Here’s a dinky little curio bound to appeal to at least some of the distributed audio and Apple fans in the audience. Keyspan have launched their TuneView system, a dock and remote combo that allows you to control your iPod when it’s connected to a hi-fi or multi-room setup. Rather than currently available remotes that offer basic transport controls and demand that you’re either happy with the current playlist or can navigate without seeing the iPod’s screen, the TuneView remote has a colour LCD display so that you can use it as if you were holding the DAP in your hands.
Multiple dock inserts allow the use of various iPod models, and outputs for stereo audio, video and USB mean that not only can you listen to and view all of your content but also sync with iTunes on a PC or Mac too. Most surprisingly, however, is the price: just $179.
