Logitech debuts new portable speaker systems

Logitech has introduced two new portable speakers systems—one specifically designed for use with the iPod and one for any MP3 player.

imageThe mm50 iPod speaker system uses Max-X high-excursion drivers, which include neodymium magnets and three inch pressure drivers, to provide “fully balanced audio, maximum bass response and minimal distortion.” The mm50 features a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that lasts up to 10 hours, and you can simultaneously recharge the iPod battery and speaker battery when powered by the included AC adapter. The system works with any iPod with a Dock Connector port and also comes with a travel case and a wireless remote control. The mm50 will ship in September for $149.99.

imageLogitech’s mm28 portable speaker system features an ultra-thin design and can be used with the iPod and any other device with a standard 3.5mm audio jack. Measuring less than 1.25-inches thin, the mm28 speakers use stereo NXT flat-panel technology that produces “rich tones and lush bass.” The speaker system can be powered by either the included AC adapter or by four AA batteries—it can last up to 45 hours on a single set of batteries. The mm28 will be available in September for $79.99.

That mm50 looks like a great boombox-type system—rechargeable and not bulky. Can’t make myself pay that price though.

The mm50 seems interesting, specially for its lithium-ion battery. Does anyone know the power of this speaker? I couldn’t find it anywhere. How many watts?

Pardon my ignorance, but what in blazes is this Logitech ‘pressure driver’ technology? Don’t ALL speaker drivers work, in a sense, as a pressure driver?

I have been using a first generation i-Pod for some time now and am very happy with its function, etc.  As computers change all the new accessories change also.
I am looking for a device like the i-Boom to attach my old i-Pod to and make my tunes portable.  The i-Boom and other sound devices use the dock connector which my i-Pod does not have.  Is there a boombox like device that I can easily attach my thicker, older 20GB i-Pod?

Thanks,
Dale
