Parrot stereo dock, audio

Spreading out announcements for extra publicity, Parrot has revealed two more devices to be shown at Monday's CES expo. The DS3120 is a home stereo system that, on its own, can only play FM radio, or music from loaded SD cards and attached USB drives; the USB port also allows accepts media players and notebooks however, and the main features of the system are Bluetooth A2DP streaming, plus a line-in port specifically geared for iPods.

Operating through Bluetooth, users can not only listen to music but make and receive phonecalls, thanks to a built-in microphone. The stereo's 1.8-inch screen also lets people browse contacts, and view artist, album and track information. The satellites produce 20W of power.

The DS1120s are a set of wireless speakers, designed primarily to be used with Bluetooth A2DP audio sources; however, a Bluetooth 2.0/USB dongle is included as backup, and conventional music sources can connect through an RCA input jack. Total RMS power is 30W. The DS1120s should ship to Europe and the US in the second quarter of 2008, for $280; the DS3120 will ship in the same timeframe, for $250.
