If you’re thinking that these are just more iPad/iPhone/iPod speaker docks, you would be wrong, because this is actually a CD player as well, that can double as an iPad/iPhone/iPod speaker dock. It was recently unveiled by JVC Victor and it is said to go on sale in Japan towards the end of July or early August, although no price has been mentioned.
Although the CD player is currently only available for the UX-VJ5 model, the UX-VJ3 features similar specs, minus the CD player of course, and both are said to be able to accommodate an iPad and an iPhone/iPod. Both devices are also said to feature Video Out, PC In, Audio In, an FM/AM Radio tuner, a 2x15W out put, as well as a USB port on the UX-VJ5, that is supposed to let you rip your CDs into MP3 format and then transferred to an external USB device, such as a flash drive or external hard disk.
We’re not sure why anyone would need to dock an iPad and an iPhone/iPod at the same time. We’re also guessing that when docked it would allow the device to charge, so perhaps it’s just a convenient solution to charge two devices simultaneously. Other than that, we’ll admit that they do look pretty sleek.
