At the Meridian suite in the Venetian, in the midst of their digital speaker systems and high-end components, was the portable F80. Like so many high-end manufacturer's, Meridian is courting the lifestyle consumer, which includes support for iPod users. The F80 is a portable, 2.1 channel, iPod speaker system that comes in five Ferrari colors.
Offering a total of 80 watts to the two speakers and rear mounted subwoofer, the F80 contains a CD/DVD drive, AM/FM tuner, Band III DAB Digital Radio and a wide assortment of I/O's, including a composite video out.
Once docked an iPod can be controlled via the F80 remote and song information is viewed on the OLED readout.
The F80 is made using the same mineral filled composite material used by Ferrari, providing extreme rigidity, yet is still lightweight.
At $2995, the F80 is likely to appeal mostly to Ferrari users than the average Joe. None the less its performance is incredibly impressive given its diminutive size.
