New iPhone/iPod Dock Promises Concert Quality Sound, for a Price
Audio equipment company Behringer announced today that it will be introducing the iNuke Boom (yes, that really is its name) at next year’s Consumer Electronics Show.
The company, which makes high-quality and affordable electronic equipment for professional musicians, said in its press release that it was trying to make the biggest, loudest iPhone and iPod dock ever. The dock, which at 8 feet wide and 4 feet tall is a foot longer and nearly twice as tall as most caskets, weighs 700 pounds, puts out 10,000 Watts of power and comes with a MSRP of $29,999.
The iNuke is the first product in Behringer’s new Eurosound line of products, which is intended to bring European design sensibilities to the company’s products. The Eurosound line will be broken into four categories, with products for home use, mobile use, live performance, and music creation.
The one existing iNuke prototype will be on display at the company’s booth at CES 2012 in January. The announcement caused some buzz on Twitter, where most were astounded at the size of the device.
