CES 2007: Creative Announces X-Fi Wireless Dock for iPod
Creative made something of a surprising announcement with their Xdock Wireless product—a “Made for iPod” wireless music dock. The system allows you to push your iPod music out to multiple receivers simultaneously, each of which can drive their own independent speaker sets. The receivers all add X-Fi’s Crystalizer upconversion, which ostensibly improves the quality of even lower-encoded music. No word yet (that we’re able to find, at least) on if they’ll be releasing a similar system that’s compatible with their own Zen Vision:M MP3 players, which use a different dock on the bottom, but the system also includes a remote and video out.
The system will be released in Spring for $199, with additional receivers available for $99. Not a bad way to wire your iPod throughout your house pretty quickly and affordability.
