”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 2 out of 5 by from Good sound, annoying feature Really good sound quality at this price, easy to use, fantastic customer service response time. Unfortunately more than 6 months after purchase mine has started scrolling a message 'CHROMECAST, AIRPLAY READY' every 60 seconds and apparently there's no fix. It's incredibly annoying and distracting to see that below the TV when the room is dark, so I've had to stick a piece of cardboard on the front of it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value Really good compact sound bar with all the basic features you would need. My only complaint would be i wish the remote had a few more buttons to make navigation of certain settings easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound bar The JBL 5.0 Bar is very good built, nice sleek design and very good clear sounds. Connecting to TV and consoles was easy, Playing music from connected devices via BT pairing was easy. Also can increase or decrease the sound to the comfort of your ears with ease using any remote available near you (TV/JBL).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good performance. I’ve only had this just over a week and my initial impression’s are generally positive. I do find that spoken words can sometimes be a bit quiet but overall performance is impressive , this was brought to replace a Sony surround system and it fills the room with sound and does produce a realistic effect when playing movies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound First time I’ve bought a sound bar, I’ve always run TV through separates before and I’m really impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for money. I bought this to replace a full surround sound system. The sound quality is great for the money. Good for films too. Very easy to set up and can be use as a bluetooth/wifi speaker. Will also connect with alexa and can be used through voice command. Fantastic for the money. Virtual Atmos is virtually non existent but wasnt expecting too much with no uprising speakers. Would recommend, a very tidy alternative to surround sound without the need for speakers everywhere and planning out speaker cable routes etc. Works straight from the box in under 5 minutes. Very impressed. Good bass without the need for a seperate subwoofer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good features Sound is good but voices not so, seem to get drowned out by music and sound effects. Would be nice if an update could change this. Also would have been nice to have more buttons on the remote for extra settings as some are quite awkward to get to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Buy A great purchase to have perfect home theater effect. The sound is crystal clear and great to enjoy
