not good at all


the only reason i purchased this was because of the rebate which would have brought the unit to $10. based on the reviews i knew this was not going to be a high quality speaker. however i never received the rebate, which means i tanked $50 on this...

better than iPhone speakers, i guess

horrible sound, especially when turned up. it completely distorts and there is no bass at all ; No rebate!!!! what a jip

Where's my rebate


Avoid anything associated with National Rebate Center. They ignore emails and there is no known or posted phone number for assistance!!!!!

At least it works with ipod 3rd generation and iphone

Remote is so so. Number one complaint is that the rebate was not honored. There was no response when I contacted them either. I would not have purchased without rebate. I have had good luck in the past but this was a real disappointment. Newegg should...

Doesn't work with Touch G4


I have a radio with an iPod dock that I bought maybe 5 years ago and at least with it the sound comes through from the Touch 4G, even though it doesn't charge. But with the XS-SR3J, no charging, no control, no sound, nothing. It is possible to hook up...

Light weight

It is 100% incompatible with the latest iPod Touch (4th gen). Attach it to the XS-SR3J and you get ... nothing

Pretty good for its price.


1. It's bulky for its sound volume, but, it is a personal speaker, so I won't complain. 2. Since I mainly use it as background radio in bedroom so it is loud enough for me. 3. I can put ipad on it, but the charging current is ONLY 0.5A, so ipad won't...

Decent sound, iphone 4 compatible, has a remote, has AUX/optical in

it is not loud as it is a personal speaker, but given its original price, I think this is con. But don't make it wrong, it is loud enough for a small if you turn up volume ; It is bulky, given its functions and its volume ; It won't turn on/off...

compact versatile styleish


Love the landscape viewing, it's so rare in a dock, Sound is good, Surround is definitely a plus. Would never have paid $99.99 much less $149.99 for it but a steal @ refurbished shell shocker prices

compact 60s mod design, pivoting mount for landscape viewing, remote control, Apple iPod dock & analog and digital inputs, 3 brackets for versatile mounting, surround sound on tiny unit

Had to really press iPod into unit to get right channel to come on - was left channel only & at first thought I would have to RMA it, but no. Sound is not deafening but @ 5 Watts no one could really expect it to be other the guy who gave it one star....

Had one of these for a year now.Great sound for the money.Looks great as well.The only thing that lets it down is it does not have a head phone socket

Product Specifications

The JVC XS-SR3 surround dock is a sleek, glossy speaker tube with a curved design that allows the iPod to nestle between the speakers. The iPod holder rotates for viewing video in widescreen mode and comes with four clips to hold selected iPod models. The speaker's powerful neodymium magnets ensure clean, crisp sound, while Dolby Virtual Surround creates the illusion of a wider sound field when viewing video content. Power output is five watts and the system features two audio inputs, one analog and one digital optical. In addition to its function as an iPod speaker dock, the XS-SR3 can also be used as computer speaker system.
