JVC Releases Array of iPod/iPhone Speaker Docks at CES

JVC unveiled a whole slew of new iPod/iPhone speaker docks at CES this week. We are loving the variety of styles that JVC has been rolling out so far–especially the company’s ode to the great Kaboom Boombox, which is now the JVC “RB-NV50 Kaboom” iPod/iPhone speaker dock system. Although some of their new products are a little pricey, with JVC’s performance standards and all the extra features thrown into these docks, we feel it’s worth the splurge. Check out some of JVC’s recently released iPod/iPhone speaker docks…

JVC also revealed two new multifunctional iPod docks–- a one-piece table radio-style entertainment center with CD player and FM tuner and a clock radio that offers the options of AC or battery power. The new JVC RD-N1 CD player/tuner/iPod dock offers a top-mounted iPod dock, CD player and FM tuner, plus a front audio input for connecting other playback devices. The RD-N1 will be available in April for $129.95.
