iPod-ready jukebox coming this Fall

image

Pacific Rim Technologies has announced a vintage-style jukebox featuring a built-in universal docking cradle for iPods. Designed and manufactured by Saffire-USA, the Jukebox Station features a wood enclosure, FM radio, CD player, LED lighting system, and comes with a 17-function IR remote control. The jukebox, which stands at over 3 feet tall, offers a 6-inch subwoofer, two magnetically shielded tweeters, and two mid-range drivers. The system can also connect video iPods to a TV with its rear S-video and RCA video connections. The Jukebox Station will be available in early October for a retail price of $700.

Judging by the size of the iPod, this looks to be about 3 feet tall or so?  It is kinda cool though.

Very cool!

My only comment though - why not put power and light switches on the back of the unit rather than the two huge buttons on the front?

They lost a couple of cool points with the silhouettes on the front.

great idea!

too bad that:
- it’s not “full sized”
- power and light buttons on front suck
- sucky silhouettes, but maybe the illustration can be changed easily

wondering how you actually control the ipod from the jukebox.
what are the buttons for? can you skip tracks, pause, browse through a playlist, change playlist, ...? if you have to open the jukebox, switch playlist, plug it on the dock and close the jukebox everytime, then it’s kinda sucky

Even though I like it, I think the consumer is the wrong Market.  How many consumer do you think would really pay $700 for this.  A couple of weeks ago, I was talking to a few friends asking them when did they think we would see iPod sytle juke boxes in places like pizzahut.  I think buisnesses will really go for this if they make a few refinements.

Yep…wrong market.  Should have been marketed to family restaurant establishments…or their distributers.  Just add a coin slot.

SWEET. Great price point. This is a great piece for Baby-boomers who will appreciate the nostalgic feeling to the concept overall, as well as playing into the cool-factor for younger generations. Cool because it looks old-school and utilizes contemporary tech.
I actually LIKE the fact that it’s not four or five feet tall; it will actually fit into a bedroom, studio apartment, or family room without needing two or three friends to haul it in, plus it should be an eye-catcher and good conversation piece without being completely overbearing in relation to the rest of the room. Should make a good Christmas present for my girlfriend.
