The JBL OnBeat Venue LT features a hidden Lightning dock connector behind the JBL logo at the speaker's base. Ideal for the iPad Mini and revised iPad with Retina display, HARMAN's exclusive TrueStream Bluetooth wireless streaming technology allows the JBL OnBeat Venue LT to connect with up to eight devices, providing additional device flexibility. The JBL OnBeat Venue LT includes the free, downloadable MusicFlow™ app, which allows users to create customized playlists, edit mixes, adjust volume and EQ settings, and browse album artwork.
Some of the first Lightning connector speaker docks. Most consumers might shy away from docks if they've invested in the old 30-pin connector. Bluetooth might be a more versatile and future proof solution, but if you're looking charge and play from your iPhone, iPod, or iPad, it's still a convenient solution.
Both the Micro and Venue LT are available now and sell for $99 and $199.
