3-0 out of 5 stars Not a poor system but....
My friend have bought this jvc system. The sound is average and the two 8 inch subwoofer really pump bass in a small room but in family room, the bass is ugly. 110 watts per channel for subwoofer. I don't believe it. My old scak29 of Panasonic with 70 watts per channel for subwoofer give a better bass.

This system has 330??? watts of power. The sound is good, not to bad. 3 cd and many option for choosing the sound quality. Bright display and the desing is ugly for more person and beautifull for another. You like it or you not like. Personally, i don't like it with the big button (fisher price desing). Why jvc has not keep the rolling pannel?

The speakers are big and the giga tube on the top reproducing a quiet bass for a small room.

Not to bad system, sound and built quality is average. For the same price and the better sound sc-ak44 of panasonic or mhc-gx40 of sony are better. 300 watts for ak-44 and 240 watts for gx-40(subwoofer include)

1-0 out of 5 stars This stereo is worthless
I spent $... on this same stereo at a local [store]. I've had it four months and the speakers are blown. I'm NEVER home. I used it maybe 3X's a week. Never excessively loud. Since it's part of the Giga Tube series you cannot just replace them with regular speakers. What's even better is when JVC customer service won't return calls or email. If your looking for a ...paper weight, go for it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great!
This system is great. i love it! it has lots of bass that will shake your windows. (if you think they have thump now.....wait till the speakers break in!)Your ears and head will be ringing after you hear the bass. the music is clear and crisp. highs and mids are performed perfectly. The GigaTube and the two 8 inch Subwoofers pump out plenty of low,deep,thundering bass!

ok this is tyler again and I just have to say this guy from honolulu is to picky and aparently doesnt no anything about stereo systems , is not always the loudness or bass that counts its the design and features , but this honolulu guy just wants bass , my house is small and when i have friends over they say ive got the best radio system in town , JVC MXGT- 700 rules!

Okay , this system may not seem all that much or look like a good one but let me tell you I own this 1 and it will do some cranking , not to mention you can use it as surround sound for a dvd player or even a plastation 2 , personaly , i love it! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Underestimated.
This is my first DVD player. Never pay much attention to JVC products. I was in the market for a multi-region PAL/NTSC player with a built in converter and finally narrowed down to the one and only JVC, which offered a "built in PAL/NTSC converter" compared to others (paid extra for the upgrade) and now I can play my PAL discs from every country. I like the simple but very classy design in black which matched my system. The unit does offer alot more than I expected including the usual CD format and rarities such as: Super VCD & DVD Audio capability. I use the "Component" (RGB) hook up and in non-progressive or interlaced mode through a Panasonic 27" flat, and the picture and sound quality is superb and stunning!

Weaknesses:
Slight pause during disc layer change (small issue)
DVD Audio in analog? (I could be wrong)
No WMA
JPEG slow (small issue and don't use anyway)
Remote is confusing (too busy)

1-0 out of 5 stars I do not recommend purchasing this item.
I purchased this item from Amazon/J.R. Music last November 2002 when it cost $100 more than now.With minimal and careful use, the unit stopped working this September.Warranty was for parts and labor to six months and parts up to a year.Trusting the JVC name and my great relationship with Amazon, I had no hesitations in purchasing this item at full price.However, less than a year and it reads "no disc" when inserting the disc.After a tedious investigation on how to have the unit replaced or repaired I found out that I would have to mail it to the nearest JVC authorized service dealer ($25 minimum postage) who will charge $70.00 just to look at the unit, with labor on top of that to repair it, then pay return shipping.So it would cost probably more than I paid for it to repair it.The service rep told me that the unit was most likely defective.... oh well....take your chances on this one.It is now collecting dust in my entertainment center. Happy Holidays to one and all.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great performance and lots of features
I originally wanted a Panasonic RP-82 but they have been discontinued, so I was searching for the next best DVD player.This JVC has outstanding video performance thru my progressive scan output to my HDTV. Some handy features while watching DVD's include hitting "play" to skip back 10-seconds so you can hear that line you missed, and "Strobe", which displays 9 small pictures on the screen and goes through them in slow motion. I haven't found a good use for that feature yet, actually. Zoom, picture adjustment, and simulated 3D surround sound are other features.

I haven't tried any DVD-Audio yet, or VCDs, but I have used the MP3 function. The folders on the CD are displayed on the left half of the screen and the songs on the right side. Sound quality is good, although it lacks a random play option.

Overall, great value for the price! Also comes in silver (SA-602SL)

5-0 out of 5 stars Well surprised!
I am very happy with this progressive-scan DVD player. The menu options are amazing and user friendly. This machine is super quiet and easy to operate. I have had nothing but success with all of the connections. A wonder video composite output along with optical fiber audio out.

5-0 out of 5 stars JVC XV-SA600 BK
Bought this as a replacement to an ailling (full of bugs) xv-511bk as it started to show signs of failure.So far the 600 has played everything and anything I've thrown at it.JVC has added some nice features / upgrades to the software.A quick 5 second rewind and the resume feature are great.DVDA discs sound great, but you will need to make an analog connection with RCAs to enjoy the added clarity. ...

Amazon.com Product Description

JVC's ultra-slim XVN44SL DVD player is as much about audio playback as video, having been optimized for the high audio sampling frequency of 192 kHz, providing extra-wide dynamic range to realize the benefits of high-spec sources. Even CD playback benefits from higher-bit digital decoding. You want quality and convenience? Try format compatibility with DVD-Video, VCD, DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD+RW, CD, JPEG image CD-R, and MP3 CD. But it's definitely no slouch in the video department, offering JVC's digital direct progressive-scanning. Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, providing higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts.

The model's 10-bit, 54 MHz video sampling frequency ensures detailed images and clear, pure colors for DVD movies. And, with seven parameters to adjust, the unit's Video Fine Processor (VFP) provides exceptional versatility in fine-tuning images to personal preferences. The player gives a choice of either optical or coaxial digital-audio output for routing Dolby Digital or DTS 5.1-channel surround signals to a compatible audio/video receiver.

A high-resolution onscreen graphical user interface (GUI) allows Windows-like interactive operation with tool bars superimposed onto the TV screen for simple, point-and-click operation. Other conveniences include AV CompuLink (which optimizes performance when using the player in conjunction with other JVC equipment), Quick Start, 1.5x playback with sound, 13-step zoom, and screen fill (which zooms in on a DVD image to eliminate letterbox "bars" on the TV screen). ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Plays EVERYTHING!
This little dvd player is great for two big reasons:

1. CHEAP
2. plays every single disc i've put in it - including stuff that regular players won't play (like vcds or dvds from asia)

the quality of picture is great, and i haven't had any problems with it so far.

