Great Sound / Horrible Control

Hank I, Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: While I love the soundbar, it's inability to integrate with any other av device, and woefully underpowered remote makes this a silo of automation not worth the price tag.

sound droputs and popping noises over HDMI

B. Carter, Amazon
6 December 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this about a month ago and while it was working it sounded fantastic. About a week ago, I started getting dropouts and popping noises. I did some research online and see that its a known issue. I wish this was reported on all the review sites that tout this thing as the bees knees. I called JBL to see if there was a firmware or other fix in place. There is not - their "solution" was to either switch to optical from the TV or change to PCM stereo.

Perfect!

Shaun, Amazon

  • Summary: I've been searching for a solid soundbar, one that can handle TV, movies and music AND this is it. Can't say enough good things about it. The soundbar is superb and the wireless subwoofer rocks the house (make sure the room placement is correct as this makes a huge difference). Bluetooth pairs flawlessly and every time. I love the multiple HDMI inputs as this makes set up a lot easier not to mention less clutter.

Popping Sound ruined Thanksgiving football

jlipoff1, JBL
29 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I have purchased other JBL products in years past and the SB400 would get 5 stars if it not for the popping sound that happens around the 1 hour mark. Not sure if it's the signal, an over heating issue, or something else, but the point is, it ruins your TV experience which happened to me during Thanksgiving Football with the family. The design is great, and the sound is fine when not malfunctioning.

Great value for those short on space

Phantom240, JBL
17 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I purchased an SB400 to upgrade from my LG TV's lackluster speakers. It has been the best purchase I've made since I signed my mortgage papers on my first house. The sound is very rich, yet clear. The subwoofer leaves a little to be desired in volume and low end extension, but in all reality, you can't expect such a small driver to deliver the type of bass that can shake the foundation of your house. I'd say that for it's size, it is a solid performer.
