Well I heard JVC had just released a monster that's worth about 1000 watts. Now that's freakin crazy. Panasonic claims that it has also one thousand, but I think they are lying. I went to Best Buy and listened to some of my cd's, well....it didn't sound like it has exactly "1000 watts" it felt like it has 400 watts and when u push the volume all the way to the MAX, the subwoofer kinda distorts. For some reason I think JVC has a really 1000 watts and it is much better looking than Panasonic one. The thing about JVC that I am not so sure about is that it has kinda smallish speakers, yet each one of the satelite speaker produces about 140 watts and subwoofer has a 300 watts. My 1 question is: is it possible for the system such as TH-M505 to have really 1000 watts? My 2nd question: can you connect Xbox or PS2 to this JVC TH-M505? If anyone has any of these answers that would be a lot of help. Thanks guys!
