Take a look at the image of the $30,000 iNuke Boom iPod dock from Behringer above, and we mean really look. You maybe able to make out the iPod Touch that's mounted right there on top of this beast of an audio system.
So the dimensions are rather impressive (enough to give anyone a penis-envy-esque state about their current iPod dock): 8-foot wide by 4-foot tall, weighing in at over 700 pounds and churning out an insurmountable 10,000 watts of sound for something that's going to be available to consumers. The Boom is going to be deafening audiences when it makes its public debut at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January, and forms part of Behringer's new line of around 50 new products that will go under its new sub-brand for consumer electronics, Eurosound. Take a look at the press release below.
