"Meet the new ZN9, the world’s first clock radio for Zune. The ZN9 features several innovative solutions, including wake and sleep to your Zune(tm) music or AM/FM radio presets, a 7-5-2 feature for separate weekday and weekend alarm times, and an extra large, backlit LCD display with dimmer. With our Reson8 speaker chambers, you’ll be able to enjoy stereo sound around the clock. The new ZN9... treat yourself and your Zune right."
I have been absolutely dying to have something like this. Ever since I got a Zune, I wanted a really nice alarm clock dock. I even remember trying to use WinAmp and my desktop back in high school to achieve a perfect marriage of alarm clock and audio. iHome’s ZN9 speaker dock looks absolutely stunning and at $99.99 it’s priced as well as you could possibly hope for something like this. Obviously we’ll have to wait and see when it comes out how it sounds but I definitely will have one of these in my bedroom.
Ceser also mentions on Zune Insider another dock for the Zune coming from iHome but I couldn’t find anything for it on their site. Here’s what he says is coming though:
"ZN10 AM/FM Table Radio - a beautifully designed, retro-classic with rotary dials set in a rich, wood speaker cabinet, the ZN10 allows consumers to listen to the radio or Zune, which charges when docked. A line in jack with included patch cord enables owners to play other CD and MPs players."
I can't wait to see what this one looks like!
