About a month ago I started the research process for upgrading my entertainment system in my living room. I was operating on a 37" Sony tub television, Panasonic surround sound and Panasonic DVD player. Functioning was sufficient on all pieces, but I wanted to enhance my space and experience with a system overhaul. This surround sound system caught my eye as it functions as a soundbar (which I really wanted mounted below my television) and still offers my the 5.1 surround sound speakers wirelessly.

I was frustrated and the few people that had reviewed this product and became slightly leary that it was not going to meet my needs as no one seemed to be buying it. I cannot express how wrong I was. I finished my hookup on Saturday (everything for my television and soundbar have been wired through the wall using the Datacomm recessed wall plates) and it looks fantastic. The soundbar is currently mounted on the wall below the television which I like as I am using my new 55" Vizio as my HDMI point and its optical audio out (Toslink) to the soundbar.

Sound is fantastic on all three settings (Dolby Digital, PCM, and Dolby ProLogic II). The fade to mute function is interesting as I have not seen this on a surround unit before. Wireless functionality seems flawless in its transmission (I currently have my subwoofer under an end table and the wireless receiver mounted behind my couch on the wall - JVC customer support was fantastic answering questions about link of sight and distance from soundbar!).

Shortcomings are hard to come by on this unit, but I feel I should touch on them to provide a thorough review. I do not like that when using the dimmer function on the soundbar the red indicator lights do not dim with the blue power light.

I have been waiting for a system like this with REAL surround capability. The issue with the Vizio system is that is didn't have a rear channel, the issue with the Sony you had to spend and extra 200-300 to get extra speakers, wireless somethings to patch it all together and it wasn't "native" to the system. When the JVC TH-BA3 came out, I KNEW I wanted it and it would be perfect for my small house.

and boy was I right! I had this thing set up under my 42 inch 240Mhz Vizio (sorry crappy Vizio soundbar) in less than 1 hour), synched with the sub and the wireless and ready to go. I watched "The Patriot" and was surprised as the sound. Then I turned on some reagular TV.... that is where I got the REAL surprise! My wife and I watched the show Psych and during a scene where everyone was in the police station, the surround sound came alive. It was like we were in the middle of the station! You could hear EVERYTHING! Typewriters, people shuffling paper, people walking around. It was crazy! But the BEST part was YOU COULD STILL HEAR THE MAIN CHARACTERS TALKING!

My advice:

Do the setup and set the speakers up properly (measure your distances and enter them in as recommended).
If you cable provider and blue ray outputs to PCM mode .... USE IT!!! This receiver will take uncommpressed PCM (which is the "real" sound before all of the encoding and re-coding"). Set you bluray to the highest bit-rate (like an mp3 song 192 vs 90)... you will get rain drops instead of just "rain" all around you.... It is awesome.

GREAT PRODUCT!

I wanted to upgrade my TV's standard sound and decide a soundbar was the simplest and easiest answer. I didn't want to settle for the simulated 5.1 sound that most soundbars produce. No mater how good they are you figure they can't beat two rear speakers. I've had the unit for over six months now and couldn't be happier. The sounds is great and the systems for the most part performs flawlessly. Every once in a while there's a litttle static pop sound in the rears but it happens rarely and I'm overall impressed by the wireless performance. As others have mentioned it's not going to rock the house walls down but for small to medium sized rooms it certainly delivers a great surround sound experience. Scenes in movies comes alive, PS3 and Xbox games sound great.

Some people argue that the rear speakers defeat the purpose of what a soundbar is supposed to do, simulate 5.1 without the rear speakers but this gives you the real thing in a very very compact design. I'm really surprised that the unit has not gotten more attention.

I purchased this system in October. At first I was impressed with it until the volume just began to intermittently take off on its own and increase the volume beyond the maximum volume that the system is supposed to have. I am unable to contact JVC through it's clumsy site. I have read on the net that other consumers have experienced this same issue and that JVC says that they have never heard of it.

In addition, I am having a difficult time obtaining the warranty information for this item, either on-line or in the packaging instructions

When it is behaving, the sound is OK but the surround sound is marginal at best. And beware that the system is not truly wireless. The surround speakers must be hard-wired to a receiver.
