Teac’s New iPod Docking Station
by Mark R
New iPod docks are a dime a dozen. (Actually, iPod docks are usually more expensive than that, but my point is the numerous models and not the price.) In short, there isn’t much to say about any new iPod dock when it hits the market. This one that you see here is from Teac, and the TD-X300i looks like it might stand out in a few areas.
Let’s get the specs out of the way first. The TD-X300i supports CD-R/RW and MP3 audio files. The dock itself is compatible with all iPods from the fourth generation.
Some of you may have noticed the unique speaker configuration. It has a subwoofer with a maximum output power of 5Wx2 + 15W. You might also have noticed how flat the other peripheral speakers are, and they are a product of NXT technology.
I’ve been hearing a lot about NXT technology lately. I believe that they have invited me to their breakfast at CES, and I am anxious to see what else they have to offer. Stay tuned for that article.
Speaking of CES, Teac would be insane not to have the TD-X300i on display at Las Vegas this year. Especially when the new iPod docking station is planned to be released in January 2009 anyway. The price is reported to be at €235.
