Griffin Technology has announced that it’s shipping its
speaker system for the iPod. It’s a $129.99 portable speaker system designed to work with all iPods.
The Journi features the “Wrapstand,” a protective cover that hides the iPod and the speaker fronts when the Journi is not in use. Fold it back and around, and it works as a stand.
The Journi includes rechargeable lithium ion batteries that can run off an AC adapter or using a computer’s built-in USB port. The iPod itself rests on an adjustable dock connector, and a remote control is included so you can control the iPod from across the room. The Journi uses SRS Labs’ SRS Wow digital signal processing technology to improve the sound.
The Journi features two 50mm drivers and two 64mm passive radiators, and works for 8 to 10 hours of play on a single charge. The USB port enables iPods to sync when the Journi is connected to a Mac or PC.
The dock connector stand works with all dock connector-equipped iPods; the Journi is compatible with older iPods or other devices using an auxiliary input.
