Genius Game MP3 Speakers
Genius this morning launched a pair of speaker sets targeted at the budget crowd. The SP-i200 (pictured) caters to iPods and other portable music players with a headphone output jack, including those on the road: a relatively unique adjustable stand can either lay flat for travel and tight spaces, or else sit the speakers at a more natural angle for listening. The 6-watt stereo is also built for vacations with 10 hours of full-volume music through four AAA batteries. It ships in black or white for $30.
Also available today is the SW i-2.1 1100 for more stationary users. This 2.1-channel system has 28 watts of sustained power and comes with a wired remote, a separate line-in jack for portable music players, and a headphone output for listening during quieter hours. It should also ship today in black or white colors for $50.
