My System Specs

Default MP3 players / docks

So my wife wants an mp3 player with some kind of docking station or built in speakers for Christmas.

This is something I've never even looked into so I figured I'd turn to the crowd here for some thoughts. The obvious choice seems to be an ipod of some kind, but those things are still pretty damn pricey.

Anyone have any other options that they could recommend?
Looking to spend no more than $150 if possible.

Cheers

My $50 ( black Friday sale) paygo phone w/ a $20 32G SD card makes a pretty decent WiFi capable MP3 player. ;-)

Did some research and I'm kinda leaning towards a set of these: http://www.amazon.com/Ultimate-Wirel.../dp/B00E9YIFQ4

Apparently they will work with her Samsung phone, so now I just gotta convince her to transfer all her music to her phone and I'm set :)

Oh yeah, didn't even notice the audio section - any chance of moving this there?

Amazon.com: Logitech Bluetooth Wireless Speaker: Electronics

Those would be amazing, they work with bluetooth and her phone would definitely work well with it. One of the best sounding and THE best sounding for the money.

Thread moved.

Yeah... Bluetooth speakers seem to be all the rage this year. My only real concern would be range.
