UKs New i-deck Ignites a British Invasion for the iPod Revolution

PICKERING, ONT — AUGUST 11, 2005 — Ask any historian and they’ll tell you that the first real British Invasion didn’t occur during the “one if by land, two if by sea” era; but when the Beatles brought the next wave of electrifying entertainment to pop culture junkies.

Now, stateside music lovers riding the wave of the latest tech revolution can soup up their iPods with the UK’s revolutionary i-deck. From the UK’s leading loudspeaker technology company, Monitor Audio, the i-deck transforms an iPod from a personal technology digital music player into a stereo sound system with audiophile quality and the sleek looks to match.

With a Euro-chic design that accommodates any decor, the i-deck’s separate speakers (7.5 high x 5.75 wide) produce breathtaking audio performance that belie their compact size. The i-deck’s functionality permits continuous playback when the user docks their iPod into the i-deck, so you no longer have to restart songs or playlists. Continuous Funk-tonality of mid-track playback is just one of a host of features that distinguishes the i-deck from other iPod docking stations. The i-deck sports a credit card sized RF remote that can control the i-deck from anywhere in the house and the unit also recharges iPods during playback.

The i-deck’s two-way speakers each have a bass driver and Monitor Audio’s trademark gold dome tweeter to create punchy bass and articulate high and mid frequency audio. The separate speakers can be placed next to the amplifier/dock or apart from it, giving listeners flexibility to set up the system in any room.

A perfect match for iPod, i-deck is provided with easily interchangeable bezels, making it an equally attractive home for iPod 3G, iPod 4G, iPod color, iPod mini and iPod Photo. A 30 pin port allows you to synchronize operation with your PC or Mac via USB or Firewire. An additional auxiliary input allows you to hook up a wide range of other equipment sources too, including iPod Shuffle, MiniDiscs, CD players, radios and more.

Designed and manufactured by Monitor Audio, a company with a 30-year reputation in building high-end loudspeakers, the i-deck retails at a price starting at $349.
