About the size of a laptop computer, the EX-A1 is a perfect TV audio upgrade for those who prefer not to go the whole hog. It’s a top-class, yet affordable micro with the bonus of DVD. Runing 100 watts of power to the three inch mid-bass driver a (also wooden) tweeter, it sounds great and just looking at those cones makes you thirsty.
JVC says that with conventional paper cones “Sound spreads at the same speed in all directions, causing unnatural resonant points with limited frequency response. Wood cones produce few resonant points because of the grain, so frequency response is improved and sound quality is significantly enhanced.”
