TEAC Ultra-Flat Hi-Fi

The recently announced Soloist media dock might be useful as a small set of iPod speakers, but its size by definition rules it out as a dedicated stereo: a small single-piece stereo will always have limited effective stereo separation or bass response. Appropriately, TEAC is offering a pair of new bookshelf hi-fi units that keep the iPod dock and NXT flat-panel speaker technology while adding much more power to the sound. The CD-X10i (pictured) is a tall, narrow stereo with a detachable iPod dock alongside a CD player, AM/FM tuner, and a minijack for accepting other audio sources. Its brother the MC-DX22i is shorter, wider, and has an integrated dock. No information has been given yet about the sound output of each set, but the price differences between the $249 CD-X10i and $299 MC-DX22i suggests that there is more than just the cosmetic difference of an integrated dock. The former model ships this month, while buyers looking for the latter can expect it in September. A photo of the MC-DX22i is available in the full article.
