JVC NX-PN7: Attack of the two-headed iPod speaker

JVC's latest iPod clock radio can dock not one but two iPods--simultaneously.

When it comes to iPod speakers, we thought we'd seen it all--models with vacuum tubes, 2.1 systems, ones that are totally tubular, and others that are as big as a microwave oven. But JVC's NX-PN7 is the first one we've seen with docks for two iPods. Despite doubling down on the music players, the unit is just 13 inches wide. In addition to being able to toggle between "iPod A" and "iPod B," the NX-PN7 features a clock, an auxiliary line-in, and a horizontal light beneath each iPod dock that can be set to any one of nine colors. It has a sleep timer, but apparently no alarm. If you're looking for a more traditional (single iPod) clock/radio, you'll want to opt for the JVC RA-P31--it sports dual alarms and is transportable (powered by six AA batteries when not plugged in). Look for the NX-PN7 ($150) and RA-P31 ($100) in April 2008.
