JBL ANZ has just revealed to us here at STG the launch of the award-winning JBL Bar 5.0 MultiBeam, the latest addition to the popular JBL Bar Series of soundbars.
The Bar 5.0 MultiBeam delivers an incredibly spacious 3D surround sound experience with the first-ever combination of Virtual Dolby Atmos and JBL’s proprietary beamforming technology – MultiBeam.
Built for simplicity, this compact all-in-one soundbar is designed to fit every living space, offering a unique listening experience for watching movies, streaming music and gaming.
Recognised for its sleek modern look, the JBL Bar 5.0 MultiBeam was among HARMAN’s winners in the Lifestyle Audio category of the recent 2021 Red Dot Awards. An internationally-recognized symbol of superior design, the Red Dot Awards celebrate excellence in the areas of product design, brands & communication design, and design concept. On a record-breaking night for the company, HARMAN won an incredible 44 Red Dot product design awards overall.
“The soundbar category is going from strength to strength in New Zealand, which is not surprising given that Kiwis have more and more high-quality streaming content at their fingertips,” says Michael Sherman, Senior Strategy Manager for JBL at Harman New Zealand.
“The Bar 5.0 is sleek and simple to use, helping you get the most out of your entertainment through immersive sound that propels you into the action of your favourite movies, games and sport. It’s perfect for enhancing any high-definition viewing experience,” Sherman continues.
Equipped with four passive radiators for deep and punchy bass, the Bar 5.0 produces clear, heightened and room filling JBL 3D Surround Sound, without the need for an additional subwoofer. Highlighted within the Bar 5.0 is HARMAN’s MultiBeam technology that enables users to hear and feel surround sound without needing additional surround speakers, generating an immersive listening experience.
In addition, Virtual Dolby Atmos allows the Bar 5.0 to reproduce the audio height dimensions from a movie or TV show, turning any living space into a 3D personal theater.
This all-in-one soundbar is designed for ease of use, easily integrating and works with all voice and music providers. Users can wirelessly stream music, via Multi-Room Music groups on Alexa devices, Apple Airplay 2 and Chromecast built-in, as well as Bluetooth. The JBL Bar 5.0 MultiBeam is also compatible with all iOS and Android devices.
Built with industrial elements that exhibit a modern look, the JBL Bar 5.0 MultiBeam complements the profile of even the slimmest new televisions and looks sleek and unobtrusive both wall mounted or placed on top of furniture.
The JBL Bar 5.0 MultiBeam is available now from Noel Leeming, JB HiFi, Spark, PB Tech and Heathcotes.
