Harrods has been showcasing its Sound and Vision department, aiming to tempt us with its array of audiovisual goodies in the hope we might add them to our Christmas shopping lists.
Among the beautiful high-definition TVs in their impressively slim cabinets were some heavy duty wireless streaming boxes and Blu-ray personal video recorders - one was so huge we mistook it for a record player.
One item, however, stood out - and not just because of its gaudy neon tube lighting: the Sound Leisure iPod Manhattan Jukebox.
The other thing that stood out about it was its £6,000 price tag, but if you want a jukebox and you want it to work with your iPod video and you want those videos to play cleanly, smoothly and in time with the music, you're asking quite a lot.
Sound Leisure hand-makes its jukeboxes. The iPod Manhattan comes in ither an Ice Cool white surround or in solid oak and has a 'dazzling white' LED display so you can see with an 80-CD changer as well as a dock for your now rather-less-impressive-seeming iPod video.
The iPod Manhattan kicks out 150 Watts per channel, can be connected to up to six speakers at once, has a 70-track rotating display for your CD albums and a remote control to help you flick through both iPod and CD-based content. You can also put the unit on shuffle and let it entertain you and your friends without intervention.
Makes a great change from karaoke.
