STAMFORD, CT – January 7, 2021 – The JBL Bar 5.0 MultiBeamTM, the latest addition to the popular JBL Bar Series, 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.  

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.
