JBL Cinema SB400

 

A good-looking, extremely capable soundbar solution, the JBL is a fine alternative to TV speakers

Classy design ; Three HDMI inputs ; Bluetooth connectivity ; Open, spacious sound ; Taut bass ; Good dynamics

Poor remote control ; Possible lip-sync issue with some TVs ; Large subwoofer

JBL Cinema SB400 soundbar

 

The JBL Cinema SB400 is a fine sounding soundbar with convenient home theatre-style functionality and Bluetooth, marred by some unfortunate operational issues.

Quality sound, including good bass ; Offers full system switching capabilities ; Supports Dolby Digital 5.1

Miscalibration between LFE and bass levels ; Lag in subwoofer starting with new tracks

What a pity about those operational issues. Because, aside from them, the JBL Cinema SB400 is not just a good soundbar and subwoofer combo, but a HDMI and Bluetooth-enabled home theatre in a box.
