Vista, Calif. — Directed Electronics announced a new “executive” desktop docking station for both Sirius Satellite Radio receivers and Apple iPods.
Shipping in September, the Executive Docking Station comes with a cradle for the Sirius Sportster plug-and-play receivers, with optional, interchangeable docking cradles for the iPod and other portable media devices. The iPod option will ship in the fourth quarter and a third cradle for other media players is planned for early 2006, said Directed.
The Station includes micro speakers with a 20-watt amplifier and outputs to connect to a computer and other devices. It also folds for transport.
The Executive Docking Station will have a suggested retail price of $199.99, and the additional cradle kits are expected to fall in the $69.99 to $79.99 range.
