Review on Sound Bar JBL Bar 2.0 All-in-One Black by Shimamoto Tatsuki ᠌

Revainrating 4 out of 5

A good product, but having its own defects.

I wanted a compact and high-quality sound for a computer. It was decided to pick up a short soundbar up to 60cm long. Considered: Xiaomi Mi TV Soundbar - it is not at all suitable for music, Creative Stage - 2.1 with a subwoofer - good bass, but disgusting body performance, background in speakers and Canton DM 5 Soundbar - ideal in sound, but the price did not suit. Therefore, a compromise was chosen - JBL Bar 2.0 All-in-One. And so, what I wanted - wireless computer speakers for playing games and listening to music from your phone via bluetooth. What I got: monolithic acoustics of excellent workmanship, laconic design (it fits perfectly on a desk shelf and even under a 27-inch monitor!) But there is also a fly in the ointment - via Bluetooth, in fact, they cannot be used as a permanent playback device, due to falling asleep speakers in no sound for 10 minutes! I had to connect the speaker using optical SPDIF (which, unfortunately, I didn’t have in my computer, I had to solder the optical transmitter from the old motherboard and make a TTL-Spdif / spdif toslink adapter). And now, after connecting with an optical cable, everything fell into place! The soundbar now turns on itself when the computer is turned on, it works constantly while the computer is turned on, the sound has become quieter but also more powerful, voluminous (than bluetooth), and the equalizer on the PC has eliminated all sound flaws. Bottom line: If your TV, computer does not have optical sound or HDMI, do not even try to buy these speakers. But if you foresee everything before buying, you will get a high-quality, compact and modern device. for kitchen or small room, which not only allows you to watch TV and movies with powerful sound effects, but also listen to music with good quality.

Pros
  • Compactness, internal power supply, convenient remote control, acceptable sound, original indication (but also minuses from it). There are practically no competitors with such dimensions on the market. Special thanks for the high-quality HDMI cable - the only cable that worked HDMI-ARC on the LG soundbar
Cons
  • Not a single power indicator lights up during operation, falls asleep after 10 minutes of operation - when connected via Bluetooth. You can't completely turn off the internal equalizer, the sound is a little muffled (bass on the middle ones - fixable). Aux input missing. Only one device can remember via Bluetooth, you have to reconnect your computer, phone, etc. (for example, the Chinese BK8000L bluetooth remembers all the devices in the house and connects itself to the first one). There is a significant heating of the case (on the bottom left) with the optical output working, even when no music is playing.

Got pros: Design, value for money, brand reputation. Got cons: Sound settings functionality could be better.
