Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) May 30, 2006
Today Speck Products announced SpeckTone™ Retro- the first product in a line of fashion and performance focused speaker systems for iPod.
SpeckTone™ Retro looks like nothing you’ve seen for the iPod. The clean lines and nostalgic elegance of 1950’s style makes a statement without replicating or competing with the modern, sleek look of the iPod itself. The all wood, sonically tuned speaker cabinet is finished with a high-gloss lacquered “piano finish,” a gorgeous high-end feature previously available only on speaker sets 5 times the price of SpeckTone™ Retro.
“Until now, all the iPod speaker sets available looked very similar,” said Speck’s General Manager Tim Hickman. “SpeckTone™ Retro offers a unique and very cool look, different and more fashionable than anything on the market. We’re excited to offer such a dynamic product with a hip personality, great sound and an affordable price.”
Compact in size yet substantial in sound, the SpeckTone™ Retro rocks hard and loud with a 28 watt output, 4” subwoofer for pumping bass, and two 3” drivers. The analog circuitry inside completes the retro spirit and sound of the product, producing rich, deep tones and blowing away any and all competitors in the $150 price range.
SpeckTone™ Retro is available in 3 high-gloss lacquered finishes. Go totally retro with the signature green/brown color combo, keep it sleek and modern with the black-on-black, or pay homage to the ‘classic’ iPod look with the white and silver SpeckTone™. The integrated iPod dock supports iPod with video, iPod nano, 4G iPods (color and b&w), and iPod mini. iPod Shuffle or other portable devices such as CD players, tape decks or MP3’s can be plugged in thru the 1/8” AUX jack in the back of the SpeckTone™ Retro. Product will begin shipping to consumers and retail partners on June 12, 2006 with an MSRP of $149.95. Consumers can pre-order now at http://www.speckproducts.com.
