Engadget: We know, life’s tough. You want to buy the latest ultraslim HDTV, but find that your home theater speakers will look monstrously bulky sitting alongside it. JVC wouldn’t want to cause you such headaches, which is why it’s trotted out the above pair of 31mm thin speaker satelittes — known as the SP-FT1 in black and SP-FT2 in their white garb — and the AX-FT amplifier squeezed in between them.
While you should probably not expect Telos 5000-like output, the amp will deliver 80W of total output over 4 independent channels, and has support for Dolby Digital, DTS and AAC formats.
Prices are expected to be around ¥24,000 (€178) for the amp and ¥20,000 (€149) for the speakers when their black iterations hit Japan later this month, with the willowy white option showing up in November.
