Memorex has come out with a total of six new swanky iPod and iPhone audio systems, ranging from travel sized speaker systems to alarm clocks. Available with a black or white/aluminum style finish, these new systems are very Apple’esque in design. The systems are all compatible with the iPhone 4, as well as the new iPod Nano 6G and iPod Touch 4G. Amongst the line up is the clutch-style TagAlong Portable Boombox which is actually a follow up to their best selling MiniMOVE Boombox system. The TagAlong features an integrated handle, FM Radio, and a recessed docking station. Meanwhile, their PartyCube CD Sound System will be appealing to those who still have CDs laying around, especially at a time when iPod docks with dedicated CD players are disappearing. This system also features a top loading CD player, multi-directional speakers, an AM/FM radio with presets, a line-in jack, and backlit display.
Memorex says that they spent a year working with women and their families, inside of their homes, in order to develop a new line of products that are practical, well thought-out, and have genuine female appeal. This is why so many of the systems in this new lineup have emphasized portability, durability and ease of use – for example, even the alarm clock on the new Clock Radio Dual Alarm feature back-lit buttons that walk you through the process of setting the time and alarm.
Featuring integrated collapsible handles, lightweight lithium-ion rechargeable batteries and durable rubberized bottoms, the PartyCube™ Sound System and PartyCube™ CD Sound System provide the ultimate flexibility for families’ music-inspired moments. Unique, recessed docking cradles charge your iPod or iPhone, while also protecting the device from being scratched or damaged.
The PartyCube™ CD Sound System (MSRP: $149.99) will get your family grooving with four multi-directional speakers for room-filling sound. In addition to playing and charging all iPhone and iPod devices, this system also includes a top-loading CD player, digital AM/FM tuner, line-in jack and rechargeable lithium-ion battery for up to eight hours of un-tethered music fun.
Like its larger counterpart, the PartyCube™ Sound System (MSRP: $99.99) features multi-directional speakers and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, making it perfect for music lovers at home or on the go. Compatible with all iPod and iPhone devices, the system includes a digital FM tuner and line-in jack.
Break the Earbud Barrier
Families with teens or tweens know WeTime just isn’t the same when earbuds are in use. The TagAlong™ Portable Boombox (MSRP: $59.99) and PurePlay™ Portable Speaker (MSRP: $69.99) are designed to “break the earbud barrier” and make music sharing fun for family members of all ages.
A perfect companion for kids, the TagAlong™ Portable Boombox is a great grab and go option for taking your music to the pool or a picnic. With its integrated handle, digital FM radio and recessed docking station for your iPod or iPhone, the TagAlong™ Portable Boombox allows you to play great-sounding music in any setting.
A clutch-style speaker system, the PurePlay™ Portable Speaker provides powerful sound when on the go. From the backyard to the park, the PurePlay™ Portable Speaker can be easily folded and packed, and its sleek, durable design keeps your speakers protected. When you’re back at home, simply unfold it and groove to your favorite tunes while powering and charging your iPod or iPhone.
Wake Up in Style
There’s no better way to start your day than with your favorite tunes. But many iPod- or iPhone-compatible alarm clocks feature “upright docking” stations that leave your device unprotected. The innovative Clock Radio Dual Alarm (MSRP: $69.99) and Clock Radio Mini Alarm (MSRP: $49.99) feature a one-of-a-kind “lay down docking” station that allows your iPod or iPhone to play as it charges, while cradling your device from being scratched when you go to hit snooze.
Set two different wake-up times so you can both enjoy waking to an iPod or iPhone with the Clock Radio Dual Alarm. It’s quick and simple to set time and alarm functions thanks to backlit buttons that walk you through the process. Front and side speakers offer ample wake-up sound, while the six-option dimmer switch, sleep timer and battery backup provide the functionality families look for in a dual AM/FM alarm clock.
Available for just under $50, the Clock Radio Mini Alarm offers the unique combination of iPhone and iPod compatibility and is ideal for smaller spaces. A feature-rich alarm clock in a compact package, the Clock Radio Mini Alarm includes a sleep timer, dimmer function and backup battery for time. Whether waking up to your iPod, iPhone, FM radio or buzzer, its stereo speakers provide high-quality sound.
