JBL Apple Expo 2006
UPDATED Harman Kardon's multimedia brand JBL saw the introduction of several new iPod and computer speaker systems in time for the opening of Apple Expo 2006. Two of these are smaller versions of existing units: the JBL Micro Radial reduces the size of the desktop Radial iPod speakers and shrinks the price to $150, while the battery-powered JBL On Stage Micro at $100 is more affordable and portable than the earlier On Stage II. Another two speakers share a completely new desktop 2.1-speaker design as their foundation. The $130 JBL Spot uses a mushroom-shaped subwoofer and satellites and can be customized with different-colored replaceable shells; the JBL Spyro (pictured, $130) shares the same subwoofer but exchanges customization for unique flower-shaped satellites.
