Our take on the JBL Cinema SB 400

by Woody Sherman
JBL

Sound bar speakers: room-filling sound with less clutter

Add big sound to your TV without a roomful of speakers. Sound bars require minimal space and wiring, and their sleek designs complement today's flat-panel TVs. Most sound bars have their own built-in amplification, so you won't need to use a home theater receiver. Some models use advanced surround processing and carefully aimed speaker drivers to simulate the effects of a full home theater audio system.

A screen legend

If you pay attention to the world of movies, you know that great theater sound and the JBL nameplate have gone together for a very long time. And while your TV room doesn't present the same challenges as the local multiplex, it can feature floor-shaking realism and crystal clear dialogue when you add the Cinema SB 400 sound bar/wireless subwoofer system.

Power and pathways

The Cinema SB 400 starts with a total of 220 system watts — 100 of those reserved for the wireless subwoofer. In combination with JBL's Display Surround processing, this power generates an enveloping surround-like sweet spot that will draw you into the action on-screen. And that sound can come from several sources. The Cinema SB 400 has three HDMI inputs, so you can connect Blu-ray players, streaming video players like an Apple® TV, or cable/satellite boxes, and use the sound bar's circuitry to select your program source. An optical digital input allows you to connect TVs that don't feature the latest HDMI connections with 2-way audio capabilities, and an analog stereo minijack gives you even more flexibility in accommodating other sound sources.

    Features

    Overview: The JBL Cinema SB400 is a 2.1ch speaker system with an active soundbar + wireless powered sub system that will dramatically improve the sound reproduction of your flat-panel TV and connected AV components. It also lets you wirelessly stream music from your Bluetooth-enabled devices. Designed to complement 40" and larger flat-panel televisions, the JBL Cinema SB400 is ideal for people who want premium sound quality with impressive bass performance in a nonintrusive, easy-to-install solution. The SB400 Soundbar system features exclusive Harman Display Surround, built-in Dolby Digital decoding, as well as HDMI, optical, and auxiliary inputs. The soundbar speaker can be mounted on a wall or placed on a shelf.

    Active Soundbar Speaker: The SB400's active soundbar speaker houses two 1" dome tweeters and four 2.25" premium cone woofers powered by a 120-Watt amplifier. Its built-in amplification simplifies system connections and operation.

    Wireless Powered Sub: The Cinema SB400's wireless powered sub features a down-firing 8" woofer in a bass reflex enclosure (front-firing port) with a built-in 100-watt amplifier that deliver impactful bass. And because the system is wireless, it puts no unsightly cables between the soundbar and subwoofer. The wireless powered sub offer independent level control (min/max), low-pass crossover adjustment (40-200Hz) and phase switch (0°/180°)-

    Harman Display Surround + Dolby Digital Decoding: Drawing from Harman expertise in movie theater audio, the Cinema SB400 lets you add cinema sound without adding multiple speakers. Employing proprietary Harman Display Surround technology, it creates a virtual surround-sound experience for multiple listeners from a single soundbar. The Cinema SB400 can also decode Dolby Digital soundtracks, which eliminates conversion stages that reduce sound quality.

    Bass Boost: JBL is known for exceptional bass response, and the Cinema SB400 lets you increase low-frequency performance at the touch of a button on the included remote. The added bass impact is ideal for movie soundtracks.

    HDMI (v1.4) Connectivity: With three HDMI inputs, the Cinema SB400 provides convenient connection for multiple HDMI source components. It also includes one HDMI output with Audio Return Channel (ARC), which sends the TV sound back to the soundbar. This setup simplifies switching and makes the system easier to use.

    Analog + Digital Audio Inputs: The Cinema SB400 features both analog (minijack) & digital (optical) inputs to connect your flat-panel TV and a Blu-ray/DVD player, or satellite/cable box to the system.

    Bluetooth Technology: The Cinema SB400 features built-in Bluetooth A2DP, which allows you to wirelessly stream audio from your Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablet, Blackberry, laptop/computer, or other Bluetooth-enabled device to the JBL soundbar speaker system.

