Deal on JBL Bar 2.0 All-in-One Soundbar for only $129

Low-cost, easy-to-use soundbars have a certain appeal. Sure, they are not the performance behemoths that some larger and more expensive units claim to be or they will not offer you a night-and-day difference from what your TV can do, but they do have some strengths that many people appreciate and choose, and that is none other than the fact that for such a low cost you get an upgrade in the sound performance of your TV, while keeping things very simple in terms of day-to-day use and setting everything up.

But to keep things in perspective, the JBL Bar 2.0 All-in-One that we will look at today is a single-unit soundbar that consists of a 2.0-channel sound system, supports Dolby Digital, and comes with the standard feature set that we see in these low-cost units, including Bluetooth and USB streaming, HDMI connection, some basic audio settings, and a very simple plug-and-play design. The Bar 2.0 All-in-One follows the new design lines that characterize most new JBL products.

The appearance is simple, with very subtle straight lines and curves, and will certainly go unnoticed in most situations. The unit certainly looks like a shrunken down version of the Bar 2.1 Deep Bass and measures only 24.17″ x 2.28″ x 3.54″ (614 x 58 x 90 mm), and with a weight of just 1.61 kg it is not only easy to handle, but can also be placed under any TV, including smaller ones measuring less than 40″, making it an excellent choice if you want to place it under a gaming monitor or something similar.

Also, if you take into account the fact that it uses only front speakers, while there is no subwoofer, you should have no problem placing it under your TV or anywhere else in a small cabinet, regardless of its size and design. In terms of appearance, JBL has used similar materials in many of its offerings, and this one is no different, as it uses a dark gray plastic that covers most of the top, bottom, and back sides. The perforated grille that covers the entire front side and hides the speakers and front display extends to the sides, although there are no side speakers. The whole design is made to go as unnoticed as possible, and surely many will appreciate it.

It is effective and simple and certainly gets the job done. The unit is a typical 2.0-channel soundbar that includes the two main channels in the main bar and nothing else. JBL rated the soundbar at 80 watts of power (Max. @THD 1%) with 2 x 40 watts for the main unit, which is actually an improvement considering that the JBL Bar Studio had 2 x 30 watts of power. Each main channel consists of a single high-excursion racetrack driver, which is about as simple an audio configuration as you can get. Racetrack drivers are widely used in low-profile soundbars because they provide similar output and sound quality without compromising size and bulk.

The soundbar drivers give the Bar 2.0 All-in-One a frequency response of 70 Hz to 20 kHz, which is what can be expected from such a small soundbar. Let us now look at the means of control of this soundbar. As always, the supplied remote control is extremely similar to that of the Bar 2.1 Deep Bass, with only two fewer buttons. To be honest, this is one of the simplest remotes we have seen in a soundbar and certainly will not impress anyone with its design and appearance. The quality of the plastic is good, but nothing exceptional, and it is slightly longer than one would expect from a remote that has a total of five buttons to manage.
