The TEAC Aurb is being advertised in the UK now, so I’d expect it to go on sale in Australia in the not too distant future.
It’s an iPod dock, a CD player and FM radio. If you don’t have an iPod, there’s a jack to plug in your non-iPod music player, or use the USB port to play music from a flash drive.
The TEAC material claims that the Aurb’s iPod dock will play ALL models of iPod, but I suspect when they say that they’re meaning iPod Touch, iPod nano and iPod Classic models. An iPod Shuffle wouldn’t look quite right placed into the dock.
