Onkyo readies high-end iPod speaker dock

Onkyo CBX-Z iPod Dock

Adding to the ranks of high-end iPod audio, Onkyo today unveiled its CBX-Z10 and CBX-Z20 speaker docks. Either merges both a CD player and an iPod cradle so listeners have the choice of new and old formats from the same device. Although driven by modest 10-watt stereo speakers, the company's in-house AERO system uses passive acoustics inside the cabinet to enhance bass response while also bringing out more detail in vocals and other higher ranges. The Z20 in particular also has a larger cabinet design that further amplifies the sound and includes an extra damper to cut down on vibration.

The white Z10 and black Z20 both serve as clock radios with AM/FM tuning, an alarm function, and presets. Owners can also connect the stereo to a TV through an RCA cable to display images from video-capable iPods or attach third-party audio via a single aux-input jack. Onkyo ships both models to Japan on August 24th for $362 (Z10) and $421 (Z20) but has not said whether it will bring either system to North America as it has other personal stereos. [via Impress]
