The best soundbar under 500 pounds. If you are on a market for a soundbar and you can get your hands on this jbl sb400, don’t miss out. Forget about all sony, samsung or lg products, jbl is a differenf world. This model was nominated as the best soundbar under 500 pounds in uk and if you are lucky you can get it for 250 pounds. This is a real stuff, amazing sound and clear bass.

Fantastic sound, simple to set-up. Unpacked the two boxes, plugged it in, used the optical cable to connect to my tv, worked first time, and sounded fantastic. On screen display does not work if you use the optical cable, so it is difficult to tell if you have the bass boost on and to track the volume as you change it. I would not let that put you off as the sound, especially for the price, is great. I am filling quite a large sitting room and you can make the doors shake, (when the missus is out ).

Jbl sb400 – everything you could ask for. What a fantastic soundbar and sub woofer. I bought this to replace my 10 year old samsung dvd/amp and speaker system. Had a little bit of trouble getting them paired (wifi) but we got there. But when connected to the soundbar. I actually bought this in preston, i even got my car park charge back too. So in the end it was only £247. What a great piece of equipment for that money.

This system is an epic sound bar system it has everything you want from this type of system and moregreat bassbluetoothsimulated surround soundconnectivity has everything you would want and moreall the functions on the back of the sub. Learns your remote signal so you don’t have to use a little one that comes with it. Seems very well madelooks greatonly problemsthe wall mount is not great on the back of the unitthe optical cable that comes with it is not great (buy one)the sub is quite bigi have had mine since january 2013 and i have not had any problems with it. I love watching films and this has improved my viewing experience i strongly recommend this product. I did a lot of research before buying the product and almost went with the yamaha unit but the jbl 400 sounded and looked better.

Netflix has never sounded so good.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • JBL SB400 : Great Sound Bar
  • Great Sound, Good Value
  • Great sound but poor reliability

Really highlighted how poor my tv speakers are, easy set up and sounds and looks great.

Fantatsic productgreat sound. I did quite alot of investigation into sound bars. Decided on this after reading other reviews. . And i am very happy i did. The sound is fantatsic and for £290 i paid from amazon it is great value. The only reason it is not a 5* review is that the control is very small and flimsy, which is a shame. You will be using it alot and it needs to be bigger and more solid.

Great sound but poor reliability. When it works this sound bar is great. Great bass and much clearer than the tv speakers. Unfortunately, as with many of the other reviewers here our unit broke just outside the warranty period after 2. 5 years of light use (3-4 hours a week). Identical symptoms to the other reports – all the buttons and bluetooth pairing function as normal but no sound. Luckily we bought the sb400 from richer sounds and they were able to repair it for only £48 (multicare. Uk, the official harmon repair centre, wanted £70)we only paid £200 in a sale to buy our sb400 so i’m still quite happy but had i paid the original rrp of £499 i would be furious. If you still decide to get this sound bar – get an extended warranty or expect to pay extra every couple of years for a repair.

Great soundbar, very powerful. The remote control isn’t great, however i programmed my sky remote to work with the soundbar so rarely use the standard remote. I did initially have lip-sync problems with my sony tv, however i read that changing the settings to ‘gaming’ would fix the problem and it did. Bought from richer sounds for £250.

Awesome piece of kit,5 minutes to set up and away you go. Don’t waste your money on other brands when this gives you what you need in your home, perfect sound,perfect picture. 3 device’s connected by hdmi and 1 cable connected to tv,piece of piss.

I am buying this to replace the 10 year old 5. I can’t say it can out perform the proper surround system but it is not bad at all. Bass is sufficient and i found the sound quality is better when wall mounted.

Read the other reviews for it’s technical excellence, they are all correct. I was so pleased with it i went out and bought a new lg 42″ 100hz tv to complement it. Here’s the funny bit; in a well known top-of-the-range hifi store buying the tv i asked to listen to the sonos sound bar with sub woofer (£1200) and the bose cinemate 15 sound bar (£550) when i said to the sales man that i’d just bought the jbl sb400 and i thought it just as good he looked around to make sure nobody could hear and said “yes, i’ve got one too and i agree but we don’t tell the customers here that” ha ha. I paid £285 for mine as the packaging had been opened. I also own a bose solo 15 soundstage (£400) which i now use as a speaker for my laptop :-)don’t be put off by the gripes about the remote, it is crap but it takes 30 seconds to program any remote to control all it’s functions so do that and put the supplied remote away in a draw.
