Bang & Olufsen Launches an iPod Dock  Print E-mail

Bang & Olufsen, makers of the BeoVision line of TVs have created their fist iPod dock, designed for compatibility with the iPod, iPhone and even the iPad. 

They call it the BeoSound 8 and it looks absolutely sleek.  It's thin and white, with a bit of aluminum finish in the center.  Looked at head on, it even seems like it's floating a bit.  Aesthetically speaking, the BeoSound 8 is one impressive unit.

B&O doesn't get specific with the audio components, but they do boast that the BeoSound 8 is capable of reproducing bass frequencies as low as 38Hz which is practically unheard of in an iPod dock this size.  The unit itself includes a switch for adjusting the audio depending on placement. 

In addition to the dock itself, B&O is launching a pair of applications.  The free version lets you access Net Radio and enables alarm clock functionality.  The paid version runs $20 and includes access to 10,000 radio stations, a comprehensive browser and an improved alarm clock.

You'll be able to pick up a BeoSound 8 for yourself later this month at a price of $999.
