Conclusion: A wonderful-sounding iPod speaker system that's a strong competitor with the Bose SoundDock. It's capable of powering small parties, and the RF remote means you won't have to push anyone out of the way to change songs.
Pros: Superb sound quality. Wide sweet spot. Attractive design. Comes with an RF remote.
Cons: No composite video output. No power button on the remote. Power button is inconveniently located on back of unit. No volume indicator.
Excerpt: (1 items) JBL's original Radial is one of our favorite iPod speaker systems, thanks to impressive audio quality -- among the best of any desktop system for the iPod -- and an attractive design.

So JBL shrank the Radial down, made a few cost-cutting tweaks, and called the less-expensive result Radial Micro.
Excerpt: Apple’s ultra-popular iPod has been around for almost 5 years. That’s plenty of time for companies to come out with accessories like iPod docks in new and interesting designs.

Excerpt: Le design novateur du système d’enceintes pour iPod JBL Radial est calqué sur celui de son aîné et radio réveil On Time . Il accepte tous les modèles de ce baladeur se connectant à une station d'accueil. L’iPod repose en évidence au centre sous l'auréole du JBL Radial, formant un cercle futuriste. Le berceau pour l'iPod de 26,7 x 30,5 cm (hauteur x largeur) attire indéniablement l'attention sur lui, ainsi que sur le baladeur.
