Well, someone certainly loves the iPod—Yamaha. They just announced four new products that all incorporate a dock to add that precious portable into the audio mix.

The MCS-1330 features two channels worth of amplification at 60 watts each, a CD player and two speakers. For those that aren’t iPod-dependent, this unit also has a USB port and analog inputs for adding other devices.

The CRX-430 has a little less power, with two channnels at 25 watts each. Finally, the MCR-330 and MCR-230 drop down even further, with two channels at 20 watts each. These three other models also include a CD player, as well as USB and other ports. However, the MCS-1330 seems to be the top of this heap; Akihabara News has specs on each model.

Engadget says all four units should ship this December, with prices ranging from $300 to $1,233.
