Elecom Wooden iPod Dock
Choosing an added sense of style over complexity, the Japanese firm Elecom today announced a new iPod speaker dock that can fit into even more conservative homes. Its ASP-WR8 series is one of the few stereos with a true wood cabinet, which Elecom says should improve audio quality as well as appearance. Three different finishes are available, including walnut (pictured). Speaker functions are straightforward with two 5.5-watt satellites being driven by any dockable iPod or the audio from an auxiliary input jack. An infrared remote is included. Elecom is shipping the ASP-WR8 in Japan for the equivalent of $135 US. Click through for photos of the additional finishes.
