Teac has unveiled two attractive ultra-thin hi-fi systems – the CD-X10i and MC-DX22i – each featuring an iPod dock and each using NXT’s SurfaceSound technology to deliver a room-filling sound.
The CD-X10i features a detachable iPod dock, while the MC-DX22i has an integrated iPod dock – the docks are designed for use with all the latest iPod models, including the iPod nano and the video iPod. NXT’s SurfaceSound technology, operating through two wall-mountable flat panel stereo speakers, is claimed to deliver the full audio performance of a conventional loudspeaker – but without the bulk.
The head unit features a motorised vertical CD loading door, a multi-function LCD display with backlight and a digital clock with timer and sleep functions. There’s also a remote for the system and the iPod functionality. Both systems are also equipped with a stereo mini jack to input music from other digital players and feature CD-MP3/CD-R/RW playback and an AM/FM tuner with preset memory. There’s also a digital clock with timer and sleep functions.
Both systems are available later this month in the US. We’re still awaiting price and availability for the UK.
