STAMFORD, CT – HARMAN International Industries, Incorporated, announces two new JBL® 5.1 surround sound systems that turn any flat panel TV into a home theater experience. The new JBL Cinema 610 and 510 deliver immersive theater sound that brings movies to life at a price any home can afford.

“With JBL audio technology, there's no reason why every flat panel TV user can't enjoy home theater quality sound,” said Michael Mauser, President of HARMAN Lifestyle. “With the JBL Cinema Series 5.1 surround systems, we've packaged perfectly-balanced, deep, rich sound in a small footprint that fits in any living room.”

Both JBL Cinema systems are designed for easy, quick plug-and-play connection to any audio/video receiver using the included speaker cables. With the subwoofers' small footprint and included wall brackets for the satellite speakers, the JBL Cinema systems provide room-filling, perfectly configured sound to create the experience of a home theater, even where space is at a premium. Subwoofer volume and phase controls allow you to fine-tune your room for the best possible sound, faithfully reproducing the deep bass and crisp treble of movies and concerts. Included wall brackets and cables (three 3-meter and two 5-meter cables for the satellite speakers, and a 5-meter LFE cable for the subwoofer) save space in your room, and setup is easy.
