JVC introduced four iPod-supporting audio products at CES this week.
The products — part of Apple's 'Made for iPod' scheme — are described as being focused on delivering a top-quality audio experience. All offer an iPod dock and most also offer a USB Host for playback from most flash audio players.
The range includes the UX-EP300, a 2.1-channel DVD theatre system featuring 3D Phonic Front Sound technology; the UX-EP100, an ultra-compact two-channel desktop music system with CD/MP3/WMA playback; the MX-KC58, a powerful 400-watt mini system that is XM-ready; and the RD-HA3 boombox.
The JVC UX-EP300 2.1-channel DVD home theatre speaker system offers JVC's 3D Phonic Front Surround technology, which means it can create a pleasing audio stage.
The UX-EP100 is a low-profile CD system with two speakers and an iPod connection and USB Host connectivity. The system is black and silver and stands a few inches tall. It ships with matching black speakers and offers illuminated touch operation.
The JVC MX-KC58 mini system offers the same iPod connection, control and charging as JVC’s other Made for iPod products. It also offers support for XM satellite radio (not much use in the UK) and can deliver 400 watts of sound.
The RD-HA3 boombox features side-firing subwoofers and a power output of 40 total watts. Available in black or white, the unit supports iPods, other MP3 players and carries a CD player.
The new wave of JVC iPod products are scheduled to begin shipping in April, UK shipping and pricing details haven't been revealed.
