Hammacher Schlemmer Drops Tube-based iPod Speakers

True audiophiles know that when it comes to serious fidelity, there’s no beating the triode tube. And now Hammacher Schlemmer is releasing its own triode-based speakers just for the iPod. Nevermind that anyone serious enough about music to need a set of these $4,000 speakers might do well to play their tunes from something better than an iPod. The pricey speakers will begin shipping on January 20.

    Hi everyone.
    What's a good alternative to the IPOD?
    I'm wondering if any of you can recommend a good MP3 player that is comparable to the IPod but WITHOUT they hype and price tabe to go with it.
    I was at the apple store a few days ago, and really liked the new 40GB or 80GB IPods that also show video, but was wondering if I could get the same kind of funcationality without that heftly price tag.
