The JBL On Beat speaker dock is one of the more popular iPad speaker docks in the market at the moment, and now JBL has announced a new version of the On Beat that will feature Apple AirPlay streaming as well in the JBL On Beat Air.
Based on the images of the unit, the JBL OnBeat Air looks pretty much identical to the standard On Beat. You can still dock your iPad / iPhone / iPod with it, the design is the same, and we are yet to find out if the interior is the same as well, with the exception of the inclusion of Apple AirPlay technology that is. If the other specifications are more or less the same as with the JBL On Beat, we are looking at dual 7.5W amplification, component video output, and USB connection.
According to the listing on Amazon UK the JBL On Beat Air features dual JBL Phoenix transducers with computer-optimized DSP equalization 70Hz – 20kHz frequency response for legendary JBL sound.
I will be back with more information about the JBL On Beat Air as soon as information is released.
