JBL has just announced its first first Dolby Atmos soundbar and it's called the JBL Bar 9.1.

The entire system consists of a soundbar, two wireless satellite speakers, and a single 10-inch subwoofer.

The soundbar features four drivers, two upward-firing full-range drivers, and three 0.75-inch tweeters.

The satellite speaker features a single upward-firing full-range driver and a 0.75-inch tweeter.

Furthermore, they feature built-in batteries, rechargeable and are truly wireless. This means they can be easily positioned in any setup. The built-in batteries offer up to 10 hours of playback and when attached back to the main soundbar unit, they get charged. This is quite similar to how Philips first debuted their wireless detachable speakers for their soundbar many years back and is an iconic design element.

The entire system has a rated output power of 820W.

In terms of connectivity, the speakers feature HDMI eARC, Bluetooth, and built-in Chromecast and AirPlay 2. This means it can easily stream content from your Android or iOS mobile device.

The JBL Bar 9.1 is priced at S$1,799 and will be available online at the JBL Official Store on Lazada and Shopee from 4 May 2020.
