iBox/iStereo - would you buy one?
iBox/iStereo - Would you buy one?
If Apple were to come out with the below, would you buy one:
- Bookshelf type stereo.
- Amplifier and speakers by Onkyo or other quality company.
- iPod touch-like touch screen (a little larger).
- 10/100/1000 Ethernet.
- 3.5" HDD/SDD (capacity options: 64GB - 1TB).
- CD/DVD drive to rip music with (optional?).
I have often wondered if Apple would ever introduce such a product. Would it cannibalize their existing iPod docking systems or attract more sales? Is there some overlap with Apple TV here, who knows...but I'd like to see one.

Or you could plug a Mac Mini (or any other computer for that matter) into an existing stereo...
Would need to see more on what you envision this product actually does. Where's the innovation?

This is why I think Apple should offer the software to Blu-ray Disc manufacturers. I have a Samsung BD player with Netflix and Pandora. If Apple TV was this easy to use, I would have 10 of them. OK, not really. But they would sell a lot better. Add a small SSD to some of these units or hook up external HDDs and you've got a gold mine.
