Soundbar - JBL SB200/230


Standard Member
Just bought this soundbar for £105 and have connected to a Samsung panel. It's my first soundbar so not 100% sure what to expect.

Connected to the TV via opical it's pretty good. However I am very disppointed when I connect my PC (non-bluetooth) to it via the analogue connection. If I play music via Youtube it's just not got any life to it - very bassy- much worse than an analogue connection to my JBL Flip which is much smaller and half the price.

Any comments would be appreciated whilst I decide whether to send it back.

thanks, T

I have this soundbar as well, and the sound seems pretty well balanced after being run in, using all inputs although I use the optical mainly. It may just be the source quality? Also make sure the 'bass boost' is not on - there's no way to tell this from looking at it, you have to listen to the output.
