Denon Cocoon Home iPod dock does Android and Windows Phone too
Meet the Denon Cocoon Home, a top of the line new iPod and iPhone dock with some serious style, sounds skills and wireless AirPlay streaming tech. But that’s not enough to cut it these days: unusually, it also works with Android and Windows Phone smartphones too.
Revealed just this morning, the Denon Cocoon iPod dock packs in four 25W amps for booming, crisp sound, and if you’re feeling flush, multiple models can be peppered around the house, each streaming different songs at the same time – it offers wide format support including lossless FLAC playback.
Alternatively, you can stream internet radio stations through it, and it can all be controlled through a free Denon Cocoon app for your iPhone – which will also be available on Android and Windows Phone. This, combined with Windows Play To wireless streaming support, makes the Denon Cocoon Home a complete dock for Google and Microsoft smartphones – these are still thin on the ground, due to the lack of a universal port for audio.
Sounds good? There’s just one thing you might want to bear in mind before whipping out the plastic: the new iPhone is widely believed to use a brand new, smaller pin adaptor than all other Apple devices. We should see it debut sometime before Christmas, so you might want to hold on just a bit longer to find out.
The Denon Cocoon Home is available in black or white from this month, priced at £499. A smaller version with a rechargeable battery and carry handle, the Denon Cocoon Portable, is available in black for the same price.
