About the Russound TVA2.1
Give your TV's sound a big boost
Give your TV's sound a big boost
As flat-panel TVs have gotten thinner, so has the sound coming from their built-in speakers. In fact, they often sound just downright anemic. If this bugs you as much as it does us, here's an easy way to bypass those dull on-board speakers and upgrade your sound: Russound's TVA2.1 television amplifier.
Mounted discreetly behind your TV, this compact stereo amp delivers 30 watts per channel. It will easily power a pair of bookshelf or in-wall speakers for richer, fuller sound with your movies and TV shows. Versatile analog and digital audio inputs provide compatibility with almost any television. And if you're looking for even more impact, the TVA2.1's subwoofer output lets you add an optional powered sub for deep, room-shaking bass.
To help minimize coffee table clutter, Russound also included IR learning capability that allows your TV or cable box's remote to seamlessly control the amp's volume.
