Sony unwraps dual-dock iPod hi-fi

And other Xmas goodies

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Never one to let rivalry get in the way of a bob or two, Sony has rolled out its latest iPod-oriented speaker systems.

Sony ICF-CD3iP

Sony's ICF-CD3iP: plays CDs too

Take the ICF-CD3iP - no, please - which is a moon-faced clock-radio with a handy iPod dock attached to the side. If you're an iPod user who hasn't ripped all your CDs, then you'll be pleased to know the device also plays discs. Not got an iPod? It'll play MP3 CDs too.

Sony ICF-C1iPMK2

The ICF-C1iPMK2: more sober design

The ICF-C1iPMK2 is also a clock-radio, this time without the CD player and with a more sober design.

These two are joined by a pair of speaker systems: the SRS-GU10iP, which is your classic big-speaker-with-attached-dock affair, and the LBT-DJ2i, a full 2.1 hi-fi system that's iPod compatible.

Sony LBT-DJ2i

The LBY-DJ2i: double decker

Sony's pitching the LBT-DJ2i at budding mixers: it has two iPod docks, a CD player and various auxilliary inputs along with a cross-fader to keep the music flowing as you hop from source to source. The whole lot pumps out 450W of music power, Sony said.

Sony SRS-GU10iP

The SRS-GU10iP: boosted bass

And Sony’s Beat Blend feature "adds a layer of pre-programmed percussion, drum sounds and drum loops over the mix".

The SRS-GU10iP has a more modest output: 20W through its built-in stereo speaker system, with a bass boost for a richer sound.

Alas Sony didn't say when any of these items will appear on shop shelves, but we suspect it'll be well in time for Christmas. Santa has yet to come through with the prices, however.
