JBL Bar 9.1 - Channel Soundbar System with Surround Speakers and Dolby Atmos

JBL Bar 9.1

by JBL
What We like

This soundbar system's powerful subwoofer is complemented by a pair of wireless rear speakers. It's disappointing that the system doesn't support Dolby Vision, and we wish it had a USB port for audio playback. But it's still a good option for anyone looking for a powerful home theater system.
