HARMAN International Industries, Incorporated, announces the availability of three state-of-the-art JBL ® soundbars that bring surround-sound performance to flat-panel TVs ranging from 32 inches to more than 46 inches. The JBL Cinema SB 100, SB 200 and SB 400 offer high-quality audio for movies, gaming and music, thanks to proprietary signal processing software that simulates a surround-sound environment so viewers feel as if they were in the middle of the action. Also, an equalization switch optimizes audio performance whether the soundbar is wall-mounted or placed on a table.

Each model in the JBL Cinema series was designed to deliver a great bass performance: The SB 400 (above) includes a separate wireless subwoofer that can be placed anywhere in a room, the SB 200 features a built-in subwoofer, and the SB 100 has an RCA outlet to add a separate powered subwoofer. Each Cinema soundbar includes two integrated woofers to enhance bass, while a ‘Bass Boost’ button on the SB 100 and SB 200 optimizes low-frequency performance.

“When it comes to delivering excellent audio, today’s HDTV built-in speakers are woefully lacking. The JBL Cinema soundbars deliver audio technologies for a theater-like experience so consumers can enjoy tremendous sound with a beautiful picture,” said Sachin Lawande, executive vice president of HARMAN and co-president of HARMAN Lifestyle and Infotainment. “JBL speakers played a pioneering role in developing sound systems for movie houses, and we continue to create award-winning professional systems. With the JBL Cinema series, movie lovers will hear the truth on their big screens at home.”

The JBL Cinema SB 200 and SB 400 feature Bluetooth ® wireless, so users can upgrade their home audio performances by streaming audio content from an Apple iPhone, iPad, Android product or other Bluetooth compatible gadget.
