Sony intros iPod docking speaker system


In a sign that Sony has surrendered to the overwhelming popularity of the iPod, the company has introduced its first iPod-specific audio system. The Sony iPod Audio Docking Station CPF-IP001 ($250) is a compact unit for all dockable iPods. The system’s S-Master amplifier and external subwoofer “provide superior sound while the compact and lightweight design allows you to place this docking station in virtually any room of your home,” according to Sony. The system also comes with a wireless remote and a line input for use with other devices. [via TUAW]

Hey phil, they had that, but have stopped development of it, unless you were trying to be funny some how.

Wait, Sony made a camera that takes CF card, then they MADE CF cards, now this?

Is someone at Sony waking up to how much the gadget-loving world hates them?  Could they…could they be starting to listen to consumers?

Here’s to hoping.

While the acidic me would like to state that this is how Sony spells “defeat”, I will not say that and rather claim that Sony got an idea about how to actually make a product that people are more likely to buy.

Assimilation has begun. iPods now taking over all companies. Join us….Join us….Join us…

Well, Sony HAD to do something. If nothing else, catering to the iPod universe will bring some income in, so unlike way too many of their own DOA MP3 players. Considering the speculation over just how close to $2B US their gaming division is expected to lose this coming quarter thanks to the slow-selling PS3, the braintrust currently mismanaging Sony is probably even considering making HD-DVD players, if only to hope for another revenue stream.

However…considering the size of the Sony speaker unit in the image, does it once again seem like another example of ‘typically overpriced’ from them?

Somewhere I read this has some kind of digital amp. Anyone know about this?
