Yamaha’s PDX-31 probably won’t knock your socks off when it boils down to sound quality, but in terms of design and simplicity it’s a home run in our book.

Inside the box is a reinforced, dual wall “box-within-a-box” construction with twin 3 1/4 -inch speakers.  If you haven’t sussed it out yet, there is a 30-pin dock for all things Apple perched on the top and an Aux input for other MP3 players.  They’re tossing in a remote and an auto power off feature for the eco folks.

You should be able to pick one up soon in red, black or white for $169.95.
