High-end audio company, Boston Acoustics, on Monday announced a new audio system for iPod users. The Horizon i-DS2 costs $179.99 and is available from the company’s Web site.
The i-DS2 resembles Apple’s own entry into the iPod speaker business — a rectangular speaker with the iPod sitting on top. The company said the i-DS2 features an acoustically tuned chamber for maximum bass response. It also includes a remote and can use any model iPod with a dock connector.
The unit also features a composite video output that also lets users show photos and videos from any video-capable iPod on their TV. A USB connector allows for iPod communication with iTunes and an auxiliary input allows connections to other media players as well.
The i-DS2 comes in white or black, but Boston Acoustics is offering grilles in a variety of colors including Glacier, Rosebud, Onyx, Pearl Gray, Caramel, Chocolat, Silver, Spanish Moss, Olive and Chili Pepper.
