Yamaha releases iPod docks

Yamaha has entered the iPod accessory market, introducing four new iPod specific audio products, the PDX-50, PDX-30, TSX-130, and TSX-120. Each model also aims to provide high-quality sound using a recently designed digital amplifier. The PDX50 model includes wireless control using Air-Wired technology, supposedly transmitting audio in a lossless stream. The 'dock less' system wirelessly connects to a small transmitter attached to the iPod without pairing common in other wireless connectors.

The PDX-30 has the same design as the PDX-50, but includes a docking station for the iPod on top. It comes in a variety of colors including black, blue, grey, and pink. Both PDX models are compatible with the iPod touch, iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPod nano and iPod mini, and 4th and 5th generation iPod classics.

The TSX models differ from the PDX models, functioning as clock-radio entertainment systems without wireless capabilities. The TSX-130 includes a 30W stereo output, 8cm speakers and digital signal processing. The unit includes an iPod dock, CD player, DAB and FM radio, and USB connectivity that is compatible with MP3 and WMA formats. Alternatively, the TSX-120 includes an iPod dock, DAB and FM radio, alarm, and mini jack options for other music players. Both models are compatible with the iPod touch, iPod nano and iPod mini, iPhone, iPhone 3G, and 4th and 5th generation iPod classics.

The PDX-50 is not yet listed in the US online store, but the PDX-30, TSX-120 and TSX-130 are available for $200, $400, and $450 respectively.
