JVC Unveil Two New Soundbars at CES


Distinguished Member
JVC today unveiled two new additions to its home theatre audio line-up with front surround soundbar systems designed to complement today's high definition displays.

For, what Toshiba describes as 'the best possible sound experience', both new soundbars offer SRS StudioSound HD, comprised of SRS TruSurround HD and SRS TruVolume. SRS TruSurround HD processes up to 6.1 channels for playback over two speakers or headphones and uses proprietary algorithms from SRS Labs to optimize bass performance. SRS TruVolume eliminates volume fluctuations when switching from one source to another.

The entry level JVC TH-BC1 is a 60-watt (30 watts per channel), two-channel SRS StudioSound HD front surround soundbar with built-in FM tuner. The TH-BC1 features an analog input and two digital audio inputs (optical and coaxial) and a subwoofer pre-out.

The TH-BC3 adds a push-open dock for iPod/iPhone and HDMI 1.4 – two inputs/one output. It also features HDMI CEC connectivity, 3D ready video pass through, stand by pass through and ARC (Audio Return Channel) for easy setup and usability. The TH-BC3 also adds a composite video output for enjoying movies via iPod/iPhone.

We're unclear as to whether we'll see these in the UK but they are competitively priced at $149.95 and $249.95 respectively, in the States.
