If you want a stereo for a bedroom or a studio apartment, if you're interested in the best sound you can find in a sound system marked "micro hi-fi" at this price range, this is wonderful. It is loud enough to make cranky neighbors complain but probably not enough to make them call the police (neither have done so at my place). If you run this at full volume, there's less noise than anything over 50 watts that I've ever tested, and I tested a number of systems before I bought this one.
What this unit sacrifices power for is sound quality. JVC does not have a disreputable history of making throwaway junk in audio and video equipment, although I'm sure there are people who would disagree with this. For anyone looking to link this to a computer, the audio-in has three levels of power, which is extremely important if you need to boost quiet recordings. The Turbo Sound and HBS features are very useful, but nothing extraordinary. The bass/treble controls are Mickey-Mouse (you only have three bass and three treble settings).Read more ›
I compared this system to a couple Sony systems around $100-$120 and this system is totally worth the upgrade!
Would have expected to pay around $200 for this quality.
Only downside is that you never want to break or loose the remote because many of the buttons on the remote (programing, time set, etc.) are not on the main unit!
Quality you'd expect from JVC. I would recommend this system to a friend.
Pros: small size, iPod dock, powerful sound, price, very good design, good sound quality.
Cons: doesn't have USB entry.
Recently I bought the same micro component for use in my home studio, so I have two units, I recommend this component of Micro. I use it in my Office and home, so far has been a very good buy.
