Roth Audio's Alfie iPod Music System

Roth Audio has just released ALFiE, a nice looking iPod system that also comes with an FM radio, CD player and inouts to play non iPod MP3 players.

The unit’s built-in audio engine is no slouch, powering out a total of 40 watts, and using a 2.1 amplifier and speaker combination to provide room-filling sound. Sneak a peek under its chassis, and you realise the use of an ever-so-clever downward-firing subwoofer helps beef-up the tracks, while allowing ALFiE to maintain a trim figure.

What you get:
Built-in iPod dock
Slot-fed drive plays DVD, CD-DA, Video CD, DVCD, CDR, CD/RW, and MP3
Aux-in supports an external MP3 source
FM/AM radio
Digital clock with dual alarm
Bass enhancement & tone controls
Remote control
Touch sensitive controls

Dimensions (mm): 390 x 105 x 255 (whd)
FM/AM tuner
Frequency response: 20Hz-20KHz
Inputs: auxiliary-in
LCD display (mm): 192 x 24mm
