DK-A1 DK-A10BKUpload

Sharp is previewing two audio iPod™ docking systems that allow users to play music directly from any iPod while recharging simultaneously. With a sleek and innovative design, these units make a stylish addition into almost any decor with color options that include eye-catching, glossy white (models DK-A1 and DK-A10) and sophisticated piano-black (models DK-A1BK and DK-A10BK).

“The i-Elegance system marries the convenience and flexibility of the iPod with Sharp’s expertise in high quality small audio systems,” said Jason Gastman, senior audio product marketing manager, Sharp. “With its elegant design and enhanced sound features, the compact i-Elegance system is a great-looking, great sounding system, perfect for any music lover.”

The portable units feature full-range bass reflex speakers with built-in side-firing subwoofers that illuminate and produce low-end frequencies that ensure a deep bass sound. The i-Elegance iPod systems also feature an electronic equalizer that customizes the sound based on the music genre and has a six-step mode to accurately adjust the sound for any type of music. For optimum sound quality, the units offer Esound, a digital signal processing technology that improves the quality of compressed digital music. By enhancing the sound frequency and increasing the sound pressure, Esound mode corrects deterioration to the sound quality that most compressed music experiences.

Designed with slim rounded edges, the new stereo systems can fit into small spaces, such as a shelf or side table. An AM/FM tuner provides radio playback for both models with the ability to program up to 32 favorite radio stations. The DK-A10 and DK-A10BK add a front-loading CD slot that plays standard CDs in addition to CD-R/RW with MP3 and WMA files. Convenience features include a thin remote control, a built-in alarm clock and a sleep timer function so users can snooze or wake up to their favorite music.

The i-Elegance iPod docking systems will work on all generations of the Apple iPod. The units include an adaptor that guarantees a snug fit for any iPod model.

Pricing and availability:

  • The DK-A1 and DK-A1BK will be available in May for a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $229.99.
  • The DK-A10 and DK-A10BK will be available in April for a MSRP of $329.99.
