Short info

It's a bowling ball, it's speakers, it's... m-station. The iPod speakers that look like a bowling ball!

Detailed information

The mStation Orb is a mere 8" in diameter and a 2.1 stereo system with docking station for the iPod.  The iPod sits on top.  The mid and high speakers face forward, while the subwoofer faces backward.  The remote control duplicates the controls on the iPod itself, with additonal controls for bass and treble.  It comes with 6 inserts for all iPods, and a cable for connecting the Shuffle or other MP3 players.  Operates on AC only.  Very decent sound.

Bill Gaines Stories
