Powerful sound. True 5.1. Feel sorry for the neighbors.
It might not have a huge range of features and adjustability settings, but it delivers on what the majority of consumers such as myself would want out of a soundbar, to deliver rich and powerful sound that has simplicity in its features and design, with the added versatility of being true surround.
If you want rich and thumping bass, crisp vocals, and the unbelievable versatility of this setup, this thing hits the sweet spot.
This bad boy has literally impressed everyone Ive shown.
I bought this Soundbar to go with my great big TV, base is fantastic I honestly would hate to be the people living below in my apartment! I like the sound the only thing I find is that Music option doesn’t sound that great, I usually have it on Movie to have the good base and sound together! Definitely not a sound bar if you want to play music it’s definitely a movie sound bar! Anyway it’s still great, I love the detachable speakers!
A true wireless soundbar
I have used a 5.1 AV unit with cables for some time and in the new house we are in, the ability to run cables in walls or roof (flat roof extension) was going to be quite difficult. I looked at Samsung options but again the rear speakers required power and a box that would need to be put somewhere. JBL seemed to be the only soundbar provider who has overcome this. The setup was quite easy, mounting the speaker brackets on the wall is easy so you can pull them down to charge. We have used the speakers even in other rooms of the house to play mus...ic, so they become a portable option. I even found that they have a magnet in them so you can (if game) attach them to a metal object. Been using them outside even! There are some issues I have with the unit, it is not perfect but also this could be the way I have it currently configured so still playing with options. Pros: -great sound and bass and actual wireless -remote has options for surround speaker levels and bass -thus far the battery in wireless speakers seems to be 8+ hours, but time will tell -arc support for control of TV/PS4 -Bluetooth support

Superb quality and stylish
The JBL bar 5.1 is very exquisite to look at and the materials used are good quality. I like the wireless subwoofer but I like the most is the removable surround satellite speakers that you put on a stand or wall mount. It’s performance is spectacular when you watch movies with 5.1 channel. The setup is straightforward and the connectivity are great (hdmi, aux and Bluetooth). Overall despite the price tag it’s all worth it!