    Remote Control: The Cinema SB400 comes with a credit card-sized IR remote. However, this soundbar speaker can also "learn" the IR (infrared) volume-control code of your existing TV remote control, taking away the need to keep track of yet another remote for controlling the volume on the soundbar.

    Mounting Options: You can place the Cinema SB400's soundbar speaker on a shelf or tabletop, or wall-mount it with the included bracket. A dual-position equalization feature optimizes the soundbar's performance for any location. So you can position it where you choose without compromising sound quality. Because the SB400's powered subwoofer is wireless, you can position it any where in the room (within 25').

    Quick impressions from the Lab

    Comment by Cooper Advisor,

    For impressive performance at a great price, look no further!

    Written by Cooper, Advisor, on 2/18/2014 11:20:00 AM

    During the course of the year, we advisors attend product presentations and hands-on trainings on almost a weekly basis. In the JBL training session, this sound bar has stood out among the others. With its HDMI switching and Bluetooth streaming capabilities, I experienced this system delivering outstanding performance for movies and music. And I liked the fact that the setup only requires a single HDMI cable to be run to the television. Pretty convenient!

    The system's wireless subwoofer can be dialed up or down depending on how you like your bass response and according to what you are watching on television. My impression? This product is great for just about anyone's needs!

    Best system for the money

    Written By Anonymous, Bridgewater, VA on Friday, October 03, 2014
     
    Live in an older home where a full home theater system just does not work. Have had 0 issues. Great sound. Harmon surround mode and extra base make a lot of difference when watching movies. Sub is more than sufficient. If you buy a mid level system it should be this one.

    JBL SB 400 with lots of bass

    Written By Anonymous, Houston on Saturday, September 20, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    The JBL has good strong bass which you can always control the desired amount. Vocals on the other hand is weak. Would have been better if there is a setting for clear voice when you just want to hear more vocals in shows. The surround modes doesn't do much to help boost vocals. It only creates the sound making it seems like it's coming from the front of the sound bar or around it. Other sound bars I've read seems to have a "clear voice" setting. Even my samsung LED tv has a clear voice setting that works really well. Overall, it's a good solid built system.
    Pros:
    Good bass
    Cons:
    Vocals not as clear

    Great sound in a very small package.

    Written By Bryan, Carrollton, TX on Sunday, August 17, 2014
     
    So far so good. I was at a local shop to listen to a Sony setup that was about $100 less, and I stumbled upon this one. I listened to the Sony at first, and I thought the subwoofer was turned off. Turns out, it was working... just not very well. So I'm fumbling through the available Bluetooth connections and I selected the SB400. I hit play, and the JBL roared. I actually laughed out loud at how the bass rattled the shelves all the sound bars were on.

    So I buy one, and get it home. Within the minutes I had the speaker bar hooked up with the supplied Optical cable, and paired up the sub. I don't have an HDMI ARC output since my Bravia is about 7 years old. We tested the TV output for a while which, was was great... then we played music via Bluetooth. The bar was clear, and the bass was rattling our medicine cabinet in a room upstairs on the other side of the house.

    For the price, it's a great speaker setup. If you live in an apartment, you're going to tick off your neighbors though. :)
    Pros:
    Great bass. Great sound. Easy to connect.
    Cons:
    Seriously JBL... add a Bluetooth button to the remote so everyone will stop complaining.

    Great Sounbar

    Written By 74noonan, Charlottesville VA on Friday, August 15, 2014
     
    This soundbar has been great, good lows and clean voices even during loud movie scenes. If you are not wall mounting this bar I would suggest either right angle HDMI cables or ones with a braided cover on the cord portion to give them more flexibility. There is not a lot of space and the HDMI ports face downwards.
    Pros:
    Great Sound, Great Look, Great Low End
    Cons:
    Do not cut off the power to the subwoofer if you have a wireless device near it, just use the subwoofer off option on the remote. Maybe there is another factor I couldn't figure out but when I had the sub powered off I lost 40% of my wireless connectivity on my blu ray player, causing streaming video dropouts. When it is plugged in I have full connectivity. Maybe the bluetooth keeps hopping around the 2.4 Ghz band and can't pair up, causing interference? Not sure, I just know what works for m

