JBL Unveils the JBL On Stage 200ID and the JBL On Stage 400ID

JBL is unveiling the JBL On Stage 200ID and the JBL On Stage 400ID systems. The latest additions to the JBL line of iPod docking speakers or "stations", the JBL On Stage 200ID and 400ID systems deliver powerful, crisp sound, and feature an attractive contemporary design. Both are feature rich, and both come equipped with IR remotes for iPod track selection, menu navigation and volume control; a mini stereo jack for non-iPod products is also included. Incorporating the Apple iPod Universal Dock adapter, the JBL On Stage 200ID and 400ID systems are compatible with all docking iPod models. The JBL On Stage 400ID system charges a docked iPod (even when the system is off), while its OnePoint design enables connectivity with a USB 2.0 cable for synchronizing an iPod with a Mac or PC.

The JBL On Stage 200ID system adds iPhone compatibility, enabling both iPhone and iPod charging (even with the system off), while its OnePoint design enables connectivity with a USB 2.0 cable for synchronizing an iPhone or an iPod with a Mac or PC. Both units have built-in mini stereo jacks and additional cables for connecting to other digital music player devices, CD players, gaming devices, laptops and desktop computers.

Each unit integrates superior sound, stunning design and outstanding functionality, weighs only slightly more than one pound, and has a footprint of only 12 inches by 3 inches. The JBL On Stage 200ID system is equipped with two 10-watt Phoenix transducers; they provide distinct high frequencies, as well as low-frequency extension for clear, deep bass. For music fans who want even more power, the JBL On Stage 400ID system features four 15-watt Odyssey transducers for accurate high frequencies, while its 30-watt Atlas subwoofer pumps clean, powerful bass. The JBL On Stage 200ID and 400ID units, which are perfect for the home or office, let users experience almost anywhere a personal "concert" from an iPhone (200ID model only), iPod or laptop.

The JBL On Stage 200ID system will be available at major retailers in February, while the JBL On Stage 400ID system will be available at major retailers in March.
