Sony recently debuted its new RDP-X500iP speaker dock for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod. Sporting a wide, tall shape and a front-mounted dock, the RDP-X500iP features Magnetic Fluid Speakers for increased clarity, a built-in subwoofer, dual passive radiators for added bass response, Clear Phase digital signal processing, an auxiliary input, and an included remote control.
This speaker dock from Sony has a lot of features to make the music stored on your iOS device sound its best. Sony’s RDP-X500iP Premium Speaker Dock uses S-MASTER digital amplification that gets you closer to the music with high-performance audio output. Sony’s Clear Phase™ linear phase correction circuitry ensures reduced distortion and increased sound presence, making your music crisp and clear. And the speakers use damperless Magnetic Fluid that delivers higher sound pressure with less distortion than traditional speakers.
Of course, the dock will charge your iPod, iPhone, or iPad, and you don’t need to remove the case before plugging the device into the dock. The included remote lets you control the music from across the room. There’s also an aux input so you can use the speakers with other audio devices. There’s a free app in iTunes that adds a clock display and a sound equalizer when the iOS device is docked.
The RDP-X500iP is available now for around $300, and is available at Amazon.

SONY INTRODUCES PREMIUM iPAD COMPATIBLE SPEAKER DOCK WITH INNOVATIVE SOUND TECHNOLOGIES
Sony’s #1 Selling Dock for iPod Also Revamped with Enhanced Features
San Diego, CA - Sony today announced two new speaker docks, a premium, iPad® compatible model with built-in subwoofer (RDP-X500iP) and a successor to Sony’s most popular speaker dock (ICF-CS15iP). Both offer premium sound quality, sleek design and easy-to-use functionality.
Made for most iPod®, iPhone® and iPad®, the RDP-X500iP speaker dock features a beautifully modern design while delivering innovative sound technologies. Its built-in subwoofer, Clear Phase™ DSP and groundbreaking magnetic fluid speakers work in concert to provide a superior audio experience. An auxiliary audio input facilitates connection to other sources for easy access to music, wherever it is stored. For a convenient listening experience, a full function remote control is also included.
The RDP-X500iP boasts Sony’s state-of-the-art DMC technology, a combination of Dual Passive Radiators, Magnetic Fluid Speakers and Clear Phase DSP sound processing. In conjunction with its built-in subwoofer, dual passive radiators provide powerful bass response in a remarkably compact form factor. Rather than using conventional drivers, speakers with damperless magnetic fluid technology are employed, delivering higher sound pressure levels, clearer vocals, and less distortion. In addition, Sony’s unique Clear Phase linear phase correction circuitry further reduces distortion and increases sound presence, making music sound crisp and clear.
With a luxurious design and stainless steel accents, the dock adds style to any home. Its unique speaker layout not only saves space and features a sophisticated design, but improves sound efficiency as well.
Sony’s most popular speaker dock is now even better with the introduction of the ICF-CS15iP. Not only does it support charging and playback of the iPod and iPhone, it also delivers great stereo sound via its MEGA BASS and Mega Xpand sound modes. The MEGA BASS mode provides an option to enhance bass response, while the Mega Xpand mode expands the music sound field for a full, rich audio experience.
Dual alarm functionality allows users to set two independent wake-up alarms, while the 2-5-7 day alarm feature supports different settings for weekdays and weekends, all with the option of waking up to an iPod, iPhone, AM/FM radio, or buzzer. The new flexible dock connector is designed to accommodate docking and charging an iPod or iPhone without removing it from its case. A full function remote control gives users access to music on an iPod or iPhone from across the room.
Both speaker docks will be available October 2011 at Sony Stores including online at www.sony.com/docks and other authorized retailers nationwide. Pre-orders are available now.
