The Teac SR-80i Hi-Fi Table Top Audio Player with iPod Dock (Silver) is a stylish unit with a great sound and futuristic aesthetic. It features audio playback from an iPod/iPhone dock, a PLL synthesized AM/FM stereo tuner, auxiliary stereo-mini audio input, and even a USB port that supports MP3 playback from a USB memory device. The system's crown jewel is its top-mounted iPod/iPhone dock that's compatible with several iPod and iPhone models, charges your device while it plays, and actually provides a digital direct connection path between your portable device and the system itself. This innovative feature affords high-fidelity, lossless audio playback from the dock.
The SR-80i also has an integrated and stylish LCD display that blends seamlessly into the unit. The display reveals time, station, track, and even file format information. Plus, its ample size facilitates visibility from across the room. This comes in handy when using the included remote control, which not only operates all system functions, it also allows you to control your iPod or iPhone from the comfort of your couch or bed, as long as your portable player is in the docking cradle. The system even has a composite video output, which lets you view your iPod/iPhone movies and pictures on your television.
The SR-80i may have a few bells and whistles, but it is also very much designed for exciting and rich audio playback. It features integrated full-range stereo speakers with bass-reflex ports, as well as the addition of MAXXBASS technology. Teac's MAXXBASS further enhances the system's thunderous low-end by powering the speaker's Super Bass DSP. With a design that promotes such power, as well as innovative technology and futuristic beauty, the SR-80i also affords authentic, crystal clear audio reproduction and multi-source functionality. A successful synergy of high-fidelity sound, powerful bass, innovation and forward-thinking design, the SR-80i may be housed in an out-of-this-world enclosure, but it's intended for the everyday listener and music enthusiast.
