JBL Bar 5.1

 

Transforming novelty plus powerful sound. JBL Bar 5.1.

Tidy soundbar setup ; Powerful bass ; 5.1 surround option ; Wireless battery-powered rear speakers

Voice levels can be difficult ; Quiet listening performance lacking

A high-priced sound bar, or a low-priced surround sound system. The JBL Bar 5.1 is a do-it-all solution ideal for those who want minimal clutter but maximum audio effect.

Music feels flat ; Plastic design ; Gap between mids and bass

For movie lovers with a shortage of space, the JBL offers a seriously appealing prospect: totally wireless surround sound from a soundbar. The sound palette that it offers isn’t as rich as some of its competitors, but its transforming surround sound...

JBL Bar 9.1 Review

 

Powerful audio with thunderous bass depth ; Dolby Atmos drivers ; Wireless rear channel speakers ; Easy setup

Expensive ; Large ; Could use more precise EQ controls

The JBL Bar 9.1 soundbar might be expensive, but it delivers powerful, thunderous audio with detachable rear channels for an immersive listening experience.
