Sony iPod speaker system
Sony has expanded its line of audio devices with the CMT-LX30iR, an entry-level speaker system that offers a dock for iPhones or iPods and a USB connection. A slot-load MP3 player is also provided, with support for MP3 playback, along with an AM/FM tuner and line in. The speakers each offer 5W of output, and users can select from several EQ presets including rock, pop, jazz and flat.
Up to 20 FM and 10 AM presets can be used, while status information is displayed on a single-line blue LCD. Controls are also provided for USB devices and the system allows direct CD to USB sync recording.
The CMT-LX30iR is currently listed at Amazon Germany for 161 Euros (~$200 USD), although pricing information for a domestic launch has yet to be announced. [via Sony Insider]
