Customer Reviews

These little speakers are great for surround sound!
O. Kurtash
JVC has play, pause, stop buttons and a digital track on the receiver that works for the USB memory, but doesn't affect my iPod at all, nor does the remote.

I am extremely pleased with the sound quality of them, and ease of use.

Ok, I got these speakers because I loved the little digital receiver and the tight bass sound, even though I already have a Creative I-itrigue L3800 computer speakers. First off, the built quality is great and sound quality is phenomenal for a sub/equal to $[...] speakers. The four cubes design is very modern, small and compact. The digital receiver you see in the picture is the same size as the speakers cube. The tiny subwoofer is one of the best out there.

Sound comparisons:
I am going to compare this to my older L-itrigue 3800 that is my standard for computer speakers. I am playing this off a Sound Blaster's Fatality sound card. The L-itrigue is much better overall for sound. It produced excellent high and mid range sound, but good bass. This NXPS1 produced excellent low (bass) and midrange, but only good high. The NXPS1 is a better choice for hip-hop, rap and drum and bass Jazz (Boney James), since the bass is a lot tighter and sounds fuller. I prefer vocal, trance/dance, classical jazz, rock and the I-itrigue is way better. You can hear the vocals (S. Brightman) for rock (Duran) and alternative (Bush, Travis) music much cleaner on the Creative, but kind of muggy on NXPS1. Other music like new age (Engima), trance/ techno (PVK), lounge (St. Germaine) music, and some jazz also perform much better on the I-itrigue with better high, so you get more ambient atmosphere: chiming. The I-trigue bass crack at higher (max) volume then the JVC. The JVC power output is similar to Creative, but seems get much louder, both are powerful enough for computer use.

Features:
JVC hands down is better or cooler, but there are some features that bugged me.

This is a great little stereo system. It works well with my ipod and the sound can be very loud and clear. And its small enough that it can fit anywhere (except the subwoofer). Only downfall, is you can only choose the next song or previous song with the remote control on ipod setting. You cant change the artist, etc. You have to do that from your actual ipod. It did shut my ipod off completley once, I had to reset my ipod...I guess there are still some minor querks. But all in all it is a good product, worth the money spent.

I recommend it.

This little unit really packs a punch for its size. I picked one up for a steal on clearance at Sears for under $30. I must say it was money very well spent. The two small speakers combined with the sub woofer provide the perfect amount of sound for use in my living room. It's much smaller than the 10+ year old bookshelf system that it replaced. I have been able to play all of my iPods (Nano, 4th Gen, Classic, Touch) with no problem. My only peeve is having to physically go over to the iPod to select a new artist or play list. The preset EQ settings are average. I have found that it is best to my liking to just adjust the bass and treble to what I like. Overall I am very pleased with this system. For the sound I would expect to pay at least $80, but not the MSRP of $249.99. For that much you may as well buy a HTIB.

Pros:
Small Size
Great sound

Cons:
iPod controls are limited to PAUSE, NEXT, PREVIOUS.
iPod dock cable is short.
iPod "dock" is at a small angle.

Great sound for the price. The size is just right for my use. Use it every day and am very pleased with the sound. The USB port solves all my space problems as I just rip all my songs to mp3 and store them on a thumb drive. This sytem is pretty basic but does allow you to have random selection of songs - a very nice feature. There is an adjustment for bass/treble and volume. A lot more features that I expected for the price. It also has an Ipod feature that I don't use. Apparently you can hook this up to your PC, have not tried that. The earphone jack is also a nice feature. There is a alarm wakeup function that I have never used but could be useful.

In my opinion this is a very good product with three inconvenient issues: First it only supports IPods that are fourth generation and newer (not all IPods as claimed). While the third generation has the doc connector and fits the cable, it still doesn't connect. Second, the AUX port is on the front behind a door that must be opened to be used. It would be better if it was located on the back, or better yet on the back and front. The third thing I'd like to see is the ability to use the standard IPod doc, currently it only functions when my IPod is connected directly to the provided cable. All things considered, for the price, this is still a very good product and could be excellent with some minor fixes and a little truth in advertising.

This is a pretty good shelf unit. it's TINY - kinda like 3 rubic cubes in a row.
the subwoffer makes the sound much better.
the L & R speakers are good sound quality, but not great.
the Ipod adapter is a little funky when you plug it in, it sort of fast forwards your song, and displays some interface message.
you start the song over and it's fine. otherwise it plays great.
good value for the money, good for a small room or kids, but if you want really good sound, or have a big area, you may want something different.
