Sanyo intros iPod alarm clock, dual dock system
Sanyo on Wednesday introduced two new products made to work with Apple's docking iPods and iPhones, with its cube alarm clock radio, the DMP-P1, along with the dual dock music system, the DMP-692. Both can charge and play the audio content of the connected Apple devices. Either system has an AM/FM tuner, and users can choose to wake up to a preset station, the music from their Apple device or a buzzer. A sleep and snooze mode is also integrated.
The dual dock can accommodate two iPhones, two docking iPods, or a combination of both. There is also an aux-in port for adding other sources with a headphone jack. The DMP-692 also has a rear-mounted, passive subwoofer and includes a 20-function remote conveniently controls the iPod/iPhone or AM/FM radio.
The DMP-P1 will play and charge one iPod or iPhone, and there is also an aux input. While there is no subwoofer, Sanyo's BassXpander technology simulates a fuller frequency range.
Either new Sanyo docking system will be available late in October, with the cube alarm clock priced at $40 while the dual dock music system will cost $90.
