back to article Edifier Luna 5 iPod speaker

MP3 player speaker rigs aren't exactly rare these days, but they have an annoying habit of falling into two categories. On the one hand, you have the 'sounds great but blow me its expensive' devices such as B&W's Zeppelin.

    iPhone compatibility?

    Sorry, just glanced at the thumbnail version of the illustration and realized that it looks like a black version of the Mekon or (for the US readers), some other Area 51 visitor. Does anyone else see the resemblence (although a colleague here says it's more like a characture of one of the Cylons out of the new Battlestar Galactica)?

    (Coat icon because I just realised I must go and get an eye test soon).

    Nice touch

    "Typical of Edifier's attention to detail: when you switch the Luna 5 off the volume quickly runs down the scale to zero rather than just cutting off abruptly - a nice, if peripheral design touch."

    Or, a voltage stabilising capacitor running dry and a happy side-effect? :-)
