Four built-in and acoustically calibrated stereo speakers provide high-performance True 3D sound reproduction with 4 EQ presets while the dual alarm feature allows wake or gradual wake settings to iPod, radio or buzzer. With video output, the unit plays back videos and photos from the iPod on any TV with a composite input. The unit includes automatic time setting and 7-Channel Weather Band Radio.

The line will continue to grow with new additions coming later in the year. The Studio Series is also adding an iPhone speaker solution with state-of-the-art speaker drivers, electronics and design.

“With the reception and feedback we have received so far, we will be expanding the offering of our sound bar speaker line, in particular, to continue to give customers an elegant design solution with great performance for the growing number of home flat panel TV installations,” added Fetter. “Our goal is to have a complete solution from $99 to $499. We continue to work on other portable solutions that can easily integrate into the home environment with the same focus on design, performance, and features.”
