Didn't know 2.2 was another way of writing 2.0...

$100 without rebate will be a fair deal.

Very tempting, but not many reviews. Anyone want to compare it to similar systems in the $50-$100 price range?

for $100, this is a very solid soundbase and having hdmi arc is great. not a fan of rebates though. this will smoke 2.0 soundbars for under $100 for sure as it packs solid bass for music and movies. not quite as good as the vizio 38 2.1 system w/sub that has been around $100 recently though, but of course this is a completely different form factor. i use one of these jbl 2.2 bases in a spare bedroom with a vizio smart tv connected via hdmi arc and it sounds great in a medium sized room.

i'm looking for speakers for an htpc (Liva X2 connected to a spare 24" monitor with no sound outputs) in the bedroom. i haven't really been able to find decent, compact and reasonably priced 2.0 multinedia speakers. how would these compare to say Bose Companion 2 multimedia speakers (connected via 3.5mm jack to a bookshelf style htpc) vs using one of these soundbases connnected via bluetooth?

Hard to compare, but I'd say the JBL would fill a smaller room with fuller sound, while the Bose are somewhat near field monitors (would sound best sitting in front of them)... The Bose have a pair of 2.5" drivers and about 20 watts of power... The JBL has a pair of 2.5" drivers and a pair of 3.5" woofers with 240 watts of power...

More than sound, the Bose are manually controlled only, so if you're not right next to them and want to change the volume you need to get up to do so... The JBL comes with a remote, and also can be programmed to learn your TV remote signals for volume control...

Kinda apples and oranges... I think you need to pick what better suits your needs...
