    The SoundDock Portable system’s big sound and slim, sleek design are made possible by proprietary waveguide speaker technology and powerful neodymium speakers. Now you can play your iPod out loud - almost anywhere. The system is engineered to be moved easily from place to place. A rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides more power and longer playtime than most other types of rechargeable batteries, for hours of listening enjoyment. A rotating dock folds neatly inside the main enclosure for easy storage and protection during transit. And a remote easily controls the SoundDock Portable system and basic functions on your iPod - including playlist navigation.
    Powered by a Rechargeable Lithium-ion Battery
    The SoundDock Portable system operates using a lithium-ion battery which provides more power and longer playtime than most other types of rechargeable batteries, for hours of enjoyment. Even at higher volume levels, one could expect over five hours of audio enjoyment on each charge.
    Technologies and Features Make it Better
    A host of advanced Bose technologies - engineered specifically for this portable system - reproduce music with fullness and clarity unmatched by other battery-powered speakers. Some of the SoundDock features include:

    • Built-in carrying handle also serves as a waveguide exit for a more efficient use of acoustic space.
    • Charges your iPod when plugged into an electrical outlet or when operating on battery power so that your iPod is always charged and ready to go when you are.
    • Convenient docking, works with most iPod models.
    • Remote control not only adjusts the SoundDock Portable system’s volume, but also controls basic iPod functions - including playlist navigation - from almost anywhere in the room.
    • Simple to use. Intuitive operation of the SoundDock Portable system and basic iPod functions. And you have full control of your iPod when it’s docked.
    • Volume control buttons inconspicuously placed on the side of the system let you adjust your music’s volume even if the remote is not readily available.
    • Ramping volume feature automatically turns the volume up gradually when it’s first turned on.
    • Bose performance and Bose simplicity. Integrated system design matches amplifiers, equalizers and speakers for better acoustic performance, providing consistent acoustic quality without the inconvenience or worry of complex component adjustments.
    • A collection of proprietary signal processing technologies delivers an enjoyable listening experience at any volume level.
    So Easy to Use - Just Dock and Play
    With the convenience of a rotating dock that folds neatly inside the main enclosure for easy storage and protection during transit all one has to do to enjoy music bliss from an iPod is to rotate the dock forward and place the iPod into the cradle.

    The SoundDock Portable Digital Music System is excellent; easily portable; the sound is fantastic; I simply unpacked it, plugged it in to charge it, attached my ipod to it and used the accompanying remote control to select a playlist and singing in the shower along with the music (a critical necessity for me) was restored (smile).
