Intempo today announced it will launch the industry’s first iPod docking station and speaker system, with a dual band DAB digital and FM radio, built-in free. The RDI-03 will retail through Dixons, Currys.digital, Comet and www.Amazon.co.uk and will be in-store from the end of October, priced at around £99.

Intempo’s DAB digital radio heritage will converge with its market leading speaker-docks to produce the powerful RDI-03. The innovative high-end design will be available in classic glossy ‘piano’ black and has a 30watt output, including a 15watt subwoofer. The RDI-03 will be compatible with the iPod family and MP3 players and will play, sync and charge*. The ‘DAB-dock’ will also have an alarm with sleep and snooze. All functionality will be controlled either manually or with the 19-key remote control.

“In order to make DAB compelling for the iPod generation, we are letting them access it through a familiar medium – MP3 speaker-docks. Many DAB radios on the market today have a 3.5mm jack which will play iPod tunes through the radio speaker; at Intempo we’ve turned this notion on its head, revolutionising the DAB market by offering it free, with our RDI-03 high end speakers.” Said Bernadette Spofforth, Managing Director of Intempo

“Intempo has produced an award-winning range of DAB radios and is number one in the UK 2.0 speaker market according to industry market research analysts, so putting DAB digital radio into docks is a marriage made in consumer tech heaven. With DAB sales now in excess of five million and no wane in the iPod’s popularity, we expect the RDI-03 to be a fantastic Christmas seller.” Spofforth concluded.

Notes to editors :

* The RDI-03 will not charge the iPod Shuffle
