”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 4 out of 5 by from Great Sub, the rest sounds dubbed. Connected to my Q series Samsung TV and Virgin 360 so simple a chimpanzee could do it. Great sound but it doesn't matter how many times or different combinations of wires you use the audio lag is terrible every channel is like watching a really bad dubbed movie I've tried so many different combinations nothing seems to work such a shame I don't think it's the JBL unit I just think it's the technology

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent bass but soundbar not so good Bought this a few days ago to replace my old hi-fi setup. Initially i thought this would be reasonable compromise over a full surround sound and should be good for enhanced audio. However I was disappointed with the surround capability and use for music. The bass unit is amazing even on its lowest setting. TV sound is fine, when playing movies if you expect to be able to hear something coming in from one side and pass across to the other then the experience will be disappointing, it almost feels as though sound is coming out of one place. Playing music again not brilliant sounds as though it’s coming from one place it’s clearly not good at separating between left and right, so overall I would say having separates would be much better especially given the price. Was tempted to return and buy a separates bundle.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good idea and execution but fall short I bought this product, the building quality is good and a great idea if you don’t have much space and want to avoid cables. There is just one “automated calibration” option, sadly no option to adjust the listening position or any balance, just the bass(1-5 levels) It would do great if it had more options like treble volume, etc. The subwoofer is the best part of the kit very decent and more than enough power for any normal size living room. Sadly the subwoofer stop working after 3 days from the day of purchase, tried to find any possible solution but the unit stop working without any apparent reason; the item was returned for a refund. I would recommend this product if you’re not very picky about sound adjustments, I think is the only negative point, they simplified the system too much to make it very user friendly.
