Yamaha enters iPod market with four new audio products

Yamaha, the manufacture of pro audio gear: mixers, processors, power amplifiers, and speakers has introduced a range of new audio accessories for the iPod.

Top-end sound quality and instant wireless remote control were singled out as customer priorities says Yamaha when the company set up a dedicated R&D department in 2006.

The first fruits of this development are a range of four new iPod specific audio products. The PDX50 heads up the range, the first product to feature what Yamaha calls a unique 'Air-Wired' technology that, unlike other wireless iPod audio systems, promises to deliver lossless uncompressed data.

No pairing is necessary with the 'dock less' PDX50 explains Yamaha; you just activate your iPod to establish a wireless connection. A remote control is provided via a small wireless transmitter that attaches to the iPod.

Billed as a compact and lightweight speaker system, the PDX50 is powered by a newly designed digital amplifier and comes with a wooden cabinet that allows the sound to vibrate more efficiently says Yamaha.

The PDX30 meanwhile features an iPod dock atop the unit, both the PDX50 and PDX30 comes in a variety of colours including black, blue, gray and for the adventurous pink.

The PDX50 is priced at £199 (US$302), while the PDX30 costs £129.

The PDX50 is compatible with the iPod touch, iPod from 5th Generation (click wheel, including iPod classic), iPod nano and iPod mini, iPhone, iPhone 3G.

Yamaha is also launching two highly specified iPod clock-radio entertainment systems.

The top-of-the-range TSX130, boasts 30W stereo output, 8cm speakers and digital signal processing. The iPod dock is situated on top of the unit, which also features a CD player, DAB and FM radio and USB connectivity to accommodate a wide range of portable music formats. The TSX130 will also play MP3 and WMA tracks.

The TSX120 iPod dock includes a DAB/ FM radio, alarm and mini jack option for other players, whilst iPod functions can be operated from the remote unit. The systems offer iPod charging when the units are in use or on standby.

The TSX130 is priced at £349, while the TSX120 costs £299.

The TSX130/ TSX120 are compatible with the iPod touch, iPod from 4th Generation (click wheel, including iPod classic), iPod nano and iPod mini, iPhone, iPhone 3G.
