Jensen Adds BT Lightning Speakers

LAS VEGAS — Spectra Merchandising is expanding its selection of Jensen-brand dock-less Bluetooth speakers and its selection of speakers and clock radios equipped with Apple’s Lightning connector.

The company is also expanding its selection of turntable-equipped music systems.

Three new Lightning-equipped tabletop devices include the $89-suggested JiLS- 300i Wave, a compact dual alarm clock radio with iPod/iPhone dock, 1-amp USB charging port, backlit LCD display with dimmer control, FM stereo with digital tuning and three waking options.

The $99 JiLS-350i is a docking speaker with retractable Lightning dock supporting iPods, iPhones and iPads. It comes with a remote. The $119 JiLS-525i is a dual alarmclock radio with adjustable Lightning dock that rotates for horizontal and vertical viewing, 1-amp USB charging port, multifunction blue LED display, FM stereo with digital tuning, four EQ presets, remote and the ability to wake to radio, alarm or docked Apple device.

The company maintains a selection of docking speakers with Apple’s 30-pin connector.

In turntable-equipped music systems, the company is launching three Jensen models, all with built-in speakers. One is the $129 JTA-460 three-speed belt-drive turntable, AM/FM, built-in stereo speakers, and MP3 encoding direct from the turntable to an SD card slot or USB port.

The $149 JTA-475 music system with three-speed turntable adds CD/cassette and 3.5mm aux in but lacks MP3 encoding. And the $349 JTA-980 adds CD recorder to record music from the turntable, cassette, CD player or aux in. All three models come with RCA line-out jacks.

Five new Bluetooth speakers include the $129 JSBW-650 2.1-channel wall-mountable soundbar with FM, remote and built-in 20-watt subwoofer. The $69 JBD-100 Bluetooth clock radio is Jensen’s first dock-less clock radio, which also features 1-amp USB charging port, FM, hands-free speakerphone and 1-inch LCD display.

The $119 JBD-400 portable Bluetooth speaker features FM, rechargeable battery and a folding stand/carrying handle.
