Great Sound


i bought mine to have a 2.0 system in my apartment, i didn't want a big sub to pound through the floor and make the neighbors mad, this works great. (it has a powered sub out if you want to add one). had it for over a year, i use it almost every day,...

Small size, great sound, looks nice/high quality ; sound is really fantastic for a unit this small, it is easily the best quality for anything similar i've seen in the sub 2 hundred dollar range

doesn't get super loud, so it may not fill the largest rooms ; has only 1 aux imput, but i used piggyback audio cables to hook up both my TV and phono player

Not a good DVD player


I haven't used this for much other than a DVD player. I have only used it to listen to CD's or radio a few times so can't comment on those features.

The unit is small and relatively inexpensive. If you want an all in one this might be good for you

After only a few weeks the DVD player started having problems. It will pause for several minutes when going from the DVD menu to playing the DVD content. It only happens on occasion but when it does it is extremely annoying since the unit will not...

JVC mini boombox


Sounds pretty good for a little thing.

Doesn't automatically switch back to clock.

A good solution for the price -- adding a subwoofer seals the deal


Clumsy remote * Disc must be stopped before "random" play mode can be selected * mp3 files burned to DVDs will not be recognized * not compatible with DivX * mp3 id3 tag data is displayed only once on the main unit (in a scrolling format when a new...

Recommendations are right on target!


What a great deal this was...served my needs as a new single just perfectly, and useful to me or to other family members down the line.

Compact, crystal-clear sound, small footprint, impressive powerhouse, attractive, versatile product

None yet...except that it's physically attractive enough to encourage my kids' interest in it. But then, what belonging to Mom isn't? ;-)

small package/price


I was also able to program the Comcast remote to control this with ease because those brilliant minds at JVC stuck with 1 IR code.

My girlfriend wanted a small HTIB type system that didn't take over the room. That is exactly what this is. It seems very nicely made/designed and has above average sound quality. Tempted to give a 4 rating overall, but the amazing $price$ point took...

remote is larger than expected but VERY full featured

Good Little System

No remote is perfect.

Best Compact System for the Buck


The build quality on this unit is excellent - solid with nice variety of inputs and outputs.

The output power is somewhat low compared to my old Sony system (vocal quality is crisp but bass quality is non-existent).

Will do the trick !!!


I purchased this unit as a Christmas gift for my mother.

Can't say, as I did not posses for long: Please note, I tested unit with music only, and can not comment on sound/picture application in anyway.
