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.

With Bluetooth and HDMI inputs make this a proper connection hub.

JBL SB400

 

Sound quality is excellent and power output is huge, the value for money is very high

Cheap materials used in construction, such as the flimsy little remote control and unnecessarily large and boxy construction of the sub woofer.

sound quality is great for the price

remote - easy to lose and missing a bluetooth button so you have to press it on the main unit. Also missing controls for adjusting bass etc.
