Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the sound I haven't used it myself very much, but from what I heard from it, it was fantastic. The rest of the family enjoy it very much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds great. This box sounds very good and is built really nice with quality materials. It also has a sub out plug which I did not even see in the features listing, I am going to try it out as soon as I get another sub. The leds are not too bright which is a plus for me. The learning remote feature is great so I just use my same tv remote to control the volume like I did before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect soundbase I bought this a couple of weeks ago. The local store was out of stock, so I didn't get a chance to demo the product before making the purchase, but I had a good experience with previous JBL products and bit the bullet. I heard some of the competing sound base products available in the store, and I can say this one knocks the socks off all the others I heard in the same price range. Not only does the JBL produce far better sound quality, but the clarity is superb and the bass replication is spot on.

I can't find the device on Bluetooth. I tried my Android 6.x device, and my wife's iOS 9.x device, and the Cinema Base doesn't show up. Bluetooth light is flashing on device.

Can you connect to a Bose sound touch adapter to allow hifi and sound base to work simultaneously?

Asked by: Peter24
Hello! Thank you for your message. The Cinema Base comes with HMDI, Optical and Aux connections. We do not have any information about how the Bose system works. However, if the Bose system comes with the same connections as the Cinema Base has, then it should work.

Please confirm if this can be used on both 110v and 220v without additional transformer.
