Very solid 5.1.2 soundbar by JBL
The Bar 700 system combines an impressive soundbar with a pair wireless satellite speakers that actually disconnect from the soundbar, and a wireless bass unit to create a solid 5.1.2 surround sound system.

Amazingly convenient soundbar
This product is a wonderful addition to our family room and convenient enough to be moved outside to our patio for family movie nights and to watch the big games with the neighbors. Detachable portable wireless rear speakers are perfect for quickly setting up outdoors

Really livens up an old plasma tv!
I wanted this to amp up the sound of my old plasma tv for movies or gaming. It does great for inputting from.tbe decide though the sound bar and into the TV.
If your tv is old like mine you might need an optical cable to get sound to go the other direction from the TV to the sound bar though.

The bass on this is pretty nice without being overbearing.
The rear/side channel speakers snap onto the ends of the sound bar with magnets to charge up the batteries without having to have more cables around that's a nice touch.

Wonderful Design and Medium Room Filling Sound
Got home the day this was delivered and was happy I live in a neighborhood where people leave things on your porch because big package was easily seen. It was in a well designed and the size of the package was appropriate for the size of the components inside. Opening the package was relatively easy and all items were undamaged. I removed my current soundbar to clear out the spot in front of the television in my bedroom and set it up. (I have a big full surround system in my living room area and plan to try this there later just to see if it's got enough sound and power to fill the big room but so far I've only used it in my bedroom.)

The wiring setup was very easy; basically just plug the power cords into the bar and the subwoofer and then connect your audio input. At first I had a little problems getting it to work because I was using a digital connection and the USB (I have several things connected to my TV and didn't want the HDMI cable controlling everything) and I didn't realize this was preventing the system to connect to the digital audio cable. After about 15 or 20 minutes I was able to get the television and the soundbar to communicate with each other and the issue was really just that I had to decide on either the digital audio or the USB because I could not get it to connect to digital audio with HDMI connected. I think if I'd been able to use just HDMI it would have have been super quick and easy.

One issue I had is that even after installing the app on my iPhone I could not get it to find the soundbar. I was able to easily connect it to bluetooth and even played music from my phone but I could not get the JBL app to find the soundbar. I have not tried again and it may be something that has already been corrected in the app.

After having given the wireless surround speakers a while to charge I moved them to positions to my left and right (they are clearly labeled) and easily calibrated them using the clearly marked remote. I then found a good Dolby Atmos movie on one the streaming services and turned it up. The soundbar could use just a little more mid-range because the highs and the lows from the subwoofer really dominate the sound and it lacks just a little warmth. Still, the subwoofer is really well tuned and the surrounds work extremely well and it all goes together as a solid system. The Dolby surround function of this soundbar works very well when you have them calibrated and placed as instructed. The room "comes alive" with sound and you can very clearly recognize the side and background noises as they were intended to be heard.

I have not yet tested how long the battery last on the surround speakers when they are placed out in surround mode but the battery easily lasts long enough for a two and a half hour plus movie and then they quickly recharge. I really love the way the surrounds connect to the main soundbar using magnets. It is extremely easy and the magnets basically guide them into place making it easy to do even in a dark room. The caps (which for now I'm using to keep my soundbar elevated above my speaker stand) are really quiet genius for using when you aren't charging the surrounds and they are in the surround listening position. They easily click in place and make the whole system look even better.

I also was able to play some lossless Dolby Atmos music from a streaming service using the surround speakers in place and was really pleased with the sound. It does not have the sound of a full stereo system with a receiver and full sized speakers but I do not expect a soundbar of this size to be able to put out that type of sound but even with its smaller size than a full system the sound from the Bar 700 doesn't disappoint.

Another plus to the system is that I was able to pair the system to be controlled with my AppleTV remote as well as the remote from my cable box. The system turns on and off automatically when I turn on/off the television and comes on at the volume level from when you turned off the system. This is really a nice added convenience which makes your whole system easier to operate which can be a plus because it eliminates all of those remotes laying around. You just get the system set up and then you can put the Bar 700's remote to the side.

I have not tried to really "blow the doors" off so I do not know how loud it gets but at a level of 15 or 16 there is plenty of sound to clearly hear everything in any movie from action to suspenseful drama and anything in between. This also enough volume at this level for listening to music.

My favorite things about this soundbar is the easily connecting surround speakers, how easily the system calibrates, the good kick from the subwoofer, and of course the great surround sound. It looks nice and should fit in any room without really standing out which is a plus for me.

The biggest negative for me is the lack of enough midrange warm sound (this is not a real big issue, just something that would improve the system) and that the app that the instructions tell you to install on your device does not recognize or find the system. I think the app may give the ability to tune the speaker and this may be a way to tune it for more midrange sound and this should be an easy fix.

Overall, I'm very pleased with the Bar 700. It easily exceeds the sound of anything I've used in this location for sound before. It has more room filling sound and the Dolby Surround and Dolby Atmos works great providing even more room filling sound. For someone looking for a higher end surround system for medium sized (250-300 square feet) room this works great. This system may also work in a larger room (about 400 square feet) but I've not tried it in my living room yet so I can't say.

Amazing Sound Bar
If you're trying to find a soundbar for under $1000, then the JBL Bar 700 should most definitely be at the top of your list. Ease of use and connectivity to Spotify, Apple music, Airplay, and bluetooth are seamless. The sound is crystal clear and the bass can be turned up pretty loud to shake the room. Bass settings 1-3 can be used for normal TV viewing, and 4-5 can be for listening to hip-hop or watching movies for the full effect. The detachable speakers from the side of the sound bar are perfect for an immersive surround sound feel. Our living room is 21x14 and this setup is perfect. It shakes the whole house. Outside of a neighbor noise complaint on the day of receiving the product, I have no complaints. This is a great system for under $1000 and don't let anyone dissuade you from buying this. It's very easy to setup outside of the box and even comes with mounting hardware for underneath the TV. It took roughly 10 minutes from unboxing to bumping in my house. I highly recommend this!

Probably the best sound bar I have ever used
Easily beats my Sony HTST5000. The sound quailty is amazing and fills my living room and kitchen when the rear speakers are removed. The unit sounds great as one peice and even better when the side speakers are removed. The bass balances everything perfectly and can shake the floor if all the way up. Wether you're rocking music or watching a tv this sound bar will not let you down. The portable rear speakers are also great to move closer if you are hard of hearing.

Excellent 5.1 soundbar package!
This sound 5.1 bar system is impressive.

Mounting was easy, but I would recommend other dry wall anchors than what are provided. I pulled one loose when fitting the bar to the hanging brackets. That is the one and only complaint about this system! The bar itself has nice clear sound with an average amount of mid bass. The satellite speakers provide enough surround stage to my large bedroom. The sub is a very nice upgrade compared to most sound bars. The 10" provides enough bass to hear and feel it!

The auto calibration is a nice addition since the satellites can be positioned anywhere you want, or mounted on the walls with the provided mounting equipment. The surround stage is very nice. Objects are heard clearly moving all around with nice detail.

I highly recommend this 5.1 system in this package if you are shopping for sound bars.

WOW this is next level !!
I am absolutely amazed by this setup. As soon as I got it all set up it was cinema time boom, the surround system makes you immerse in the movie, it's crisp, and gladly I don't have neighbors I can blast it! At the same time, I've paired all my devices, and it's my go-to player for music in the living room. I truly recommend this, quality and price you can't go wrong here. Best investment I've made in a while!
