Reading up on the recently announced CES Innovation Honorees for 2012, a new Airplay enabled speaker dock appeared in the Audio Component category; the LG ND8520 Airplay enabled speaker dock.
There is very little information available on this system yet, it is not even featured on LG website yet. Based on the information on the CES website we are looking at a fairly powerful iPod speaker dock system as the LG ND8520 features 2.1-channel 80W speaker, a physical docking station for your iPod/iPhone, and Airplay streaming capability.
Based on the image available on the award site, we are looking at a speaker dock that has a modern rubix cube like design in a black stylish finish. The design is definitely different and i can see it becoming popular amongst those that are looking for a slightly more unusual, untraditional designed speaker dock.
I will be back with more information on the LG ND8520 Airplay enabled speaker dock when available, including release date and pricing. In the meantime you can check out other available Airplay speakers here.
There was more good news for Airplay speakers in the CES Innovations Honorees as well as Libratone Live snagged the “Best of Innovation” in the Personal Electronics category, and both the Philips Fidelio Soundring and the Altec Lansing inAir 5000 was honored in the Audio Component category.
