The CMT-CX5BiP: Sony’s new futuristic HiFi
Sony Europe has unveiled its latest wall-mountable iPhone HiFi system, the CMT-CX5BiP. Sony’s new system boasts a slim design and 40-watt removable speakers, great if you haven’t much space. It also has a host of other features including a CD player, USB and aux ports as well as standard FM radio and DAB/DAB+ radio tuners. Sony has added its Dynamic Sound Generator X-tra (DSGX) to deliver a more vibrant sound.
The CMT-CX5BiP iPhone HiFi System will be available in the UK in Black or White from August 2011 but Sony has not yet released a price for the new system.
The perfect addition to a bedroom or living room, the new Hi-Fi systems are presented in a streamlined, spindle-shaped design and come in either black or white. Compatible with iPhone/iPod, the CMT-CX5 keeps your sophisticated decor clean and uncluttered, providing a happy harmony of style and sound.
Matt Coupe, Audio Category Marketing Manager, Sony UK commented: “Great audio quality is now not enough for customers looking into new HiFi systems, they are also looking for products that will work well with the style of their homes. The CMT-CX5 series represent a creative approach to product design combined that with an intuitive user interface so that customers can get to whatever music they want in the quickest possible time. Feedback from consumer testing groups has been very positive and we look forward to seeing the wider market reaction.”
The product consists of three boxes (main unit and 2 speakers), which can be grouped for efficiency and aesthetic purposes or separated depending upon the stylistic preferences. Key holes on the back panel give users freedom to either mount the system on the wall, or display via shelf set-up. The Dynamic Sound Generator X-tra delivers a clear, crisp sound that can be enjoyed via a number of audio inputs, including USB, CD, Audio-in, or Tuner, as well as simply by inserting one’s iPod or iPhone into the dock. In addition, the provision of DAB / DAB+ tuners means that users can enjoy the ever increasing amount of content that is being delivered by this channel.
The CMT-CX5 is available in the UK from August 2011.
