Technologically experienced and audiophile

By PMRugel

from Durango, CO, United States

Comments about JBL Cinema Home Theater Soundbar System:

I've had this for about 6 months now and absolutely love it. Run this with HDMI out of my computer to a samsung 4k and it sounds incredible. Hits lows much better than I was expecting and the bass boost does not distort like others do.

AMAZING!!!!!

By Gia1259

from Mesa, AZ, United States

Comments about JBL Cinema Home Theater Soundbar System:

I've now had this sound bar for 6 months and I love it. Super easy set up and the sound quality is amazing. I have the ability to feel like I'm in a movie theater when I turn subwoofer on or just Bluetooth and listen to music while I clean. It really is a great system I've had no issues with anything.

Buyer Beware

By dredfield

from Omaha, NE, United States

Comments about JBL Cinema Home Theater Soundbar System:

I guess I was one of the lucky ones, it worked for 2 years before it stopped. I will never purchase another JBL product again. This is an ongoing problem with JBL, scroll down the list of reviews and you will come upon people like me with the same problem. When purchasing another sound system the clerk at the store said they were hearing the same thing.

Very disappointed

By Henry85

from Laredo, TX, United States

Comments about JBL Cinema Home Theater Soundbar System:

I bought the SB400 about a year ago. It was working fine but then these strange popping noises started to show up. At first I thought it was the TV who sends these noises but then all of the available inputs on this device started to do it also. Suddenly while watching a movie the sound bar made this loud popping sound and nothing else worked well since. Now it sounds like you are watching a Beta Max of VHS movie with that horrible sound quality. Totally disappointed because it is an expensive piece of tech and ONLY 1 YEAR WORKING it is very frustrating. If warranties does not cover this poor but very expensive item; I'll never purchase something from JBL again.

Great sounding bar, technical issues loom

By Andrew Johnson

from Phoenix, AZ, United States

Comments about JBL Cinema Home Theater Soundbar System:

I bought this sound bar last week. The setup was quick and easy. Once I had all of my connections established, I turned on the sound bar. I paired the subwoofer to the sound bar and then started playing music through it. It sounds awesome! After listening to a few songs and played a few games with it, I noticed two main issues. First, when there's a peak of silence in audio (let's say when there's no audio for 1+ seconds, or when you first start playing a song), nothing comes out of the sound bar until a half a second later (it's not a delay, but more of a mute hold). Secondly, in relation to the first problem, the subwoofer comes on almost a half a second after the sound comes through. I basically miss the full audio from 0-1 seconds. That is my biggest and annoying gripe with this soundbar. However, if you plan on having constant sound (with no audio silence anywhere), it works really well. I really wish there was a wired subwoofer connection from the sound bar, because having everything wireless is not ideal, especially with how much this unit costs.
