MacLife Magazine announces the Kanto SYD 5 as a winner in its "Gear of the Year" awards. The only iPod Speaker System to win an award.
"After testing a lab full of iPod speaker docks this year, we've determined an incontestible truth: Either go big or go home. Indeed, after being bombarded with flimsy, tiny, tinny docks festooned with clocks, radios, cute graphics, and other distracting "features," we found audio excellence in the Kanto SYD 5." -December 2009 issue of MacLife
iPod Universal Dock Charge your iPod while it's playing and control the SYD 5 from across the room with sleek remote control unit.
Video output If you have music videos on your iPod you can play them onto your big flat panel TV while you listen to the “uncommonly robust sound” on your SYD 5.
Hand crafted wood cabinet The SYD 5 design utilizes a acoustically designed wood cabinet, delivering a unique, rich ﬁnish with superior sound.
Volume Control One particular feature that everyone comments about is the additional manual volume control on the back. Sometimes the simplest things just work so why change them.
