Enormous iPod dock weighs in at 900 pounds

The iNuke from Behringer has dual 18-inch subwooofers at 3,000 watts each

For audiophiles with an extra US$30,000 a new iPod dock pumps out so much bass it'll make your insides shake.

Launched at the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show the iNuke from Behringer measures a massive 8 feet by 4 feet by 4 feet, and weighs 900 pounds, or about 408 kilograms.

Watch a video on YouTube to see the iNuke in action.

The iNuke has dual 18-inch subwoofers at 3,000 watts each. "You can run this thing off two 15 amp residential circuits," said Costa Lakoumentas with Behringer.

To avoid blowing a fuse, when the iNuke is turned on it powers up the components in a sequence. There's also a switch on the back of the unit to add 12 decibels of extra power.

Lakomentas said there are "a couple" of preorders for the massive unit, despite its high price.

"It's not for everybody," he said. "But for someone who has the space and is willing to invest, they get a sound system that is equivalent to anything at the finest club or concert."

For those not looking to spend the cash Behringer has made a much smaller dock that retails for $99.

CES runs until January 13.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