4-0 out of 5 stars A lot of features in a slim package
Hello All,

I just purchased this item as a replacement for a Cyberhome 1500 and a Daewoo DVP480 both of which went belly-up after just ONE DAY! I read the reviews posted here as well as checked elsewhere on the internet, which helped me narrow my choices down to this unit or one manufactured by Philips. When all was said and done, I purchased the JVC because of the features for the price.

I've had a chance to play with the unit now and everything works great! The picture is so crisp and clear it's as though you are actually in whatever it is you're watching. The sound is also fantastic when pumped though my Sony sound system. One more thing, perhaps it's not a big deal to most but this unit has one of the most comfortable remotes out of any DVD players I've seen and the player has a 1 YEAR warranty which MOST players these days DO NOT HAVE!! All this combines for a really nice DVD player at a reasonable cost.

Ciao!

4-0 out of 5 stars First DVD Player

4-0 out of 5 stars Good quality, with some operational downsides
I got this system to use 5.1 digital audio through its optical input. For the price, it is definately a good deal for a home theater system, but if your just getting it for the speaker set up, go with the Logitech z680s. The sub is not powered (it just takes left and right like all the other speakers), the remote control was sluggish, and the onscreen menu was extremely limited. The dvd picture and the sound was high quality, and the speakers were small and sturdy.
good home theater system overall ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The JVC XL-PV390 is a portable CD player which plays audio CDs, plus CD-R discs. The key feature to the PV390 is the included car kit. This kit comes with a cassette adaptor and a cigarette lighter DC adaptor, the two necessary accessories to make any personal CD player vehicle-ready. JVC has incorporated the ASP-EX (extreme) anti-shock system for the PV390. This system is an advanced version of what is found on most personal CD players, and provides forty-five seconds of memory. This type of protection is a huge plus when using the player either in the car or at the running/walking track. In fact, this sort of anti-shock system is good for any user who may encounter surprise jolts and vibrations while commuting, sitting in a coffee shop or studying in bed. The PV390 runs via the DC adaptor, an optional AC adaptor, or batteries. You can expect twenty hours of playback using normal alkaline batteries. To help save precious battery life, the player contains an auto power-off feature. With four play modes (normal, repeat, shuffle and twenty-track program) there are many options to enjoy the CD listening experience. Other notable features include: hold, resume, hyper-bass sound and a 1-bit D/A converter. The color is a sleek and modern silver/blue finish; this housing is also heat-resistant.

Amazon.com Product Description

The sleek, perfectly flat exterior of JVC's 42-inch PD-42WV74 plasma TV belies its rich and varied feature set. An incredible 3,000:1 contrast ratio and features like DIST (Digital Image Scaling Technology) 480p ensure that the set's picture quality is nothing short of smooth, detailed, and strikingly vivid.

With its 853 x 480 native pixel resolution, the PD-42WV74 is an EDTV monitor, which means it takes you a step closer to high-definition TV than standard TVs. It's compatible with full HDTV signals, however: when used with a progressive-scan DVD player, high-resolution satellite receiver, or DTV set-top box, it will deliver seamless, razor-sharp images from your favorite movies and concert videos. An HDCP (High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) enabled DVI input for a direct-digital connection with your HD source component.

With a plasma screen you get vivid colors like you've never seen before, extremely wide viewing angles (wider, even, than those of most LCD screens), and easy placement due to a plasma monitor's slim profile--the PD-42WV74 is a mere 4.25 inches deep, perfect for desk or wall mounting. (It comes with a matching pedestal stand for desk or table positioning.) Brightness tends to be extremely uniform across plasma screens, which are also impervious to the picture distortion and negative color balances that afflict CRT monitors when placed near lighting or sound systems.

The set's 16:9 aspect ratio is specially configured to match the dimensions of HDTV broadcasts and your favorite movies. Choose from panorama, cinema, full, and regular aspect modes, depending on your viewing. You also get JVC-exclusive digital four-point color-management circuitry and high-end Digital Super Detail (DSD) edge-correction circuitry. Selectable velocity scan modulation improves the definition at picture edges, creating sharper images by slowing the horizontal scanning during demanding work--say, when rendering transitions from light to dark parts of an image--and speeding it up when scanning easily rendered sections, like broad dark areas.

The PD-42WV74 also performs 3:2 pulldown detection using JVC's Natural Cinema feature. DVD mastering introduces a common distortion when adjusting 24 frames-per-second movies to 30 fps video; reverse 3:2 pulldown digitally corrects this distortion, removing the redundant information to display a film-frame-accurate picture.

Other technologies include White Character Correction circuitry, Auto VNR (video noise reduction), Digital Noise Clear circuitry, and black-level expansion. A choice of five video status modes (Theater, Dynamic, Game, Standard, and TheaterPro D6500K) let you tailor the image to your presentation and environment.

For viewing conveniences, you'll love the set's high-contrast, icon-based onscreen display, interactive plug-in menu, single-tuner split-screen PIP (with zoom, POP, and 12-channel multi-indexing), XDS channel ID display, XDS auto clock set, multi-function timer, sleep timer, 10-minute auto shut-off, parental controls (including front-panel lock, V-Chip, and channel guard), and hyper-scan high-speed channel changer with Return+.

And how does it sound? Just wait 'til you hear the set's unobtrusive stereo (left/right) speakers and built-in, bottom-ported subwoofer, all powered by a hefty 12 watts per channel x 3. Active Hyper Bass beefs up the set's low-end sound, BBE High Definition Audio improves speech intelligibility and restores the dynamic range of compressed musical passages, and Advanced HyperSurround simulates enveloping surround sound from any two speakers.

Connections include the above-mentioned DVI input, 2 auto-sensing HD component-video inputs, 3 S-video inputs, 4 composite-video-based AV inputs, and an RF input. The set comes with an outboard tuner box that houses most video connections and its cable-ready NTSC tuner, while the supplied EL-based (electro luminescence) illuminated universal remote operates the PD-42WV74 and most other home-entertainment components.

The JVC XL-PR1 is a portable CD player which will play audio CDs, plus CD-R/RW discs. The PR1 is also contains a digital FM/AM radio receiver. To keep your favorite radio stations a simple click away, JVC has provided this player with twenty FM and ten AM presets. The CD player's anti-skip system provides forty-five seconds of memory. This makes the player a nice choice for people who like to listen to their favorite CDs while exercising or while commuting on the bus. If you decide to purchase a few key optional accessories, this player could be used in a vehicle's cassette player; the sleek and modern carbon fiber finish would certainly compliment any color of interior.

