Home theater systems, iPod® docks and iPod player integration are highlights.

LAS VEGAS. – JVC today unveiled a new line of audio products with a focus on design, connectivity, and simple setup and operation. Announced here in conjunction with the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the new line offers performance, ease-of-use and integration with iPod® players.

Dual iPod ® Docking Station The new dual dock NX-PN7 accommodates two iPod players side-by side, charging them simultaneously and offering playback from each through the dock’s speaker system. Supplementing iPod playback is an AM/FM tuner and adding to the unit’s versatility is a clock and timer. In addition, there’s an analog audio input for connecting other devices for playback.

Though the NX-PN7 handles two iPod players, it measures a mere 13 inches wide. It features sleek and sophisticated styling, with a black cabinet and speaker grille, and controls arrayed clearly and logically in a band along the bottom. A remote control is included. Adding a bit of flair are two illuminated strips, one under each docked iPod. These can display one of nine colors – including white, blue, red and others.

Further simplifying setup, there are only three speaker wires to connect. The new system is designed to complement the latest generation of flat panel TVs, with a sleek, black-on-black main unit and small, cylindrical, wall-mountable main speakers.

JVC Makes Home Theater Simple with Three New Home Entertainment Systems Three new JVC home entertainment systems, the TH-G30, TH-G40 and TH-G50, are 1000-watt, 5.1-channel systems comprised of a progressive scan DVD receiver, five speakers and a subwoofer.

In addition, two of the three new systems offer iPod connectivity.

The TH-G50 features wireless rear speakers, simplifying set-up and eliminating the need to run wires across the room. Both the TH-G50 and TH-G40 offer Made for iPod compliance, with a provided docking station that allows the user to control play, pause and skip functions and routes video from an iPod (5G models only) through the system and to a connected display. What’s more, the iPod charges while connected.
