Creative PlayDock Z500 Speakers

creative playdock z500 Creative PlayDock Z500 Speakers

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.

With plenty of power, this should have some decent output.. hopefully this won’t take another year to arrive in stores here in the US.

Does anyone have experience with the Playdock? What’s the sound like? Last year I bought a Zen Vision M, and I’d really like to get speakers so I can use it at home as a normal stereo
