The first update is with JBL's On Stage. The On Stage IIIP system is compatible with the iPhone and all dockable iPods. The system comes with an IR remote for iPod track selection, menu navigation and volume control, and it also includes a mini stereo jack for use with non-iPhone/-iPod devices. The new On Stage can be used with AC power or batteries.
With its USB 2.0 connection the On Stage IIIP can be used to synchronize an iPod or iPhone with a Mac or PC. The On Stage IIIP will be available in February 2008 for US$169.95.
JBL also launched the On Stage 200ID and the On Stage 400ID systems. Like the IIIP, the 200ID and 400ID come with an IR remote for iPod track selection, menu navigation and volume control; a mini stereo jack for non-iPod products is also included.
The 200ID and 400ID systems are compatible with all docking iPod models. The On Stage 200ID system adds iPhone compatibility.
The On Stage 200ID will be available in February and costs $149.95; the On Stage 400ID will be available in March and costs $249.95.
