If your music is important enough to carry with you everywhere, you should carry the JBL® MS-2 pocket digital processor. The MS-2 uses DSP (digital signal processing) equalization to optimize system performance for the acoustic characteristics of your speakers, electronics and vehicle interior, and DSP time correction to ensure that all the sounds reach your ears simultaneously, creating a coherent, richly detailed soundscape. Small enough to fit in a shirt pocket and simple enough for even a novice to set up in seconds, the MS-2 will transform the listening experience in all your vehicles and even at home (with a third-party 6V DC power supply). So wherever your portable player goes, your JBL MS-2 should go, too.
While portable media devices are everywhere, none of them optimize their sound output for the places where you play them. The players’ makers intend you to play them with tiny ear buds or, at best, some kind of headphones. The JBL Procoustics MS-2 processor provides the missing link between media players and great sound in a car or anywhere else a portable device might connect to a speaker system.
The MS-2 processor is barely the size of the smallest smartphone or media player. It weighs just 0.2 pounds (96 grams). It fits easily into a pocket, purse or backpack, and connecting it in the car is a breeze. The included cigarette-lighter power cord and audio cables are all that you’ll need to get connected and running in the car. If you’ve connected a media player to audio and charging, you already know how to connect the processor. It’s that easy.
The MS-2 is compatible with all kinds of devices. You can set it up out of the box to plug it into a portable media player’s headphone jack with the included connection cables. You can also configure it to work with any music source that has RCA line-level outputs. With this degree of flexibility, you can connect the unit to nearly any system!
The MS-2’s output, which connects into an audio system, is very flexible. It’s configured out of the box with a 1/8-inch (3.5-millimeter) headphone-style mini-jack that plugs into the AUX (auxiliary) input on the front panel of many car stereos. Should you wish to connect it to auxiliary inputs on the rear of your car stereo, just buy an RCA 3.5-millimeter jack adapter cable or use an FM transmitter with its own AUX input.
The MS-2’s power cord has an easy-to-connect plug for your car’s cigarette-lighter socket. The power cord also has a USB-connector pigtail that allows a USB charging cable to connect to a portable media device and charge it. That means your music will last all day in the car.
With a third-party 6-volt DC power adapter, you can use the MS-2 practically anywhere you find a personal audio system. Perfect for the modest home system in an apartment, bedroom or home office, the processor is also great for a semi-closed area such as an office cubicle or even an RV.
Flash memory in the MS-2 holds all of your settings in a non-volatile state whenever the power is disconnected. That means you’ll easily resume that great sound experience every time you reconnect the processor in your car.
