In need of a home theater upgrade? Now is the time to do so if you want to save some money in the process. JBL’s highly-rated Bar 5.1 soundbar system is on sale for a whopping 52% off, bringing its price down from $600 to just $289 — the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this system. Just be sure to pick one up quickly, as this special sale price ends in one day.
Unless you’re a serious audiophile who wants a true surround sound system, the JBL Bar 5.1 is more than enough to upgrade your home theater. Besides being seriously affordable (especially with its current discount), the soundbar system is surprisingly powerful, compact, and very easy to set up.
Even before it was discounted, the Bar 5.1 was a great deal. With a total output of 550 watts and an included 10-inch down-firing subwoofer, the system is powerful enough to give that balanced cinema sound at home. The woofer lends rumbling, full low-end and the soundbar delivers crisp, clear highs thanks to a pair of side-firing tweeters and five long-excursion full-range drivers.
These speakers in the soundbar create “virtual surround sound” by reflecting off the walls and ceiling, so you can have room-filling audio without setting up an array of tweeters all over the room. When you set up the system, the soundbar uses a built-in microphone to calibrate its sound projection according to your living room or den’s layout.
The 10-inch subwoofer, meantime, lends a powerful low-end dimension with its own built-in 300-watt amplifier. Best of all, the woofer connects to the soundbar wirelessly, meaning one less cable to deal with.
Connectivity with the JBL Bar is excellent as well. With 4K video passthrough, you can connect an HDMI cable from your video source to the soundbar and another from the soundbar to the TV without losing video quality. The soundbar also has built-in Bluetooth and WiFi, as well as Chromecast and Airplay 2 compatibility, letting you stream video wirelessly through the bar.
If you’re in need of a home theater upgrade, be sure to take advantage of this deal and pick up the surround sound JBL Bar 5.1 while it’s still heavily discounted.
