Griffin Amplifispeakers

iPod accessory maker Griffin Technology has unveiled its new Amplifi iPod speaker range, a 2.1 sound system designed for Apple's iPod that features an acoustically tuned wooden enclosure. The device comes with six iPod adapters that accommodate all dockable iPods, as well as a 3.5mm stereo input jack to support other digital media players. Sound is delivered through two 2.75-inch neodyme front firing high/midrange drivers and a 5-inch woofer with a bass reflex port. A large volume control knob is situated on the front of the unit surrounded by a blue glow, and a six function slim remote allows users to control the unit from a distance. Griffin says the Amplifi will be available next year for $150.



Griffin plans to launch a second speaker system codenamed 'Voyager,' a portable unit with an adjustable docking pad. Suitable for all dockable iPods, the device features a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery and a protective rubber enclosure for the portable media player. Users can synchronize the iPod while it is inside the unit courtesy of a dock connector which hides when the iPod when not in use. The Voyager is designed with portability in mind, collapsing down for carrying under the arm and standing up to play music using the built-in battery. The device includes an AC adapter to recharge the battery, and is also slated for shipment next year at $130.
