XtremeMac shows off iPod speaker dock, FM transmitter
By Geoff Duncan
XtremeMac has taken the wraps off the Tango X2, a new black-and-chrome speaker system for the Apple iPod. The accessory maker also unveiled a transmitter and car charger for the iPod during this week’s Macworld Expo.
Like XtremeMac’s earlier Tango speaker system, the X2 features two custom full-range speakers and a subwoofer. But the X2 adds an AM/FM tuner supporting six user presets, and a hidden blue LED display tucked behind the its front grille.
The new unit is also about 30 percent smaller than the original Tango speaker system, will charge any iPod with a dock connector, and features a line in jack for connecting other audio devices.
The Tango X2 costs $149.99; it is currently available for pre-order via XtremeMac’s Web site, and should be available at retailers in a few weeks.
XtremeMac also announced its InCharge FM transmitter for the Apple iPod, enabling drivers to charge their digital media player while transmitting audio to their in-vehicle sound system. The unit features mono and stereo modes to improve reception even when finding an open FM band is difficult.
Expect to see the InCharge FM transmitter for $69.95; XtremeMac is taking pre-orders now, although it should be available from retailers in a few weeks.
