Since 2004, the popularity of iPod speaker systems has grown and the competition among speaker manufacturers has increased. And here’s yet another example of a company that resorts to the Apple Dock sell-out – Sharp. Yes, Sharp got two new iPod docking systems, designed for headphone-free music on-the-go – the DK-AP7P and the DK-AP8P.
These small yet powerful devices feature a 2.1-channel speaker system that houses all of the needed components for an enjoyable listening experience, including the main drivers and subwoofer. They allow users to play music directly from any iPod or iPhone through the unit’s full-range bass reflex speakers with HDSS [high definition sound standard] sound technology while recharging the unit simultaneously. And for optimum sound, the units offer ESound – a digital signal processing technology that improves the quality of compressed digital music.
With up to six hours of battery operation and an AC adapter, these latest gadgets for your iPod and iPhone are truly a portable solution to enjoying high-quality audio from any location. Both models also include a video output so that when connected to a TV, users can enjoy their favorite iPod/iPhone videos and photos on a larger screen. And not only that! For extra versatility, each unit also features a 3.5mm stereo audio input for use with other audio MP3 players or PC audio. The only thing that sets them apart is their design.
The larger, more powerful DK-AP8P has a very unique design. An IR wireless touch panel remote control on the DK-AP8P adds flexibility and convenience, acting as a magnetic cover when not in use, while the DK-AP7P boasts a foldable design to keep your iPod or iPhone safe when on-the-go. The DK-AP8P and DK-AP7P will be available in a glossy black finish this month for $189.99 and $129.99, respectively.
