"The iPod is an icon in the consumer electronics industry today, and the iPort is the first product that integrates it effortlessly into a distributed audio system," Mitch Witten, Sonance vice president of sales and marketing, said.
"In one room, or in every room in the house, just walk over to the iPort, drop in your iPod and your entire music library is now part of your home audio system," Witten explained.
The iPort, which will begin shipping before the end of the year, will come in two versions: one that can be installed in any wall location and connected locally or to the main audio system, and a rack-mountable version to integrate the iPod within an audio equipment rack.
Additionally, the company has said the iPort will include parts to accommodate all Apple iPod models, as well as connections for power, control and audio output. Pricing for the docking station and accessories are to be announced.
