Polk Ships iSonic Stereo

Most bookshelf stereo systems are deliberately unambitious in their abilities; auxiliary input alone is still quite rare in a class that is often considered entry-level by stereo manufacturers. Just the opposite can be said of Polk's new iSonic unit. While its extremely ambitious design had introduced a significant delay in its arrival, even now the iSonic is very appealing to audiophiles. It's effectively designed to replace several systems at once: it has the CD, clock, and AM/FM radio functions common to many such players, but can also play DVD movies through its RCA or S-video outputs, tune HD terrestrial radio, and accept XM Satellite Radio through external adapters. Appropriately, the Polk stereo also has an auxiliary input jack for iPods or other outside audio connections. Newly shipping, this four-speaker ultimate stereo is shipping for $599.
