This page is intended to demonstrate the incredible value of our 6 Year Supercare. Under recent legislation, we are obliged to point out that you obviously do not need to purchase an extended warranty at the same time you purchase your electrical goods and are entitled to shop around. We have been encouraging our customers to do just that for years because, not only are our prices significantly cheaper than our competitors, but just look at what else we include:

Free loan machine (Subject to availability. Only if taken back to store)
Should you encounter a problem, just ask and you'll be provided with a unit to ensure you're not without music whilst your equipment is being fixed.

Like for like machine if unit is unrepairable
If, for any reason, we are unable to repair your unit, we'll replace it. Naturally, models do change so, while we can't guarantee that it will be the same model, we do guarantee that it will have equivalent specifications.

Free routine service / Maintenance checks
have your unit serviced as often as you wish, free of charge, during the 6 year period. (Normally excluded from extended guarantees).

45 day cooling off period
If you're not happy with our 6 Year Supercare package just ask for a full refund - no questions asked. After 45 days, providing no claim has been made, you can also terminate the agreement and receive a pro-rata refund.

If you use the policy in the 6 years, you'll have saved yourself tens and perhaps hundreds of pounds. If you don't use it... IT WON'T COST YOU A THING!*

* Simply return your unused Supercare policy within one month of the expiration date, and we'll refund the price of your warranty.

Get a big sound from your TV with one of the most compact soundbars available - the JBL Boost.

Harman Display Surround for immersive sound

The JBL Boost might be one of the most compact soundbars available but this doesn't mean that it sounds small. In fact, thanks to Harman Display Surround technology, the Boost sounds amazingly immersive for such a small speaker. With a reach and depth of sound that few, if any, TVs can match, the Boost finally gives your big screen TV the sound to match.

Powerful JBL sound
JBL speakers and a Dual Bass Port design give the Boost a sound that truly lives up to its name. Even without a subwoofer, the bass is deep and powerful and, at the other end, the treble is every bit as crisp and precise as you'd expect from this leading speaker brand.

Wireless Bluetooth connection
As well as improving the sound of your TV, the Boost is also great with music. With wireless Bluetooth connection for up to three smartphones or tablets you can take it in turns to play your choice of music. As well as playing the music stored on your phone, Bluetooth is also a perfect way of playing back your favourite streaming services, such as Spotify or Apple Music.

Super-compact size
At just 376mm wide, the Boost is one of the narrowest soundbars around. At around half the width of a typical soundbar this makes the Boost perfect for matching with smaller TVs or fitting into tight cabinet spaces, some of which have a limit of 500mm or less. Smooth curves and a top quality finish make this speaker even sleeker.

JBL Connect
Connect multiple JBL Connect enabled speakers together and you've got yourself instant music for a house party, with music wherever you choose - indoors or out if you use the JBL Xtreme.

Give your TV and music the lift they're crying out for, with the JBL Boost.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well worth it This is a very good product get a lot for your money it is a very Good quality speaker only thing is could do with a bit more bass but it sounds a lot better than your tv unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact plug 'n play audio A simple plug 'n play unit used with a desktop computer that fits under the 24" monitor - great JBL sound and well placed controlls on top. Optical input as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to set up and use. Little adjustment available but sounds great for its size. Other reviews sum this up. It was very easy to carry compared to some. Very easy to set up (plug in an optical cable and the power supply). Takes up little space, as it is about 15" long and does not require a separate Sub woofer. Plenty of power for a smallish room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great VFM Wanted a sound boost determined by the size. Fits snugly on the stand not obtrusive. For the size, the sound is excellent Recommended by the excellent Richer Sounds employee Only criticism is the tiny remote control

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Budget tv boost speaker Small unobtrusive, solid feeling, easy to set up from line in or optical from tv, also Bluetooth for music radio from phone tablets.. it is not close to sonos or Bose in sound quality but a marked and pleasent improvement on basic stereo tv sound..... just leave tv sound on zero and use the jbl boost.. bases appear for the first time....if you like it maybe next time ask richer sounds for the next level, true 5 speaker surround. And use the jbl to play your music radio in another room.. the jbl boost won't ever be binned.. it's versatile and at under £100 good value

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has made a great deal of difference to our viewing enjoyment. This product has definitely made a difference to our viewing enjoyment and we no longer have to suffer programmes produced by the mumble brigade. Once set up it was easy to operate. My only criticism is that the instructions were not clear as where the 3.5 jack was supposed to go, it actually fitted in the headphone point on the TV. Clarity was obviously a problem as I had to resort to obtaining the information from JLB web-site. Graphical instructions may save money but very often are not clear.
