JVC’s latest addition to its NX-TV series is the 15 x 15 watt NX-TC5. The good news is that the device features an iPod dock and 4.3-inch LCD. The bad news is that video playback is limited to the built-in 1Seg digital TV tuner or WMV video stored on USB media. Which is strange. No iPod video for you.
It features a movable front-panel for getting the optimal viewing angle and a motion-activated display. Some other features are 512MB of on-board storage for photos, AM/FM tuner, and a CD player that will rip audio to MD or USB stick at 4x speeds.
The TC5 should hit Japan in late August for about $655 or about $549 as model NX-TC3 if you don’t need MD.
