Who knows, maybe it looks better when it’s lit up. As it stands now, the iHome Ambient Lamp and iPod Speaker Dock Combo doesn’t bring much to the table, aesthetics-wise.
The lamp part of the combo is the top cube, and is an LED touch lamp that can be dimmed and brightened with a few taps of the finger. The speaker is the bottom cube, and puts out three watts of power. It sports neodymium drivers that help with overall sound quality and durability. The iPhone/iPod Touch dock awkwardly slides out of the side of the speaker, making for an asymmetrical presentation when the device is docked. It’s definitely an odd look, but I think if you squint a little, it kind of looks like a cat.
The iHome Ambient Lamp and iPod Speaker Dock Combo is available from Toys ‘R’ Us for about $70.
