New Sony iOS docks promise clearer sound thanks to magnetic fluid
How many times must one skim through so many iPad/iPod/iPhone docks before things start to get predictable? And when a speaker dock actually does stand out, it is usually for nothing to do with high fidelity but more with a retro design or a little mood lighting isn’t it?
Sony's latest couple of iOS docks, the ‘CMT-V50iP’ and the ‘CMT-V75BTiP’, may just look like your standard options, but they come with a punch and a mission: to break the mold by using magnetic fluid instead of speaker dampers to move sound-waves.
Sony claims that this new bit of technology provides higher clarity in audio with less distortion, and no dampers means a slimmer, more svelte design. If your music collection goes far beyond your iDevice, you can take advantage of the CD-player and built-in DAB and DAB radio, or- if you've made the migration to the digital age completely- stream over Bluetooth on the CMT-V75BTiP or connect via the USB port on the CMT-V50iP.
The company announced these two beautiful devices just yesterday, and pricing info remains hushed, though The Verge reports that the next few months will most likely be when both of these models decide to drop in.
