The last time we saw this speaker dock designed for the Creative Zen Vision:M and Zen V (Plus) DAPs was when it was called the TravelDock Z500. Although it’s now dubbed the PlayDock Z500, the system’s specs haven’t changed since then. It still features high-performance drivers, Creative’s Wide Stereo Effect, and an integrated subwoofer with bass control.
The Z500 can be powered with eight C batteries (16 hours of continuous playback) or with the included power adapter (unlimited playback if you’re on top of your utility bills). Like the TravelSound Zen V system, the Z500 is equipped with an antenna to take advantage of the FM tuner built into the Vision:M and V Plus players.
Available in Singapore on Black Friday, the PlayDock Z500 is priced at $200.
