DLO HomeDock Deluxe

DLO HomeDock Deluxe

DLO's new HomeDock Deluxe ($150) is the first iPod accessory that offers on-screen navigation to let you browse and select your iPod's music on a TV screen. We've been testing it out for the past two weeks, and we can honestly say that it's changed the way we use our iPod in the living room. The sleek docking system lets us view our tunes on our big screen, play them through our home speakers, and control them with an included 18-button remote without having to get our lazy butts off the sofa. The on-screen interface is super slick (though we can't wait for an album artwork update) and lets us sort by by playlist, artist, genre, album, and more. And while you can't navigate videos or photos stored on your iPod with the on-screen interface, you can still use the remote to control video playback and photo slideshows, which is super handy. The HomeDock Deluxe has standard RCA and S-Video connections, and also features a USB 2.0 port for syncing with a computer. It works with all dockable iPods except the outcast 3G model. If you mostly listen to your iPod at home, we strongly suggest skipping a weak iPod speaker system and investing in the HomeDock Deluxe instead.
