.
