Intempo has gone for a sleek, curvy look on its new Fusion, the successor to last year’s popular RDI-03 iPod/DAB speaker system.
The sculptured design means that whichever of the iPod family you pop in the cradle, it’s still easy to access its controls.
The unit itself features two 25 watt speakers (five watts shy of the RDI-03) and a built-in subwoofer, which should hopefully give improved bass response. It also features both DAB and FM radio, so really is the all round digital entertainer (unless you want to use shiny discs, of course), and can be used as an alarm clock.
Control is via tactile buttons on the unit itself, or the full-functioned remote control unit.
If there’s one thing this world isn’t short of, it’s iPod docks, so a unit has to be pretty special to stand out. The Intempo Fusion looks pretty good, sounds good (at least on paper), and does radio too, which puts it pretty high on the list of contenders.
Coming in mid-September, it will cost £99.
