CES: Tango sound system integrates iPod dock

XtremeMac has announced Tango, a new 2.1 speaker system designed to work with Apple’s iPod. It integrates a dock connector and features a remote control. Coming in late March, the Tango will cost $199.

The device features a downward-firing subwoofer and a sound stabilizer that keeps the unit in place even if the bass is booming. Tango can also be connected to a TV or home entertainment center for video iPod users, using a built-in 3.5mm audio/video line out jack. An infrared remote control lets you control the iPod, and the unit will charge the iPod’s battery when it’s connected.

XtremeMac said the Tango will work with any dock connector equipped iPod.

Although this announcement is coming from the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, XtremeMac noted it will be demonstrating prototypes of the new system at Macworld Conference & Expo in San Francisco, which runs January 9 - 13, 2005.

XtremeMac’s Web site had not been updated with information about the Tango as Playlist posted this article.
