Virtually all of Logitech's current iPod-friendly speakers are meant as portable units for the office or the family vacation. Today, however, Logitech joined rivals such as Apple, Bose, and Klipsch by introducing two new iPod speaker sets designed primarily as home stereos. The $299 AudioStation is relatively unique in its class for truly separated stereo speakers that each have their own tweeters and woofers. The design delivers 80W of sustained power and also features a digital AM/FM clock radio. For $100, the AudioStation Express is meant more for personal listening and removes the clock radio in favor of a smaller, single-piece shape that can run on batteries if necessary. Both AudioStation versions have wireless remotes and input jacks for other audio devices, and will ship in October.
