A Jukebox for the iPod Generation

Jukebox for iPods

There are plenty of audiophiles who cling to older music equipment. Some will say it sounds better; others just miss the days when the hardware was treated less as cold technology and more as a work of art. Doubtlessly, though, many of these music traditionalists will privately admit that older isn't necessarily better. A classic jukebox could only hold a few dozen songs at best. Pacific Rim Technologies is betting that at least a few of these conflicted music lovers will be interested in merging the old and new into one unit, the Jukebox Station. While Wurlitzer was the first to release an iPod-ready jukebox, Pacific Rim's new system is more advanced. In addition to letting users play music from the iPod (or CDs, or FM radio), the Jukebox Station also has RCA and S-Video output to let you see photos and videos on newer iPod models. The $700 price should be easily manageable for anyone who wants a stereo that doubles as a focal point of the room. It starts shipping in early October. See a complete photo after the jump.
