Product Information

iPhone/iPad speaker dock embedded in desktop PC

iMON SmartBay is an iPhone/iPad speaker dock embedded in desktop PC.

Different from the other docking products generally as an external USB device, the iMON SmartBay is embedded inside a desktop PC as an internal device. You can enjoy music from iPhone/iPad through PC speakers, as well as charging and synchronizing iPhone/iPad.

The device is a 5.25 inch bay type so it can be easily installed into your desktop PC. Moreover, various useful features are provided using the connection between PC and iPhone/iPad.

Harmonious design with desktop PC

The 5.25 inch bay type, iMON SmartBay introduces an open cover which can easily be handled with a finger, so that the cover is kept closed for clean look when the iPhone/iPad is not on the dock.

The iMON Mini remote control can be operated within 10 meters far distance, no matter what the cover is open or closed.

The elegant, high-glossy black design shows great harmony with iPhone/iPad.

Smart charging

iMON SmartBay supports battery charging as a basic feature of speaker dock. The conventional way of charging will mess up your desk with the charging cable and iPhone/iPad. However, the simple docking of iPhone/iPad on the iMON SmartBay will keep your desk clean and 100% charged battery. Especially, iPhone/iPad can be charged even when PC is not turned on.

Smart sound output

One of the biggest advantages of the iMON SmartBay is that the PC speakers can be used for sound output from iPhone/iPad.

Conventional iPhone/iPad docking speakers are expensive compared to PC speakers. However, the iMON SmartBay provides low-cost and efficiency because the existing PC speakers are used as iPhone/iPad docking speakers. Moreover, space on your desk will be saved as well.

Like the smart charging feature, you can enjoy music from iPhone/iPad even when the desktop PC is turned off. While iPhone/iPad is connected the iMON SmartBay after shutting down the PC, music can be played through PC speakers with charging simultaneously.

This remote control supports various media playback Apps, such as Melon and YouTube, as well as the provided music App in iPhone/iPad. The remote-control feature using the iMON Mini Remote also works even after the desktop PC is turned off.

Furthermore, the iMON Mini Remote can control the PC system and playback of multimedia as well as iPhone/iPad. Desktop PC can be turned on and off using the iMON Mini Remote so that it can be used as a media center. Besides, iPhone/iPad can play and control a media library stored in PC or YouTube video using an iOS App, Remote+ Lite described in the next section.

Supports Remote+ Lite (Smart phone controls PC)

iMON SmartBay also provides an iOS App, Remote+ Lite for remote control of PC. The Remote+ Lite is an App in the Apple App Store to be installed in iPhone/iPad, enabling the iPhone/iPad to remote-control a media library in desktop PC.
