JVC in Japan today announced [JP] the NC-SP1, an ultra-slim active speaker that’s just 34mm thick and can be connected to your computer via USB. Marketed as a device that’s particularly suitable for presentations, it supports Windows XP/Vista/7 and Mac OS X 10.4 machines and requires just one USB port.
The 12W×2ch (4Ω) speaker is sized at 300×34×186mm. Because it weighs just 1.2kg, JVC is marketing the NC-SP1 as being “portable”.
The device will go on sale in Japan at the end of March for $400. JVC hasn’t said yet if it ever will become available outside Japan as well.
