After announcing the JBL Bar 5.1 Surround at the end of last year, JBL took advantage of CES 2020 to present its latest creation, the JBL Bar 9.1 soundbar. This new model features support for Dolby Atmos sound and support for Google Chromecast and Apple AirPlay 2 devices.
The sound bar brings 380W RMS power and 5.1 physical channels
A detail that stands out in Bar 9.1 is its modular design. The soundbar has a detachable wireless speaker at each end. This allows the user to detach and position the speakers behind him for a much more immersive sound experience.
JBL claims that these speakers can be used for up to 10 hours before it is necessary to reconnect them to the soundbar to recharge their batteries. This kind of flexibility can be attractive to many users.
The JBL Bar 9.1 is the company's first soundbar with support for Dolby Atmos sound and the system also includes a 10-inch subwoofer and four "drivers" to help spread the sound better. In total, Bar 9.1 is a sound system with 820 watts of power.
Support for Google Chromecast and Apple AirPlay 2 means that Bar 9.1 can be used as a specific sound system for streaming. In addition to Dolby Atmos sound, it also supports Dolby Vision video input and has Bluetooth connectivity.
JBL Bar 9.1 is expected to hit the market in the second quarter of 2020 at a suggested price of $ 899.95. More details on this model, including the complete specifications, will be published soon on the JBL website.
