JVC Updates Kaboom Boombox with iPhone Support

Posted by at 11:33 am on June 16, 2011

JVC has re-introduced its barrel-shaped Kaboom boombox, originally launched in 1998, with a new version adding features for both iPhone and iPod Touch use as well as a guitar/mic input with mixing capabilities, turning the unit into a play-along or amp for intimate performances. The iPod/iPhone dock is protected by a sealing door, and an included USB Host feature allows playback of MP3 and WMA files from other USB-connectable devices.

The unit offers 40 watts of power, and includes both a woofer at each end as well as bass enhancement circuitry. It still offers a CD player (which can also handle MP3 and WMA data discs as well as conventional and home-burned Audio CDs) along with an FM tuner. It also has an auxiliary input to make it easy to connect other devices to enable them to use the Kaboom as an amp.

The boombox offers a four-amp configuration, 13cm woofers and 8cm full-range speakers (each with level control), a remote control and shoulder strap, and works with either AC or batteries for outdoor use.

The Kaboom, also known as the JVC RV-NB70, retails for $300 and is available now from the company or JVC retailers.
