The Wall Street Journal Praises DLO's HomeDock Deluxe for iPodDLO Release
Walt Mossberg Says Using the DLO HomeDock Deluxe is ?Liberating? Experience for iPod Owners
CHARLESTON, SC, MAY 16, 2006 - Digital Lifestyle Outfitters (DLO), makers of the DLO TransPod and other exciting accessories for the iPod, today announced that its newly introduced HomeDock Deluxe was widely praised by Walt Mossberg of the Wall Street Journal, one of the most respected technology experts on the planet.
The HomeDock Deluxe, which is the only dock that lets owners view and select their iPod's music on a television screen, "is more satisfying to use than Apple's iPod AV Connection Kit," according to Mossberg. "Using the DLO HomeDock Deluxe was liberating compared with working with the limited Apple device," writes Mossberg in his weekly column, The Mossberg Solution.
He goes on to conclude that, "overall, the DLO HomeDock Deluxe is more satisfying to use than Apple's iPod AV Connection Kit... [i]ts remote is more functional than Apple's, and it just works more easily."
The HomeDock Deluxe is the world's first iPod dock that lets owners view and select their iPod's music on a television screen. It comes with a multi-function remote control that navigates through the iPod's music, videos and photos. The HomeDock Deluxe is available online at www.dlo.com and at major iPod retailers nationwide for $149.99.
The HomeDock Deluxe adds a new twist to the iPod by displaying music content onto a television screen and allowing users to navigate, select and play their songs using an included remote control. Browsing through Playlists, Artists, Albums, Songs, Genres and more from the sofa with the HomeDock Deluxe is a completely new experience for iPod owners. Users can control over 14 playback functions with the remote control. The HomeDock Deluxe features an original, customizable interface. Song information is large and easy to read from anywhere in the room.
"Using the DLO HomeDock Deluxe was liberating compared with working with the limited Apple device. [The remote] is a little bigger and is black, rather than white, with slots that hold its 18-button remote and the iPod. It uses the same cables and jacks, powering up from a wall plug and hooking into the TV with an AC cord," writes Mossberg.
He goes on to say that "for listening to the iPod's music through your speakers, the DLO HomeDock Deluxe pulls ahead. It offers a special mode that lists music on your television screen, not just on your iPod screen like the Apple kit, so you can see song details clear across the room. And overall, the DLO remote is much easier to use than Apple's."
