Two Griffin iPod Speakers

Griffin Technology today previewed its first iPod speaker systems, designed alternately for desktop and portable listening. The AmpliFi (pictured, $150) is a tabletop iPod speaker dock with a wooden enclosure to improve sound quality. Unlike most such systems, the AmpliFi will incorporate a 5-inch subwoofer to add bass response in addition to the mid-range and treble of the 2.75-inch satellites, according to iLounge. The system will include an infrared remote in addition to a built-in minijack input for the iPod shuffle and other audio sources. Also announced is the Voyager ($130), a portable speaker system that features a hard rubberized shell that both keeps the speakers upright when in use and folds on top to create a protective shell when not in use. Power when traveling is supplied through a lithium-ion battery instead of disposable batteries. The Voyager will also have support for audio-out and USB connections to attach to computers or external speakers, Griffin says. Both the AmpliFi and Voyager are planned for a first quarter 2007 launch.
