Speakal debuts colorful iPhone/iPod docking speakers at CES

Speakal, a speaker company best known for their humorous “character” iPod speakers such as the iPig and iPanda, will be unveiling their 2011 lineup of speaker docks for iPhones and iPods — moving away from the character designs but retaining the bright, colorful style while offering different varieties for different lifestyles. The new products range from small portable speakers to luxury wireless stereo systems.

The SPBKX-100 (seen below) comes in three colors: silver, red and blue, each featuring a colorable LED light. The design incorporates an LCD clock (that syncs with the iPhone/iPod clock) and an AM/FM radio with 20 preset stations. The large speakers feature an acoustic accelerator and DSP audio processing. It can be used as a bedside clock or loaded with AA batteries and taken out as a portable sound system.

The single-speaker SB-12 offers a modern industrial design with touch controls and single halo speaker with powerful sound. The touch controls make it easy to use and despite its size the unit offers strong fidelity.

The iExecutive is designed for office use and features a clean, aerodynamic design. It offers Bluetooth compatibility as well as USB and SD connectors, and can output video from the iPhone/iPod as well as audio. It features a powerful 20-watt subwoofer and also includes a radio and clock function.

The Kurve is a long tube that offers fantastic separation of stereo signal to really fill up a room. Incorporated into its sleek design is 20 watts of sound and an LED accent light with four levels of brightness to add the right touch to any setting.

Finally the SB-5 uses an artfully-designed oval speaker to pump out 27 watts of sound for extra amplification. The unit offers Bluetooth remote controllability so that users can adjust settings, change tracks and more without leaving the couch.

All five designs will be formally introduced at CES in the iLounge area. Prices and availability have not yet been announced.
