Far more than a docking station.

Break through the sound barrier with the JBL OnBeat™ loudspeaker docking station. Listen to all the music loaded on your iOS devices – iPad, iPod and iPhone – with the clear, high-quality audio that makes JBL® products world famous, at a price that no one can beat. Far more than just a dock for your iOS devices, the JBL OnBeat system opens up a 360-degree soundstage for all the media loaded on your iOS devices. How do we get such great sound from such a small system? DSP (digital signal processing) equalization augments the system’s two JBL Phoenix SE full-range loudspeaker transducers. In addition, the JBL OnBeat system makes videos more fun for the family to enjoy. An ingenious rotating dock lets you position iPhone and iPod devices in portrait or landscape mode for widescreen viewing while watching movies. You can even display videos on your TV for a whole crowd to enjoy. And while you’re enjoying the entertainment, the docked device is charging and will be ready to go when you are.

Hi, is there anyway of stopping this going into standby as I want to use it as a radio alarm?

Asked by: George36
The ONBEAT’s power-saving feature place the unit on standby when it does not detect an audio-signal cannot be switched off. The exact feature that you are looking for is in a different model, which is the ONBEAT AWAKE.

Love this unit ... Upgraded my phone just recently ... Is there a way to convert this from 30 pin to 8 pin? Thanks

Asked by: MaryK
I'm not sure what you mean by 8 pin. If you are talking about the Apple Lightning connector, Apple offers adapters to convert from 30 pin to Lightning. If you are talking about a different connector, unfortunately I don't have that answer and will have to suggest that you contact the manufacturer of your new phone, to find out if they offer a converter.

Can you replace the 30 pin connector on this unit? I've only used this docking station a few times, for IPOD & IPAD. And now, I'm unable to play my iPod. I have to jiggle and play with my iPod for it to play now.... Thanx Tim
