JBL Bar 5.1 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST OF THE BEST I am happy who buy this sound bar because is very simple, small, best in sound quality and we haven't any camble in my living room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Theater like experience I was initially looking for something with Chromecast and Alexa, but this is for the bedroom and secondly could not find a quality soundbar. Then I realized I would rarely use that function since there are speakers in the bathroom, living room etc to do that.This bar will play music from your phone or attached USB or HDMI source. But the main criteria is to have great sound coming out of the TV. This unit performs beyond expectations and sounds as good as a 7.2 speaker system. It helped mounting the Soundbar above the TV and not below to get the best output and the detachable Surround speakers at the same height and the calibrated the speakers. Makes watching TV on a 60 inch screen enjoyable. If you want a true Surround Speakers experience, and don't want to mess with wires I have found nothing better. Moving the magnetic surround speakers from the mount back to the bar for charging is easy. Above all, it's a well designed unit that looks as beautiful as it sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing My husband wanted a Bose system, but I did some reviews and got him this for Christmas. It is so crystal clear. The subwoofer fools me sometimes. I think something is outside the house but its just the low tones coming thru that sound like real life. My husband is very pleased with it as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound Awsome sound. Easy hook up. One only thing wish it had a tad more mids and highs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thundering BASS I bought this product last week and I have turned on the Dallas Cowboys game and you could hear everything so crisp. With my previous system I couldn't hear the intricate little background sounds like I can with this system. The bass is extremely loud and it makes my entire house shake. I love bass so this system suits me perfectly. Music is clear and it is easy to control the system through the remote. I would highly recommend this if you are an avid movie watcher or love playing your music loud. The sub is probably a good 40 pounds so that right there shows the quality of the product.

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.

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

Asked by: juangabritorri
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.

Does this support casting/pairing and Spotify/similar app supports?

Asked by: Bala1987
The JBL Bar series does not offer internet connection, therefore, Wi-Fi audio streaming will not work (Google Cast, Spotify Connect). For wireless audio streaming, the JBL Bar 5.1 offers Bluetooth connection.

Are the batteries replacable in the surround speakers? Since they don’t have the power cord, eventually when the battery life goes bad we may need to replace them. It would have been awesome if they included optional power cord for convinience.

Asked by: Krishna Susarla
Unfortunately the JBL Bar 5.1 surround speakers has a built-in battery, If you encounter problems with your Bar 5.1 . Please submit a case request at https://www.jbl.com/support-contact.html and the Customer Service Team will be more than happy to assist you.

Does this system connect to a JBL Charge 3 or any of the bluetooth speakers?

Asked by: jschles
The JBL Bar 5.1 does not have the Connect feature so it cannot connect to charge 3 and other speakers.
