According to a company press release, JVC is introducing three modestly priced “micro audio systems” that integrate sleek aesthetics with intuitive operation.
The most expensive model, the UX-GN6 ($200), features a top-loading iPod dock (with a video output), a USB port, a front audio input, a CD player, and an AM/FM tuner. The UX-GN6 has two 2-way speakers driven by an internal 120-watt amplifier. Other distinctive features include two innovative touch-sensitive illuminated control panels—one that controls volume and one that controls the CD player’s forward/skip and reverse/skip functions with the swipe of a finger. Other functions are operated with touch panel controls. The UX-GN6 has a motion sensor that enables users to wake it from standby mode by waving their hands by the front panel, illuminating the controls and LED display.
The press release says that the UX-LP5 ($150) features a retractable iPod dock (with a video output), a front audio input, a CD player, and an AM/FM tuner. The system incorporates a 70-watt amplifier and 2-way speakers.
The release adds that the UX-G200 ($100) is a desktop system with 16 watts of total output power and features a USB port, a front audio input, a clock, a CD player, and an AM/FM tuner.
All of the systems will be available in March.
