XtremeMac Tango TRX iPod dock doesn't actually demand docking

We're seeing a growing trend in iPod speaker docks to take advantage of the recent models' Bluetooth support, and that's just what XtremeMac's Tango TRX delivers.  You can still dock your iPhone, iPod touch or even your iPad at the front, but alternatively you can pair it via Bluetooth 2.1 and beam your music over wirelessly.

XtremeMac also offer a free remote control app which allows you to tweak the audio as well as adjust the various EQ settings.  There's also a line-in jack for using other PMPs, while the speakers themselves consist of two midrange drivers, two dome tweeters and a downward firing subwoofer.

Two versions are on offer, the basic model at $179.99 and an Apple exclusive version, the Tango TRX D.  That adds a separate charging dock for your iPod/iPhone/iPad (though we imagine the latter would be more than a little precarious).
