It seems like there is a never-ending supply or variety when it comes to iPhone/iPod speaker docks which is definitely a good thing for those who are always on the look out for new accessories. If that is the case, then the Maxell company should not be a name unfamiliar to you.
Maxell who has previously released wireless flash drives, wireless iPhone 4 chargers and soundbar speaker systems has recently announced the MXSP-U40 speaker dock that is not only compatible with iPods and iPhones, but also Sony’s Walkman which can be connected via the company’s WM-PORT. It even comes with LED built into the dock which the company claims can be doubled as a nightstand light, although we can’t say for sure exactly how powerful it is. The speakers reportedly are able to produce an output of 0.8W and can also be connected to your PC/Mac by way of USB.
Unfortunately there is no word on price or availability, although given that it was announced in Japan, chances are we may not be seeing it in the States.
