The JVC NX-F3 is a home entertainment system with great sound quality


The JVC NX-F3 is a home theatre system that provides rich bass, clear treble and fantastic DVD upscaling to 1080p. We don't like the low build quality of the controller unit at this price point, but there's little else to fault this package on.

Good sound quality, very good DVD upscaler, good variety of connections

Build quality, slight treble distortion at high volumes

JVC NX-F3 review


Simple, well-sorted, 2.1 channel, home cinema system.

Cohesive, punchy sound ; good picture ; simple overall styling

Cluttered and unnecessarily complex remote

The NX-F3 is an amiable offering and a highly capable 2.1 system

JVC Sophisti NX-F3 review


JVC fancies a bit of the compact home cinema market

Gorgeous styling ; Adequate pseudo surround effect ; Clean DVD playback

Subwoofer can be overzealous

A good looking and capable system

The 2.1 system features a DVD/receiver unit accompanied by a pair of satellite speakers and a small, passive subwoofer. The speaker design is crucial as it attempts to recreate surround sound from only two channels using separate drivers for the main...

Compact design, impressive features and connectivity, ease of use, densely defined images

Surround effects struggle to convince, not exceptionally powerful

Nice aesthetics, deep warm bass, good upscaling and ease of use. I love this little system. I was fed up with Blu Ray and all my 5.1 surround stuff. Too many cables, too expensive. So I "downgraded" to this little fella and couldn't be happier....

Multi-region would be nice but hey ho.

Very good sound for the price and looks neat. The two Speakers are a nice small design and powerful.

Only slight bad point is the subwoofer is large but this can be hidden
