Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on April 11th, 2011

JBL has now started shipping their new On Air Wireless Speaker System which is specially designed for iOS devices. This is among the first AirPlay-enabled speakers capable of streaming iTunes 10 music or Internet radio directly from your computer. We also love that it looks like it belongs in a spaceship cockpit.

This speaker system can use your existing Wi-Fi or Ethernet to connect to your PC or Mac iTunes library and makes the link with Apple’s AirPlay technology. It also sports a small LCD screen so you can see the album artwork and song info when an iOS device is not docked.

We may have more iDocks then there are iThings in existence, but we still need more. JBL is here to fill that need. The company has just unveiled its first iPad speaker dock, the OnBeat. It’s compatible with iPod touches, iPhones and iPads. We aren’t sure about the iPad 2.

It will provide music of course, but it will also stream Netflix and YouTube content directly to your television via a composite video output. The 3.5mm auxiliary jack makes it compatible with other devices as well. It will cost you $149.95 and it ships next month.

Posted in iPod Accessories by Conner Flynn on December 21st, 2010

The FCC has recently looked at the On Air Wireless dock from JBL. This device is the company’s first AirPlay-capable speaker dock. On Air Wireless will allow users to play from a docked iPhone or iPod, and also push audio over a Wi-Fi connection. It will also be compatible with your iPad or computer. All while looking like a toy steering wheel.

The device features a generous LCD display located on the dock that displays the current time, track info or FM radio station. We don’t know when this dock will arrive, but we will likely be seeing it at CES next month.

jblcreature3-sgSome folks like quirky things. These folks eschew the average and normal in favor of something that is different and cool. Personally, I just like things that are cool and the JBL Creature II speakers I used to own were certainly cool. JBL announced its new Creature III speakers today.

The new speakers share a close resemblance to the previous version and look like ghosts from Pac Man. JBL calls them Sci-Fi inspired. The speakers are a 2.1 system with a pair of satellites and a woofer. The sats are 3″ x 3″ x 2-3/4″ with a 40mm driver. The subwoofer is a 3-inch unit measuring 9″ x 9″ x 9″.

JBL helps guys get wife approval on 5.1 surround sound

Posted in Home Theater by Shane McGlaun on September 5th, 2008

JBL WEM-1 Wireless Expansion ModuleI remember trying to get my wife to agree to let me put 5.1 surround sound in our living room when we bought our first house. She was of the opinion that two small speaker wires running along the bottom of the wall would be the first thing other women would see when they walked in the house. I was of the opinion that she was crazy, but as is the way of women, she won out — for a while.

Thankfully, guys can preempt the old “wires are ugly” argument when they tell the wife or significant other that they want a surround sound system in the living room thanks to JBL. The new JBL WEM-1 Wireless Expansion module will turn wired loudspeakers into wireless units. The JBL system uses a receiver and amplifier unit with 50W of power.

JBL iPod Alarm Clock with HD
I bring you more CES 2008 goodness. The On Time 200ID lets you wake up to your iPod, iPhone, radio, or a simple buzzer. If you want to connect other devices, it also has a 1/8th-inch line input. The one-piece speaker has a backlit LCD as well as touch-sensitive controls, and a backup battery to preserve your settings if power is interrupted.

The On Time 400IHD is pretty similar, but adds dual alarms and an HD Radio receiver for picking up HD stations. It also supports iTunes tagging; just press a button when you hear something you like, and when you sync your iPod in iTunes, it will let you find and buy it quickly.
