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. However, at $300, it's more than some people are willing to spend for a small audio system for an office or bedroom. So JBL shrank the Radial down, made a few cost-cutting tweaks, and called the less-expensive result Radial Micro.
Excerpt: This unit is fairly compact and the sound comes from all sides. You can change volume on the unit but to change tracks, etc. you need to use the remote or the iPod. It can’t run off batteries, making it less portable than some of the others. Sound quality is very good: full, clear and warm. On maximum volume, it is loud.
