New Griffin iPod speakers

Griffin Technology continued its slew of product announcements on Monday with the announcement of its new lineup of three powered iPod-based speaker systems. Griffin's Evolve (pictured at right) is a new iPod-ready wireless speaker system with powerful, crystal clear sound. It features a flat charging base that holds an iPod in a Universal Dock and charging stations for two cube-shaped speakers on both sides. Powered by a lithium-Ion battery pack, the speakers can be easily charged (without wires) to provide up to 10 hours of music. Griffin also said that each speaker cube features its own on/off power switch and automatic sleep mode for power conservation. Evolve features a wireless range of more than 150 feet and includes an RF-based remote for easy control of iPod functions. Evolve will be available by summer for $350.



The company also debuted Amplifi, a new 2.1 desktop speaker system that puts out a roomful of sound. Featuring wooden construction for warm, rich tones, the system offers two 2.75-inch tweeter/midrange plus a 5-inch woofer and bass reflex port for balanced, full sound. It also includes its own remote, AC adapter and six Universal Dock adapters for support for a range of iPod models. Amplifi is expected to ship in February for $150.

Finally, Griffin's Journi is billed as first truly portable iPod speaker system: "Carry it under your arm like a book. When you get where you're going, the tough, attractive WrapStand opens up and wraps around to create a sturdy stand. Slide your iPod into the adjustable-depth pod bay, and slip the handy remote out of its carrying niche in the back." Journi will also ship by summer for $130.
