iLive on Tuesday announced the IHMD8816DT, a “home docking system” — a compact stereo that comes complete with integrated iPod dock connector. It costs $159.99.
The awkwardly-named IHMD8816DT incorporates two speakers with side-firing subwoofers, and integrates an AM/FM radio, drawer-load DVD/CD/CDR/CDRW/Digital Audio CD/JPEG-compatible CD player. On top, a dock connector can interface with the iPod — inserts are provided to fit an iPod nano and iPod mini, as well.
The Home Docking System also features video output capabilities to any TV or display with a composite video interface. A stereo auxiliary line input lets the station interface with other peripherals such as a non-iPod MP3 player, cell phone or gaming system. It also has a stereo headphone jack and blue-backlit 6-digit LCD display.
