In terms of comparing JBL Bar 5.1 vs Sony HT-X9000F the JBL Bar 5.1 is surprisingly cheap-looking for its price tag. It's mostly plastic in its design, and while it feels robust, the buttons and screen aren’t as slick as you’ll find on competitors. It has 510W of total system power. It is also equipped with a subwoofer of the type found in more traditional “wireless” settings, as it is connected to a power source, but is connected to the soundbar wirelessly. Each channel is amplified by a special power module with a total peak power of 300 watts. This is an interesting proposition, and it certainly makes JBL Bar 5.1 outstanding.
Now let’s see Sony HT-X9000F vs JBL Bar 5.1.
