Adding to the selection of Lightning accessories for the iPhone 5 and the latest iPod touch, Philips has announced four new speaker docks with built-in Lightning connectors.

There are two docking speakers, a bedroom dock with clock, as well as a music system. They should be available for purchase in time for Christmas.

Philips Lifestyle Music System (DCM2067) – an elegant and slim design that looks good in any modern interior. As well as charging and playing music from Lightning enabled devices through its retractable Lightning dock; the system also includes a CD player and FM radio. Even with its slender footprint, the system delivers 20W RMS power to provide a great sound performance.

Philips Portable Docking Speaker (DS7580) – slim and compact enough to fit in your bag, it features Philips’ wOOx technology that provides a rich and deep bass. Precise tuning between the speaker drivers ensures a smooth transition between low- to mid- and high-frequencies. With a built-in battery that lasts for approximately eight hours you can enjoy your music anywhere.

Philips Room to Room Docking Speaker (DS3205) – incorporates high-quality neodymium speakers, which are great for better bass response and a pure balanced sound quality.

Philips Bedroom Docking Speaker (DS1155) – has a 360-degree design, providing rich omnidirectional sound to fill your bedroom. The clock display of the docking speaker automatically synchronizes with the clock of your Apple device, and the speaker also includes a USB port at the back of the speaker allowing users to easily charge a second mobile device.

Philips didn't release any pricing info, nor which retailers will carry them, but Apple's Retail and Online Stores have carried Philips docks in the past.

There is a fifth Lightning dock that Philips shows on its Flickr page, however the Philips Urban Micro System (DCM3155) goes unmentioned in the press release.

Here is the pricing:

DS7580 129.99
DS3205 129.99
DS1155 89.99

Also the Urban Micro is slated to launch first in Europe, which is why it was not included in the US release.

Hope that helps.

Yep, availability and pricing needed. I swear that by the time half of the promised iPhone 5 docks come out we'll already have the iPhone 6!

Yeah, but almost certainly with the same 'Lightning' connector. APPLE aren't going to shoot themselves in the foot by changing their dock-connector again after just ONE generation of iDevices. Lightning is a pretty sophisticated standard that we'll probably have for quite a while. But to your point, maybe another good reason to not instantly jump on new technology, and let the accessory manufacturers catch up a bit.

Love it!

For a company that keeps a relatively low profile in the US, they have come up with some pretty interesting products over the years; maybe a bit of that European 'Flair'.

it looks good but the iphone is blocking part of the speaker...
I'm picky with my sound technology and yes there is a difference when 1/3 of the speaker sound is being bounced off an object 4 centimeters away. :(

Is anyone offering a doc with BOTH lightening and old 30 pin connectivity?

Such a device would go to the top of my buy list by having the benefit of allowing the use and charging of numerous i-stuff in my house. I have a iphone 5, but kids have a couple 30 pinners that are going to still be around for at least another two years.
