DAB-enabled iPod dock
A new iPod docking station and speaker system from InTempo features built-in dual band DAB digital and FM radio. DAB is a digital broadcasting spectrum used primarily in Europe that purportedly offers better audio fidelity and other enhanced features relative to FM. The new system is available in glossy "piano" black and has a 30 watt output, including a 15 watt subwoofer. The RDI is compatible with the iPod family and MP3 players and will play, sync and charge. The "DAB-dock" also has an alarm with sleep and snooze. All functionality, including the bass and treble, can be controlled either manually or with the 23-key remote control. The RDI retails at £129.99 (about $265) from Amazon, Comet and John Lewis. The RDI will not charge the iPod Shuffle.
