Edifier iF500 iPod dock
Edifier recently announced it has now made its iF500 iPod dock entertainment system available in North America. The large dome of the iF500 houses five separate speakers and is made with vibration and resonance control in mind. The device, which was launched in Europe earlier this year, can accommodate iPods and iPhones, as well as other portable audio players via their headphone jacks thanks to an auxiliary input.
Each speaker produces 10W, while the 5.75-inch subwoofer has 32W of power. There is also a digital FM tuner built into the iF500, and all functions are controlled via LED-lit controls around the base of the device. The iF500 is available now and priced at $249.
