Princeton i-Tube Speakers
Princeton has released a new speaker dock system in Japan which it believes is ideal for not just iPods, but computers as well. Its i-Tube has a cylindrical housing for its two 8-watt satellites that can fit directly underneath a computer screen; the system was designed to fit perfectly underneath an Apple Cinema Display, according to Princeton. Importantly, says Princeton, the i-Tube also has a 16-watt subwoofer for extra bass response even in these small environments. The externalized iPod dock included with the system can either be charged and synchronized directly with a Mac or PC through a USB connection, and can also exist as a stand-alone bookshelf stereo. Music from an attached iPod can be controlled through either large control buttons on the dock itself or a wireless remote. Available in black or a silver and white combination, the i-Tube is currently shipping with open pricing in Japan. A gallery is available after the jump.