Yet, even without the optional accessories, the player is a nice choice for portable listening. The player is made to be stowed in thin places; the player's footprint is compact. There are four play mode options, including normal play, repeat, random, and twenty-track program. The overhead style headphones are comfortable and streamlined. With the included AC adaptor, you have the option for battery-free listening enjoyment. If you use alkaline batteries, you can expect the player to last up to twenty hours. Assisting you in saving battery life, the auto power-off feature turns the player off when not in use after a certain amount of time. Sound quality is much improved with the hyper-bass sound system. Other features include: hold switch, 1-bit D/A converter, DC input and heat-resistant casing.

2-0 out of 5 stars Flawed product
I purchased this CD player as a replacement for my old Panasonic that I had for years. I wasn't too concerned about the radio because I just wanted a good, reliable CD player. Needless to say the radio is nothing great, especially if you live in a city or close to a local FM station. It picks up nothing but interference from the local FM stations and can't pull in the distant ones. In a weak area it would probably get better reception. When I tried the CD player, I was impressed- the sound and Hyper bass boost were teriffic. The anti shock seemed to work well and the max volume was pretty loud. However, the problems started almost a week later. One night after about 20 minutes of use the CD player just shut itself off in the middle of the song. I turned it back on and it played fine, but a few days later the same problem occurred. Needless to say the batteries were brand new. Thinking I had a lemon, I exchanged it for another and had the exact same problem with the second one. After 2 bad units in a row I took the second one back and got a refund. A few weeks later I was in another store and saw a similar version of this model (XL-PR10, which had rechargeable batteries) and decided to give it a try. When I pushed play it read the CD, played for 2 seconds, and shut off (again I was using new batteries). Turned it on again, same thing happened. Obviously this one went back also. Apparently this is a faulty JVC product. Maybe there are a few good ones out there, but after 3 strikes I wouldn't recommend this CD player to anyone. It seemed great at first, but do yourself a favor and avoid it as it is not worth the hassle of returning it multiple times.

4-0 out of 5 stars Another Successful JVC Player
I am a big fan of JVC products, and this one is no exception. I have known JVC to be Rock Solid on performance and durability, and this one truly delivers. JVC combines a CD Player with an AM/FM Tuner for maximum music playing. Durabilitywise, you can drop this thing all day long, and it'll still play without missing a beat (As long as the Anti-Shock is active). I like the slick fence-like design, and the display on the player is large enough where you can see what you are listening to and also displays the Anti-Shock on the right side of the screen. Another feature is Progamming of the AM/FM tuner, something I look for most in these types of players. The instructions to programming the tuner is really simple.

I fully endorse the JVC XL-PR1 Portable CD Player. Another great item by JVC. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Great design meets terrific sound in the JVC FS-V100, which offers basic CD, cassette, and radio functionality. Two-way, bass-reflex speakers are housed in real wood enclosures and powered by a hefty 26 watts per channel (x2). The full-logic cassette deck offers auto tape selection (normal/chrome) and auto-reverse functionality for both recording and playback. Need to hook up your MP3 player, DVD player, or VCR? Plug it right into the system's rear-panel auxiliary audio input.

Listen to CD tracks in a desired order using the unit's 20-track programming, and use the built-in clock for a daily alarm, sleep timer, or as a recording timer so you don't miss a critical radio broadcast. The tuner offers 30 FM and 15 AM station presets with auto setting.

A 1-bit digital-to-analog converter and electronic bass and treble controls contribute to the system's clear, and adjustable, tone. Active Hyper Bass Pro gives low frequencies a boost while minimizing distortion, and the package includes a convenient remote control, JVC's Compu Play feature (which lets you fire up the system at the touch of any button), and a backlit liquid-crystal display.

5-0 out of 5 stars compact excellence
this cd player has the look of quality. In our day and age that is a lrge part of our society. We hear everyday that you shouldn't judge a book my it's cover but everyone knows that we all do. Everyone trys to moke their products look appealing so that others will btu them without making them qaulity. This cd player cought my eye right away and i looked at its features and realized that it was perfect for my daughter. I have a past with buying things over the internet and then not getting them for a few weeks, then they finally come and either they're broken or something is broken so i will be giong to you store to buy one. I makes it much more convinient. Speaking of convenience, having this web site makes it much more efficient to see and buy things. I don't have to travel to five differnt stores before i find the perfect appliance in color make and size. One thing tat would help thought would be to show the width and length of the object so that people dont have to make estimates that are usually wrong and then have to find something different. Thank you for you time.

1-0 out of 5 stars Bad out of the box
The CD player refused to work right. It started out only reading some CDs, and quickly stopped playing them all together. Every CD I put in, the display would read "no disc." A bad value at any price.

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice unit--if you don't need raging power
I enjoyed owning this baby. It has nice sound, quality radio reception, and a handy remote control. The motorized cd lid is sorta nifty too. My only complaint is that the speakers are on the small side and the bass sound doesn't resonate as it should. But I hooked up my quality bookshelf speakers instead, which really sounded great. If you're looking to fill a large area, shop for another unit. If you just need a bedroom or office stereo, this one offers you the compact size and quality you're looking for.

2-0 out of 5 stars Started out well...
I purchased this microsytem in April, and within months my stereo was malfunctioning. The radio and cassette deck work fine, it is the CD player which is giving me problems. On nearly every CD I play, halfway through the disc a scratching sound is heard. Despite having tried every possible cleaning method, it still does not work properly. I was very disappointed with this, as i love the style and the sound is great aside from that. I would suggest taking an extended warranty.

5-0 out of 5 stars JVC'S great little wonder
I have now owned this JVC system for almost 2 weeks I LOVE IT!! This is my first JVC brand stereo I've purchased. I bought this after my Pamasonic died out after 6 yrs of use. The system itself is user friendly (I thought so) The speakers are small but they deliver a smooth mellow sound (depends greatly though on your type of music) I found out that I didn't have to crank the volume to get a decent delivery of sound and music. The lay out is simple the tape deck sits atop the unit the cd player is vertical in the way of loading discs (I absolutely LOVE the cd player portion of the unit). My only gripe is that the speaker cable is longer enough to move them (the speakers) around to another part of a room. I would really recommend this system if your short on space (like me) this is perfect for an office or bedroom. ... Read more


150. JVC HX-Z30 Compact Stereo (Silver)

Amazon.com Product Description

Looking for a compact stereo system with slamming low-end authority? Look no further. Whether JVC's HX-Z30 can really be called "compact" may open to debate, but rest assured that the system houses a five-disc super-slim magazine changer, a dual-well, full-logic cassette deck, an FM/AM tuner with 45 presets (30 FM, 15 AM), as well as 80 watts per channel for the speakers and a rafter-rattling 190 watts per channel for the system's two large-diaphragm subwoofers.

