Dock for connecting your iPod to your home entertainment system and TV.
The following is a summary of our feature review of the DLO HomeDock Deluxe and the Griffin Techology TuneCenter:
Both of these iPod docks perform as advertised and add the welcome ability to browse your iPod library from a comfortable distance with the convenience of on-screen menus. Choosing between them depends on which features appeal to you the most. The HomeDock Deluxe lets you browse your iPod’s videos via onscreen menus and displays albums art; the TuneCenter lacks such features but boasts a better-looking interface, offers Internet radio listening, and costs $20 less. Of course, to make the most of either product, you’ll want an iPod with video-out capability.–James Savage
