JBL Cinema BD100 Blu-Ray 5.1 Home Theater System

Introducing the JBL® Cinema BD100. It's all you need to turn your flat panel TV into a 5.1-channel home theater system with great JBL sound. Easy to set up and operate, the Cinema BD100 is proof that a home theater system doesn't have to be complicated to be compelling.

The JBL Cinema BD100 is a complete, versatile, 5.1-channel home theater system in one box. It includes a receiver with an FM tuner and built-in amplifier, a 5-1/4-inch subwoofer, four 2-1/2-inch satellite speakers and a 2-1/2-inch center speaker. All the speakers are voice-matched for a superior surround-sound experience, and feature integral color-coded wires to simplify setup. The Cinema BD100 plays 3D Blu-ray Disc recordings, DVDs and CDs. Its Bluetooth® connectivity lets you stream audio wirelessly from any Bluetooth-enabled device. A front-panel USB port lets you play audio media from USB sticks, while its DLNA®-compatible network connection lets you stream audio content from other devices on your home network. It even streams entertainment from content services like YouTube™ and Picasa™ digital-photo organizer. One system, so many options.



  • 3D Blu-ray Disc player
  • Dolby® Digital and DTS Digital
    Surround® decoding
  • Full HD 1080p output
  • HDMI® Audio Return Channel
  • Bluetooth wireless streaming
  • Easy to set up and operate

The Cinema BD100 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 decodes high resolution film soundtracks in their native formats – including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio™ – 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, into a full surround experience. You don't just listen to your entertainment, you're enveloped by it.


The Cinema BD100 features a 5.1 speaker package with perfectly matched amplifiers. It stands apart from competitors, delivering sound that is powerful but also honest, capturing the intentions of artists and directors.


Audio Return Channel sends high-quality audio from sources that are directly connected to the TV (such as Netflix®) to the Cinema BD100 receiver to play through the system. 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 the 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.


A home theater system isn't just about movies. The Cinema BD100 enables you to stream entertainment from content sites including YouTube and Picasa services. (Note: streaming services are region-dependent.)


The Cinema BD100 lets you stream audio content from DLNA-compatible devices on your home network. This provides easy access to your audio entertainment – with audio quality that is superior to the networked devices themselves.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: Sound is cheap,
No inputs to speak of,
Long time to 'warm up'
Turns itself off if sound is off/muted for quite a while.
Over all, unit is very cheap.

Other Thoughts: Don't know why I'm surprised, unit was $200 on sale, and not worth that.
Disposable though, at that price.

3 out of 5 eggsEh...

Pros: It does surround sound. It's a blue ray player. does what I need it for.

Cons: The bass is weak. The display no longer shows anything so unless you are on the blue ray channel you don't know what level volume or what input it's on.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for the money

Pros: I have an old high end music amp from the late 70's that went bad. The combination of Audio with this DVD/Blu-Ray looked interesting. For movie watching it's nice. Fairly easy to use.

Cons: Speaker wires to short for a larger room of 13x17 foot, needed extension wire for rear surround speakers.
Sound is not probably the greatest, would probably be better in a smaller room, nor does it have a lot of settings to chose from, but for the money it's still pretty good.

Other Thoughts: I have RCA composite cassette player, a composite phonograph player, composite CD player, and even an old composite 8-track cassette player. I just plugged all those devises into a 4-way RCA Audio/video Controller, and used the single RCA audio inputs in the back to hook to, and I can still enjoy the sound from all these old devises using this device as the amp in the AUX setting.

5 out of 5 eggsReply to Ron C's comment.

Pros: N/A - See other thoughts below.

Cons: N/A - See other thoughts below.

Other Thoughts: (This is a question to Ron C in reference to his comment that he had posted here.)

Ron C:

Are you absolutely, positively sure that this player will NOT play out any type of video media through it's (YELLOW) video composite output connector? I find that very hard to believe especially after reading the user manual that I had downloaded from JBL's website. Please reassess your analysis, confirm this, and reply back.

Thank you.

4 out of 5 eggsA nice system for my room

Pros: Great sound for bluray movies
Can connect any bluetooth devices
Has a decent media streaming like youtube and pandora and even fm radio
Oh and when you turn this on, it will automatically turn on your tv and change the channel

Cons: PC and bluetooth output only supports 2.1 with subwoofer.
Bluetooth is somewhat buggy.

Other Thoughts: I use this not only for bluray movies but also as my pc speakers, bluetooth stereo for my phone, and sometimes youtube but it doesnt quite replace my google chromecast. I cant really complain for the price of $150.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat system for the price.

Pros: Easy to set up and very LOUD. Looks great with my set up and tv stand. Very elegant.

Cons: Could use a little bit more bass from the subwoofer, but it's enough for me. others might want more.

2 out of 5 eggsDon't buy if you need HDMI-CEC

Pros: Good sound quality for the price
Internet services work well and are fairly reliable
Good Bluetooth range

Cons: Missing remote
Horrible customer service
HDMI-CEC not compatible with Sharp Aquos

I purchased this unit on a Shell Shocker deal about two weeks ago at a really good price point. When I received it several days later, there was no remote in the box (one other reviewer had the same problem). I contacted JBL customer service which is in India and not only did I have a difficult time understanding the representative, his response was to send an e-mail to the JBL warehouse in USA requesting a remote. About a week later, and after prodding several times, JBL informed be there were no remotes available. JBL customer service did although offer to exchange the entire unit shipping prepaid.

I got the replacement unit about a week later and yes in fact there was a remote in the box. Setup was fairly easy and straightforward. Internet streaming services all work well and are reliable.

The main problem I have now is getting the CEC-HDMI service to work with my Sharp Aquos TV. It turns off the JBL Cinema BD-100 but will not turn it on when the TV commands. So I have to work it out with a universal remote, something the CEC-HDMI is supposed to take care of. I was able to control my prior sound system using the ARC of my TV and all worked well. Another call to JBL customer service is in order.

Other Thoughts: If you don't need to interface with other HDMI devices and use Consumer Electronics Control (CEC), then this may be a good sound system for you if you can get it at the right price point. Otherwise, get used to fussing with a bunch of remote controls.

2 out of 5 eggsBelow average products...

Pros: None

Cons: Extremely picky with tv's does not detect my vizio 3D tv as a 3D display. The tv works fine with a PS3... ARC does not work with the Vizio TV..

Sound coming from its not very good and the sub can be barely heard.

Save the money and get something else.
