iPod accessories manufacturer iHome has released the iH69 - a pair of desktop PC speakers combined with an iPod dock.

The 20 Watt, 2.5in speakers can also be used for direct audio output, charging and syncing iPods without the use of connecting extra cables to your PC.

The speakers will even allow playback when your PC is off, through the dedicated play/pause, fast-forward and rewind buttons on the base of the right hand speaker or the controls on the iPod.

A price for the iH69, which looks set to be released in mid-2008, has not yet been confirmed although it is expected to be in the region of £100.
