Nyko debuts Speaker Dock 2 for iPod

imageNyko Technologies has introduced the Speaker Dock 2, a new compact iPod speaker system. The dome-shaped system has a top mounted iPod cradle/stand and two acoustically balanced BDD Pro speakers. The Speaker Dock 2 works with all dockable iPod with a set of included adapters, and has a line-in port for using the speakers with other devices and older iPods. It is powered by 4 AA batteries or an included AC adaptor. The Speaker Dock 2 is available now for $100.

“The Speaker Dock 2 is a stylish, compact speaker system that lets users listen to their favorite tunes in crisp, clear stereo sound while charging their iPod at the same time,” says Nyko. “The speaker system is skillfully designed to match the aesthetic of the iPod, and is small enough to fit on your nightstand, bathroom or kitchen counter, shelf, desk, or anywhere space is limited. Now you can enjoy your music while cooking, taking a shower, getting ready, at work, or just hanging out.”

Anyone else think “G4 iMac” looking at this thing?

Looks like the cradle “might” be able to support any case that exposes the dock connector.  Width won’t be an issue, at least.

I had a chance to listen to this at Compusa and the sound isn’t too bad for what is worth.  If you are looking for a quick fix and just listening in your office or background music this would be it.  But if you are looking for a better bass response, look elsewhere.  But yeah, this reminds me of G4 iMac as well.  Looks kinda cool.  It would be nice if you can add a subwoofer with it, that would be cool and would add to the sound.  I would pay about 75.00 dollars for this.  99 still a little steep.  I much rather invest for iM7 for 189.00 from Costco.

Nice design…wonder where I’ve seen this before…

Okay, Nyko…not bad, if not entirely original, but I agree w/ Oliver about the apparent steep price. I may be missing something here, but it doesn’t seem worthy of a c-note.
