The JVC TH-S3 is the entry-level home-theater-in-a-box system in JVC's 2004 lineup. Lacking the five-disc changer and the more powerful amplification found on other models in the series, the TH-S3 features a single-disc player and an overall power rating of 312 watts (52-watt front, center, and surround speakers and a 52-watt subwoofer). To see how the TH-S3's step-up sibling performed, please refer to the TH-M505 review.
