Chestnut Hill Sound has introduced George, a new high-end tabletop iPod sound system. George features a built-in iPod dock, an AM/FM radio with bandless tuning, and an alarm clock system. The system has a removable front panel LCD screen that serves as a wireless remote with full iPod functionality, including the ability to browse music on your iPod by artists, albums, songs and playlists. George will be available next week for $549. A charging stands and a consumer-installable, no subscription HD radio tuner will also be sold separately.

This thing looks NASTY!  The remote alone is worth the price of admission.  I’m a Tivoli guy, but if I was in the market, I’d give this thing a serious look.

$549 for little table top speaker system?  I must be missing something.

the remote detaches from the base, and displays the content of your ipod. and apparently the sound quality is top-notch. see the crave article.

Saw and heard it yesterday at MacWorld: I’m a total convert.  It was the most intersting iPod speaker system there.
