Yamaha TSX-140 gets IntelliAlarm feature

Yamaha has just announced its latest iPod dock, the TSX-140. Its unique feature is said to be the IntelliAlarm that gradually fades in music as to not jolt sleepers awake. The dock is compatible with Apple's iPod touch and iPhone 3G, 3GS and 4, and has a USB port for playing MP3 and WMA files from a thumb drive. An AM/FM radio is likewise built-in.

The sound is delivered through two 3.5-inch ported bass reflex speakers. Users can sync their Apple devices when docked thanks to a mini USB connector as well. An ambient light sensor will adjust the illumination levels of the display and backlit controls that let users choose the source, adjust volume and radio presets, alarm clock and equalizer functions.

The TSX-140 will be available in black, brick and gray, with each color priced at $400. [via HotHardware]

    Unique feature?

    IntelliAlarm is pretty weak as a unique feature, considering that fading music in on wake is something that iHome alarm clocks have had since... well, since their very first one many years ago.

    iHome?

    Maybe it's the way I my ears boot-up, but like @facebook_Andy said, I'm pretty sure my iHome wakes me up the very same way and has been doing so for many moons.
