The iHome iP1 Studio Series is an iPod dock that looks more like a boom box. It uses a “100 watt class D biamplified architecture with Bongiovi sound processing through twin 4-inch woofers and matched 1-inch dome tweeters.” It also has GSM shielding for iPhone use and a video-out port for watching iPod /iPhone video on a TV. Still, there is no radio or alarm features. The iP1 is outfitted with Bongiovi Acoustics Digital Power Station, an active digital signal processor that the company claims makes your MP3s sound better and maximizes the performance of the iP1.
Here’s how iHome describes this feature: When activated, “DPS constantly scans the program material and compensates for any deficiencies across the audio frequency spectrum. The result is a restoration of once-missing harmonics, brightness, clarity and presence. It also delivers a deeper, more resonant bass and miraculously extends audio bandwidth without adding peak output to the signal.” The iHome Studio Series iP1 will be available in July 2009, with an estimated retail price of about $300.
