Spectra Merchandising, under the Jensen brand, is adding three certified Made For iPod and iPhone docking speaker systems.

It is offering its first iPad-docking speaker system, first three-piece music system with iPod/ iPhone dock, and first iPod/iPhone docking system with wireless speakers.

The $149-suggested JiMS-260i is the threepiece system, which features CD player, FM tuner with 10 presets and iPod/iPhone dock. The system, which can be wall-mounted or placed on a table, lets users wake up to radio, CD or iPod/ iPhone music.

The system with wireless speakers is the $149-suggested JiSS-600i, due in the middle of December. Its dock features removable rechargeable wireless speakers that stream iPod/iPhonestored music from up to 125 feet from the charging station/base. A removable wireless USB transmitter in the back of the base can be removed and inserted into a computer’s USB to stream music from a PC.

The weather-resistant speakers have power/status indicators, independent volume controls and rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. Speaker charging is accomplished inductive wireless charging pads located on the base unit.

For the iPad, Spectra has begun shipping its previously announced $99.99 JiPS-250i. It takes the form of a speaker tube with side-firing speakers and adjustable holder that rotates the iPad into portrait and landscape modes. It also angles the iPad up to 55 degrees to enable easy use of the iPad’s virtual keyboard, and it delivers iPad/iPod/iPhone-stored video to a connected TV via the speaker’s composite-video output.

A free app for the iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad deliver additional speaker-system features, including a deluxe alarm clock with various wake/sleep sounds, Internet radio, voice message calendar, custom EQ settings, music player, nature sounds, photo album and MyMusic subscription service. MyMusic lets users access their personal music collections via the Internet.
