Cambridge unveils iPod-ready stereos

updated 01:25 pm EDT, Mon September 18, 2006

Four Cambridge Stereos

The sea change in stereo systems brought about by digital audio is becoming apparent through new stereos announced by Creative's affiliate company Cambridge SoundWorks today. Of the four new systems that are part of the launch, only one of them includes the once-commonplace CD player. All of them, however, include an auxiliary input for portable music players. Two models show the immediate result of the legal settlement between Apple and Creative: the Radio 735 ($300) and Radio CD 745 ($400, pictured) include an external iPod dock that relays music to the stereo's speakers. A wireless remote can control basic iPod functions. Both models are similar with the exception of the 745's CD player with MP3 playback support. Cambridge is also shipping two radio-focused systems in the form of the Radio 820HD ($300) and Radio 705 ($120). The former is the company's first stereo to support the new HD Radio terrestrial broadcast format and doubles as an AM/FM clock radio. The latter is a retro-style AM/FM radio with a rotary dial in place of an LCD. Both Radio CD models are shipping in October; the radio-only models are reserved for November.
