Sharp Corporation of Australia has announced the release of its latest Micro sound system, the XLDK257NH featuring a pocket-style iPod dock and capable of producing 160 W total RMS of high fidelity audio – all within a compact, stylish design.

The XLDK257NH’s docking tray opens at the touch of the button for direct connection and charging of all dockable iPods, including new generation models. The system also enables streaming of photos and video files from all iPods with video capability.

Other music source options on this micro system include a single tray CD player with 32 track APMS (Automatic Programmable Music Selector), CD random and repeat playback as well as an audio input/music port for instant connection to portable MP3 players.

The XLD257NH’s superb sound is thanks to the powerful 80 watt per channel amplifier, combined with the six-mode programmed electronic equaliser and the enhanced bass function by the inbuilt X-bass system. The 2 way speakers deliver clear, quality audio reproduction and are magnetically shielded for added protection and reliability. Lower frequency range may be further expanded with an optional subwoofer connected via subwoofer pre-out terminal.

The Sharp XLDK257NH also features an AM/FM digital tuner with 40 station random preset memory and RDS, clock/timer/sleep functions and a full function remote control for added convenience.

The Sharp XL-DK257NH is available now from all leading electrical retailers priced at $329.00 RRP.
