Back in the days, when it came to improving the way your new HDTV sounds, you aren’t left with much choice but to buy additional expensive speakers that do little to improve the sound. However, with the advancement in technology, especially with sound systems, people are now offered a variety of choices regarding the sound quality while watching TV. Far from the bulky audio systems of the yesteryears, these new compact systems are more affordable and easier on the eyes too. A great example is the JBL SB200.
One of the smaller soundbars under $300 in the market today, this compact audio system only measures about 35.8” in length, 4.57” in height and 4.6” in depth. This makes it suitable for televisions from 32” and above. Unlike other box-looking sound bars, this beauty features soft curved edges with a sleek black exterior that blends well with modern house interiors. This gem also is also suitable for those living in small spaces since it can either be placed on a television table or mounted on the wall.
The SB200 is created to give you optimal sound delivery with its impressive specifications. Despite its compact size, it is fully equipped with dual 3.5” woofers, two 1” tweeters, as well as a very good amplifiers and a bass port, giving you a superb sound rendering in a surround listening environment. It is easy to install and comes with a wireless Bluetooth connectivity, which is definitely a plus for audiophiles who want to fill their rooms with rich, clear sound. It also removes the need of unwanted additional remote controls with its ability to adapt to your television remote controls. Connections are not a problem either for this compact beauty. It comes equipped with an analog stereo minijack output and an optical digital audio output.
Coming from a household name like JBL, this audio gem’s sound performance makes it worth looking at. Boasting of the latest HARMAN Display Sound Technology, this soundbar can offer you a superb, surround-type listening experience from only two channels. It also is equipped with a built-in Dolby Digital Decoding, and together with the dual premium-cone woofers and two dome tweeters, this sound system is designed to give you a powerful full-range sound delivery right within your living room.
In a nutshell, this speaker offers you an impressive surround sound delivery with clear, crisp highs and deep, rich bass for that immersive listening experience, without compromising the cost and the space.
