Easy to set up and operate, the JBL® Cinema BD100 proves that a home theater system doesn’t have to be complicated to be compelling. It includes a 3D Blu-ray Disc™ receiver with a built-in six-channel amplifier, a subwoofer, a center-channel speaker and four satellite speakers. We’ve voice-matched the speakers for a superior surround-sound experience and included integral color-coded wires to simplify setup. With Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio™ decoding, the Cinema BD100 delivers movie sound as the moviemakers intended. Its Dolby Pro Logic® II turns any stereo source into a full surround experience. Bluetooth® connectivity lets you stream audio wirelessly from any Bluetooth device. A front-panel USB port lets you play audio from USB sticks, while a DLNA®-compatible network connection streams content from other devices on your home network. The system even streams entertainment from the YouTube™ and Pandora® content service, among others. For over 60 years, JBL engineers have crafted the precise, naturally articulated sound found in cinemas, arenas and recording studios around the world. That legendary JBL sound now enhances your home theater experience with a complete, 5.1-channel system. The Cinema BD100 is all you need to turn your TV into a versatile home entertainment system.

What's in the box?

  • Warranty card
  • 4 satellite speakers with integral, color-coded speaker wires
  • 1 FM wire antenna
  • Quick-start guide
  • 1 Blu-ray Disc receiver
  • 1 compact subwoofer with integral, color-coded speaker wire
  • 1 voice-matched center-channel speaker with integral, color-coded speaker wire

The Cinema BD100’s four satellite speakers feature 2-1/2-inch (63.5-millimeter) full-range, magnetically shielded transducers that are voice-matched with each other and the center speaker for exceptional surround-sound performance. Despite their compact size –7 inches (180 millimeters) by 3-1/4 inches (83 millimeters)– these satellites deliver a room-filling sound.

Explosions and car chases may quicken the pulse, but dialogue tells a movie’s story. Featuring a 2-1/2-inch (63.5 millimeter) full-range, magnetically shielded transducer, the Cinema BD100’s center-channel speaker delivers dialogue with clarity so that you hear every romantic, funny or frightening word.

A subwoofer can be the difference between merely watching a movie and being immersed in it. The Cinema BD100’s subwoofer features a 5-1/4-inch (133-millimeter) transducer that produces the powerful low frequencies that give each scene realism.

The Cinema BD100 receiver complements the stunning visual clarity of movies on Blu-ray Disc with powerful bass and full-range JBL sound across 5.1 channels. It also plays DVD, DVD-R/-RW, DVD+R/+RW, CD and CD-R/-RW discs.

The Cinema BD100 receiver plays high-resolution film soundtracks in their native formats – including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio coding – so you hear the sounds that filmmakers intended.

You could settle for stereo, but why? Dolby Pro Logic II turns any stereo source, including MP3s or YouTube videos, into a full surround experience. You don’t just listen to your entertainment, you’re enveloped by it.

The Cinema BD100 is DivX Certified® to play DivX® and DivX Plus® HD (H.264/MKV) video up to 1080p. So you can enjoy high-definition video content and make the most of your flat-panel TV.

Audio Return Channel sends high-quality audio from sources that are directly connected to your TV (such as Netflix™ videos) to the Cinema BD100 receiver to give you high-quality sound through the Cinema BD100 speakers. No extra connections are required.

The Cinema BD100 lets you stream high-fidelity audio from any Bluetooth-enabled device, including smartphones and tablets. So your playlists can fill your entire room, not just your headphones.

You shouldn’t need an engineering degree to set up a home theater system. Integral color-coded speaker wires and intuitive on-screen menus make the Cinema BD100 system as easy to set up and use as it is to enjoy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Sound But Software Needs Work I am a sound engineer and use JBL often for shows so when it came to picking a new amp when my old one died they were in my top three right off. The sound is what you can expect for the price point but the part that is bugging me is the problems with the software. 1. The available decoders for audio and video are hit or miss for my collection. In example I can play one set of MP4s no problem but another set fail. Can we just get the whole set please? 2. File sorting is driving me nuts. You go and label all your files by hand so they should be read A-Z (with numbers as a secondary priority in the case of TV shows) and they still end up out of order. The system could use a way to order the files by hand in it's own menus without having to resort to play lists

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great features but sound just ok I bought this because I wanted Bluetooth connectivity to play music from my phone (or computer) and it. Does it well. Sound is mediocre, voices not very clear so it is hard to understand movie dialogue (even after playing with settings) , bass is boomy (actually turned down).

How to connect the wireless home Wifi.?

Asked by: Cindy abc
The BDS100 cannot be connected wirelessly through a wi-fi network . But it can be connected to your wi-fi router using a Cat. 5 or Cat. 5E Ethernet cable, available at any electronics store. This will let you stream content wirelessly from DLNA®-compatible devices on your local area network or one of the available on-line streaming services.

the speakers work just fine but the volume gets too low even when its turned up at 100 volume only when connected via bluetooth from any device.

Asked by: rmidha4
The volume on my source is also as high as possible. I also tried to change the source, at first i was playing via mac book, then played via iphone and also checked it with samsung, no improvement, same low volume. It was working well in the beginning but since the past few months this is a permanent problem.
