JBL iPod, iPhone docks
JBL today unveiled a slew of music docks designed for Apple's iPod and iPhone. The company revealed no less than six different docking stations with built-in speakers due to ship at various times between now and Winter of 2008. The company's new offerings include the JBL On Time 200ID, JBL On Stage IIIP, On Time 400IHD, On Stage 200ID and On Stage 400ID, and JBL Duet 200. The company also announced that it is offering its JBL On Stage Micro in new color variations.
JBL On Time 200ID
The JBL On Time 200ID system -- which includes a digital clock, alarm, and radio -- features an intuitive, menu-driven user interface to make operation simple. The device also enables users to wake up to favorite songs stored on an iPod, while the backlit LCD eases navigation and an automatic dimming option provides various brightness levels.
JBL On Stage IIIP
The JBL On Stage(TM)* IIIP high-performance loudspeaker docking station is designed for use with Apple's iPhone, offering the same functionality as other On Stage systems with an IR remote for track selection as well as menu navigation and volume control. A mini stereo jack supports non-iPhone and non-iPod audio devices, and the option of AC power or battery operation allows use at home or on-the-go.
On Time 400IHD
JBL's On Time 400IHD system allows users to listen to static-free reception on HD Radio stations with no subscription fee. The device tunes in to FM stations with CD-quality sound, and stores 'live' song information from select HD Radio stations with the push of a 'Tag' button.
Information about JBL's On Stage 200ID and On Stage 400ID, as well as the company's JBL Duet 200 will surface as the products are unveiled at the CES trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada.
