"Multiple sources of home entertainment can often mean multiple headaches", well Nextbase have got some aspirin in the form of the new Media 22 Entertainment Centre.
Described as a unique portable solution, it's one remote controlled unit that features the following:
1) An iPod dock (video only via TV out)
2) USB portable audio device/flash memory playback
3) A DVD/CD player (with DivX and MP3 format compatibility)
4) A2DP Bluetooth-streaming option (for playback of music stored on Bluetooth-equipped mobile phones)
5) An FM radio
6) A 3.5-inch portable TV with analogue TV tuner
7) A five driver, 2.1-channel speaker system
8) 2 x 12 watt stereo output plus a 20 watt subwoofer
9) SD/MMC/MS card reader
Audio-wise, the 2.1 sound is thanks to the five drive units within the case: two treble drivers, two midrange units plus a single subwoofer. The drivers and electrical components are housed in a solid wooden structure around which is wrapped a gloss black plastic skin.
A full-function remote control is included and the unit itself offers hidden touch-sensitive buttons – ranged across the top face of the Media 22 and when navigating the functionality there's an icon-based on-screen display to help out.
The Nextbase Media 22, which measures 480 x 270 x 180mm (in case you're eyeing up that spare spot on your desk) is available in gloss black and will cost £300.
