Expert review by : David Smith (

JVC TH-R3 Home cinema system


JVC's latest home cinema offering is the first, rather strangely, to include an RGB Scart. This attractive system has that vital input, which means that digibox users will be able to record their favourite programmes in all their RGB glory.

Good recording and playback

Fairly average sound; some operational foibles

You can be confident in the quality of recording and DVD playback with this system, but the audio side of things is a disappointment and drags the overall score down.

Expert review by : Alex Rothwell (



The TH-R3 is one of JVC's biggest guns, coming armed with a clever DVD recording unit that boasts more connections than Max Clifford's address book.

Great audio and video playback, DVD recording option, loads of connections

Lightweight floorstanders, overly busy remote
