Sony reveal trio of new iPhone / iPod speaker docks

Share

sony-x60ip.jpgSony have revealed details on three new iPhone and iPod speaker docks as part of their ever-growing RDP range. The RDP-X60iP, the RDP-M5iP and the RDP-M15iP will all hit shops this summer.

Designed with home use in mind, the RDP-X60iP is likely to grab the most interest from music fans thanks to its wireless streaming capabilities. The first Sony dock to employ a Bluetooth connection, you’ll be able to stream music from all sorts of MP3 players and mobile phones to the speaker as it’s not locked into Apple’s proprietary AirPlay standard. It should sound relatively beefy too thanks to a 20W+20W output power and two 76mm loudspeakers with twin port system and super-long duct.

The next two docks are more focussed on portability. The RDP-M15iP cuts down the output power to 10W+10W, and features a rotatable bracket for watching videos comfortably. Good for 6 hours of on-the-go playback, it also ships with a protective pouch to keep the speaker safe when travelling.

Last up is the smaller RDP-M5iP, with just a 2W+2W ouput. It still however squeezes in two 50mm loudspeakers with bass reflex just like its M15iP sibling, but runs off four AAA batteries and is equipped with a handle.

The RDP-X60iP and the RDP-M5iP will be available in June, with the RDP-M15iP following a little later in July. As ever with Sony gear, prices are yet to be announced.
