Not counting the lovely acrylic fiber optic angel that Grandma gave me (wink wink), my favorite Christmas gift (other than non-material gifts) is by far my 40GB iPod! And what goes better with an iPod than a Bose Wave music system. Such a nice, compact, powerful pair.
One might ask why I didn’t opt for the Bose SoundDock designed specifically for ones iPod. The trouble is you can’t integrate other stereo equipment such as SIRIUS satellite radio, the SoundDock doesn’t have a CD player, basic radio, etc. So…the Wave is more cross-functional and only costs $100 more. If you’ve never experienced the unbelievable sound that comes out these little gems, you should check it out…it’s well worth the money. If you don’t believe me, here’s another testimonial.
So…I begin my quest to actually attempt to utilize 40GB on my iPod. I’m up to 31 songs and one audio book – ‘Quick & Simple Spanish’…which I can play in my car or on the Bose in the kitchen while I cook (not that that’s ever really gonna happen).
UPDATE: I received a number of questions regarding the cable used to connect my iPod to my Bose, so I posted this entry: http://blogs.sun.com/roller/page/lskrocki?entry=ipod_to_bose_cable