The speakers are in many ways the focal point of the HX-Z30. Each speaker is outfitted with a 5.75-inch cone woofer, a two-inch cone tweeter, and an additional 7.875-inch cone subwoofer with six-layer voice coils for extra efficiency. The subwoofers even get their own separate, three-position level control.

The CD player offers play exchange, letting you swap two discs while the third plays, and 99-track programming for extended and custom-sequenced music listening sessions. A single-bit digital-to-analog converter delivers your music with clarity and punch. CD synchro-start recording makes copying discs to cassette a cinch. Three preset and three custom equalizer curves and four simulated surround sound settings (dance/club/hall/stadium) grant flexibility in tailoring the system's sound to your musical preferences.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome sound!!!
This stereo is by far the best one I or anyone I know has owned. Its dual sub-woofers really pound out the bass. It doesn't distort at max volume either. It's also super easy to use. The only real downside is the size, it is really big. If any one is looking at buying this stereo, it is well worth the pretty penny.

5-0 out of 5 stars terrible...terrible....terrible.......
Well first of all if you like things falling off the walls this is the stereo for you. I have had near death experiences with this stereo, for instance when the car collection of my dads fell off the wall in their room (which is down the hall) and everything seemed fine (luckily), and they had no idea it was caused by their sons harmless stereo. The other bad thing is that my door rattles really bad!, it was funny for the first 15 mins and after that it was anything but funny..... The other bad thing is if you have the stereo on the same shelf as the reciever you can have a skipping problem but this is only if you have the stereo on like 25 out of 30 which is SUPRISINGLY loud, but as you can see I LOVE THIS STEREO!!!! And I relocated my speakers from next to the reciever and my tv (for it was turning blue from the magnets) so now it is fine! I do not reccomend this for your grandparents birthday! I bought mine off ebay in pieces so it only cost me 125 with shipping (the reciever was 75 and the speakers were 50) Have a great day!

Amazon.com Product Description

JVC's ultra-slim XVN40BK DVD player is as much about audio playback as video, having been optimized for the high audio sampling frequency of 192 kHz, providing extra-wide dynamic range to realize the benefits of high-spec sources. Even CD playback benefits from higher-bit digital decoding. You want quality and convenience? Try format compatibility with DVD-Video, VCD, DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD+RW, CD, JPEG image CD-R, and MP3 CD. But it's definitely no slouch in the video department, offering JVC's digital direct progressive-scanning. Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, providing higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts.

The model's 10-bit, 54 MHz video sampling frequency ensures detailed images and clear, pure colors for DVD movies. And, with seven parameters to adjust, the unit's Video Fine Processor (VFP) provides exceptional versatility in fine-tuning images to personal preferences. The player gives a choice of either optical or coaxial digital-audio output for routing Dolby Digital or DTS 5.1-channel surround signals to a compatible audio/video receiver.

A high-resolution onscreen graphical user interface (GUI) allows Windows-like interactive operation with tool bars superimposed onto the TV screen for simple, point-and-click operation. Other conveniences include AV CompuLink (which optimizes performance when using the player in conjunction with other JVC equipment), Quick Start, 1.5x playback with sound, 13-step zoom, and screen fill (which zooms in on a DVD image to eliminate letterbox "bars" on the TV screen). ...

5-0 out of 5 stars What A Deal!
Doesn't JVC understand that they cannot afford to sell an incredible dvd player for under $90.00--especially when it out performs a $280.00 top brand name dvd player. MY family gave this baby the full test: DVD movies, Audio CDs, CD-R audio, CD-R video slide shows, CD-R jpegs, and the ultimate -- An original collector's edition DVD movie that would breakup every time on our $280.00 DVD player (it played flawlessly with the JVC). Needless to say, the JVC XV-N40BK is now hooked up to our home entertainment system & the "expensive" model is headed to Ebay! Don't take my word, check what Consumer Reports says about this machine!

5-0 out of 5 stars Can't beat it for the price!
This is a great machine. I upgraded from an older Apex player and I'm glad I did. I immediately noticed much improved audio and the video is great too using the component connections. So far it has played every format I've tried, with no problems...DVD, CD, CD-R, MP3, and JPEG. One of my major complaints with my old player was that it took forever to load a disc, whether DVD or CD. This unit loads them up quickly.

I've read some complaints about this player being light and cheaply made. It is a pretty slim machine, but come on, it just sits there! How rough can you be with a piece of electronics? One last feature I like is the remote. I can easily switch control back and forth between my JVC TV and DVD player. The buttons are well placed and easy to follow.

I'm still looking for some negatives with this player, but have not found any yet. If you don't need a 5-disc changer, then buy this model now.

4-0 out of 5 stars great player for the price
Picked up a refurbished model from eCost for under $50. Plays my Nero-burned VCDs with no problem, and more importantly to me, it has built-in PAL-NTSC conversion. The remote might not be the easiest to use, but given the dirt cheap price, I am quite satisfied.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Player with Few Flaws
I got this player new for around $100. It matches my Sony receiver just right and is awesome for music CDs and DVDs. I also read that it was the top-rated Consumer Reports DVD player.

The picture and sound quality so far have been superb with it hooked up through component. However, I have seen the stuttering problem occur on this player in panning scenes, but it only happens if I start pause the movie a lot. I can play movies from start to finish and pause a couple of times and never see it stutter. Another thing is that I have never seen the 4:3 PS mode work to stretch a widescreen movie to fit the whole screen. Isn't that what it's supposed to do on some DVDs (if any)?

It does read all kinds of discs and supports Pro Scan too. I really like how any disc will begin to play after only 2-3 seconds on this player. Coax and Optical audio outs are also a definite plus. I recommend this as an excellent DVD/CD player.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Picture, Great Sound
I have had this JVC unit now for about two weeks. It replaced my aging high-end, at the time, Toshiba which was having trouble playing DVD-R's CD-R's etc. I am very impressed by this unit. It plays any disc I put into it, including MP3's - a big plus.

The picture and sound are outstanding. I use it soley in 480P and it is jaw dropping on my 65" HDTV.

A really happy customer. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Value for money
I am really not a JVC fan, and this was my first JVC product. It is a medium market level product, without most of the cutting edge technology. It is marketed as a DVD player without too many frills and it delivers just that. Plays almost any DVD rewritable format (DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD+RW, DVD-RW) and SVCD, VCD, CD and MP3 CD. I had a problem with an Imation DVD+R, it plays on my older sony dvd but refuses to be read on the JVC. User interface is clean and intuitive, with minimal setup. New disc read speed is very quick, and so is the resume; From power off to resume play is less that 3 seconds, which is impressive.

