JVC portable stereo, dock
JVC has begun shipping the RA-P10, its first portable stereo system featuring an iPod dock. The device comes with a remote control, offers 4W per channel, and boasts an FM tuner with 20 presets. The JVC RA-P10 can run on six AA batteries, whereas most other stereo docks require D-size or even proprietary batteries. An included AC adapter also allows users to power the device from any wall socket, according to Electronista. iPod owners can view the built-in LCD display, make use of a snooze alarm clock, and monitor room temperature with a built-in thermometer. The system is shipping for $130.
