Another AirPlay-compatible device has hit store shelves.

Harman's JBL On-Air Wireless AirPlay Speaker Dock, which launched today, allows users to play music from their iTunes library or iOS-based devices over their wireless network. The device's screen displays album artwork and song information to let users know what's on at any given time. In addition, the speaker features a iPod/iPhone dock to let users charge their devices or play music when they can't stream content via AirPlay. The device also offers an FM radio tuner.

Apple's AirPlay service allows for video, music, and photos to be streamed over a wireless network to compatible devices. However, the JBL speaker joins a relatively small number of products that actually work with Apple's AirPlay service, including the Apple TV, Denon AV receivers, and the Klipsch Gallery Series, among others.

Like many of the other AirPlay-compatible products in the wild, Harman's latest release, which retails for $349.99, is a bit expensive. Even so, those who are interested in picking one up can do so at Best Buy or Apple stores around the U.S.
