”The JBL Bar 5.0 fits a tremendous amount of value into its compact design.”’Trusted Reviews’ – Recommended

JBL MultiBeam technology for a surround sound experience

JBL’s MultiBeam technology places five speakers within a single soundbar, creating a 5-channel surround sound experience – from a single soundbar. Speakers mounted at both ends of the soundbar project and reflect the sound behind you, giving you the feeling of being immersed.

Virtual Dolby Atmos
JBL’s MultiBeam technology is further optimised by Virtual Dolby Atmos processing. This uses the MultiBeam speakers to create the impression of ‘height’ speakers. With the effect of sound from above, Virtual Dolby Atmos makes you feel more part of the environment – be it a jungle or sports stadium.

Dedicated centre channel for the clearest dialogue
Housing a dedicated centre speaker channel, the JBL Bar 5 delivers perfect vocal clarity. Having a dedicated centre speaker makes dialogue easier to follow and gives the whole movie a more natural sound – it’s like the actors are there in the room with you!

Built-in subwoofer
Featuring four, built-in passive bass cones, the Bar 5.0 has the power it needs to drive basslines. The built-in drivers help build the tension in action movies and make your music sound richer and more dynamic.

Google Chromecast, AirPlay 2 and Bluetooth, for the complete networking experience
As well as bringing your TV to life, the Bar 5.0 also offers a wide range of music streaming options. Built-in Google Chromecast lets you stream Hi-Res Audio music from your chosen device. With Google Play Music, YouTube Music, Amazon Music HD, Spotify, TIDAL, Deezer, Qobuz and many others available, you’ll never be without music. Alternatively, this JBL soundbar is compatible with Apple AirPlay 2 and Bluetooth – covering your every streaming music requirement.

Works with Alexa and Google Assistant
Compatible (not built-in) with Amazon and Google voice assistants, the JBL Bar 5.0 integrates with your voice-operated household. It’s also compatible with Amazon’s MRM (Multi-Room Music) protocol, meaning you can use the speaker as part of an integrated multi-room Alexa system.

HDMI with 4K pass-through
Meeting HDCP 2.2 standards, this JBL soundbar is the perfect match for your UHD 4K TV and source. By using the enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC) HDMI, it's possible to both get the sound from and the images to your TV with just a single HDMI lead.

Works with your TV remote control
This JBL soundbar is designed to work with many of today's top TV remote controls, so you can use your existing TV remote control for both TV and soundbar.

Feel part of the movie, with the JBL Bar 5.0.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW - Superb Sound! Plugged-in and tested with Dolby Atmos demo and some Dolby Atmos enabled movies... Wow! The soundscape is superb. The virtual effect is incredible. Fills my 3.5m x 6m front room perfectly. It sounds like I have speakers all around the room. My favourite music is Liquid Drum n Bass (vocal, harmonic and bassy). The MultiBeam creates a 'well balanced' sound with Bass set to level 4 (Bass level 5 also works well without distortion but the sound to me is more balanced at 4). I'm so happy :) :) :) Thank you JBL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb value and sound for reasonable cost. Very Satisfied, and pleasantly surprised. For a soundbar without a separate Sub-woofer the JBL BAR 5.0 does an excellent job. If BIG, room shaking bass sounds are your thing… you’ll want something with a separate sub-woofer though. But the BAR 5.0 does provide a very strong Bass soundtrack with its built in Sub’s, especially after a couple of days running in. Overall the sound is very rewarding. It’s enveloping, and especially, it’s easy to listen to. Not harsh and tiring on the ears… a big plus I think. Dialog is also really good, due to having a central channel I believe. There is no dialog enhancement feature on this unit, but it is far superior to my previous 2.1 soundbar WITH a dialog feature. My wife is no longer constantly adjusting the volume UP to hear what’s being said in quiet sections, (especially on films and NETFLIX, etc.) and then having to turn it down back DOWN for the normal level of sound. A BIG win for the BAR 5.0! Airplay 2 playback is also really easy to use and rewarding for music, as would be chrome-cast I’m sure. It’s not hifi separates quality, but better than expected and great for general listening. Basic set up was a doddle with HDMI ARC, and the additional HDMI input on the bar for the BlueRay player is just what was needed. I did struggle a bit with the Airplay 2 setup due to my reading of the full manual instructions. It has Chromecast and Alexa integration too. Setting up the MULTIBEAM calibration was simple and worked as per the manual. The little Remote control works fine and is actually quite nice in use. Also, all the basics worked straight away on my Panasonic OLED TV remote. Easy. The ATMOS surround over-head sound is a bit underwhelming, but Game of Thrones on BlueRay DVD gives a Very engaging listening experience. As does NETFLIX 4K playback. Also our room isn’t an ideal shape, others may get be better 'effects'. In Summary: Very good sound quality, technically up to date, and easy to setup/use. Very good value in its price range. Very satisfied! I do recommend printing the Manual from the JBL website.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful sounding, thrilling when withotrues sourc Happy to be the first to leave a review for the JBL 5.0 Multibeam Soundbar. Having upgraded from the bar 2.0 the difference is night and day, the 5.0 is a powerful well built soundbar that will elevate your TV and especially 4K movies to a new level! Pairing with my 4K blu ray player using the HDMI in port was super easy, the multibeam set up was very simple and effective. Watching a 4K UHD Blu Ray disc (Game of Thrones Season 1) the clarity of the sound was thrilling, the 'Virtual Atmos " feature really did give the effect of sound uplifting. Regular TV watching is also enhanced by the front speaker for clearer dialogue. Music sounds punchy with the bass not overpowering at the default setting of 3 /5 I'm very happy with my purchase and would definitely recommend.
