Sharp 2008 Audio Systems Offer Full Palette Of Enhanced Features For Consumers' Digital Music Enjoyment
Sharp is introducing two new mini-audio systems to its broad mini- and micro-audio line. The CD-DK890N and CD-DK891N models are designed to deliver powerful sound and advanced features to meet the needs of today’s music enthusiasts. iPod® connectivity and front-panel Audio input lead the list of features that make Sharp music systems among the most advanced models available.
“We have found that consumers want a wide range of audio playback options in order to share their favorite music that is saved on different devices,” said Bob Pleyer, senior product marketing manager, audio, Entertainment Products Division, Sharp. “Sharp’s shelf systems deliver the powerful, pristine sound you’d expect from a high-quality audio system along with additional playback features designed to meet the needs of a broad range of users.”
Leading Sharp’s powerful mini-audio system line are the new stylish, yet practical CD-DK890N and CD-DK891N. These models offer the ideal audio solution for almost any environment. A built-in iPod-docking slot allows users to play their music collection and charge their iPod at the same time. Available in black (CD-DK890N) and silver finish (CD-DK891N), the 250-watt systems include a two-way speaker system for precise, clean sound with X Bass for added bass response. These mini-audio systems also feature a five-disc CD changer that allows users to swap out four discs while a fifth is playing for uninterrupted music as well as a digital AM/FM tuner with 40 presets and a full-logic dual cassette deck. The audio systems are compatible with multiple formats including CD-R/CD-RW, MP3 and WMA.
Sharp’s mini-audio system line continues with the 600-watt CD-G14000, which divides amplifier power between left and right speakers and a powered flashing subwoofer. A five-tray CD changer allows users to switch discs while another is playing, and the versatile player handles music CDs and CD-R/RW discs along with MP3 and WMA files. For even more flexibility, the CD-G14000 offers AM/FM radio with 40 station presets and a full-logic double cassette deck.
In the mini component system line, the CD-SW340 offers Sharp’s Music Port for playback of MP3s in addition to CDs. With the five-disc CD changer, users can swap out four discs while the fifth is playing for a seamless listening experience. The 500-watt system includes two speakers and a passive subwoofer for extended bass. Multi-colored lights on the front speakers and subwoofer flash along with the music. Additional audio sources include an AM/FM tuner with 40 station presets and a full-logic dual cassette deck.
The system includes a five-disc CD changer that keeps playing while users change discs that can be standard CDs or CD-R discs with MP3 or WMA files.
The CD-MPX880 is a 125-watt-per-channel mini component system with Music Port for playback of MP3s. The system includes a five-disc CD changer that keeps playing while users change discs that can be standard CDs or CD-R discs with MP3 or WMA files. The two-line text display reads CD tagging information. Additional sources include AM/FM radio with 40 station presets and a full-logic double cassette deck.
The 160-watt XL-DK257N and 64-watt XL-DK227N micro-audio systems combine powerful audio technology with the hip functionality of an iPod docking system, providing playing and charging functions from a sleek pocket-style dock. Stealth single-tray CD players are compatible with multiple formats and music codes including CD-R/CD-RW, MP3 and WMA. Amplifier power provides 80 watts per channel for the XL-DK257 and 32 watts per channel for the XL-DK227. The AM/FM digital tuner offers 40-station random preset memory. The 6-mode Preprogrammed Electronic Equalizer enables users to tailor sound to their preferences. Bass boost is provided by the X-BASS (Extra Bass) System.
