JBL On Time for iPod
today launched JBL On Time, a high-performance iPod speaker dock and "time machine." JBL On Time features a radio, clock and dual alarm, and offers a menu-driven, intuitive user interface. JBL On Time is built with a high-performance sound system that offers horizontal acoustic level optimization, a design that provides a full, rich sound field from any direction. "With JBL On Time, music lovers can now wake up to the sound of their favorite song stored on their iPods. The easy-to-use interface is part of an attractive display that includes a large backlit LCD, making menu navigation a snap. A dome light provides a soft glow over the iPod, and an automatic dimming option provides the correct brightness level in any environment." JBL On Time is compatible with all docking versions of the iPod (and can also be used with other MP3 players, CD players, desktop and laptop computers, and satellite radio systems). It is available for $300.
