Still, the retailer has launched a high-end iPod dock made from environmentally-friendly material.
M&S reckons the BLOK comes in at an “affordable must-have price”, though my wallet shrivelled at the sound of £229 ($321). Mercifully it’s not called an iBLOK.
So what do you get for that? Sound-wise, you get 40 watts of sound from the Class D amplifier – not huge but far from pathetic. The eco-warrior in you can relax because the casing is made from natural, chemical-free bamboo, while the aluminium is 100% recyclable.
It works with all iPod models, and probably the iPhone as well if you turn it to airplane mode. It’ll be available from next month, and you can get it shipped to the States too.
