iHome today made official two iPod speaker systems designed to make the most of available space for computer users: the iH69 and iH70 both incorporate an iPod dock directly into the base of the left satellite, reducing the clutter of a stand-alone dock. The addition not only charges and plays the iPod but also syncs with any Mac or PC connected to the speakers through USB.
All of the speakers support every dockable iPod, up to and including the iPod touch. The black iH69 unit offers just the basics and will ship “soon” for $100, according to iHome. Moving up to the silver iH70 adds a remote control as well as higher-power speakers and SRS WOW field-enhancing technology at a steeper $130 price point.
