Sony iPod Dock Speaker Systems Announced


Sony Debuts iPod and iPhone Compatible Boombox, HD Radio With iTunes Tagging, CD Clock Radio and Docking Speaker

Sony today is taking the wraps off four audio products that work with current dockable iPod and iPhone™ devices.

The new CD clock radio (model ICF-CD3iP), boombox (model ZS-S4iP), table top HD Radio™ with iTunes Tagging (model XDR-S10HDiP), and docking speaker (model SRS-GU10iP) let you enjoy music from either iPod or iPhone. All four products are part of the Made for iPod and Works with iPhone programs.

Rise and Shine

The ICF-CD3iP device is Sony’s first CD clock radio with a hidden dock for iPod and iPhone devices. It gives users multi-function flexibility that enables them to listen, wake and fall asleep to their iPhone or iPod, CDs or radio in the form of a small footprint.

Featuring a large, highly visible liquid crystal display, this clock radio charges both iPod and iPhone devices. It also includes a remote control that provides full access to the menu of music functions. It has a compact, vertical “floating” design that hides the docking station, offers CD R/RW playback, and has an AM/FM digital tuner.

Tunes On The Go
For iPod and iPhone users who want to experience their music out loud, Sony is introducing its first boombox that works with both devices. The ZS-S4iP boombox adds iPhone compatibility and enhanced sound quality through its Mega Bass Sound system.

The dock on this new boombox secures and charges your iPod or iPhone while on the go, and features a removable cover so you can directly control iPod touch and iPhone. A wireless remote allows full menu control for your CD, radio and the music function of iPod or iPhone. The unit also offers 20 AM and 10 FM radio presets.

HD Radio for Your Ears
The XDR-S10HDiP is Sony’s first HD Radio with iTunes Tagging that is compatible with the newest generation of 3G iPhone devices, as well as iPod players. It solves a need for those who want to experience their music out loud, with rich bass and simulated surround sound.

This new product also charges your device while providing the benefits of HD Radio, including multi-casting (which offers new FM channels, more music, news and sports) and clear, crisp sound — all subscription free. The radio also includes iTunes Tagging, which lets you tag the songs you like on the radio, for future download to your iPod player. It also features auxiliary input, as well as 20 AM and FM radio presets.

Dock Me Up
Sony’s elegantly designed SRS-GU10iP docking speaker offers high quality audio and a piano black wood finish. Unlike most docking speakers for iPod players, this new speaker system is compatible with the newest generation of 3G iPhone devices as well.

The system also features bass sound and a remote commander for convenient access. It charges both the iPod and iPhone units, includes an auxiliary input, and supports AC/DC operation (batteries not included).

Pricing and Availability
The ZS-S4iP boombox will be available in October for about $100 in black and white. The ICF-CD3iP CD clock radio will be available later this month for about $100. The XDR-S10HDiP HD table radio will also be available this month for about $180, as will the SRS-GU10iP Sony iPhone/iPod docking speaker for about $150.

Pre-orders for all four products are now being accepted at The ZS-S4iP boombox, ICF-CD3iP CD clock radio and SRS-GU10iP docking speaker will be available at Sony Style stores across the county. All four products will be available online and at military base exchanges and at authorized dealers nationwide.
