Audio/Speakers&Amps by stefan @ 2011-06-24

The Kicker iK501 from Stillwater Designs is an iPod/iPhone dock which can deliver quite a punch and also features Composite/Stereo RCA outputs, along with a 3.5mm input, to be able to be connected to other sound sources. With the rotary control knob we can access all the product functions, but the unit is also shipped with a remote in case the dock is placed in an inaccessible location.
