JVC RA-P10 iPod stereo
JVC is dipping its toes into the realm of iPod docks with the RA-P10, a portable stereo system. It has a remote control, 4W per channel, and an FM tuner with 20 presets, but what may really attract some is the ability to run on six AA batteries. Other stereo docks can require D-size, or a proprietary battery that has to be charged. An AC adapter is included if you have access to a socket, which is probably wise to use if you want to charge your iPod through the dock. Some miscellaneous features of the P10 include an LCD display, a snooze alarm clock, and room temperature display. The system is out now for $130.
