Kata Mali 01: an iPod speaker dock with style

There are tons of somewhat ugly iPod speaker docks out there claiming to have cutting edge designs, but there are few that actually achieve the look of sophisticated design that this Kata Mali 01 Aluminum speaker does. And it's not just a pretty face — it has an auto-on feature, which turns the speakers on when a device is plugged in, and it pumps out 15 watts per channel. It also has some sort of wax coating that should keep its purdy aluminum finish from getting all scratched and uglied up. Since it's a sweet design and it's from Japan, there's no way it's gonna be cheap. Yep, $1,300. Well, it is cool looking…
