Yes, the glut of new iPod-friendly products continues (and we’ve not finished yet) with Mustek’s new Paragon range of iPod home stereo systems, avilable as either a compact tabletop model (DT260) or in a large tower design (TW450), both available in black and white.
As you’d expect, both incorporate the iPod universal docking cradle for plugging in Video iPod, iPod nano, iPod photo, iPod mini or earlier FireWire iPods. The systems recharge your iPod while it plays your tunes through the three-way shielded speaker system and built-in subwoofer. A wireless infrared remote lets you navigate your iPod music library, as well as to advance and rewind tracks, mute the sound, or control volume and power.
The TW450 is a floor-standing unit with 45W amplifier and 5.25-inch, dual-coil subwoofer. A port located on the back of the speaker allows for an RCA line-in for connecting to traditional audio sources. The DT260 is a mini-boombox and features USB 2.0 and FireWire to sync a connected iPod directly with your computer’s iTunes list, There’s also an audio input for use with other MP3 players or audio sources.
