Sony Muteki Audio Systems Monstrously Dwarf Your iPod

Sony's two new Muteki audio shelf systems, which are both "Made for iPods," have tossed aside that whole thin, streamlined aesthetic. The result: the iPod looks like something climbing out of a monster truck.

The LBT-ZX66i delivers 560 watts of sound through two separate three-way bass reflex speakers, each of which have a 7-inch dual hybrid subwoofer and a 1-inch horn tweeter. Besides being iPod-ready, it also comes with a five-disk CD changer and Game Sync Mixing for hooking up to video game systems. It'll be out in March for $US450.

The LBT-ZX99i, pictured at top,i one-ups the 66i with four two-way bass reflex speakers containing 9-inch subwoofers and two 2-inch tweeters. It can be cranked up to 720 watts and will be available in March for $US650.
