OK, we've officially lost count of the number of iPod speaker systems out there. And JVC has recently added a slew of new ones to the pot. Most drool-inducing is the NX-PS1 (US$250, available in September), a desktop system consisting of four cubes--a center unit, two speakers, and a subwoofer. The system also features an auxiliary input for hooking up other players, headphone jack, remote, iPod stand, timer/clock, and four EQ settings.
Other systems include the UX-EP25 ($200, available September), a CD micro system with iPod connection and separate dual speakers; the RA-P10 (US$130, due in October), a tube-shaped portable iPod speaker system complete with FM radio, blue backlit display, and remote; and the RC-EZ38 (US$100, available now), a CD/cassette (yes, cassette) boombox. You know, for resurrecting all those mix tapes you made in the 90s.
