OK, you asked for pictures...here they are, a week later.



An excellent picture of the HG finish, taken by my lovely wife. (I can't take photos that good.)

See, Dad, this stuff is actually mine. Really.

I like the last two for scale purposes....seeing it in your hand and then on top of the other speaker gives a good idea of the size of these things.

Hey, those look like mine \:\) .

Has anyone tried connecting an iPod or MP3 player up to these? I just tried connecting my son's Sandisk Sansa and it shuts down when I plug it into the power port.

I've noticed that this particular MP3 player communicates with the PC when its power/comm cable is plugged in. The Axiom amp is for power only so I'm sure it's getting confused because it's not hearing back and hence shutting itself down.

For an iPod, you need the "docking" thing. Then you can both play music and charge it. At least, that's what the instructions say. An iPod by itself does not work (tried it).

Yeah, I get it. So I have to find the equivalent of an iPod dock for my MP3 player.

They need to make the firmware for the players a little smarter to eliminate the need for docks. Maybe shorting pins 2 & 3 together would work because the music player comm lines would loop back.

That's odd. I assumed the Apple docks pretty much were a passthrough to the dock connector, with a few lines going off for remote control and audio out.

That would mean they could not charge you 60+$.

Mojo, Sansa makes docking stations as do others for the Sansa MP3 players, My wife has a Sansa for running and I have looked at them before. They are about the same price range as Ipod docks.
