JBL Bar 5.1 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply amazing! I bought the JBL 5.1 after weeks of searching for the best buy. I was also unwavering on a 10 inch sub. That led me to JBL 3.1. After looking at the 3.1 I also looked at the 5.1 and loved the idea of the removable, wireless speaks for real theater sound. I could not be any happier! The sound clarity, bass and mids are exceptional! Could not be happier! If you are thinking about the 5.1 just do it, you wont be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crisp sound Bought it a week ago from ANISUMA TRADERS IN NAIROBI and having the best cinematic sound experience right in my living room. The price is quite fair compared to other wireless brands sold locally.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best compact 5.1 system Having just moved to a new apartment, I was looking for a compact 5.1 system which did not take too much space. I had the JBL Spot 2.1 system ages ago and it always amazed me by the sound quality, so I did not hesitate twice when I saw that the JBL Bar 5.1 expanded into a proper 5.1 surround system. Movie nights are amazing, playback from the 4K TV is a breeze and the sound quality truly reflects the build quality of this product. I love how easy it is to pair the speakers and the truly wireless capabilities of the Left and Right surround speakers (which also connect & sync at a push of a button!) The bass module is on point and offers deep true bass without muffling the quality. Excellent product from an outstanding company! Thank you so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Soundbar for Movies I bought the JBL Bar 5.1 specially for movies about 2 weeks ago . The 5.1 soundbar is awesome for movies but only acceptable for playing music.

Do the dimensions stated for the soundbar include the detachable rear speakers?

Asked by: Johnuk
Ren at customer service is incorrect. The bar is 33" without surround sound speakers attached. The bar is 45" with the surround speakers attached. I got mine in the mail today and measured.

Can the rear speakers be constantly connected to the power outlet rather than being put back to the main soundbar for recharging? I noticed some mini USB sockets in the rear speakers but wanted to double check. Thank you!

Asked by: marioT86
Doesn't look like Danny H is correct. The manual clearly says this about the remote speakers: • As an option, each wireless surround speaker can charge via the USB connector, located on the bottom of the speaker

Hi, when I paired my soundbar with my TV using ARC, the sound bar automatically turns to mute and cannot be canceled by either TV or soundbar's remote. I can reboot the TV or switch the source of the soundbar to solve the problem. Is it normal?

Asked by: Michael_X
Hello, I have exactly the same problem. It’s always on mute, I have to power it off and on, and switch tv audio output settings all the time !!

Does it have Dolby Vision Pass-Through ?

Asked by: lwonder
The JBL Bar 5.1 does not support Dolby vision passthrough but it supports HDCP 2.2 4K.

Hi, I paired my soundbar with my TV using ARC., this way I can also use my tv'S remote controller for the sound bar. WHen I turn off my tv, the soundbar goes on standby mode. Is there a way to to make it turn off completely when turning off tv? Thanks!

Asked by: kikiturc
Stand by is the only option i guess... there is no option turn it off completely (at least based on the manual). Please correct me if i'm wrong.

Does the JBL Bar 5.1 properly pass-thru and/or process Dolby Vision? And just to confirm this bar will NOT pass--thru and/or process Atmos and/or DTS-X. Thank you

Asked by: tyjon31
Correct, The JBL Bar 5.1 Supports HDR/HDR10/Dolby Vision pass-through as the HDMi Ports in the bar are HDCP 2.2 which should be compatible with it. Unfortunately, Dolby Atmos and DTS-x are not supported .

Do you have USB audio input? and how can you connect it to my computer?

Asked by: Juan Gabriel
The Bar 3.1 owner's manual states USB audio is supported! It is mp3 and wav only (page 9) with instructions on how to use it (page 6). The Bar 5.1 owner's manual is not out at the time of me writing this, but I would hope the upgraded model has at least the same setup. Would have been better with flac support over wav support though. No one is ripping to USB in an uncompressed format when flac gives the same quality for quite a bit less size. It is also open-source so anyone can use it for their products. Not sure why JBL didn't include it as a usable format.
