Intempo iPod Stereo Tower
Intempo has released the iFi-01 luxury iPod stereo system. Known in the US as the mStation Stereo Tower, the iFi-01 is built as a nod to classic stereo systems with modern design. The freestanding system is constructed vertically to save space but is made of lightweight aluminum to fit into more contemporary home theaters. The speakers also help create a virtual surround sound effect, Intempo says: both 15-watt satellites rotate to add further direction to the sound. A 30-watt subwoofer at the center is said to add appreciable bass response. The system is compatible with all dockable iPods and can also attach to other audio devices. Already shipping, the Stereo Tower is available in the UK for $425 and from mStation in the US for $300.
