JBL Bar 2.0 All-In-One soundbar Review

During the opening chapters of WW2 action/horror Overlord (Sky Cinema), I was impressed by the soundbar’s ability to mirror the onscreen mayhem within in its stereo soundfield. As our hero is thrown from the burning aircraft and begins to tumble through the air, the soundmix is awash with details: anti-aircraft gun hammering away, droning plane engines and terrified screams. These swirl and shift within the (always in front of you) soundstage. JBL’s processing contents itself with delineating straight stereo, but that’s not necessarily a drawback.

Meanwhile, Hans Zimmer’s lush string themes in the soundtrack for Widows (Blu-ray) are a good barometer of the bar’s tonality and subtlety, and its ability to sound bigger than you’d expect.”