Overall, excellent product at a excellent price for a non - prgressive scan machine. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

An incredibly high 3,000:1 contrast ratio (3 to 6 times higher than that of many comparable displays), exclusive four-point color management circuitry, and a host of other high-end video features make the JVC PD-42WX84 42-inch high-definition widescreen plasma TV an appealing choice for the demanding user.

The 16:9 wide-format screen features a native resolution of 1024 x 768, and can display high-definition video at a resolution of 770p (in fact, it scales up or scales down all video source signals so that they display properly at 770p). Its four-point color management works by taking pinpoint samples of each of the four display colors--green, yellow, red, and blue--and compensating to achieve the right color balance. In addition, its selectable TheaterPro 6500 Kelvin color temperature setting is the NTSC standard, allowing programs to be seen as they were intended to be seen.

Another plus for film enthusiasts, the TV features 3:2 pulldown, which reassembles the frame sequence of your original film-based content from DVDs to more accurately reproduce the original 24-frame-per-second material. Digital edge-correction circuitry, video noise reduction, and on/off switchable velocity scan modulation all contribute to excellent-quality imagery.

The 36-watt BBE High Definition audio system with Advanced HyperSurround and Active Hyper Bass includes two direct-drive slim side speakers and a separate subwoofer for full, rich sound.

Additional convenient features include aspect selection and zoom, an icon-based menu system, an interactive plug-in menu, and a multifunction timer. For checking two channels at once, the PD-42WX84 can show a split-screen image with zoom, as well as picture-on-picture with 12-channel multi-indexing. It has both a sleep timer and a 10-minute shutoff feature. The included electro-luminescence-based remote control has all buttons illuminated, and includes hyper-scan high-speed channel changing.

The PD-42WX84 accepts two sets of high-resolution component-video inputs (either Y Pb Pr or Y Cb Cr, auto-sensing), DVI input with HDCP copy protection, 3 S-video inputs, 4 A/V (composite) inputs, and an RF input. Most of these inputs are on the separate--but included--tuner box.

1-0 out of 5 stars Incredibly disappointing
Do your self a favor and don't waste your money on this poor excuse for a plasma screen. The pixilation is incredibly obvious and there are much better screens out there for a lot less money. Sony, Samsung or even Gateway would be a better choice. Compared to the set I have, a $200 CRT would be a better choice. This is a $4500 boat anchor.

On top of everything else, JVC's customer service (which borders on being non-existent) is terribly rude and not helpful at all. They are unprofessional in the extreme.

1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible Plasma
This plasma has great specs on paper, but actually looks terrible. The color banding and pixelation is horrible in all resolutions and formats. I tried this tv with every connection it had from multiple dvd players and a pc. The problems were obvious regardless of the source.

I sent it in for repair only to hear back from JVC that it is performing within specifications, which is pretty sad considering I have a 25 year old CRT that looks better.

Avoid this plasma. The specs and price may look good, but the plasma itself is horrible quality.

2-0 out of 5 stars Really Bad So Cal Service!
Poor analog picture quality regardless of source (including component input). Severe solarization from bright or reflective picture content. Spent 5 months trying to have it repaired and now it's worse! HDTV 1080i w/HDCP only works with the Samsung Direct TV Receiver. HDTV/HDCP/DVI compatability a BIG problem! Actual HDTV via DVI input looks good when I finally got it to work! These issues might be the reason that the price for this model have dropped over $1500 in the past 6 months! DON'T BUY JVC! Much better choices out there!

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply Fantastic
We're really amazed by this TV. We had planned to buy another Plasma screen TV that cost more, but we ended up choosing this one because it blew the others away. It's great from it's features to the way it looks. It's Just an awsome buy. If you are in the market in this price range, look no further. GET THIS ONE. ... Read more

JVC's FS-A52 executive microsystem packs tons of features into a compact, space-saving design. It's loaded with 25 watts per channel, two-step Active Hyper-Bass PRO, and two-way, bass-reflex speakers--the better to enjoy music from CD, radio, and cassette tape. The CD-R/CD-RW-compatible CD player boasts JVC's typically excellent-sounding 1-bit digital-to-analog converter and offers continuous play, random play, repeat play, and 32-track programming. An optical digital-audio output facilitates hookup with a PC, minidisc player, or outboard CD recorder.

The digital tuner stores an impressive 30 FM and 15 AM stations, and does so automatically when you first set up the system. The cassette deck benefits from full-logic control, auto-reverse (for both record and play), ALC (automatic recording level control), auto tape selector (Normal, CrO2, metal), and CD Synchro/Complete Recording. A pair of stereo RCA analog-audio inputs lets you listen to audio from a PC or MP3 player, and electronic bass and treble controls help tailor the sound to your preference or compensate for listening conditions.

The unique backlit liquid-crystal display has seven preset colors and 58 color variations, which can be set to show randomly or gradually, or to change daily. This large screen shows all key functions at a glance. A built-in clock/timer has daily, record, and sleep functions. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

In the old days, only bottom-of-the-barrel DVD players came this cheap. DVD players have come a long way in a short time, though, and so have features. The slim, silvery XV-S502SL doesn't use much shelf space, but its benefits are huge: premium progressive-scan video outputs (for use with HD and HD-ready TVs), MP3 and JPEG disc compatibility, and a range of audio hookup and playback options. We found the XV-S502SL's slide-show feature one of its coolest. Be warned, though, that higher-resolution images take longer to load--up to 10 seconds on shots from a one-megapixel camera. But then, higher-resolution pics offer greater rewards when zooming: the unit takes you beyond 4x and 16x all the way to a blurry but amazing 1,024x. It also lets you reduce the image size to .125x.

A handy top-menu button zips you past the FBI warnings, previews, and other pre-menu annoyances written into many commercial DVDs. We were happy to be able to switch the audio format while playing (as from Dolby Digital to uncompressed PCM on a music video), an option some affordable players don't offer. The sound is great from the unit's 1-bit P.E.M. D.D. converter, which boasts 192 kHz/24-bit audio resolution. When playing an MP3 disc, the player displays the artists and song titles onscreen, simplifying navigation.