    Outstanding

    Written By Wes, Charlotte, NC on Sunday, August 03, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I had originally purchased the Sony CT660 based on the lower cost and good reviews, but returned it after only a few days of sampling it, the sound quality just wasn't there. Within minutes of listening to the JBL i was clear why it's worth the extra money. There are probably other systems as good or better at this higher price point however i couldn't find any that had HDMI in/out which is what i needed for my setup. The sound quality and build quality are outstanding on this system. Clear, full, evenly balanced sound with no fuss. There are no real adjustment settings on this system, a music mode and movie mode... most of the time the difference between them is imperceptible, move is intended to have a slightly wider sound stage to simulate surround. It sounds great on either though and i tend to leave it on music. The bass boost tends to over-drive it too much, but once you set the cut-off and level on the sub itself you'll never need to mess with it again. None of these sound bar systems are going to replace real speakers with large drivers and proper spacing in your room, but for everyday use for TV and bluetooth music this system is perfect. There is also a Harmon Kardon speaker system at this same price point that is identical and would also be recommended.
    Pros:
    Sound quality and build quality. Bluetooth works great.
    Cons:
    Odd that switching to bluetooth is not on the remote (as others have noted).

    Irritated

    Written By Kingjate, Los Altos, CA on Friday, June 13, 2014
     
    Can't get sound to play through sound bar using HDMI ARC. Tech support where I purchased this said it was a bad arc port but I exchanged it and still can't get it to work. Could it be another bad arc port? The retail place where I bought this gave me trouble when returning the first so I'm just going to deal with it. Really could be the TV but I've sat through there tech support and they say it's the sound bar. Who knows. I regret buying it.

    Good Purchase

    Written By ScottW, Sioux Falls, SD on Wednesday, April 30, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I previously had purchased the Klipsch HD Theater SB3 and ended up having multiple issues with it. After returning the Klipsch I talked to the Crutchfield "experts" and they recommended the JBL. I have never owned jbl products but thought I may as well give it a shot. Not only was the soundbar cheaper, but it sounded just as good as the Klipsch when the klipsch functioned properly. It also has Bluetooth capabilities and hdmi connections which were nice. Overall I am very pleased with the unit as it sounds great and was affordable at the same time offering more in connections and capability.
    Pros:
    Great sound even at overly loud levels. Easy connections w ARC hdmi option. Great value for performance.
    Cons:
    Hdmi connections are oddly positioned making it difficult for thicker cables.

    Sounds Great but...

    Written By Anonymous, Mpls, MN on Friday, April 18, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    This thing sounds great. Very pleased with the sound with music and movies. Reading other reviews I didn't think much of the Bluetooth not something you could switch from the remote but do admit it is disappointing that you can't switch to Bluetooth. I didn't see any other reviews that mentioned it can't be controlled by a DirecTV remote, so if this is a deal breaker for you, let it be known you can't control the sound bar with you DirecTV remote. I bought this for a couple reasons, the reviews it received were mainly positive and I have an old plasma TV that only has 1 HDMI input and no outputs of any kind. So my plan was to use this to switch between my DVR and Blu-ray player but had some issues getting it all to work; it has worked itself out and is working good now. Bottom line is this thing sounds great and works well. I listen to all types of music and have to say the at response from the sub is very impressive.
    Pros:
    Looks and sounds great. Bass level can be adjusted.
    Cons:
    Can't be programmed to work with a DirecTV remote.

    Good sound

    Written By Baxtah, Maine on Thursday, April 17, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Good sound. Its not a receiver amp and 7.1 separate speaker system, but its a whole lot better than the TV alone. The sub Woofer is a must, I forgot how it ads to the scare factory in horror movies.
    Pros:
    Size alone. If your buying a sound bar for its sound quality you will be disappointed.
    Cons:
    The one cable system to TV system... Had to install the whole system twice. My cables were to short as a result. Do not expect to run the one cable to just the tv. and stereo, bluray and cable box to the sound bar... doesn't work, all kinds of problems.

    Pros:

    None. Concerned a young grandchild might put a small toy or other item into the port on the subwoofer.

