JBL Bar 800: Soundbar perfect for both cinema and music

The top-end JBL Bar 800 system includes a wireless subwoofer with a 300-watt amplifier and an active “transformable” soundbar, which is equipped with two satellites attached to the right and left sides of its body using magnetic mounts. The satellites can be “unfastened” from the soundbar (the mounts are equipped with magnets) and used wirelessly in the rear area, which allows you to build a full-fledged 5.1.2-channel surround sound system.

Each of them is equipped with a built-in amplifier and a battery designed for 10 hours of operation, and the battery can be charged when connected to a soundbar or through the Micro-USB port of a satellite.

The JBL Bar 800 soundbar uses four oval 2.25-inch mid/bass drivers and three 1.25-inch tweeters, and the bass-reflex subwoofer has an 8-inch floor-firing woofer. Each satellite contains one wideband 2.25-inch driver. This high-end soundbar supports Google Chromecast and Apple AirPlay 2 and can play music via Bluetooth or over a Wi-Fi network. In terms of connectivity, you have an HDMI input and output – the latter has HDR support, making the JBL Bar 800 compatible with Dolby Vision and 4K. Dolby Digital, Dolby Atmos and DTS formats are supported.

The system has a total power of 880 W and is perfect for both cinema and music, while providing high-quality sound. The model is equipped with a standard remote control, and can also be controlled using remote controls of many brands of TV panels, in particular, such as Sony, Samsung, LG and Vizio.
