FIB2.0: Sonic Impact K1, 2 Monitor i-decks, Atlantic E GO debut


As just several of the brand-new iPod accessories debuted in The Free iPod Book 2.0, speaker makers Sonic Impact, Monitor Audio, and Atlantic have released first photos and details on the next generation of iPod audio systems.

Sonic Impact’s K1 (tentative name, $300) is the first combination video screen and speaker dock for the iPod, designed to add a large 7” monitor for viewing while you travel.


Monitor Audio’s i-deckcompact ($200) and i-deckplus ($300) take the company’s successful i-deck (iLounge rating: A-) formula to the next level. i-deckcompact is an all-in-one, less expensive version of i-deck, while i-deckplus is a three-piece, enhanced i-deck with integrated radio and on-screen RDS display.

imageAtlantic’s E GO ($200) is the iPod’s first totally water-submersible speaker system. Carried with a shoulder strap or mounted on its included stand, you can take it to the pool or beach and even fully dunk it in the water without fear of speaker or iPod damage.

For bigger photos and additional details, download The Free iPod Book 2.0, and turn to pages 8 and 9.

If the Sonic Impact K1 is a really decent price, like $150/£100 ish it will sell like hotcakes. Loads of people would want it at that price, unfortunately it’s double that and who knows, the next iPod may have a much larger screen.

I completely agree.  At $150 it would fly off the shelves.  I’ve been waiting for something like this to be released since they first introduced the video iPod.  I don’t agree with the high price though.  You can buy 7” screen portable DVD players for much cheaper then that, (some of which have an input port).  It doesn’t make any sense to me.

I completely disagree with the above comments.  Being that this product is suposed to have good audio combinded with the video screen, I will get one if the audio is truly good.  I still mainly use my i-Pod for music so having audio and video is very important to me.  If I can have both done well and only need one product when I travel, I’m in at $300.  I want quality….
