JVC audio system just 1.2in thick, offers 80W
JVC has introduced its latest home theater audio system in Japan. The 1.2-inch thick system, made up of the AX-FT amplifier and SP-FT speakers, is thin enough to be hung on a wall or stood up on its stand on a bookshelf. The amplifier is rated at 4x20W and supports both Dolby Digital and DTS surround sound formats but will also play AAC audio files.
The amp will be priced at the equivalent of about $270, while a pair of the flat speakers costs $224. The system, available in black or white, is expected to be released in Japan by the end of October. It's unknown if or when the system would be offered in North America. [via Akihabara]
