The new JVC TH-BA1 and TH-SB100 home theater systems are both 4.1-channel systems that feature a low-profile front surround sound bar and wireless subwoofer. The black, low-profile sound bar includes four speakers, an amplifier and a sound processor. It also features built-in Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II and DTS decoding. Total system power is 220W, with each speaker within the sound bar amplified and housed in a separate internal structure to prevent interference. The sound bar is configured to fit neatly under a TV or can be wall-mounted.
The subwoofer features a 6-5/6-inch (8cm) driver and is powered by its own built-in 100-watt digital amplifier. 2.4GHz digital wireless technology connects the subwoofer to the sound bar, and eliminates the need for a cable connection, providing simple setup and placement flexibility. Power on/off, volume adjustment and source/surround mode selection can be operated using the provided remote control. The JVC TH-BA1 and TH-SB100 home theater systems will be available in September for $399.99 and $699.99, respectively.
