JVC TH-L1 Review

 

JVC, a well known and long-lived purveyor of consumer audio/video components, has released an all-in-one surround sound home theater speaker/receiver system, dubbed the JVC TH-L1. At roughly $299 USD, the TH-l1 supports HDMI, component and composite...

Price is hard to beat; HDMI and iPod connections; attractive looking; easy to setup

Lacks a DVD drive; unimpressive sound at high volumes; ckeap speaker construction

The TH-L1 is easy to set up, looks decent and works consistently.

Tiny bookshelf-size home theater in a box; numerous connectivity options including two HDMI inputs that support up to 1080p; USB port for digital media; iPod audio and video playback; attractive price point

No built-in DVD player; small speakers and relatively low wattage limit power and sound quality; supports only three concurrent AV sources; no HDMI up-conversion for analog video sources; USB mode requires you to select the type of media before you...

While the sound isn't overpowering, the wealth of connectivity options and features bundled into the JVC TH-L1 home theater in a box makes it well worth the inexpensive price tag.

This budget box from JVC has an attractive price tag - but do its parts play well as a team?

Weedy bass badly lets down this budget 5.1 system

JVC TH-L1

 

The TH-L1 from JVC is a one-box surround system with a difference. Not only is it designed to deliver 5.1 sound from a DVD player, but it also accommodates an iPod, USB flash drives and even 1080p video sources.

Painless setup, Strong sound, Versatile connections

Some compatibility frustrations

Thrilling sound quality, 1080p switching and multimedia compatibility at a price that won't break the bank

Good reciever, but buyer beware!

 

I bought this system thinking what a great deal for a HTIB system with HDMI inputs for under $300. Well let's just say I was disappointed to find out that the HDMI inputs on this receiver only pass the video from your digital set top box (ex. DirectTV...

Small size, HDMI inputs to pass high quality video

HDMI inputs don't send audio to the speakers! No digital audio calbes provided. Speaker wires come attached to speakers

No HDMI Sound...

 

dkunkel6 hit it right on the nose with the lack of sound that cannot be used from the HDMI cables. It was very disappointing. On the bright side, the unit is small, compact, and actually sounds better than the cnet review. The only thing I would add is...

Small, Easy to use, Sounds really good

No HDMI sound available, Missing 3rd digital optical input
