About the JBL Bar 2.0 All-in-One

Compact and budget-friendly 

JBL makes some of our top-selling sound bars, and their new Bar 2.0 promises to deliver that same reliable performance at a reasonable price. This bar's "Smart Mode" — enabled by default — applies EQ settings and digital signal processing to deliver rich sound effects for movies, sports, and shows. And it has a rear port for enhanced bass response — so you can get some low-end rumble, even when you don't have the room for a separate subwoofer.

Features

JBL BAR2.0 All-In-One: The JBL BAR 2.0 All-In-One is a compact single speaker solution for adding better sound to your television. This active soundbar speaker houses two oval "racetrack" drivers powered by a 40-watt (Max) x 2-channel amplifier. An integrated rear-firing bass port delivers deep bass from a compact soundbar solution.

  • JBL Surround Sound: JBL Surround Sound Technology delivers a virtual surround sound effect from a two-channel active soundbar speaker.
  • Dolby Digital Decoding: The JBL BAR 2.0 All-In-One supports Dolby Digital decoding (up to 5.1ch) through its HDMI ARC out and Optical digital input.

HDMI ARC Output: The JBL BAR 2.0 All-In-One features one HDMI ARC output to connect the soundbar to your TV's HDMI ARC input. The HDMI ARC output allows audio from your TV to be sent through the soundbar system. The HDMI ARC output supports Dolby Digital (5.1ch) and PCM (2ch).

  • Some televisions will only pass 2ch PCM through the ARC-enabled HDMI input from devices connected to the TV via HDMI or analog, and will only pass Dolby Digital via the TV's built-in tuner, network apps, or USB.
  • The HDMI ARC Output only supports audio transmission and does not support any type of video signals.

Optical Digital Input: In addition to HDMI connectivity, the JBL BAR 2.0 All-In-One is outfitted with an optical (toslink) digital input that supports 2ch PCM and Dolby Digital (up to 5.1ch). The digital optical output terminals of many newer flat-panel TVs only send an audio signal in 5.1ch when receiving Dolby Digita surround sound from the TV's built-in tuner, network connection, or connected USB device; and will output only 2ch stereo from sources connected to the TV via HDMI, or RCA (like your Blue-ray/DVD player or satellite/cable box).

Note: This soundbar is not equipped with an analog audio input.

Bluetooth Audio Streaming: The JBL BAR 2.0 All-In-One is equipped with built-in Bluetooth 4.2 with support for wireless audio streaming (A2DP 1.3). You'll be able to wirelessly stream stored music, music apps, and other audio content from your Bluetooth-enabled device (such as your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or computer) to the soundbar speaker system. You will still use your Bluetooth source device for playback control and to view song/artist/album info. You can pair multiple Bluetooth devices with the BAR 2.0 All-In-One, but only one device can be used for playback at a time. The system has a wireless Bluetooth range of approximately 33'.

Note: The JBL BAR 2.0 All-In-One does not support Bluetooth hands-free communication for making and answering phone calls.

Remote Control: The JBL BAR 2.0 All-In-One comes with an IR remote for wireless operation of the active soundbar speaker. The soundbar will not learn TV remotes and does not support HDMI CEC.

Mounting Options: You can place the JBL BAR 2.0 All-In-One active soundbar speaker on a shelf or tabletop, or wall-mount it with the included brackets.

Power Requirements: The active soundbar comes with a 59" AC power cord and will need to be plugged into an AC wall outlet or surge protector (sold separately - see Accessories Tab).
