The Harman/Kardon HK Go + Play is an iPod docking station featuring a brushed steel design that critics say make the HK look like a ‘futuristic bowling ball.’ It’s quite compact and utilizes four leg steels with rubber pads to stand tall and erect. And only two buttons are included: one for power and one for volume. Everything else is managed via an arc-shaped RF remote that offers extended media controls for skipping/pausing/playing tracks from a distance up to 30’. The actual iPod dock sits on top. Included is a 3.5mm stereo jack for hooking up a portable MP3 player; a USB port for syncing a docked iPod to a nearby computer; and an S-Video output that isn’t compatible with any recent iPod models like the Touch or Nano.

Additional Information

The HK Go + Play doesn’t fit the iPhone or iPod Touch/Nano. Plus, it doesn’t include a CD player or FM radio.
