Pioneer's new iPod system in pictures

Mon, 7 Sep 2009, 12:54pm

We've got our hands on some pictures of Pioneer's forthcoming XW-NAS5 family of iPod systems - more details in this news story - which are due in November.

The basic and premium models are styled identically, though the basic model just comes in the white finish:

And without the iPod:

And from straight on:

And from the bottom, showcasing the downward-firing subwoofer:

The premium model - also featuring radio and soundscaping - is available in four colours, including white.

Here's a rear shot, showing the port for the optional Bluetooth adapter; audio line-in connection; video outs (so you can enjoy iPod content on your TV) and an FM aerial connection - no news yet on a DAB version for the UK:

 Next up is our favourite, red model:

But you may prefer the black...

...or the silver.

We expect to get review models of the range next month, with the system in shops by November. European pricing is set at €399 for the basic model and €499 for the premium quartet; with exchange rates as they are, we'd expect UK pricing to simply replace the € for £.
