Like previous models—the original SoundDock, the SoundDock II, and the SoundDock Portable—the SoundDock 10 is a one-piece speaker system with an iPod dock. But the SoundDock 10 is considerably larger at 17 inches wide, 9 inches tall, and 10 inches deep. The company says this increased size allows the system to provide better low-frequency response and achieve louder volume levels. The SoundDock 10 also incorporates a new version of Bose’s “waveguide” technology and a newly designed Bose woofer.
The SoundDock 10 features an internal power supply, eliminating the need for an external power brick, and magnetic shielding. It’s Made-for-iPod and Works-with-iPhone certified, although the system’s dock uses a new interchangeable design that can also accommodate an optional ($150) Bluetooth dock for streaming audio to the SoundDock.
The $599 SoundDock 10 will be available on September 21.
