“Consumers are looking to play back content from an ever-growing number of components and portable devices.

The XL-HF200P HiFi component system provides music enjoyment from different sources via an iPod and iPhone-compatible dock, CD player and a USB port for portable player connection, as well as MP3 and WMA file compatibility.

iPod/iPhone Clock Radio Speaker Docks Offer Video Playback on TV
Sharp’s new DK-CL5P and DK-CL3P iPod/iPhone clock radio speaker docks allow users to wake up to their favorite music stored on popular portables, including those that can be connected via a 3.5mm audio plug, as well as FM radio.
