DLO Debuts The HomeDock Entertainment Center For iPodsLets owners play their iPod?s music, display photo slideshows, and dock their iPods to a computer (September 21, 2005)
The HomeDock includes everything necessary to connect an iPod to a typical home stereo or a pair of powered speakers. Audio connections are made with standard RCA-type connectors using the superior line-out signal from the bottom connection of the iPod. RCA jacks on the HomeDock eliminate the need for adapters when connecting to most home amplifiers. The HomeDock also includes a RCA-to-mini adapter to allow easy connections to powered speakers. This simple setup makes a wonderful compact sound system. The HomeDock also features a 14-function remote control that lets users control volume, playback, skip tracks, advance playlists, and more. Even the backlight on the iPod can be turned on or off with the HomeDocks remote control.
The DLO HomeDock connects to a TV via Composite or S-Video allowing owners to easily display their slideshows from their photo ?output capable iPods. Users simply dock their iPod, select a photo slideshow and begin reliving memories all over again with a rich soundtrack played through high-fidelity home stereo speakers. Slideshows can even be controlled by the remote control, allowing users to pause, resume, rewind and advance pictures as well as control the volume of their slideshow music. Any size TV screen shows off photos better than the tiny iPod screen, but the newer digital flat screens connected via the HomeDocks S-Video output are particularly suited for the job.
?Everyone thinks they know how good their iPod sounds but when they hear their iPod played through high-powered high-fidelity home stereo speakers theyre usually blown away, said Andrew Green, VP of Marketing and Design for DLO. ?Whats amazing is that most people already have a great stereo system in their home, theyve just never had a simple convenient way to connect their iPod to it. The HomeDock IS that connection that permanently marries your iPod to your home stereo system. Now your iPod can rock you on the go, in the car and at home.
The DLO HomeDock is also a PC or Mac compatible dock for the iPod, iPod nano or iPod mini. It features a USB 2.0 port for easy syncing and charging to keep an iPod updated and ready to go. It also includes a standard AC adapter to power and charge your iPod while docked. It even allows you to connect your iPod without removing it from your favorite iPod case. An owner can also use their HomeDock and iPod with their favorite powered speaker system.
