  JBL’s Bar 5.0 Multibeam is an all-in-one soundbar with Virtual Dolby Atmos Announcing alongside a range of updated headphones and a Bluetooth speakerThe announcement of the JBL Bar 5.0 comes a year after the company announced its first Dolby Atmos soundbar, the JBL Bar 9.1. The previous Atmos soundbar used upward-firing drivers to bounce sound off the ceiling to give the impression of it coming from above. In contrast, the new JBL Bar 5.0, which costs less than half the price of its predecessor, uses virtualization to achieve what JBL claims is a similar effect. It’s unlikely to sound as convincing, but the result is a much more affordable soundbar.

The JBL SA750 is a new stereo amplifier pairing modern streaming technologies like Airplay 2 and Google Chromecast with a design that wouldn’t look out of place in a hi-fi rack from the ‘60s or ‘70s. It’s got a set of reassuringly chunky-looking dials and switches as physical controls, an understated display, and its sides are covered with wood veneers. The amplifier, whose release coincides with JBL’s 75th anniversary, will cost $3,000 when it goes on sale beginning this May.

Alongside its wireless connectivity, which includes support for UPnP alongside Apple and Google’s protocols, the JBL SA750 has all the wired inputs you’d expect. There are six pairs of analog RCA inputs, a 3.5mm aux in, and two optical and two coaxial digital inputs alongside USB and Ethernet.

It may look retro , but the JBL SA750 integrated amplifier is bristling with digital technology Connectivity includes Ethernet and WiFi, with UPnP for connecting to a home network. The JBL SA750 also has two pairs of binding-post speaker connectors and one stereo RCA preamp output.

As a standalone stereo amplifier, you’ll need to plug in a separate set of speakers to listen to the JBL SA750. To that end it’s got two pairs of binding-post speaker connectors, and it can output up to 220W of power per channel. We’re sure JBL would love to sell you a pair of its new L100 Classic 75 loudspeakers to use alongside it, but at $5,500 a pair, they’re far from an economical choice.