You get two digital-audio inputs (optical and coaxial), a stereo RCA analog output, and one each composite-video and S-video output. A set of component-video outputs feeds a DVD signal to a compatible TV. The unit comes with a remote control, two AA batteries, a user's manual, a component-video cable, a composite-video cable, and a stereo analog interconnect.--Michael Mikesell

Pros:

  • Easy setup
  • Fast disc operations (start-up, chapter advance, etc.)
  • Pristine, progressive-scan video output
  • Top Menu function a real time saver
  • JPEG slide shows a nice option
  • Remote control sits nicely in hand

5-0 out of 5 stars For VCD/SVCD/MP3 enthusiasta
I purchased this specifically for its capability to play VCDs and SVCDs. It wasn't the cheapest player on the store shelf but it was the only one that specifically stated support for the above formats. The case is slim and elegant, almost delicate looking with its streamlined buttons and low key styling. It weighs almost nothing and while in operation doesn't even get slightly warm...a good sign that quality components are inside. The drive is quiet and spools up quickly and the remote is a joy to operate. As i also have a JVC television the small TV/DVD switch allows me to operate both devices. Video quality is outstanding and the onscreen menus are slick, attractive and intuitive. If you have never seen progressive scan output this will be an eye-opener, wow. This is one well-thought out DVD player. MP3 support is excellent with long filenames. It does not have shuffle or playlist features though, and JPEG picture view speed could be better. Picture loading is very slow but the output is excellent. One possible firmware bug I discovered is that the screen saver kicks in while watching a movie. I simply turned off that annoying feature and all was well. Other features include a stereo enhancer and Theatre Mode.
Support for VCD, SVCD, MP3, DVD is excellent. This sucker will play just about anything you put in the tray. It is not picky about CDR/CDRW media at all and even 200-pack generics work great. No need to waste your cash on expensive brand name media. The outputs include component video, S-Video and digital fiber optic audio option. Considering how wonderful the video is out of the plain RCA single port, The S-video or component out should be all that much better.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great player
I'm not necessarily a video-phile, but I know enough about DVD players to know a good one when I see one.

This JVC player has a ton of great options. Progressive scan, component video, etc.

All this stuff comes second to buyers like me, who demand not really picture perfect video quality, but simply that it works and it works well. This is where the JVC shows its stuff. It has never skipped on me. Layer changes are barely noticable. The load time is little to none for a DVD, and skipping through MP3's is pretty painless as well. One of my older players would take almost twenty seconds loading an MP3 disc; not so on this JVC.

Any complaints? Sure. As other reviewers have said, the buttons are a bit frail on the player. But this is overcome by the great remote control. Also, the disc tray seems a little fragile as well. But if you are careful, this will never become a big deal.

1-0 out of 5 stars Same problem as the Dec 24 2003 reviewer
Will not turn on out of STANDBY mode. The unit is about 15 months old. If anybody has figured out a cost-effective way to solve this, please post

2-0 out of 5 stars LASTED A MONTH PAST WARRANTY
After reviewing and deciding to buy this unit, I was satisfied with the performance until 13 months after buying....wont turn on out of standby. The problem is, it is cheaper to buy a replacement than get fixed based on labor and parts. However, my next unit will not be a JVC as the timing at one month out of warranty is not a good sign.

I checked all the ratings on this DVD player. They were all good,

3-0 out of 5 stars Good and the bad
I've had this player for quite some time now, here's my assessment:

Good
- 7 disc capacity, very nice. Some complain about noise during switching, mine's behind a glass door, I don't care.
- DVD-Audio, excellent sound quality. CD player specs are also excellent
- Very good bass management (unfortunately, not for discrete DVD-Audio output)
- Price/Value is excellent, you have to go to a very expensive player to get carousel and DVD-Audio

Bad
- MP3 functionality is extremely primitive, almost useless
- Lack of random playback across discs is a major deficiency
- Clunky control structure and UI make it a PITA to operate

It's a good player, but has some big problems. Price is the big attraction here. Still waiting for the perfect player, probably will ALWAYS be waiting....

1-0 out of 5 stars BAD player- very unreliable. Money pit.
Bought this player because we wanted to be able to play one disk daily and then other disks occasionally without needing to insert and remove the daily exercise video. This player seemed to fit the bill.

HOWEVER- I suggest staying far away from this model, and in general ANY electronic device that doesn't come with an honest 1 year warranty (at least!). Watch out for SONY, too.

First, the trays jammed on us (luckily within the 90 days "labor" warranty). Got that repaired, and it worked okay for a few months, though never played CDs right. Then, the audio started fluttering in and out at random. Turned out to be a $140 dollar repair ("parts" were free, though "labor" was $140). Try asking for your warranteed replacement "parts" so you can fix it yourself, and you'll see how useless the warranty is: after 90 days you MUST use an authorized repair facility to get your warranteed replacement parts- so essentially after about 12 weeks of use you pay for all "repairs" (or defects).

Anyway, we paid the $140 to fix this 8 month old JVC player. 2 weeks later the audio problem has returned. I will take great pleasure in tossing this JVC garbage out of a second story window onto concrete, and will never buy another "90 day warranty" device again.

1-0 out of 5 stars A quirky player that may not be right for you...
Just to add a few more pros/cons to what others said:

PROs:

This multi-disc player handles more formats than any other comparable multi-disc player when I bought it: DVDs, CDs, MP3s, CD-Rs (even Black CD-Rs), VCDs, SVCDs, DVD-Audio.

The 7 disc capacity over the standard 5 disc of others is nice.

It's footprint is not quite as large as others would lead you to believe.

CONs:

This player has some very awkward and unacceptable UI quirks.

For example, there is no "Next Disc" function. This seems so obvious and simple, but is not available - and believe me, you will miss it. To advance to another disc, you have to press the "Disc" button plus a number button for whatever tray you want.

That wouldn't be so bad, except that the unit gives you no indication what disc tray you are on save a blinking orange light. This blinking orange light is of no use when you are sitting more than 3 feet from the player, and might even be annoying to some as it "blinks" throughtout playback. So, orange blinking light that serves no purpose other than to annoy. Ouch.

Another nasty omission is lack of time functions on DVD. You cannot, for example, show elapsed time for Chapter, or remaining time for Chapter, Disc, etc. There simply is no excuse for this. I like to know how much time is left remaining on a disc, and this unit cannot tell me. Ugh.

My particular unit turns itself on from Standby at random intervals for no reason - as if it were possessed by a ghost. I have no idea if this is a problem with the unit in general or not.

I needed a replacement player that was multidisc and could handle all the formats mentioned above. I bought this player because I couldn't wait a few months for the next batch of newer models that might have fit the bill...

You might want to wait.

3-0 out of 5 stars CD Users Beware!
The lack of true "random play" across all discs, while hardly an issue for DVD users, is a major deficiency for those used to loading up a bunch of your favorite CDs and getting several hours of randomly slected and therefore varied tunes. JVC should call what it offers "single disc random play" to better apprise internet buyers who can't test the machine in person.

