They say the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, but it’s hard not to be envious of some of the products Japanese consumers are getting their hands on this holiday season.  Coming this November, we’ve got another thing to covet: an absolutely gorgeous 31mm thick speaker system from JVC.

Sold in pairs, the speaker sets – the SP-FT1 in black and SP-FT2 in white – are slim, flat and look fantastic.  Audio output isn’t entirely impressive, but these speakers seem more made to be seen than to be heard.  They measure 186mm wide, 300mm high and just less than 31mm deep.  The speakers themselves measure 9.5cm by 10cm, and boast a frequency from 110Hz to 23kHz.

The AX-FT1/FT2 amplifier is almost exactly the same size as the speakers, measuring 186mm wide, 300mm high and an even 31mm deep.  It features an 80w output over four channels and supports Dolby Digital as well as DTS and AAC.    The amplifier, which also comes in black and white options, offers three digital inputs, one analog input, and a subwoofer out.

These launch in Japan in mid November for around $270 for the amp and $225 for each of the speaker pairs.
