\r\n\r\nMy skeptcism meter begins to tingle when a company claims to eclipse the average competitor. \u00a0In this case it's an iPod\/iPhone dock that promises immersive 3D sound, the Onkyo\u00a0RBX-500 iLunar Bluetooth Music System.\r\n\r\nOnkyo teamed up with\u00a0\u00a0Swiss company Sonic Emotion, who develops a piece of tech called\u00a0Absolute 3D sound. \u00a0As you've probably deduced it bathes the room in sound no matter where your standing, and given the RBX-500's shape (round) I'm not going to dispute such claims. \u00a0Inside the air filter looking speaker is a digital amp that powers 6 individual full range 2-inch drivers and a 4-inch subwoofer that is said to deliver a sweet spot to any part of the room.\r\n\r\nNeedless to say there is 30-pin dock, so anyone with an iPhone 5 will need to pick up an adapter. \u00a0Alternatively, the system ships with Bluetooth 2.1 (+EDR and a ptX codec) for those seeking a wireless experience, and there is an additional USB port for charging another device, though it doesn't appear to be good for playing back tunes. \u00a0Unfortunately, there is no onboard rechargeable battery, so the RBX-500 will be tethered to the wall.\r\n\r\nThe\u00a0Onkyo RBX-500 iLunar Bluetooth Music System is available now from Amazon for $249.