4-0 out of 5 stars clarifications
this player (as well as the F85) comes in three colors:

gold (FA95)

silver (FA92)

black (FA90)

some people complained that it didn't come in silver.

also, no dvd-audio player has a digital output. it's only 6.1 analog out.

as for the product, it is the best overall player in its price range. do your research before you pontificate. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

A perfect introduction into the world of digital video, the GR-DVL520U provides all the features you need to get rolling, including a 16x optical zoom, digital image stabilization, and IEEE 1394 compatible outputs.

Lens
Breaking the mold that most other digital camcorders fall in, the GR-DVL520U has a very bright f1.8 lens, which should help with a dilemma common to many digital camcorders: poor low-light performance. While not useful at the highest levels, the optical zoom is augmented by a 700x digital zoom, which can supply that little bit extra you might need in some circumstances. Paired with the zoom is a digital image stabilizer, which will help eliminate much of the shakiness associated with high zoom levels.

Shooting Functions
The GR-DVL520U provides some camera functions, which can be quite useful if you spend the time to learn to use them. The camera gives you manual control over focus, exposure, and white balance, all of which affect the way your image is recorded. The manual focus and white balance modes are perhaps the most exciting, as you can use them to create depth-of-field effects, and the white balance will allow you to light a room without investing in expensive lighting gear. In addition, JVC added in a number of digital wipes and fades, as well as a black fader.

Output Options
If you want to play your footage on television, the 520U provides two connection methods: S-video and standard RCA-style AV connectors. S-video provides the better video resolution, but you'll still need to use the AV cable for audio, as S-video doesn't carry an audio signal. If your object is to edit your movies on a computer, the camera also comes equipped with an IEEE 1394 compliant port for shuttling video back and forth. It's a four-pin connector, and most computers with IEEE 1394 ports have six-pin connectors, so make sure you pick up the correct cable (JVC doesn't provide one).

Digital Still Mode
Like many digital camcorders, the GR-DVL520U provides a digital still mode, and stores the resulting images onto an included 8 MB MultiMediaCard. You can also use SD cards. The images aren't very high resolution and are generally fit only for posting on the Web, or e-mailing to friends. To get the photos to your computer, the 520U utilizes a built-in USB port, and comes with the cable and software to accomplish the transfer. ... Read more

Features

  • 520 lines of resolution with high-band processor
  • Night Alive for full color shooting in extreme low light

4-0 out of 5 stars Good for entry level
Looking for my first ever video camera, I stumbled upon this 520A JVC, looks sleek, light weight, fair functionability, 800 000 pixels for digital stills (which is not bad for it's price).

Compared to the sony at a similar price range, it lacked a few added extras which some may find useful :
1. Mpeg (not particularly that useful I suppose if you have firewire)
2. Night scope (the JVC does NOT COmpare to sony's night vision! - it just decreases shutter speed)
3. Battery life - I think that the sony stamina battery lasts a lot longer than the jvc pack.
4. Quality of video - this is debatable - I couldn't tell the diffirence though I was told that sony has a better colour.
5. USB streaming
6. B&W viewer - it's quite annoying if you're used to a colour viewer. The LCD screen however is very clear. The sony has a TFT active matrix which may be slightly better. I was told that the LCD screen has a shorter life-span.

Compared to the Canon ZX5series - some also have an SD Card, the JVC is cheaper, looks sleeker (I think) but similar otherwise.

The SD card is very useful - I wouldn't buy one without a card. The battery life could be better. I think it's closer to 1 hour recording time. Even the so called "stamina" battery (which was not original) only lasted <1hr recording time.

Apart from the above, I feel satisfied with my purchase. I bought it in singapore and it was the cheapest of the digital cameras with similar functionality.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good entry-level miniDV camera for the price
The JVC DVL520U digital video camera is the central camera in the JVC 320U, 520U, and 720U line. Each of these cameras offers the same basic technology with varying features. The 520U shares the same remote as the 320U. The 720U remote contains more functionality. The 520U remote contains all the usual basic capabilities, including rewind, fast forward, playback, record, etc. The 520U also shares the same memory card as the 720U, which is 8Mb in size. The raw technology of all these units is essentially the same. What differentiate them are the features JVC activates and implements in each model.

The 520U specifications are as follows:

- 680,000 pixel CCD (1/4")
- 110,000 pixel, 2.5" LCD monitor (270 degree rotation)
- F1.8 lens
- B/W viewfinder
- Night Alive full color low light recording
- 10x optical zoom
- 700x digital zoom
- PCM stereo audio
- 16x9 squeeze mode
- 1024 x 768 digital stills
- Picture stabilization
- SD/multimedia card
- USB interface
- DV input/output
- S-video and A/V output terminals
- Audio dubbing
- Numerous fades, wipes, and effects

The 520U provides very good features and functionality for a miniDV camera in its price range. Not all features work as well as other manufacturers. Picture stabilization, for instance, is much better on the Sony models than this camera. Night Vision is also not that useful for moving images in very low light conditions. I tried shooting a fireworks display using the Night Vision feature. An image was accumulated and stored by the CCD about every 1/2 second, making the outcome choppy and unusable.

The software bundle provided with the camera is excellent and a USB driver is provided. It's very easy to transfer pictures from the camera to the computer. With the proper editing cable (not supplied), video can be edited on a computer with excellent results. An audio/video cable is provided, which enables viewing and transferring video. A USB cable is provided to transfer images from the video card to a computer.

The 520U is capable of storing pictures to either a memory card or video. A snapshot button enables the shutter to operate. If you're new to this capability, be aware that at this time pictures obtained using current video technology do not match the quality you will get from a digital camera. Likewise, digital cameras cannot match the quality of video recorded on a miniDV camera. You buy a video camera for quality video, not snapshots. You buy a digital camera for quality snapshots, not video.

Regardless, the 520U delivers adequately usable snapshots. I like being able to add a picture collage in the middle of my videos. For example, I took a walk on the beach and recorded it. In the middle of the video suddenly you hear the sound of a shutter click and there's a picture of a seagull wading in the water; another shutter click and a picture of a dog bounding out of the water; another shutter click and a picture of a child building a sand castle, etc. Each shot stays on for about 5 seconds or so and whatever sound occurs in those five seconds is also recorded. Later, you can dub audio of your favorite song over the collage before going back to the video action of your family enjoying a boat tour the following day. The creative possibilities are endless!

Pictures directed to the video will be stored in the middle of whatever you're taping. You can also select to have pictures saved on the memory card, which provides the best quality. From the memory card, they can be transferred to your computer. This is a very nice feature. If you don't mind the limited image quality, it's quite handy to have video and picture capability in one small camera.

Where this camera really shines is in video quality; it's exceptional! The miniDV format provides 520 lines of resolution. Color balance is very nice and the internal settings enable you to take manual control of the white balance or set it to automatic.

