CES: New JBL On Time features HD radio

In addition to its new On Stage products, JBL has unveiled two new On time iPod speakers systems at CES.

The On Time 400IHD features HD Radio AM and FM reception, FM multicasting capability, an iPod dock and a clock with dual alarms.

According to JBL, the On Time 400IHD system can store “live” song information from select HD Radio stations with the push of a “Tag” button. That song “wish list” can be downloaded to the iPod the next time the iPod is docked in the system. When the iPod is next connected to iTunes, the “wish list,” as well as the option to purchase the listed songs, will be displayed.

Available in Spring 2008, the On Time 400IHD will cost $299.95.

Also announced today is the On Time 200ID, which includes a digital clock, alarm and radio and a menu-driven user interface. The 200ID allows the user to wake up to music stored on the iPod and includes a battery backup in case of a power outage.

he JBL On Time 200ID system is compatible with all docking versions of the iPod, including the iPod touch, nano and G3 iPod classic. It will be available in the winter of 2008 and costs $199.95.

Rounding out its CES announcements on Monday, JBL unveiled the Duet 200 iPod speaker system. The Duet comes with a built-in mini stereo jack that makes connection to any computer, iPod, iPhone, MP3 or other digital music player easy.

The JBL Duet 200 will cost $119.95 and will be available at major retailers starting in March 2008.
