JBL has just announced the latest addition to its popular Bar Series, the JBL Bar 5.0 MultiBeam, which promises to deliver a spacious 3D surround sound experience with the first-ever combination of Virtual Dolby Atmos and JBL’s proprietary beam-forming MultiBeam technology.
The JBL Bar 5.0 is equipped with four passive radiators for deep and punchy bass, and produces clear, heightened and room-filling JBL 3D Surround Sound, without the need for an additional subwoofer. It fully supports Alexa devices, Apple Airplay 2, and Google Chromecast.
Built-in MultiBeam technology enables users to hear and feel surround sound without needing additional surround speakers, generating an immersive listening experience. Additionally, Virtual Dolby Atmos allows the Bar 5.0 to reproduce the audio height dimensions from a movie or TV show for a 3D cinematic experience.
“Built with industrial elements that exhibit a sleek, modern look, the JBL Bar 5.0 MultiBeam is a welcome addition to anyone’s household,” said Dave Rogers, President, HARMAN Lifestyle Audio. “Alongside an upgraded compact design and added technological features, this soundbar rounds out the JBL Bar Series, bringing consumers an added layer of innovation and ease of use.”
The JBL Bar 5.0 will be available in Spring 2021 for US $399.95 through select retailers.