Another nice feature I haven't seen on all cameras is the ability to correct for backlighting. Let's say you're in a room with many windows on a sunny day. Many cameras will meter the windows and you end-up with the room appearing too dark. The JVC has a backlight button that corrects for these conditions and it works quite impressively.

The BN-V408U 800mAh Lithium-ion battery supplied is the smallest battery available for this camera. Using the LCD display, you will get only about 30 to 45 minutes of record/playback time. I'd strongly suggest purchasing the BN-V428U 2500mAh battery, which can be purchased on eBay for about $30 with shipping (search for "JVC BN-V428U battery"). I get about three to four hours of use with this battery.

In short, if you are on a limited budget and would like a decent beginning miniDV camera, the JVC is a very nice unit. If you have more of a budget, I'd suggest the Sony models, which offer all these features with equivalent or superior quality (depending on the feature compared).

If you decide to purchase this camera, always purchase from an authorized dealer, like Amazon.com. There are many dealers who sell this camera for a lower price, but what they don't tell you is if anything fails and the unit requires service, JVC will not honor the warranty. You must show proof of purchase from an authorized JVC dealer to receive service.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good entry/mid level camcorder...
Hi,
We have been using this for 18 months now, and it's travelled continents and has give us no problems at all!

At least 3 MiniDV tapes, an extra battery, and a carrying bag are essentials.

This camcorder is excellent value. The only con is low light recording is not good, but that's the case with most camcorders.

3-0 out of 5 stars common problem is microfuse on the mainboard
There are many reviews on this DV camcorder at this website and I don't see any need to elaborate the functionality of it. However, I had one terrible experience with this one which is discussed below. I also found by email from three other JVC 520U user that they had the same problem and fixed it easily.
After the warranty is over, this stopped working (no power up). Took it a JVC dealer repair shop (George Meyer, Santa Monica, Los Angeles). He tried to rip me by asking me to pay $275 for labor and $22.00 for parts. I did not repair it from that guy. Finally, I bought the repair manual ($16) and opened the stuff myself. A microfuse on the main board was gone, which I replaced it myself and costed me 59 cents for a new microfuse. Though there is competetion in getting the thing smaller, there is no need to put a fuse soldered on the main board which most people can't even identify/access. If it fails often, let the consumer access it from outside (using a glass molded fuse). I assume that companies do it intentially to help the dealers rip you as soon as it breaks or you will end up buying a new item.
good luck, if you get into the same problem.

3-0 out of 5 stars Great Low Cost Entry to Mini DV recording
I am a TV producer, but I can't always run aound with a XLS-1 with me. This is far the least expensive DV cam I've found, nice basic features, leans a little on the blued and the autofocus is quite slow in lower loght situations. Still, if you want a nice 520 line rez DV cam with nice zoom features and firewire and USB connect capabilites, this can't be beat. However, the prices I've seen here are a bit high, I grabbed mine at BJ's discount for $298 - and I've seen it listed here for up to 40% more. So shop around, it's a basic DV cam that's been discontinued. I love it for the money, but I wouldn't spend $400 or $500 on it. There are plenty of better cams in those price ranges. But if you can get this for anywhere near $300 - grab it. Wou won't be disappointed. I used to pay thousands of dollars more for SP Betacams with less lines of resolution, analog technology and the need to convert analog to digital for editing. Try this baby first. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Sleek, affordable, and attractive, the JVC TH-A30 enriches the home theater experience through its 5.1-channel surround and progressive-scan DVD player. The device offers decoding for Dolby Digital, DTS, and Pro Logic formats, which individually offer discrete, full-bodied surround sound through the included five satellite speakers and subwoofer. For superior video, the component uses its progressive-scan output to display a crisp image at 60 frames per second.

The system plays CD, DVD, CD-R/RW, video CD, SVCD, and MP3 formats, giving users a variety of listening options. Users will also enjoy the five-mode digital acoustic processor, which simulates the environmental acoustics at live concerts, along with the dynamic range compression, which lets you experience powerful sound even at low volume levels. The DVD player is equipped with many of the most popular features, including zoom, slow motion, resume, and a multi-angle function, which allows you to view a scene from several different angles when offered by the DVD (a still-rare option). Consumers who appreciate radio programming will be pleased with the included AM/FM tuner, which offers 15 AM and 15 FM presets.

The elements that really complete the system are the five satellite speakers, each of which features a single 3-3/16-inch full-range driver in a bass reflex enclosure, and the 110-watt subwoofer with its 7-7/8-inch woofer. The speakers are video shielded, so you can place them near a TV, and they also come equipped with mounting threads and holes along the back. To enhance compatibility, the TH-A30 includes composite-video, S-video, and component-video outputs, along with multiple stereo RCA input jacks. The system includes a multibrand remote control and carries a one-year warranty on parts and 90 days on labor.

3-0 out of 5 stars Fan failed
Liked the sound and picture quality until the cooling fan failed after about a year. Now DVDs and some CDs freeze up after it gets too hot unless I keep a portable fan blowing on it during operation. Purchased it at Media Play which has since gone out of business. Having a []time finding a replacement fan. Also wish I would have invested a little more and purchased one with a multiple CD changer.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good Home Theather but...
Well, this is my second Home Theather, first one was a Sony.OK first of all is a nice and very good looking equipment, speakers come with lot of wire. Now let explain my "but" word in review tittle. This JCV comes with "Stock" Sound (average and good) and I use the word Stock because amazing or not, JVC decide to avoid any control of bass and treble. I dont know why, but I dont care any excuses, this is very important for me, obviously each CD, MP3 or even DVD comes with diferent levels of bass and treble and the only control that you have with this Home theater is subw level and delay of speakers... Good equipment overall but...!

3-0 out of 5 stars Aux audio is not capable of Dolbly Digital
Not a bad system, but beware if you are looking to process Dolby 5.1 from a satellite system through this product. The Aux-in only passes analog Dolby Pro-Logic.

Dolby Digital sounds great from DVD source, unfortunately the engineering folks decided for whatever reason not to include an input (or two) for 5.1 outboard sources.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sound that a College Student Can Afford
An amazing system, not only does it play DVDs with Progressive Scan but it also plays MP3s, VCDs, SVCDs, CDs, CD-Rs, and CD-RWs. Which is what any decent audio system should do. It can pick up radio signals. And the remote is rather easy to use.

The sound is great, hooking it up is a breeze. The player has a nice aesthetic to it as well. And the bass, you would not believe the beautiful bass this thing puts out. I am still awestruck by the beautiful sound such a system could put out. Sure, it's no where near the best, but for the price it's top of the line. ... Read more
