Next week at CES 2007 in Las Vegas, Logitech will present its new Logitech X-240 speakers. One of the special things about these speakers is that they are designed to be used for PCs but that they also feature a cradle for an iPod or other digital audio players, PDAs or cell phones. The cradle, which can be stowed away when not in use, will make it easier to charge, sync and play your portable device.
With plug-and-play functionality, the X-240 speaker system allows people to dock their digital device by simply plugging it into the cradle. When their device of choice is docked, people can charge it and sync or play their favorite digital music. And when not in use, the cradle can be stored flush with the control pod.
To ensure a secure fit, the X-240 speakers include specialized trays for the iPod and Microsoft Zune. In addition to providing a custom fit, these trays help route the iPod or Zune charging cables behind the control pod and out of sight.
For people who don’t own any portable devices but still want quality PC speakers, the Logitech X-240 PC speakers deliver a rich sound while maintaining a smart profile. With stylish metal grilles, high-excursion satellite drivers, a ported down-firing subwoofer and dynamic, real-time bass equalization, the speakers deliver great audio in a stylish and slim design. For easy access, the control center also features master volume control, power buttons, and a convenient headphone jack that enables private listening.
The Logitech X-240 speaker system will be available in the U.S. in April and in Europe in May. It will cost $49.99.
