Yamaha's ruggedized PDX-11 iPod speaker dock lets you blast beats beyond your block for $100
If its past offerings have been any indicator, Yamaha's no stranger to pumping out attractive speaker docks for iDevices. Not surprisingly, the company's managed to pour that design sense into its latest ruggedized portable system, the PDX-11. This octagonal unit features a 4-inch woofer and a 1 and 3/8-inch tweeter that can be powered by six AA-batteries, allowing for up to eight hours of on-the-go sound. Up top, you'll find a 30-pin connection base for your iPhone or iPod, and there's also a 3.5mm jack around back to play nice with other PMPs. Notably, the speaker's metal carry handle and grill should keep it ready for a mild amount of city-slicking abuse -- and in a choice of blue, white, green or black, we'd imagine it'll look extra fresh doing so. To sweeten the deal further, a remote is included for extra control options. If you're ready to take your tunes to the outdoors, the PDX-11 is available now for a block rockin' hundred bucks. You'll find full details at the source link below.

Yamaha PDX-11 Portable Dock for iPod/iPhone Lets You Take the Party with You

Portability with striking, rugged design and mind-blowing sound is ideal for life on the go

Release Date: November 1, 2011

BUENA PARK, Calif. – Against an endless sea of iPod and iPhone docks that have flooded the market, Yamaha boldly unleashes a standout: the PDX-11 portable player dock, an entirely new product concept that delivers amazing sound quality anywhere and at a remarkably low $99.95 MSRP.

Available in four eye-catching colors-white, dark blue, green and black-the battery or AC powered PDX-11 has a striking and rugged-looking octagonal horn-shaped design with a perforated steel grill designed for overall toughness. A sturdy "grab it and go" roll bar chrome handle makes it easy to take the PDX-11 anywhere you want to enjoy your favorite tunes-from the home or dorm room, to a party on the beach, the back yard or game-day tailgating.

The iPod/iPhone dock is perched on the top of the unit, and music is played back via an exceptionally powerful 4-inch woofer that drives extremely accurate, kicking bass and stunning midrange, while a separate tweeter provides crystal clear high frequencies.

"The PDX-11 was conceived by Yamaha as a portable playback product that mirrors the philosophy of the iPod itself – to give consumers the freedom to enjoy and share music absolutely anywhere, through a stylish device that is compact, easy and fun to use," said Tom Sumner, president, Yamaha Electronics Corporation. "There is no other comparably priced device on the market that approaches what the PDX-11 offers in sound quality, portability, rugged design and aesthetics. People who see it will want it. People who hear it will want it even more."

The PDX-11 also can be connected to a PC, Mac or other digital audio player via a mini jack (3.5mm) on the back of the dock.
