The JBL Bar 300 is a sound bar that aims to provide an all-in-one solution, without the need for a subwoofer, for people who don’t want to bother with a more extensive and often more expensive system. It has six speakers in a 5.0 configuration, and uses JBL and Harman/Kardon’s own Multibeam surround/3D virtualisation technology to reproduce multi-channel streams, including Dolby Atmos.
The JBL soundbar is straightforward and includes Wi-Fi connectivity to extend its functionality and usability.
On the back of the bar is the connectivity section, which consists of an HDMI input, an optical S/PDIF port and an eARC-compatible HDMI output. The bar can decode Dolby Digital, Dolby TrueHD and Dolby Atmos streams and multi-channel LPCM signals. The Bar 300 also has a Bluetooth chip that allows you to connect your smartphone, tablet or other devices to play music.
