”It might take up a lot of space on your TV unit, but the combination of a great speaker setup, a powerful subwoofer and JBL MultiBeam technology provide an exquisite experience.” ’Tech Advisor’ - Recommended.

JBL MultiBeam technology for a 5.1 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. Whether it’s the sounds of a jungle, a sports stadium or a city scene, JBL’s MultiBeam technology takes you to the heart of the action.

Dedicated centre channel for the clearest dialogue
Housing a dedicated centre speaker channel, the JBL Bar 5.1 Surround 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!

Separate sub for powerful JBL sound
As you'd expect from one of the most highly respected names in the studio business, sound quality is a high priority. For the full dynamic grunt demanded by action movies, the JBL Bar 5.1 Surround uses a separate subwoofer. With its mighty 10-inch woofer, this JBL’s punch is leagues ahead of a typical TV. The wireless connection means you’re free to place the subwoofer anywhere in the room – connection cable-free.

Google Chromecast, AirPlay 2 and Bluetooth, for the complete networking experience
As well as bringing your TV to life, the Bar 5.1 Surround 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 5.1 Surround 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 Audio Return Channel (ARC) 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.

Surround yourself in sound, not speakers, with the JBL Bar 5.1 Surround.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome price, awesome cinema sound I researched for ages, needed an optical connection along with a decent wireless sub. So we got both with this. The sound is awesome since JBL uses its tech for all all cinemas and HK is the parent brand. Amazing sound in our cinema room and the front display is helpful unlike others where the display is on top. The sounds is crisp, the bass is deep when it needs to be. Recommend? Defo. A keeper, hope it lasts the test of time!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great sound but not user friendly Sounds great and really.easy to set up and connect with Google home app. My issue is that it turns on whenever it senses a signal from ANY source. Great it turns on for Chromecast and Bluetooth when connected. But I don't want it coming on when I'm watching the news or just normal TV. It's like it has a mind of its own!!! I thought I could live with it just turning it off every time I turned on the TV. But then when we unpause the TV, it turned on anyway. It would be great to be able to turn it on WHEN I WANT TO. I get it will turn on with CEC but it even turns on through optical connection. So I have to always turn the output off on the TV just to stop it coming on. Also don't like how you have to cycle through the bass settings. So if I'm listening and think I want to turn it down. I have to go right up to MAX and nearly blow the sub just to get back to min.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this set of speakers I bought them three weeks ago, and they are great. I love the sound, the bass is loud and crisp, good and clear sound from the soundbar too. For what I paid for them it was a great purchase. All of those having too big expectations are unhappy with them but there is no reason to not like these speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Sound! JBL BAR 5.1 SURROUND I bought this just arrived Tuesday 22nd Feb 22. It is really very Good! I tested it with Saving private Ryan where the first scene battle at the beach. Subwoofer was superbly loud and also the bar that you can still understand what they were saying. I love it! Even playing with GT sports at PS4.
