Altec Lansing on Monday introduced its
T612 digital audio system for the iPod and iPhone. The T612 is coming in February for $199.95.
Borrowing design cues from Altec Lansing’s M602, the T612 utilizes neodymium speakers and “XdB” bass-enhancement technology. It features a Universal Dock that can accommodate the iPhone and iPod, which sits centrally in front of the speakers.
To prevent interference when the iPhone is communicating over GSM, the M602 employs shielding. It will also automatically pause any music playing on the iPhone during an incoming call. Once the call is complete, the music resumes playing where the iPhone left off.
On the back of the unit is an auxiliary input jack to connect to other audio devices. It also includes a wireless remote control that can be used for iPhone or iPod navigation and adjusting volume, bass and treble levels.
