XtremeMac iPhone 3G Docks

Imation's Apple-friendly label XtremeMac today launched a trio of speaker docks all tuned to support iPhones, including the iPhone 3G. The Luna Voyager clock radio is new to the range and is small enough to be carried on trips. In a unique touch, the system can set its time from an iPhone rather than rely on manual settings. It also has its own battery backup both for the clock and the buzzer/iPhone/iPod alarm to prevent a power outage from affecting the Voyager overnight. While not as powerful as larger systems, the portability should help drop the price to $90 for the miniature Luna's November launch.

Other systems are refinements of existing systems. The Luna X2 updates the company's better-known clock radio and continues to carry an unusually high-powered stereo speaker system that puts out clearer iPhone audio across an entire room. It also has more advanced nap, sleep, and snooze timers than the Voyager and supports both four FM presetss as well as an aux-in jack for non-Apple devices or the iPod shuffle. A November release is also scheduled for the X2, which will ship for $130.

The Tango X2 is the most powerful system of the three and brings 2.1-channel audio to XtremeMac's iPhone docks; it also produces FM radio, with three presets, but has individually adjustable bass and treble controls. Aux-in is also supported on the Tango when it arrives in the same November timeframe as the other speakers but at an elevated $150 price.
