The three models, iOnly Play (ABX-100), iOnly Stream (ABX-N300), and iOnly Bass (SBX-300), were conceived as a way to offer users a greater level of convenience, practicality, and performance in portable and affordable packages. Additionally, iOnly models are designed with smooth, easily cleaned surfaces, and the recharging dock and controls are protected from dust when not in use.
The first model to be introduced in this series is the iOnly Play, which is designed specifically for iPod and iPhone devices. The second model will be the iOnly Bass, which will also accommodate the iPad. The iOnly Stream will follow later this year.
The iOnly Play is designed for use on a shelf, table or desktop in the home, dorm room, or office. The sliding cover also conceals and protects an easy-to-read graphical LCD display and touch-screen control buttons.
With the iOnly Bass, the docking port is on the lower front edge of the chassis providing solid support for an iPad. With its modest weight and aluminium handle the iOnly Bass is designed to be an easily transported entertainment package.
Both models include a wireless remote control.
Onkyo's iOnly Play and iOnly Bass will be available in October with a suggested retail price of $249 each.
