we realize the fact that we are assaulted by an ocean of sound docks but this particular tough ball from Yamaha deserves some mentioning. unlike most sound docks out there, the Yamaha PDX-11 Sound Dock is designed to be totally portable and fits right into tight spaces like a book shelf when you are at home. designed with a 30-pin dock connector for your small iDevices, it is equipped with a single 4-inch cone woofer and a 1-3/8-inch tweeter, a stereo 3.5mm audio jack catering to non-iDevices and can be powered either by a wall outlet or six numbers of AA alkaline batteries. the latter offers about 8 hours of playback and its 3.3 lbs (1.5 kg) mass, together with the conveniently located stainless handle should allow ease of portability to any party that you desire. despite its compact stature, it does come bundled with a remote for hassle free operation. available in four hues, including black, blue, green and white, the Yamaha PDX-11 Sound Dock carries a retail price of $99.95. hit past the jump for a gallery of the Yamaha PDX-11 Sound Dock.
