JBL SB200 Review

Engaging Little JBL Soundbar

JBL SB200 review

The JBL sound bar has only one optical digital input and an analog 3.5-millimeter mini-jack input. And Bluetooth. The width of 35,5 inches looks prettiest when paired with a 40 to 50 inch TV.

JBL SB200 has a switch that selects between wall mount or bench placement. Setting it to bench placement compensates with a little more bass. Using the small remote control and selecting the "surround sound" mode, the timbre sounds a bit odd, despite a great sense of space, with lacking midrange which affects voices and lessen dynamics. No, ignore the surround feature!

​Although this JBL has smaller dimensions than the largest sound bars, it delivers a pretty good sound pressure in the dialogs and movies gives an entirely different feeling than from regular TV.

​It is noticeable that there is no built-in subwoofer, but it is possible to press a Bass button on the remote to get more fullness. It works fine with movies but personally I think that the bass is too pompous and unnatural for it to fit with music.

JBL SB200 engage with movies thanks to a great dynamic contrast and the ability to play really loud. Music also has a great balance in the whole tonal gamut. It lacks a bit of resolution in the treble and bass guitar feels a tad thin. But the clean midrange and impressive dynamics – even via bluetooth – make this a great buy. If you want the same sound but with more bass, you can take a look at the big brother SB400 which has a separate subwoofer.
