Griffin Technology, maker of all things iPod, today announced their 2007 lineup to debut at next week's MacWorld Conference & Expo.
A new line of speakers highlight the many new products being shown on the show floor.
Amplifi is a high-tech contemporary-styled 2.1 sound system, designed for big sound with a compact tabletop footprint.
Amplifi's all-wood, acoustically tuned enclosure yields warm, rich tones. The bass reflex port and special Resonance Drive construction gives amazing frequency response. Two front-firing 2-3/4" neodymium drivers and a 5" downward-firing woofer, boosted by Power Drive Technology, creates a clean powerful sound unheard of at this price point.
- iPod-ready with slot and six iPod adapters
- 3.5mm stereo input jack for audio devices
- Two 2.75" neodymium high/midrange speakers
- 5" woofer and bass reflex port
- Acoustically tuned wooden enclosure
- High-tech contemporary styling
- Slim full-function IR remote
Journi, Griffin's personal mobile speaker system, has great sound wrapped up in an ingeniously designed, go-anywhere package. Journi's innovative WrapstandTM exterior protects your speaker system (and your iPod) when you're on the go, then flips open to create its own sturdy stand.
Journi's high-efficiency internal Lithium-Ion batteries recharge with the included AC adapter or through your computer's powered USB port. Your iPod sits center stage within the adjustable dock bay while you control your music with the included remote. SRS Labs' SRS WOW® digital signal processing pumps shimmering highs and deep, rich bass response through Journi's two-way speaker system.
8-10 hours of play on a single charge
Two 50mm high/mid-range drivers and two 64mm passive radiators use SRS WOW® digital technology to expand the audio image, improving digital audio and creating deep, rich bass response
Sync iPod with your computer's iTunes library as it charges
Adjustable Dock Connector welcomes all iPod models with dock connector
Auxiliary Audio Input for other digital music players
In addition to speakers, Griffin is introducing numerous innovative add-ons for the iPod.
AirDock lets you play iTunes on your stereo, watch iPod photos and videos on your TV. The included RF remote allows you to control it all from up to 60 feet away.
Griffin Dock Adapter for iPod Shuffle connects your second generation Shuffle to devices with an Apple Universal Dock. The all-in-one design is compatible with docks such as Griffin's own AirDock as well as Apple's HiFi speaker system and other accessories.
TuneFlex AUX plays iPod's music through car stereos equipped with a 1/8" (3.5mm) auxiliary input jack as it charges through the auto's 12V power outlet. The custom designed cradle holds your iPod secure while the pass-through dock connector leaves your options open.
TuneJuice 2 is an improved version of Griffin's popular battery backup for iPod. TuneJuice 2 adds more playing time for music and video making it ideal for air travel and road trips. Powered by 4 AAA batteries, it adds up to 14 additional hours of audio play and 2 additional hours of video play. And the first set of batteries is included.
Reflect cases for iPod nano and full-size iPod with video are rugged polycarbonate hard shells that present a mirrored-chrome reflective face to the world -- until you wake up your iPod, and the bright, clear iPod screen shows up as if by magic. The matte black rubberized case back gives you a sure grip.
iClear® Custom - Griffin takes its popular see-through iClear iPod shells and goes them one better: a slot in the back accepts your own printed photographs and artwork (some sample templates and reflective inserts are included to get you started). Personalize and customize your iPod nano and full-size iPod with iClear Custom.
Tempo for iPod shuffle now brings the same hands-free convenience and mobility to iPod shuffle as it delivered for the full-size iPod. Tempo's adjustable armband fits any arm. Built-in cord wrap eliminates cable tangles. Reflective accents show up at night for safety. Maintain the tempo of your active lifestyle with Tempo for iPod shuffle.
Also making their first US appearances at MacWorld are Griffin's iKaraoke for iPod and Elevator for portable computers:
iKaraoke brings the fun and excitement of karaoke into your home -- or anywhere you have a stereo receiver. And the best part is it lets you sing along, not from a limited menu, but with your favorite musical selections, straight from your iPod. iKaraoke fades out the lead vocals and brings your vocals up front to make you the star! ...and sends your music and vocals to your stereo via wireless FM Transmission or Line-Level audio. Convenient buttons let you enhance your sound with three levels of reverb, or temporarily mute the music for PA announcements.
Elevator is a sleek desktop stand for portable computers with stunning good looks. The brushed aluminum stand positions the laptop screen at an ideal height for viewing thus allowing air to freely circulate around the laptop's cooling vents.
We expect to bring you reviews of these products over the coming months. Our review of the Elevator will be up online straight after Mac Expo, so check back soon to see just what Geekanoids thought of it.
