Should you buy the JBL Bar 700: 5.1-Channel soundbar?
JBL is a household name in audio entertainment and home theater. The Bar 700 sits in the mid-range of JBL's Dolby Atmos-enabled Bar series. If you invest, you're going to get immersive 3D sound that will put you right at the heart of the action no matter what you're watching. The 620W of power will be enough to satisfy even the largest room, and the separate subwoofer will take care of all your low-end needs. It also comes with a handy remote.
The party piece, however, is the two detachable surround sound speakers that are wirelessly connected and battery-powered. This means you can deploy them for your movie-watching before returning them to their docks to charge and reduce clutter. As mentioned, it also supports AirPlay so you can stream music seamlessly from any Apple device including your iPhone or iPad, and it'll sync up with other AirPlay devices such as HomePod for multi-room streaming, too.
With 33% off its usual price, this is by far the best price we've seen on the JBL Bar 700, now just $599. If that's still too steep for you, the JBL Bar 500 is also 33% off and now just $399 for a system that's almost as powerful and boasts many of the same features.
