Logitech has announced the X-240 computer speaker system, which features an audio control center that serves as a cradle for an iPod or similar device. “With plug-and-play functionality, the X-240 speaker system allows people to dock their digital device by simply plugging it into the cradle,” says Logitech. “When their device of choice is docked, people can charge it and sync or play their favorite digital music. And when not in use, the cradle can be stored flush with the control pod.” The Logitech X-240 system ($50; April) includes specialized trays for the iPod and Microsoft Zune. The speakers feature high-excursion satellite drivers, a ported down-firing subwoofer and dynamic, real-time bass equalization.

Awesome. An iPod dock that charges and syncs your iPod that comes with a speaker system costing $50 dollars? Thats pretty awesome, because Apple’s iPod Dock costs like 40 dollars where I live and no speakers come with it.

Wow, that is a heck of a price.  If they sound halfway decent, I can see this selling to students and people with small apartments, etc.  I might even pick it up for the bedroom.  Since I have always liked Logitech’s sound for computer speakers, odds are this is the best 50 i can spend on my ipod…

The original JBL On Stage will probably sound just as good, is much smaller, more portable, and isn’t much more ($60).

@Soup Nazi.
I don’t mean to detract from your statement, but the Apple Dock features an iR Sensor and Video Out.
For people who wish to hook their iPod upto a Decent Sound System, it is Perfect.
The Logitech system here is probably a lot better than the most of the other similarly priced Speaker Systems, but it is a completely different beast to the Apple Dock.

Kinda lame. The specs are quite a bit weaker than the X-230 system (smaller subwoofer driver, only one driver per satellite compared to two in X-230)... But nice with the dock and all. But still, considering how long X-230 has been out they should be able to give these speakers similar specs at the same price.
Confusing way to name it aswell…
