Behringer has announced that it will unveil its new iNuke Boom docking speaker system for iPod and iPhone at the 2012 CES, likely claiming the titles of heaviest, costliest, and most powerful iPod speaker in the process. Measuring eight feet wide by four feet tall and weighing 700 pounds, the iNuke Boom features a top-mounted iPod/iPhone dock, and will supply its speakers with over 10,000 Watts of power. Further details of the speaker have yet to be revealed; the iNuke Boom will carry an MSRP of $30,000.

Wait a minute, I thought April Fools was on April 1st!  I love my high-end audio, but holy crap, I would think that is just a bit wee over the top?  For that kind of money, I’d rather get a pair of Klipsch Palladium P-39F floor speakers at $20K a pair and still leave $10K for a very nice amp.  I’d be willing to bet is would sound much better as well for that amount of money.  Still, I would love to hear this thing - although I wonder if the operative word is “Boom” vs actual across-the-board sound quality.

This is just plain stupid. A high end docking station that plays lossy files? Why not at least include a transport system to play CD files also?

@1: April Fools is exactly what came to mind when I saw this!

@2: Any high-end system can play lossy files, depends on what you use as input. An i-device doesn’t have to play lossy files, they’ll happily play ALAC format.

The picture of this thing is reminiscent of the old SNL sketch where “Steve Jobs” reveals increasingly smaller iPods!

I’m sure there’s some insecure hip-hop artist out there with a Cadillac Escalade who needs this to prove his manhood.
