Chinon (http://www.chinonusa.com) has released the Chinon AVi, an US$179.99 iPod docking/charging station featuring a 7-inch LCD monitor to display movies, music videos, and TV shows purchased at the iTunes Store.
Fashioned after the American “boom box” the AVi also plays iTunes music and standard MP3 music on its dual speakers. Plus, it comes with an ATSC digital TV tuner for picking up Over-The-Air TV signals to view local channels for free. Users can also showcase their digital photos on the LCD.
The AVi’s retro frame is complimented by a modern rubberized black finish, silver trim, and large controls. The AVi package comes with a wireless remote control, TV antenna, AC/DC adapter, AV cables, and aux-in cable.