    Nice little system

    Written By Steve, Massanutten on Thursday, March 06, 2014
     
    We opted for this system since we have a big open space with tall ceiling and not a lot of options for rear or side mounted speakers. We've had it a month and love it so far. The sub is easy to control and can crank up the bass effects for movies and down for regular TV if you want. The guys at the Harrisonburg store did a great job as usual so recommend coming in person if you can!
    Pros:
    Easy set up, and great sound for movies, nice to have the 4 options for HDMI imputs
    Cons:
    Only two "equalizer" type settings for movie and music. really small remote control (my universal remote will only operate the volume, so I have to use the remote or on the speaker to turn it off)

    JBL SB400 "pop" solved

    Written By GS, Alex, VA on Saturday, January 25, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Initially I was very unhappy with JBL's SB400. My set-up is DirecTV HD/DVR receiver and ROKU to Soundbar via HDMI and HDMI Output to Samsung LCD TV. The problem was occasional loud "pops" that were unpredictable but frequent enough to make it unlistenable. It even drove my dog out of the room. I searched online for the problem and found others complaining of same issue, but no solutions. I was on the verge of sending the unit back, but I decided to change the connections. I unhooked all of the HDMI connections from the Soundbar, and routed DirecTV Receiver and Roku into LCD TV (via HDMI), then used the supplied Digital Optical Cable to connect the TV output to the Soundbar Input. PROBLEM SOLVED! No more popping and I have good quality sound. I don't know the cause of the problem, but am relieved to have figured out a workable solution.

    Solid performer

    Written By Zsp, Modesto on Tuesday, January 07, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Purchased this product as a gift for the whole family. They were not disappointed! The quality of the sound bar is amazing. Throw in the subwoofer and the system does a excellent job for the cost. It may not be able to replace the sound quality of a receiver and multiple speakers but it is a great compromise If you are looking for a wireless system for a smaller media room or you are on a buget.
    Pros:
    Bluetooth capable- play music from your iPhone right through the system.
    Cons:
    Can't think of any.

    JBL Cinema SB 400

    Written By Ted M., Lake Monticello, Virginia on Thursday, December 26, 2013
     
    A very attractive installation and generally great sound. However, I'm a little disappointed with its treble response. As I age, my high frequency hearing is diminishing. Consequently, I need additional treble to clearly understand the spoken word. I've not been able to adjust the treble level high enough. The bass can blast us out of the room but, I'd trade some of that bass response for more treble.
    Pros:
    Great bass effects and generally good sound
    Cons:

    This product was recommended to me by Crutchfield. What can I say, they were spot one! The soundbar ROCKS! It sounds great with the TV and also when streaming music with the Blue Tooth feature. I am very satisfied with this purchase! Thanks again for the help and great service Crutchfield!
    Pros:
    Great Sound, Blue Tooth feature, looks good, easy to set up
    Cons:
    None

    JBL Cinema SB 400

    Written By Don, Broadway, Va on Sunday, December 01, 2013
     
    It now sounds as if we are in a theater instead of our living room. The difference is amazing. Setup was easy. Dialogue is now more pronounced. This JBL serves our needs without the cost and clutter of a large home entertainment system.
    Pros:
    Great sound. Easy setup. High quality at a good price.
    Cons:
    None

    Annoying issues

    Written By Lee, Richmond, VA on Monday, November 25, 2013
     
    The system sounds good, not great, in my opinion. The power switch is supposed to come on automatically when an HDMI input is activated, but doesn't on my unit. Also, the remote is incredibly flimsy and cheesy, and the volume control is erratic. Would be nice to have a power indicator light on the front rather than the top of the unit, so you could see it while sitting down. Also, the HDMI ports are facing downward, so I had to buy two new HDMI cables that were more flexible at the connector so they could make the bend coming out of the ports.
    Pros:
    Decent sound---lots of volume
    Cons:
    Poor controls, design, and remote

