Logitech Unveils Pure-Fi Dream and Anywhere iPod Docks

Pure-Fi.jpgThough Logitech has had a few iPod docks in the past, it never seemed to be a major initiative. Now, the company is getting in the game for real with the debut of the all-new Pure-Fi Dream Bedroom Music System ($249.99), a clock/radio-based dock with some delightfully nerdy features (motion sensors!), and the revamped lithium-ion battery-powered mm50, now more respectably dubbed the Pure-Fi Anywhere Compact Speaker System ($149.99). The Dream merges the radio and iPod experiences with touches like one-button access to six playlists, 12 FM presets and six AM presets (like you'll ever need that many). It appears to be a pretty robust system, sound wise, too, with 3" woofers and "high-definition" tweeters. But let's face it, the real allure is the motion sensing: The system lights up when you approach it in the dark, and engage the snooze alarm when you wave your hand over it in the early morn.

The Pure-Fi Anywhere goes further than its mm50 predecessor with a souped-up remote. Like the Dream, it gives you one-touch shuffle and repeat buttons, so you don't have to dig several menus in to find those options on an iPod. (Really, it's one of the only things that still annoys me about the iPod interface.) Its built-in lithium-ion battery lasts for 10 hours, and has a light-up battery-life indicator. Which is great if you're already nearby a power socket anyway, but of not much use when you're at the beach or out on some camping trip.
