JVC FS-7000 Mini Stereo System

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello,
I have a JVC FS-7000 Mini Stereo System.
I hooked up my Samsung Instinct Phone to the JVC through the AUX inputs.
The sound is horrible!
The same music on the CD that I downloaded from sounds great.
Well, for a mini system.
Is there anything (amp, etc...) that I can put between the phone and the JVC to boost the signal?
Or is the phone just a piece of poop.

I have an FS1000 system, and the stereo unit looks the same. The sound improves 100 times when I hook up my TC7520 DAC through optical.

EDIT: Whoops, didn't understand your question. Yeah, the phone will suck no matter what.

Bummer!
I guess I will just play CD’s.
This little system is awesome for its size, BTW.
I always get complements on the sound.

How is your JVC FS-7000 holding up? Is it still working and was it made in 1997?

Hi David, yes it is still working and sounds great, and yes I bought it brand new in 1997.

Great to hear! Do you remember how much they went for, back in the late '90s? I should be receiving my FS-7000 fairly soon. 

 

BTW, in your signature pics, do you have a some kind of conventional surveying equipment in the background, maybe a Vernier Transit?

Sorry Dave, I do not remember the price off hand. I know it wasn't cheap (250.00 maybe?).

Wow, good eye on the surveying equipment!

The surveying equipment is my dads, he was in the construction business.

When I get home tonight I will check on the manufacture.

You are going to love the JVC!

I believe I first used the JVC FS-7000, when I was teenager, in the '90s and I loved it! I also own a JVC MX-S2, from 1993, and I absolutely love it!

 

Good to hear about the surveying equipment! I'm a former surveyor, that's why I asked. biggrin.gif
