Wall of Sound defines iPod overkill


Sometimes a cigar is just of cigar, and sometimes a "Wall of Sound" is just a... wall of sound. At over 3 feet wide by 4 feet tall, the Brothers Wall of Sound is one of the largest iPod docks on the market, and at almost $4,500, it's certainly one of the most expensive.

This massive slab of speaker boasts 28 different drivers producing a range of 40 Hz to 20 KHz, powered by a built-in 125-watt tube amplifier. Each Wall of Sound is hand-crafted, which contributes to the speaker's hefty price tag.

If you think dropping almost 5 grand on an iPod speaker dock is a little excessive, you're not alone. On the other hand, if you're the kind of person who carries all of their music on their iPod, why futz with cables? Just drop it into the dock and start shaking the floors.

The first generation of the Wall of Sound is already sold out, but the company's ambiguous "second generation" model is available for pre-order from their web site.
