JVC has released a pair of soundbars I think most average home theater junkies will be excited about.
One of the new systems (TH-BA3) features wireless surround speakers and a wireless subwoofer, a first in the industry, which should make setup very easy for consumers . This system boasts a 280 watt 5.1 surround system with Dolby Digital, DTS and Dolby ProLogic II decoding.
