Expert review by: Steve Guttenberg (



Enter JVC's TH-C30 ($330). This feature-filled system comes with a smooth running five-disc changer/A/V receiver, five petite satellites, and a near full-size subwoofer. Those small satellites have a bit of styling pizzazz--the fronts and surrounds are...

The JVC TH-C30 is a budget-priced system with a compact integrated A/V receiver/DVD changer and tiny but powerful two-way satellites. The omnidirectional satellites create wonderfully diffuse surround effects, and the potent powered subwoofer goes...

This system has a connectivity suite befitting its budget status, and its sound quality won't satisfy serious music lovers.

Though it doesn't sound great on music, JVC's seriously affordable and compact home theater in a box scores with ample features and solid performance.

"Aceptable entry level HTIB"


I was able to listen the TH-C30, TH-C40 and TH-C60 after I bought the TH-C40 from an online store. TH-C30 and TH-C40 have the same amplifier (built into the subwoofer) with 167 Watts per channel (?). TH-C40, C50 and C60 have HDMI output, which is...

"biggets bang for your buck"


I'll probably get razzed for this, but I actually bought the TH-C43 which is the 810W(rms) unit with tower sat speakers. The receivers and surround sats are identical to the TH-C30 though, so I thought I'd post the review here.

nice high end sound, stylish look, plays divx

weakish bass, no useful cables included

JVC TH-C30 Home Theater System


I recently purchased a flat screen lcd tv and after watching it I came to the conclusion I need surround sound. I did some looking and after viewing all of what had to offer I decided to get this one. Boy does it sound good. Lots of power and a...

JVC TH-C30 Home Theater System


The system sounds great and has a lot of power for a relatively inexpensive system. Each individual speaker has to be connected to the subwoofer which made it difficult to reconfigure (hide) the wires. My other Sony system has one wire that attaches to...
