New DLO iBoom Jukebox looks the part

DLO iBoom Jukebox: $200 iPod speaker dock due out in Spring 2008.


Among the cooler products coming out of Macworld 2008 is DLO's iBoom Jukebox, an iPod-ready speaker dock expected to ship this spring. Style-wise, this unit certainly lives up to its name: It's shaped like a mini jukebox. It's a fun design, though the iBoom isn't all about form over function. Hidden beneath the grille wrapped over the speaker's arch, you get two 1-inch tweeters and two 3-inch woofers. The unit also includes a super sweet-looking RF remote that can be used from up to 100 feet away (even through walls) and features its own screen for navigating the iPod's menus. The Jukebox also offers its own built-in controls via an illuminated touch strip lining the top edge of the speaker. The unit, which will cost about $200, works with any docking iPod and will charge the player while it's docked.
