The Ultimate iPod Dock

Here at CasterBlog, we’re not above the occasional bit of self-promotion (or rather, promotion on behalf of our clients) every now and then, particularly when it’s warranted, as is so often the case with our clients. So please indulge me here.

Universal Remote Control has a sick new product called the PSX-2 Personal Server that is the ultimate iPod dock. Bar none. End of story.

The PSX-2 essentially turns your iPod into a full-featured music server.

You know how most iPod docks provide a TV screen interface that basically mimics the iPod menus? The PSX-2 (which you can control via a remote and a TV or, for the real high-end, URC’s swanky MX-6000 touch screen), transforms those iPod menus into a much more user-friendly and much more functional interface that lets you do things with your iPod you could never do before.

For example, with the PSX-2, you can “Play More from This Artist/Genre/etc,” or shuffle on similar parameters (for example, “Shuffle Indie Rock”).

You can create on-the-fly-playlists, which makes the iPod more convenient and social, especially in a party environment.

You get alpha search capability. No more need to get endlessly jiggy with the scroll wheel to find an artist whose name begins with “T”, for example.

You get cover art!

There’s no longer a need to navigate through seemingly endless nests of iPod menus to get to what you want.

And it’s so much more. But I’ll stop there.

URC’s Mitchell Klein put together a cute lo-fi video that displays some of the PSX-2’s capabilities.

If you’re a serious iPod user and you want to get the most out of the little bugger, I highly suggest you check the PSX-2 out. Here’s where you can get your very own.

And now, back to our regularly scheduled CasterMusings, already in progress.
