Kenwood Prodino minisystem

Kenwood on Tuesday announced the introduction of its new mini audio system, the Prodino, or CORE-A55. The 20W system does not have an optical drive or an FM tuner, relying on a wide range of external connections for its source files. Digital audio files stored on an SDHC, miniSDHC or microSDHC memory cards up to 32GB in capacity, where applicable, can be played back thanks to the Prodino's front-mounted SD card slot, while the back panel has a USB connection for linking to personal music players, USB flash drives and Windows PCs.

A digital optical input allows users to connect a digital tuner or other PCM digital signal to the Prodino. For a connection that nets CD-quality playback, there is an auxiliary input made up of a 3.5mm stereo jack that is compatible with any device with a similar headphone jack. Supported digital file formats include AAC, MP3 and WMA files.

When it launches in Japan early in November, Kenwood's Prodino will cost the equivalent of around $463, with an optional iPod docking station that costs another equivalent of $130. [via Akihabara]
