Sneaky little devil, the Logic3 i-Station 25. First you think it’s just another inexpensive iPod Speaker Dock. Then you notice that it’s an inexpensive iPod Speaker Dock that has been designed specifically (though not exclusively) with the iPhone and iPod touch in mind. However, it’s only when you actually get your hands on it that you discover that it’s iPhone/Touch focus is more than skin deep. The i-Station 25 has a rather nifty little party trick to play, and it’s one that only really works with these two products.


It’s not the most impressive unit on first impressions. At just over 400g it’s very light, and while I’m occasionally surprised, I usually find the old Hi-Fi adage “the heavier the equipment, the better it sounds” has some truth to it. Second, it’s built from fairly cheap-feeling black plastic, and while it’s quite solidly put together, neither the piano-black indent for the iPhone, iPod touch or iPod, nor the silver edging does a lot to convince that this is a high-class product.


On the positive side, the i-Station 25 does come with a slim, functional remote control and it does include a line-in and a composite video output, which is always handy if you want to watch films, trailers, TV programmes or pop videos stored on your iPod on a bigger screen. Controls, meanwhile, are as simple as you can get, with only a power switch and volume up and down buttons to deal with.


The i-Station 25 can be used with most models of iPod, including all three generations of nano, but it’s really built to work hand in hand with an iPod touch or iPhone. Your Apple product of choice slips neatly over the standard Apple dock connector, then you click it back into position in the indent, where it’s held in place by a rubber rest and two spring-loaded clips. These keep your touch or iPhone held very snugly, and this is important when the dock reveals its piece-de-resistance.
