I stumbled on the Alienware CE-IV some time ago. It’s E.T.ware’s funny foray into digital audio players, and for some reason I find it somewhat comical that I should come across this: a dedicated hub for the device, or as they call it, the “2.1 Channel Portable Music Enhancement System.”
Specwise, there’s nothing out of this world (please pardon the pun… you know, aliens, out-of-this-world… ah never mind). There’s a “down-firing” subwoofer, and the docking area is shaped to mate with the CE-IV, though they recognize their probable failure in the DAP market and allow for any other player to connect as well.
So there you have it. It’s a $100.
