The rest of the time the sound is great.

JAMES ECKERSON, Amazon

  • Summary: The signal range claims are not true. The two components in my case are at the same elevation,22' apart, and have 1 inside sheet rock wall and 1 open doorway between them. If someone under 140 pounds walks between then, there is a momentary loss of sound. The rest of the time the sound is great.

So far so good.

  • Summary: We just had hardwoods put in. There is no way to run speaker wire to the rear channels anymore without carpet. I got this just last night and installed it using the wire I had wired under the carpet. Plug and play on channel 1 and Option 1 for non-JBL speakers. It worked flawlessly.

Way overpriced

Martin Lange, Amazon
8 January 2014
  • Summary: I would expect more performance from the unit that sells for over $300. While it is working, it's not able to drive my speakers very loud. Also, I noticed that my wireless LAN is being affected by the transmitter.

Static

Rita Munster, Amazon
4 November 2013
  • Summary: After a lot of fiddling with the channel controls, I was finally able to synchronize the wireless receiver with the JBL transmitter. However, the sound drops out completely every 10 minutes. In addition, every few minutes, there is a popping noise and some static.

Would not connect

Brian the Fish, Amazon
31 October 2013
  • Summary: I pretty much tried everything I can think of but I'm unable to sync the receiver unit with the transmitter. I did change all of the channels. Also, I placed both units within 20 feet. Still, no audio at the receiver.

Range less than advertised

Jason Lampe, Amazon
24 October 2013
  • Summary: I live in a townhouse and don't have a lot of other electronic gadgets around. However, I can only get around 30 feet of range before the audio cuts out. If I walk between the line of sight then I will get dropouts.
