JBL Bar 5.0 MultiBeam review

 

This compact soundbar won't blow a hole in your budget

Big, full-bodied presentation ; Dolby Virtual Atmos ; Multi-room options

Could be more detailed ; Dynamic expression poor ; Slovenly sense of timing

If you have a big space to fill without a big budget, the JBL Bar 5.0 MultiBeam is up to the task

JBL Bar 5.0 MultiBeam review: The best all-in-one soundbar solution?

 

The JBL Bar 5.0 is, as the name suggests, a single box solution (no sub/separates) to enhance and boost your TV's audio. So how does it perform?

Convincingly enhances TV audio quality ; All-in-one box solution - no sub/separates taking up space ; Good musicality as a speaker ; Atmos adds extra dimensionality

Lacks true surround ; No sub/separates to later enhance setup ; Calibration/presets not obvious ; Occasional syncing issues ; Passthrough can be slow

If you're looking to enhance your TV's audio prospects and don't own a super-massive screen, this unobtrusive single box solution does a sterling job for an affordable price - with only a few minor hiccups along the way.

JBL Bar 5.0 MultiBeam review: Compact soundbar with better bass, worse controls

 

This well-featured speaker has excellent sound for movies, but dialing it in can be a challenge.

Two HDMI inputs

Controls make setup difficult

JBL Bar 5.0 Multibeam soundbar review: Add a little Dolby Atmos to your life

 

If you're looking for a small, simple single speaker to give your TV the oomph it's missing, the Dolby Atmos-capable JBL Bar 5.0 Multibeam is the answer.

Simple and easy to use ; Dolby Atmos ; AirPlay ; Chromecast

No EQ settings ; Bass can't compete with subwoofers

“This single-speaker soundbar is the easiest way to add Dolby Atmos to your TV.”

Auto-volume mode. Gets pretty loud. Bass adjustment feature.

No graphic EQ. Lacks low-bass. No dialogue enhancement feature.

The JBL Bar 5.0 is decent for mixed usage. With its room correction feature turned on, this soundbar offers a boxy sound profile out-of-the-box, which adds a little extra punch and boom to your audio. However, it struggles to reproduce a thumpy...

JBL Bar 5.0 MultiBeam review

 

The compact JBL Bar 5.0 MultiBeam soundbar delivers rooming-filling Atmos audio and good bass — but you can't make many adjustments.

Atmos support ; Auto calibration ; Impressive bass without a subwoofer

Few sound adjustments ; No app

, offer more control but lack the upfiring speakers that are essential for Atmos height, and they come with more speakers. If you’re interested in an all-in-one Atmos soundbar, the Bar 5.0 MultiBeam is definitely worth a listen — and it may be a great...
