JVC now shipping iPod-docking TVs, dual dock radio


JVC has announced that it is now shipping its P-Series LCD TVs with built-in iPod docks, as well as its NX-PN7 “dual dock” sound system. Originally announced in January, the NX-PN7 features side-by-side iPod docks, which offer simultaneous charging capability, and playback from either through the built-in speakers. Other features include an AM/FM tuner, a clock and timer, auxiliary input, an included remote with dedicated iPod control keys, Works with iPhone-certified iPhone compatibility, and an illuminated strip underneath each dock that can display one of nine colors. The JVC NX-PN7 is available now and sells for $150.

JVC’s P-Series LCD TVs feature the company’s new TeleDock, a flip-down iPod Dock at the base of the set which provides a direct connection for audio and video playback through the TV. When an iPod is docked, a menu appears on the TV screen for selecting music, music shuffle or video playback. Playback can be controlled from the TV’s remote, which includes a circular keypad with a control scheme that mimics the iPod’s control wheel, and video playback is handled by two different modes: low-resolution files can be displayed in a small screen mode, while larger, higher-res videos can be shown in nine different aspect ratios, including full screen. A separate option allows for iPod music listening while a TV signal is displayed, and the iPod will charge while docked regardless of whether or not the set is on. Aside from the sets’ iPod abilities, features include HDMI, component, and S-Video inputs, and an analog audio output. The new JVC P-Series includes the 768p-capable, 32-inch LT-32P679 ($1000), the 1080p 42-inch LT-42P789 ($1600), and the 1080p-capable, 47-inch LT-47P789 ($2200), all of which are available now. The last model in the series, the 1080p 52-inch LT-52P789 ($3200), will be available in August.

I know most people would say that having TWO iPod docks on a device like this is a bit excessive, but it might work great for me in my office.  I use my iPod 5G to listen to music on an iHome clock radio but I have my iPhone as well.  I sometimes need to recharge my iPhone while at work and then I have to take the iPod off and put the iPhone on.  Although I can still listen to music I either have to deal with the interference that intermittently occurs or put my iPhone in airplane mode.  If this truly works well with the iPhone then it would be a good solution to both of my problems (dual charging and iPhone static interference).  So far iLounge reviews of other Works with iPhone clock radios have not been to great so I look forward to hearing how this one stacks up.  Also saw the new iPhone compatible iHome radio yesterday and it looked kind of chintzy compared to the older versions.
