It’s one of those products that’ll make you envious of Japanese consumers. JVC’s new wall mountable speaker system is just over an inch thick.
At only 31mm thick, JVC’s SP-FT speakers may be the perfect visual complement to your flat panel television. Wall mountable and very slick looking, the SP-FT speakers will come in both black and white models. The audio quality may not be the best, and with a range of 110Hz to 23kHz you’ll almost certainly need a little low end support, but these 300mm high by 186mm wide speakers add some style at an unexpectedly reasonable price.
The speakers alone are cool, but JVC added an amplifier – also 300mm high, 186mm wide and 31mm thick – to hang with them. The AX-FT will be colored to match the SP-FT speakers in black or white and features Dolby Digital , DTS, AAC and Linear PCM support. This four channel amplifier sports three optical inputs, one analog, and has an output of 80 watts.
Both the speakers and amplifier release in Japan this fall, with black models hitting about a month before white. The SP-FT speakers will sell for the equivalent of about $225 US and the amplifier for around $270.
