Blue tooth shuts off randomly during music play
from Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
Comments about JBL Cinema SB200 Bluetooth-Enabled Soundbar:
I would give this sound a 5 star rating except for the fact that the blue tooth shuts off and goes to sleep whenever it wants during music play which is quite annoying when you have search for the remote and turn the thing back on....everything else is just perfect the sound throw is amazing and as with all jbl products well rounded warm rich quality...I just wish the bluetooth functioned like it should and not shut off randomly! I just hope there is something to do about this before I just forget using the blue tooth all together
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Awesome entry level soundbar
from Winder, GA, United States
My sons got this as a Christmas gift. It does not have a lot of bass because unlike the next level package it does not include the subwoofer. Otherwise setup and performance was painless and awesome! One negative is that it will not learn the volume signal from my DirecTV remote. The Samsung remote works, but while the DirecTV remote will control the TV it won't control the soundbar regardless of setup.
Answer to my switch-over
from San Bernardino, CA, United States
I know this product is a couple of years old, however, my wife has been dogging me for years to get rid of my 30 year old sound system (large box enclosures) and this SB200 soundbar sounded like my best option to start. I presently have MartinLogan - Dynamo 500 10" 360-Watt Powered Subwoofer and a Harman Kardon AVR 1710 A/V receiver packing 100 watts per channel (7 channels). I know over kill on the reciever but I want absolutly the best sound with no distortion and with plenty of overhead. There is no wireless theater surround sound solution yet, however, since the soundbar comes with optical audio port and an analog port this was eye opening. I used the SB200 for Center speaker from my receiver and set it for option "Surround" then I purchased two HK Omni10's and one HK Adapt and that was set up for my rear surround. Voila! It worked. The HK Adapt allows you to use wireless (not bluetooth,though it has that capability,too weak) to stream music from your iPhone or iPad through the reciever to power what ever. Want to hear the horse hairs accross the violin, the rattle/rumble of an earth quake, and the timber from a bell? This was my solution to replace 8 speakers with 4. Thank you JBL

I bought two (2) of these> 1 for my basement wall & 1 for my living room wall. The sound is AWESOME and it really does put most other brands to shame. I am so happy with my purchase, i intend to buy 2 wireless tv speakers for both upstairs bedrooms.My teenage grandchildren bluetooth their cell phones to my speakers listeniing to their music.

Clean design. Very good treble and medium bass.
from São Paulo, Brasil
I bought one month ago, to use exclusively as output for my mobile songs by bluetooth. The bluetooth initial setup was a little messy, but after it it works flawless always. The mid and high frequencies are very good, but the bass are not so good. They got a little better if you put extra bass on, but not so much. This feature is only avaiable on the remote control, and you have absolutely no feedback when yu turn it on. There's no ding-ding feedback if you turn it on/off and no led on it t show the current state. I hated this. And as the audio bass increase is not so big, sometimes you are in doubt if it's enabled or not. I also hate the both Harman and JBL Android apps, that can use your IR mobile emmiter (If your mobile has one...) to control severeal HK and JBL products, has not support for SB200. This is very weird! I have to bought US$ 7 to a dedicated pro Android IR control app, the only one I found that could control SB200.

Love my SB200
from Broken Arrow, OK, United States
I have had this for over a year now! The sound quality this this puts out is crazy amazing!!!! One complaint is the remote that comes with it is super cheap! My dad is ticked bc I did not contacted anyone but the remote seriously has not worked since about the 3rd month I had it. But I figure I can just turn it on when I'm watching my movies or listening to movies...but I am finding it to be an inconvenience now if I get a phone call or have people over so I do kinda wish I would have followed up on the little remote...but besides the cheaply made remote...you can't go wrong with the power and quality of sound you get out of this one compact bar!!
