Soloist Universal Media Dock for iPods, SIRIUS announced


Directed Electronics has introduced its Soloist Universal Media Dock, which employs interchangeable cradles to dock iPods and SIRIUS satellite radio receivers. The Soloist features SurfaceSound flat-panel speakers by NXT, a 10 watt-per-channel Tripath amplifier, a built-in alarm clock, and IR remote control. The system also offers auxiliary inputs, a headphone jack and USB connectivity. The Soloist, which will be available in September for $150, is compatible with all dock connecting iPods, the SIRIUS Sportster 4 and most newer SIRIUS plug-and-play receivers.

Is there some reason WHY comments aren’t allowed to be made to the Apple Profit misstatement? Using ‘restatement’ to describe this is corporate damage-control soft-pedaling, regardless of it’s AAPL or anyone else.

As for a dockable speaker system…when’s someone going to build one with REAL power that pushes SERIOUS AIR? Aside from buying into Geneva’s monopoint-source concept with their XL (to date I still haven’t figured out what exactly its specs-sketchy “6x100wpc” amp section is powering—I mean, the same “100w” to a tweeter as to a woofer?!?), are there any others out there?

this would be great since the wife listens to satellite all the time, and now with me getting her an ipod, the bet of both worlds.
