Diasonic iPod Speakers
Japanese electronics maker Diasonic said today that it hopes to address the common lack of flexibility found in most iPod audio systems with its newly announced iPod Dynamic Speakers. While the stereo can remain in one piece for travel or a better use of space, both of the 3-watt satellites can detach from the base to deliver better stereo separation. Accordingly, the Dynamic Speakers also include a button to toggle an enhanced stereo effect. A bass boost feature also improves the low-end frequency response. In portable mode, the speakers can play for up to 8 hours using four AA batteries; plugging the system into an AC power outlet saves battery and can charge the iPod. Diasonic's latest system is compatible with all dockable iPods through a universal adapter and ships in black or white trim for $68 US. Click through for an image of the detached setup.
