It seems to be iPod dock day today. Having just reported on one new dock from Gear4 (below), up pops another one from Onkyo.
We first clapped eyes on Onkyo's CBX-300 at the Bristol Sound and Vision Show last month, but only had scant details. Now we can tell all.
It will cost £229 and has a slot-load CD mechanism that can play conventional CDs and CD-Rs encoded with MP3 and WMA files. iPods can be played back through the built-in dock, and there's a four-mode preset EQ function offering standard, dynamic 1, dynamic 2 and vocal settings.
Sound is provided courtesy of magnetically-shielded, full-range, bass-reflex 8cm OMF (Onkyo Micro Fibre) diaphragm speakers with Aero Acoustic drive for "a powerful and natural sound quality". There's also Active Bass Control to improve low-end performance.
The built in FM radio has a four-mode timer so you can set it to wake you up or send you to sleep at different times, and there's even a snooze setting.
