Product Category: Speaker dock
Where to Buy: Zune.net Store or Amazon.com [Affiliate]
Price: $114.99 USD (Zune.net sale price) or $176.99 (Amazon)
System Requirements: Compatible with Zune 30, Zune 4/8/16, Zune 80/120, and technically the Zune HD.
Specifications: Kicker has them all.
- Excellent sound - crisp highs, solid bass response;
- Has auxiliary audio input so can act as computer speakers;
- Works with all Zune models, including the Zune HD (the remote doesn't work with it however).
- Remote control is a bit strange, and there's no place to store it;
- No battery-powered option, which is important for some people;
- Darth Vader-inspired design may not be for everyone.
