Just in time for Christmas, Pioneer will be releasing its first range of speaker docks with Lightning connections for new iPhones and iPads. There will be the X-SMC11DAB and a more expensive X-SMC55DAB models announced.
The X-SMC11DAB - nice and easy to remember, that - will offer not only Lightning dock but also USB.AUX connections and a CD drive. The high-end model, X-SMAC55DAB, also offers built-in Wi-Fi, Wireless Direct, Apple AirPlay and the new Spotify Connect to stream directly through the speaker. Both systems churn out 40W of power.
The X-SMC11DAB will sell for £220 and will offer DAB+ and DAB radio and can be wall mounted.
The X-SMC55DAB will sell for £300 and sports DLNA v1.5 to stream from pretty much any machine you've got. Its Spotify Connect service is also a first for these systems.
Both systems will be on sale in December.
