Listeners love the iPod for a variety of reasons, including its high-quality sound, clever design, and user-friendly functions. Harman Multimedia pays tribute to this efficiency with its JBL On Stage docking speaker system, which broadcasts your favorite iPod music while offering many of the same creative benefits as the iPod itself. The device employs four Odyssey Neodymium drivers to deliver a full spectrum of audio--from profound bass notes to crisp high frequencies--along with computer-optimized equalization that seamlessly blends the tones for clarity. The device makes a natural companion to most versions of the iPod. The JBL On Stage is compatible with all versions of the iPod, except the iPod Photo. It also connects to other portable audio devices, such as MP3 players, CD players, and laptops, via its stereo mini-jack connection., with a sleek, inventive housing that cradles the iPod body while adding a modern touch to your décor. The device is also compact--measuring 7 inches in diameter and 2 inches tall--meaning you can take it virtually anywhere. Merely stuff it in a backpack, suitcase, or car compartment, and enjoy its full-bodied audio while on the road.
The JBL On Stage come with adapters for all versions of the iPod, including the iPod mini.
As with any device that accompanies an Apple product, the On Stage is also remarkably easy to use, with a touch volume control and a full iPod charger. A simple touch of either pad increases or decreases the volume, while touching both pads simultaneously mutes or unmutes the speakers. The On Stage also remembers your last volume setting even after the system shuts down. Charging your iPod is effortless as well--merely plug the iPod wall charger into the On Stage and rest the iPod in the dock. The On Stage takes care of the rest. Listeners can also charge their iPods by plugging the On Stage directly to a computer with the OnePoint connectors. The system charges the iPod whether it's powered on or not.
The JBL On Stage is compatible with all versions of the iPod, including the iPod mini. It also connects to other portable audio devices, such as MP3 players, CD players, and laptops, via its stereo mini-jack connection.

An important note from JBL:
You may have heard that a very few customers (currently fewer than 1%) have experienced a problem with JBL On Stage.
The problem will present itself in one of two ways: Either the unit no longer works or the volume can't be controlled. This condition may occur ONLY if all of the following conditions are present:
- You dock your iPod to JBL On Stage while both products are on and
- A significant charge of static electricity transfers from you to the JBL On Stage volume control and
- A specific chip was used in your JBL On Stage.
We want to emphasize that there is no safety issue.
JBL is offering to replace your JBL On Stage at no cost to you except for the shipping cost to their warehouse (JBL will pay return shipping), should you have a JBL On Stage with a defective chip. First, find out whether your unit has the defective chip by going to http://www.jbl.com/home/product_support/jblonstage.aspx.
