Tango Studio iPod speakers
XtremeMac has introduced a new audio system for use with the iPod. Calling it the Tango Studio, the company advertises full-range stereo sound, which is powered by two 3-inch loudspeakers. Designed for the budget-minded iPod owner, it lacks the subwoofer of its more expensive sibling, the Tango. However, the Studio is more compact which allows for more versatile placement. The unit features a built-in FM tuner, an auxiliary line in, a remote, a retractable dock connector, and a simple no-frills look. The LCD, which displays the FM station, volume level or input source, shines through from behind the cloth speaker grill. Controls are also located on the top of the sound system, in case of a misplaced remote.
"You get a powerful two-way speaker system compatible with any iPod, a radio and a wireless remote all for $80." XtremeMac CEO Gary Bart said. "It's a phenomenal value."
The Tango Studio carries a price tag of $80, and XtremeMac is taking pre-orders starting today, with retail outlets receiving stock "in the coming weeks".
