Acco: Pioneer Japan rolls out new audio system for your living room


Pioneer Japan yesterday unveiled a new in-house audio system, the ACCO A-IW001 [JP], which comes with a set of speakers that need to be mounted on the ceiling. The device is also specifically designed to be iPod-compatible and comes with an iPod cradle.

Users can choose the music they want to listen to via the control device that also supports Internet radio. ACCO stands for Acoustic/Condition, and Pioneer is marketing the audio system as a lifestyle product.


The company hasn’t said yet if ACCO will ever become available outside Japan. Over here, the audio system went on sale already with prices starting at a whopping $1,400 (depending on the speakers you want with it).
