considering that a sound dock will likely to sit at a prominent location within your humble abode, therefore it is imperative for style-conscious folks exercise caution when selecting one that’s not only sounds good but has the right look to match. one such example would be the NAD VISO 1 Wireless Digital Music System. of course, we couldn’t vouch for its sound but the rave reviews to date are something we would not argue about, so let’s move on to see what it has to offer. it does what all sound dock does but with bits of extras. key features include NAD’s proprietary Direct Digital DAC/Amplifier, ability to play the music stored on your iPod in its native digital form, Bluetooth aptX wireless high fidelity receiver for wireless streaming from any Bluetooth-enabled devices, optical input, bi-amplified system with digital crossover, bi-amplification for lowest distortion and widest frequency response, component video output, rotatable docking cradle for iPhone/iPod Touch charges while docked, upgradable software via built-in USB port, and IR remote. oh, did we mention that it looks great too? with a retail sticker of £499 (about US$800), the NAD VISO 1 Wireless Digital Music System sits in the same territory of today’s high-end sound dock like the B&W Zeppelin Air.
