I was looking for a speaker system for my new iPod, so I could listen to MP3's without headphones and without using my computer. Sam's Club had an iPod Anywhere Accessory Kit for $112. It includes a radio remote which lets you listen to FM radio on your iPod, a USB power adaptor, a USB dock cable, a set of earbuds and a JBL On Stage II speaker system.
The JBL system is a plastic and metal donut about 6 inches across. For something this small and this inexpensive, I was expecting mediocre sound. But when I hooked it up, I was blown away. It sounds fantastic with nice, deep bass. It also has a dock pass-through so I can sync with my computer.
I was curious about how much this stuff would cost seperately, so I hit the Apple Store. The radio remote normally costs $49, the USB charger $29, a dock cable $19. But the real surprise was the JBL speakers. They normally retail for $200! Wow!
