JVC is finally getting on the nice design bandwagon with the UX-N1. This is basically a clock radio/CD player with an auxiliary input for MP3 players which is less than three inches high. It comes with a pair of speakers and there's are no dials—just touch sensitive surfaces. There's also a remote.
Apparently the system turns on when it receives an external input and also has an audio out for external recording.
The styling is quite striking and it'll be interesting the see what else JVC comes out with in this vein.
