The release of JBL Bar 5.1 has seen the true meaning of immersive sound redefined. This product comes in a sleek, plastic framework at 1148mm clothed with a perforated mesh and a small glass display that sits under the trademark JBL logo. Its sleek design allows it to comfortably sit in front of your TV and serve as additional decor to your home.
JBL features the MultiBeam technology that allows the speakers to produce bone-shaking sound without the need for rear speakers with Dolby digital, Dolby Pro Logic II and DTS. At the top are four manual buttons for power, volume, and a source output button. On the back are three HDMI ports, one USB and AUX.
At both ends of the sound bar are detachable satellite speakers which serve as the product’s major selling point. These satellite speakers can be placed around the room for the full satisfying and immersive sound. They also have up to 10 hours usage time wirelessly and can be charged while connected to either end of the sound bar. They could easily be placed behind the couch to get that 4K surround sound feeling. It comes with a wireless subwoofer that provides floor-shaking sub-bass.
The JBL Bar 5.1 comes with Bluetooth 4.2 which allows you to connect seamlessly to mobile devices to enjoy room-rattling and ultra-clear sound when music is played on it. If you are also a movie lover then this is a must-have in your home as it is easy to set up and gives you that in-depth cinematic feel when watching your favorite movies at extremely high volumes without a reduction in sound quality. If you are one to like your satellite speaker mounted on the wall, included in the box are brackets to serve that purpose but why do that if you’d have to dislodge it overtime to charge it?
For its price range, The JBL Bar 5.1 is one of the best Ultra 4K surround sound systems out and it’s a really great choice compared to its competitors.
