Yamah iPod mini systems
At the CEATEC show earlier this week, Yamaha's electronics arm introduced two new mini audio systems with integrated iPod/iPhone docking stations, the TSX-120 and TSX-130. Both systems also share a built-in FM radio tuner and the same 15WRMS x 2 amplifier to drive the pair of 3.1-inch speakers. The main difference between the two is the TSX-130's inclusion of a CD drive, USB port for reproducing audio files from flash drives or other MP3 players, along with a black color option that includes a darker wood grain finish as well. The TSX-120 replaces the USB port with a more common 3.5mm stereo jack.
The TSX-130's CD drive can play burned CDs and supports MP3 and WMA files. Clock and alarm functionality is built into either new system.
The TSX-120 and TSX-130 will launch in Japan in early December, with the former priced at the equivalent of about $286 and the latter at about $382. [via Impress]
