Conclusion: The JVC TH-L1 is an adequate system for first-timers, starving students and people who want a multi-faceted system but who are on strict budgets. It’s also good for smaller home theater rooms with good acoustics. The TH-L1 is easy to set up, looks decent and works consistently.
Pros: Price is hard to beat; HDMI and iPod connections; attractive looking; easy to setup
Cons: Lacks a DVD drive; unimpressive sound at high volumes; ckeap speaker construction
