I like a good stereo system in my office, but have never wanted to get bogged down with "regular size" component systems (those are for chillin' out at home).
Looking at micro component systems that don't break the bank, JVC has always been a very good choice. And actually, very good value for the money.
(In audio, like so much of life, you get what you pay for ...)
JVC's new UX-G50 is a high-power 5-CD changer system with USB audio input and features Quick Portable Link with front audio input and two-way speakers.
Here's the skinny:
- Power Output: 100 watts per channel
- Sources: CD, CD-R/RW, MP3 (CD-R/RW), Tuner
- MP3 playback with ID3 Tag (CD-R/RW)
- USB audio input for receiving signals from PCs
- Quick Portable Link — the unit detects analog signals from a connected player, then automatically turns on the power and switches the source to AUX
- Active Hyper-Bass PRO for dynamic bass response and clear vocals
- Sound Turbo boosts sound excitement at the touch of a button
- 2-Way Bass-Reflex: 4-3/4" (12cm) Woofer, 1-5/8" (4cm) Tweeter
