iPod, HD radio stereos
Polk on Thursday launched its new, mainstream Polk Audio Designs label with the miDock10, a high-performance speaker for all dockable iPods, and the miDock Studio which is larger and "more elegantly fits in with its supported fifth-generation iPods and iPod nanos," according to Electronista. The miDock10 stereo has two 3.25-inch, full-range drivers that produce higher-quality sound compared to most systems at its size and speaker unit is also transportable: in addition to featuring handles on either side for carrying, the miDock10 will work independently on eight C-cell batteries. It also features input and headphone jacks for alternate sources or headphones as well as a USB port for sycing to Macs and PCs.
The miDock 10 is on sale now for $200 through Radio Shack and $180 through the company's website, while the slightly larger miDock Studio will be available in other retail shops by April for $200. The company also introduced the HDX3, a two-channel stereo that supports the HD Radio format for both AM and FM.
