Movie lovers, listen up. Today,JBL Australia/New Zealand, a wholly-owned subsidiary of HARMAN International & Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. is excited to announce the latest addition to its popular Bar Series, JBL Bar 9.1. Bringing a whole new level of audio experience to your living room, the Bar 9.1 creates true wireless surround sound with JBL’s signature and crowd-pleasing Original Pro Sound – now with the added punch of Dolby Atmos and the streaming support of Google Chromecast and Apple Airplay 2.
For entertainment buffs looking to escape into the latest blockbuster, re-live their favourite movie or sport scenes, the Bar 9.1 creates a surround sound experience only JBL can deliver. It is the first JBL soundbar with Dolby Atmos built-in to recreate the ultimate cinematic atmosphere in the home. Listeners will have hairs stand on end thanks to the four powerful upward-facing Dolby Atmos drivers. The custom drivers take sound to new heights by using room reflections to bounce audio from all angles, while the two battery-powered, detachable wireless rear speakers shoot sound off to the ceiling and back, creating a 3D listening experience like no other. With 820 Watts of total system power, listeners will enjoy every Oscar-worthy performance through robust, crystal-clear audio. To round out the Bar 9.1 System, the 10-inch powered subwoofer included delivers an impressive pulse-pounding bass.
On top of its dynamic audio, the Bar 9.1 supports Dolby Vision, a 4K video input that transforms viewing experience, automatically optimising the picture for every screen. The Bar 9.1 also has Chromecast, which allows for the bar to be part of a multi-room speaker setup, as well as Airplay 2 built-in, allowing users to stream their favourite tunes directly to the soundbar and set the perfect atmosphere while waiting on the popcorn.
“The JBL Bar 9.1 True Wireless Surround Sound with Dolby Atmos enhances and redefines the listening experience for home entertainment,” said Marcus Fry, Brand Activation Director of AUNZ at HARMAN. “At JBL, we are excited to bring professional, cutting-edge audio technology straight into our customers’ living rooms with our first Dolby Atmos-powered soundbar.”
Following on from the launch of Bar 2.0, 2.1 and 5.1 earlier this year, the new 9.1 offers a refined, heart-shuddering audio experience. Designed for any audiophile looking to elevate their living room space, the Bar 9.1 is the perfect sound system.
The new soundbar is available now from Harvey Norman and JB HiFi at $1499.95
