JVC has three new micro systems for 2009, including with the UX-LP5, which features a retractable front flip dock for iPods.

While this model doesn't offer the touch-sensitive controls and motion sensor of the step-up UX-GN6, it does have many of the same features, including a video output so you can play back iPod-stored video on a connected television, a front audio input for connecting other audio products, CD playback, and an AM/FM tuner.

It's worth noting that while the UX-GN6 is listed as having a total power output of 120 watts, the UX-LP5 is a 70-watt system. Both models come with a pair of two-way speakers.

The UX-LP5 will be available in March and carry a list price of $149.95. The step-up UX-GN6 will list for $199.95 while the more basic (read: no iPod dock) UX-G200 will go for $99.95. All the JVC micro audio systems will be in stores in March.
