Against an endless sea of iPod and iPhone docks that have flooded the market, Yamaha releases the PDX-11 portable player dock, a new product concept that delivers sound anywhere.
Available in four colors--white, dark blue, green and black--the battery or AC powered PDX-11 has a octagonal horn-shaped design with a perforated steel grill designed for toughness. A sturdy "grab it and go" roll bar chrome handle makes it easy to take the PDX-11 anywhere you want.
The iPod/iPhone dock is perched on the top of the unit, and music is played back via a 4-inch woofer, while a separate tweeter provides for high frequencies.
"The PDX-11 was conceived by Yamaha as a portable playback product that mirrors the philosophy of the iPod itself - to give consumers the freedom to enjoy and share music absolutely anywhere, through a stylish device that is compact, easy and fun to use," said Tom Sumner, president, Yamaha Electronics Corporation. "There is no other comparably priced device on the market that approaches what the PDX-11 offers in sound quality, portability, rugged design and aesthetics. People who see it will want it. People who hear it will want it even more."
The PDX-11 also can be connected to a PC, Mac or other digital audio player via a mini jack (3.5mm) on the back of the dock and carries a price of $99.95.
