JVC to Release "Uniquely Designed" iPod/iPhone Dock
Ever notice how a piece of artwork hinging on the border of unattractive actually becomes sort of attractive just by virtue of flirting with ugly? If what applies to art similarly applies to the realm of iPod and iPhone accessories, the new XS-SR3 surround-sound speaker dock from JVC is a veritable masterpiece.
The new JVC XS-SR3 surround dock is a sleek, glossy black speaker tube with a curved design that allows the iPod to nestle between the speakers.
A new JVC iPod speaker system features a unique wraparound design, Dolby Virtual Surround, and a dock that like most docks holds an iPod vertically for music listening, but also can cradle it horizontally - ideal for widescreen viewing of video.
Once you get past the curved look, which may actually be a selling point for most as opposed to a distraction for others, the dock-makers are obviously less concerned with the appearance than they are the delivery of supreme surround-sound functionality. And at the end of the day, I guess that's all that matters.
Expected to retail for about $150, the JVC XS-SR3 dock will be released later this month.

I'd rather spend my money on the Logitech Pure-Fi any day...the sound quality would definitely be better than this crap!

I like the way it looks. The price tag is good too for what it offers up in functionality.

When I got my 3GS a few months ago, I bought a Pure-Fi Dream for $99 on Amazon. I fully expected it to sound as good or better than my Z560s. On sound, I've not been disappointed in the slightest. My only beef with it is that they ran the antenna wire down the power wire instead of giving it a dedicated antenna, so reception is not the greatest, but I didn't buy the thing to listen to the radio so not a huge problem for me.
I doubt the audio quality of this JVC will touch the Pure-Fi Dream's, but I'm sure it will be pretty decent.

i dont find that these audio systems are worth the cash. especially when you can buy a 3.5 mini stereo connection to rca to any regular or major brand stereo system, and....BAM! instantly you save over $100 .killall Terminal
