Audio hardware-maker JBL on Tuesday unveiled its newest speaker system designed for Apple’s iPod MP3 player.
The JBL Radial features 60 watts of power and four aluminum-domed Odyssey full-range drivers, which are driven by neodymium magnets, allowing for superior dynamic range, according to JBL. The system also includes two JBL technologies—Computer-Optimized Equalization and Optimized Compression Topology—that the company says ensures clean and accurate sound at high-output levels.
Connected to a television, users can view videos or photos using the JBL Radial and their docked iPod. The Radial also includes an RF smart remote gives users full iPod control, allowing them to change tracks, browse through libraries, adjust settings, and scroll through extras.
When docked, the Radial will charge the iPod—it also includes a connector on the back so you can sync your iPod with iTunes on your computer.
JBL Radial is compatible with all docking iPods, including the 5G iPod and iPod nano, and comes equipped with a mini stereo jack connection for use with other devices. Offered in either black or white, JBL Radial has a suggested retail price of $299.95. The JBL Radial iPod speaker system will be available in June 2006.
