Kenwood IP300 iPod dock

Sound specialist Kenwood has developed a new iPod audio dock with an unusual shape. The speakers for the AS-IP300 are built into a special "wing," separate from the main body; though this is mostly an aesthetic choice, the spread of the satellites aids in the delivery of simulated 3D sound. Two channels are present, powered by a 1.9W amplifier. A remote controls major playback functions, and the dock should fit all full-sized iPods from the fourth generation onwards, as well as Minis and third-generation Nanos. Non-Apple players are supported through an auxiliary stereo input.

Power is supplied either through an AC power adapter, or four AA batteries, the latter providing up to eight hours of audio with 3D sound off. The dock should launch later this month in Japan, at a price of 15,000 yen ($139). It is unknown when or if the dock will come to North America. [via Impress Watch]
