CEDIA UK EXPO 2009: Geneva unveils compact Model M iPod dock
We've seen Geneva System's stylish range of iPod docks before, but new at CEDIA Expo this year is the revised Model M, a more compact variant of the Model L and XL.
It has an integrated iPod dock connector, replacing the wired connection of the original Model M, and joins the larger XL and L models in offering the ability to play music from an iPod, CD or the built-in FM radio.
The Model M is compatible with the Apple iPod Touch, iPhone, nano, Photo, Video, 3G, 4G, Mini and Classic iPods and includes a four-driver, 100W (4 x 25W RMS) stereo system.
A patented technology called EmbracingSound allows two sets of drivers within the M Dock cabinet to reproduce a "true stereo soundstage", says Geneva.
It's available in white, red or black lacquered finishes, or a real walnut veneer, for £699. A remote control, seven iPod dock adapters and 3.5mm adapter cable for connecting other MP3 players come as standard.
We have a full review of the larger Geneva Model L system in the August issue of What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision, on sale July 1st.
