Maxell iPod Speakers
Maxell today said it has revealed its first iPod speaker system. The MXSP-1000 uses its bar design to its advantage, according to the company, by supporting wall mounts for small apartments and other areas where available space is a priority. Its low profile is equally well-suited for tabletops or resting underneath computer displays. Supporting all dockable iPods through a top-mounted connector as well as an auxiliary input jack for other music players, the MXSP-1000 produces 9.6 watts of stereo output which the company claims is augmented by the use of aluminum cones. The new Maxell speakers ship in black, silver, and white colors for $85 US in Japan. No details were given of a North American launch. See a complete photo after the jump.
