Executive Overview

Based on the popular and aesthetically-appealing iP1, iHome's new iP3 Speaker System for iPod/iPhone is the newest addition to its acclaimed Studio Series collection. The iP3 utilizes many of the same features that made the iP1 a standout, including Bongiovi Acoustics' Digital Power Station (DPS) technology, a clean minimalist design, and component video output for playback of iPhone/iPod videos on TV.

"We knew we had something special last year when the introduction of our Studios Series line struck a chord with both critics and consumers. Our focus for the iP3 was to create an audio system that preserved the high-end characteristics of the Studio Series, while making it more accessible to consumers in terms of size and pricepoint."

- Evan Stein, Vice President of Marketing, iHome

The iP3 Speaker System for iPod/iPhone allows users to dock, charge and play their favorite music and videos. And we mean videos - the unit has an A/V output jack that includes component vide, so all those downloaded videos can be played on your TV as well. Equipped with a 50 watt, class D amplifier, two state-of-the-art 3.5" coaxial neodymium speakers, and Bongiovi Acoustics DPS technology, the iP3 achieves studio quality sound that is encased in a sleek, modern design that adds elegance to any setting, all for $199.

Bongiovi Acoustics DPS technology was developed by a team of audio engineers with years of experience in the music, television and motion picture recording industry.  It is a complex, chip-based algorithm, custom-tuned to each and every product to maximize performance and provide studio quality sound, the way the artist intended it to be heard.  The processor involved is active, meaning it constantly scans the program material in real time and effectively improves transients and harmonics that results in amazing highs, lows and clarity across all frequencies and volume levels.
