JVC will forever be associated with the VHS analogue videocassette format that it invented, but it realises that we consumers are demanding DVD recorders nowadays.
Jvc has a reputation for producing goodlooking home cinema kit, and its DR-M10 recorder is certainly more eye-catching than some of the dull, silver boxes in this test. At £300, it's also one of the more expensive - but is this reflected in its performance?
The QP-F70AL stands out from the crowd in his test by virtue of being a 6.1 system. The extra rear centre speaker should create a more natural surround experience, and place overhead effects directly behind the listening area.
Another flexible recording one-box system, JVC's packaged separates setup incorporates both DVD-RAM and DVD-R/RW recording - two of the three recording formats.
