Following on from various incarnations of the JBL "On Stage" iPod speaker system, JBL has launched another sequel - the On Stage 3 Portable.

The JBL On Stage 3 portable is compatible, using the supplied universal dock adaptors, with all iPod models.

It can also be hooked up to other devices, like other digital music and CD players, games consoles, notebooks and desktop PCs via the supplied 3.5mm mini-jack cable.

The On Stage 3 can be powered by six AA batteries, which JBL claims enables the compact, lightweight system to provide crisp, powerful sound wherever you are – at home, in the office or while traveling.

The docking station features four integrated Odyssey loudspeakers providing 6-watt-per-channel for apparently clear, flawless sound and deep bass.

It has a IR remote control for full system control (including iPod menu navigation), from a distance of up to 10 metres. Interchangeable trim rings are available for colour customisation of your JBL On Stage 3 to match up with nanos.

The system will be available in black or white and will be available in October 2007.
