Early last year iHome launched the iP1, a stylish high end iPhone/iPod docking system that boasted their patented Bongiovi Acoustic Digital Power Station technology. One problem, though: it cost $300. So iHome went back to the drawing board and came up with the iP2. Though it lacks the same luster as the iP1 it should rock out with the same fervor as its predecessor and at a price tag of $100 less – $199 to be exact. You can expect the iP2 on sale this Summer.
iHOME DEBUTS NEW MODELS FROM ITS STUDIO SERIES AT CES 2010
DPS Technology Integrated Into New Docking Solutions
RAHWAY, N.J., January 5, 2010 – One year after introducing the world to the first home audio system to incorporate Digital Power Station (DPS) technology, iHome today announced new products for its highly acclaimed Studio Series line. Premiering at CES 2010, the new iP2 Home Audio System for iPhone/iPod and the iP49 Portable Rechargeable Audio System with Alarm Clock & FM Radio for iPhone/iPod are the next wave of innovative products to incorporate DPS technology, giving users new hardware options while maintaining the same high standard of audio quality set by the original Studio Series offering, the award-winning iP1.
“The Studio Series is our premium line for those iPhone and iPod owners who demand a higher level of audio fidelity from their speakers,” said Evan Stein, vice president of Marketing, iHome. “Thanks to Bongiovi Acoustics’ DPS technology, the sound quality is virtually unrivalled and we are excited to broaden our offerings with the iP2 and iP49.”
The iP2 and iP49 are equipped with the patented Bongiovi Acoustics DPS technology which was developed by a team of audio engineers with years of experience in the music, television and motion picture recording industry. It is a complex, chip-based algorithm, custom-tuned to each and every product to maximize performance and provide studio quality sound, the way the artist intended it to be heard. The processor involved is active, meaning it constantly scans the program material in real time and effectively improves transients and harmonics that results in amazing highs, lows and clarity across all frequencies and volume levels. .
The Studio Series product line as well as iHome’s entire 2010 line-up will be on display during CES 2010 at iHome’s booth, located in the North Hall, MTG Room N245.