    Great sound with a few problems

    Written By JosephK, Jacksonville, FL on Sunday, November 03, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I purchased this sound bar to replace an old "home theater system in a box." I wanted better sound quality and I liked the ability to route my Apple TV, DVR and DVD player through the bar with one HDMI to the TV. Set up was simple. However, the HDMI cables connect to inputs that point down. For table top installation, clearance makes bulky cables awkward. If you buy this sound bar and don't already have HDMI cables, buy cables with a hinge or buy a hinge adapter to account for this problem The unit, when allowed to go into standby mode on it's own, is supposed to power on automatically when the you turn on any sound input (DVR, DVD or Apple TV). However, this feature did not work. Crutchfield technical support has been very helpful and will try to resolve this issue. I will buy from Crutchfield again because they stand behind their products. I am very happy with the sound quality. It is superb.
    Pros:
    Good looking, easy set up, sound quality
    Cons:
    Poor placement of HDMI cable inputs, auto power-on feature not working.

    Nice sound bar

    Written By jmsdoc, NJ on Tuesday, October 22, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    This sound bar is certainly an improvement over my Sony TV's speakers. At first, I could not get my cable remote to control the volume nor could I get the on-screen display to work. A 10 minute call to Crutchfield Support resolved both issues. Turns out that I was misreading the setup instructions.

    My initial setup had the sub positions behind the seating area in the room. This configuration to not provide very good sound and left me wondering if I was going to send the unit back. I moved the sub along side of the TV stand and sound bar and that greatly improved the sound. This made the unit a keeper in my eyes.
    Pros:
    Good looks Synching the sub was a snap Sounds great Bluetooth allows me to stream music from my phone or tablet
    Cons:
    Setup directions too vague and not descriptive enough More functionality from the remote

    Great Product

    Written By Comowell, Salt Lake City, UT on Wednesday, October 16, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I have had the JBL SB400 installed for around a month now. Overall I am very pleased with this product. The sound quality from this system exceeded my expectations. I have the soundbar installed in a rather large room (18'x35') and I was concerned the small system would not fill the room. Although the sound output from the system is not overwhelming, it is a fantastic improvement over the tv output. I plan to buy another SB400 for a smaller TV room in by basement. If I had one complaint, it would be the soundbar does not automatically power up when it recieves an audio/video signal from the TV as indicated in the manual.
    Pros:
    Easy set-up, great sound quality for a small system.
    Cons:
    No automatic power up when the TV is turned on...must use the JBL remote.

    Dropped Ball

    Written By JCD, Texas on Saturday, October 12, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    JBL dropped the ball on what could have been a fantastic sound bar. Every aspect of this bar is great except for 2 details.

    THE GOOD:The sound quality, the connectivity, ease of use and styling are all 5 stars.

    THE BAD: If you are mounting system consists of tabs on the wall brackets and slots on the bar which is fine for wall mounting. However, if you are mounting the bar beneath a TV attatched to a full motion wall mount you must take care not to bump the bar it will fall off of the mount.

    THE UGLY: The BlueTooth is where JBL dropped the ball. There is no way to select BlueTooth from the remote, you must select this input on the sound bar. To further compound the problem, without the ability to select BlueTooth as an input from the remote, you cannot add this function to a smart remote. This is a - 3 star oversight by JBL
    Pros:
    Great sound, flexible and easy setup
    Cons:
    No remote selection of BlueTooth

    Excellent product.

    Written By JBL lover, Nashville, TN on Monday, September 09, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Great JBL sound as expected especially the base unit. I connected this speakers to Apple TV, LG flat screen, ipad, ipod, iphone, iMac to watch internet movies and to listen youtube and itune music. My iphone bluetooth has weak signal , so need to be in closer vicinity to JBL unit. no clutter in room as had with my old Sony 100wx5. Midrange is not as punching as Mackie SRM 450 ( I think it is 300-400 W per channel; apple to orange comparison I know) house speakers for my recording studio/band, but more than loud enough for the large room , 35'x35' high ceiling room when placed at the corner with base unit in the back of the room . never have to turn up the volume all the way. using as 2 channel sound only.
    Pros:
    bluetooth function. auto turn off. RF base unit. very nice base. no distortion at high volume. small size. Excellent Crutchfield service , package, delivery ; impressed. nice and clear voice and high frequency. no need for Eq, Good price.
    Cons:
    letters on the body and remote is too small and faint. need to make it bigger, brighter, even better if back lit. consider customers who use reading glasses. I have no problem using imac remote that is as small as JBL one. I have lighted LED magnifier near the unit to see any buttons on the main unit. . It will be nice if JBL produce matching side and rear speakers connected thru RF on free stands . I will be the first one to purchase them to make real surround sound system.

