3 weeks of usage and we are impressed with what this speaker can do. We are an Apple and Android household and while those 2 platforms compete on many levels this speaker does something no Apple product does. This is your one stop shop for a multi media experience. While products like the Sonos bar and Apple HomePod deliver "more" sound for their respective sizes, the price and features of this product are unmatched.
Chromecast, built in Android TV, Google Assistant, Multiple I/O configurations, push button pairing for the optional subwoofer? Brilliant! The remote is way better than the Apple TV's and at normal listening levels we are very pleased with the sound quality. At full tilt the sound is not as pleasant but honestly, this is not a "party" speaker so I didn't expect it remove my clothes at full volume. I would appreciate more sound controls, only Bass adjustment is present.
We own other JBL speakers and if history repeats itself this sound bar will likely receive over the air updates that improves performance and functionality. This gives me confidence in the brand.
... btw, If you're looking for a speaker the xtreme 2, forget the name it's not 2 extreme, is a fabulous sounding speaker! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
