Logitech announces AudioStation successor as part of Pure-Fi line

Announcement of the Pure-Fi Elite iPod dock solution from Logitech.

New name, same iPod speaker system Logitech

Logitech today unveiled the successor to the AudioStation--the Pure-Fi Elite High Performance Speakers. While any major updates over the AudioStation aren't immediately apparent, the Pure-Fi Elite maintains its LCD display, touch-sensitive buttons, wireless remote, digital AM/FM tuner, line-in jack, and video out (via composite or s-video) support for your photo or video iPod. Behind the grilles are two-way satellites, 1-inch dome tweeters, and 4-inch woofers--although it doesn't look like these grilles are removable like how we saw on the AudioStation. Unfortunately, one thing we wanted to see added to the system, an alarm clock, is surprisingly still absent on the Pure-Fi Elite.

While there's no word yet on whether the Pure-Fi Elite will support the recently announced new iPods, the Pure-Fi Elite will retail for $300 and is expected to hit store shelves sometime next month.