    I was skeptical about this product at first. Once I completed running HDMI's and easily set up Bluetooth to my iPhone, I was blown away by the sound quality. I didn't expect this product to kill my older Bose cube set up. For under 600 bucks this sound bar delivers exceptional sound. BluRay movies are cinema quality sound.
    Pros:
    Adapts to current remote! Sound- movies and steaming music are superb! Easy set up Design is classic and modern.
    Cons:
    When you're steaming music, you can't watch TV. Only drawback, but I hardly watch TV while playing tunes.

    JBL continues it's Legacy

    Written By SteveC, San Diego, CA on Friday, July 19, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I did my research on this product and was not disappointed when I powered-up for the first time. The SB 400 has all the bells and whistles (Bluetooth, wireless sub, multiple HDMI,on-screen remote settings, bass-boost) and is a very easy install, especially if you are running HDMI. All of your HDMI components plug directly into the soundbar and one HDMI out goes to your TV. Plug in your the power cords for both the soundbar and powered subwoofer, synch the two, and you are done!! It's that easy. Note: I did not use the wall-mount bracket option, so I cannot comment on that aspect. The sound is amazing for what it is. The sub woofer sounds great and has adjustable settings for the amount of bass and a crossover setting as well, for fine-tuning to your ears. You may want to experiment placing the sub in different locations of the room, as this really does affect the performance. The remote is very basic and minimalistic, but it does allow you to control all of the settings you need (volume, source, mute, power, bluetooth, bass-boost, etc.), so no points deducted for that. I did read a lot about the HDMI connectors pointing down, but it's really not an issue. I have 3 HDMI's going in and 1 going out and it sits flat and level on my media cabinet. I'm sure it depends on the type of HDMI you are running, as some are really stiff at the connector. All in all, I am very happy with this system and will recommend to anyone who is in the market. Good Luck!
    Pros:
    -Bluetooth -Easy Installation -Reasonably Priced
    Cons:
    -None yet...

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I got the SB 400 to replace another brand device for which I had been unable to get remote control to work dependably. The JBL unit has, so far, performed flawlessly. Sound quality is excellent, with the 8 inch wireless subwoofer providing good bass support but not overwhelming. (Sorry, but I do not agree that bass levels which perform internal organ massage are acceptable.) I use a programmable remote and the JBL unit has integrated nicely. Installation was very easy.
    Pros:
    Easy to install, very good sound quality.
    Cons:
    Connectors, especially HDMI point down. For table top installation, clearance makes bulky cables awkward.

    I ordered the SB 400 as a compromise with my spouse not to clutter up our living room the way I had previously had our media loft. Honestly, I was not expecting much but an upgrade to my TV speakers. Boy was I wrong!! The clarity of the soundbar and the richness of the accompanying sub are impressive. Set-up could not have been easier and the ability to stream music from other mobile devices is a huge added bonus.

    I remember the J.B. Lansing speakers from back in the day. They were very good sounding and good quality speakers. I also have a JBL system in my Avalon which sounds excellent. These are two factors that led me to purchase this unit. This is a good sounding system, not harsh at all. The wireless sub is excellent as well. Quality sound was more important than anything else to me when I was shopping for a sound bar, and I believe this is the best in this price range.

    I'm using this system in combination with a 40" Samsung 1080p (ln40c670m1f). The quality for both music and movies is excellent, with awesome base from the sub woofer and crisp tones from sound bar. The Bluetooth capability is great if streaming Pandora from iPhone. Easy set-up and would highly recommend! My last speakers were a Bose Acoustimass 5.1 (several years ago..I would not recommend that system). This compact system performs much better, for a fraction of the price.

    Great sound, great value, great product

    Written By John V, Los Angeles, CA on Tuesday, February 26, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    If you're after great connectivity options, not running cables/wires, and solid sound for a medium sized room, this is the audio solution for you. I'm always pleased with the quality of JBL products I've owned, and after comparing other similar sound bars with subs, I realized this was the one for me.

