Yamaha introduced the PDX-11 portable player dock for iPod or iPhone available in four colors–white, dark blue, green and black. The battery or AC powered PDX-11 has a striking and rugged-looking octagonal horn-shaped design with a perforated steel grill designed for overall toughness. A sturdy “grab it and go” roll bar chrome handle makes it easy to take the PDX-11 anywhere you want to enjoy your favorite tunes–from the home or dorm room, to a party on the beach, the back yard or game-day tailgating.
The iPod/iPhone dock is on the top of the unit, and music is played back via an exceptionally powerful 4-inch woofer that drives extremely accurate, kicking bass and stunning midrange, while a separate tweeter provides crystal clear high frequencies.
The PDX-11 can also be connected to a PC, Mac or other digital audio player via a mini jack (3.5mm) on the back of the dock.
“The PDX-11 was conceived by Yamaha as a portable playback product that mirrors the philosophy of the iPod itself — to give consumers the freedom to enjoy and share music absolutely anywhere, through a stylish device that is compact, easy and fun to use,” said Tom Sumner, president, Yamaha Electronics Corporation. “There is no other comparably priced device on the market that approaches what the PDX-11 offers in sound quality, portability, rugged design and aesthetics. People who see it will want it. People who hear it will want it even more.”
