Summary: GREAT SOUND !! I can now listen to my Netflix movies or DVD's in movie house style sound ! Buy it you will love the sound, I can even balance the sound with the TV speakers if I want to (RCA 32# LCD flat screen)
Summary: This JVC Sound Bar was a replacement. The first one only worked for a few minutes before it failed. Audio was via digital optical cable from our bedroom TV. It really improved the sound, compared to the internal speakers of the LG HDTV. It was suspended about 2 inches below the TV with room-air free to circulate all around. It was used about 12-15 hours per week. Benign environment. Less than 1,500 hours of use. It's out of warranty -- now it's junk! Buyer beware!
Summary: I bought this to use with an LG TV, but the optical audio signal put out by the TV was not readable by the soundbar. The vendor was a little sluggish about the return, but eventually accepted it. Advice: avoid mixing brands on components for digital TV products. Neither LG nor JVC customer support were helpful. The two products were just incompatible.
Lots of input options, loud, clear sound, and IR passthrough - Good stuff.

Summary: Nice loud sound, much louder than with the original TV speakers. The sound bar is tall enough that it covers my IR receiver on my TV, but this isn't a problem, because the sounbar comes with an IR 'repeater' that essentially allows the remote to pass through the sound bar. Good product, easy to install, with all of the possible audio jacks on the back. The built-in FM radio is a nice touch, as well.
Summary: We purchased this because our 46 in television sound was hard to hear at times since the speakers were in the back. My husband has a hard time hearing the audio from the television but with this sound bar, he hears all well.
Summary: A sound bar for my flat screen has been a low priority item on my wish list for some time now. We've relied on our stereo for good movie sound, but for daily tv viewing, we defaulted to the tv's poor speakers. Sound bar reviews on lower cost systems can be scary reading, but the JVC TH-BC1 user reviews are impressively positive. So after a price drop (on top of an already affordable price), I thought it a good time to give it a try. I am glad I did.