    My setup includes a Samsung 42" plasma, DirecTV DVR, Slingbox, PS3, and an Airport Express for streaming music. My priority for my configuration was ease of use, both for my wife and for guests. The JBL Cinema has a ton of connectivity options, but I want to avoid using an additional remote for the JBL so I decided to use my TV as a switcher and output the audio signal to the JBL Cinema.

    I connected all of my sources to the plasma, disabled the TV speaker, and used the optical audio out to connect to the JBL Cinema SB 400. No matter what source I'm using, the JBL Cinema carries the audio signal. I do use the AUX input to connect my Airport Express, however the JBL Cinema also has Bluetooth for computer/iPhone connectivity...in either event though, you'll still have to pick up the remote to switch sources to AUX from Optical.

    Bottom line is the JBL Cinema has great connectivity, solid range, sound that fills the room, and very easy set up. I ran the unit through the usual paces: race car movie, air combat movie, bass heavy hip hop, guitar heavy rock n' roll, and of course video games. The JBL nailed all the tests and is my sound bar of choice.
    Pros:
    Solid sound for a reasonable price point. Unboxing and setup was easy. The instructions are thorough while being uncomplicated. The unit is recommended for 46" monitors but it does not look odd in front of a 42" set if that's a concern. This unit sets up like an entry level product but sounds mid to high end. If you're looking for simple without messing with wires, head units, and an extra remote, this is the right choice.
    Cons:
    I'd go 5 stars if the sound bar could switch to the active source instead of having to use the remote or the unit's buttons. The only other con is that, the unit does not go into standby mode when not receiving a signal after 15 minutes. UPDATED 2/27: I'd like to bump the review to five stars and remove the "con" about the unit not powering down to standby mode after not using it for 10 minutes. After working with Casey in technical support I resolved that issue and this unit is worthy of a five star review.

    JBL SB 400

    Written By Michael D, Chapel Hill, NC on Tuesday, January 22, 2013
     
    Given the severe limitations of this 12 x 12 room, I was less aprehensive about the JBL's ability to reproduce movie sound than I was about its ability to double as my only option for a quality music source. I shouldn't have worried. JBL's produced a really versatile product here. I've run Pandora from both my Roku via HDMI and from my Galaxy S3 through bluetooth and I've heard no audible difference between the sources - both produce excellent sound across a wide range of musical styles. The bar sounds great even at very high volumes and the sub is solid and fully adjustable. I do wish the separation was greater but, it is a soundbar after all so, it has that built in constraint. The HDMI inputs make the soundbar an absolute breeze to set up. I'm more than satisfied - this was a great purchase!
    Pros:
    Great sound, HDMI & Bluetooth provide a lot of flexibility for use
    Cons:
    None so far

Setup was easy, sound quality is great, and with the bluetooth it's virtually always on.......when not watching tv, wirelessly listening to the playlist on my ipad3, iphone, or any other bluetooth enabled devise. Maybe the coolest feature of all is the 200watt bluetooth subwoofer. You can move the subwoofer to any spot in the room where you can plug it in and get a different audio experience. I'm a JBL speaker junkie from way back, and this product gives you big speaker sound without the separate amplifier and all those wires........
    Pros:
    Bluetooth, including the subwoofer
    Cons:
    None so far......

    I am experiencing random popping sounds from the soundbar and subwoofer and have found other postings of this complaint. Is this a connection problem (I have satellite receiver in HDMI 1, Roku in HDMI 2 and HDMI Output to TV), or a defective SB400 unit? [ Greg S  Dec 15, 2013 ]

    I have programmed my tv remote control with my JBL Cinema SB400. Why does the SB400 turn on automaticly on Standby mode when I turn on the TV? I always have to turn on manually the SB400 to be able to hear something. Is it normal? Thank you! [ David  Nov 29, 2013 ]

    • Thanks for your question Miriam. You can certainly use your first generation iPod with this unit. You will simply need to connect to the auxiliary input from the headphone jack on the iPod. [ Jeff Staff  Nov 22, 2013 ]
