Sony has announced the RDP-X50iP, a new model to their series of speaker docks for the Apple iPod and iPhone, with the intention to deliver “the best possible audio quality at a price with the widest appeal”.
The heart of the RDP-X50iP is a specially designed digital amplifier and long-stroke driver units capable of delivering 20W + 20W RMS – in other words, real room-filling power.
The long-stroke speakers, a super-long duct and twin reflex ports give the RDP-X50iP its distinctively rich and powerful bass. This underpins clear midrange and crisp high frequency reproduction precision-enhanced by digital signal processing (DSP).
Using the RDP-X50iP is simplicity itself: just slip in your iPod or iPhone for a charge and enjoy your favorite music at the same time. The omnidirectional infra-red remote gives you full iPod/iPhone menu control of music functions, so everything works just the way you would expect.*
Rather than relying on various pre-set modes for different styles of music, the RDP-X50iP is optimized for general use and will reward the listener with its sound whatever is playing. It looks as good as it sounds, with a restrained, minimalist design that is hugely versatile and will harmonize with virtually any interior.
The Sony RDP-X50iP is compatible with iPhone 3GS and current iPod models.
