JBL Android TV Soundbar To Land In Oz October

Harman-owned JBL has confirmed its highly anticipated Android TV ‘Link Bar’ soundbar will release in Australia October this year, with pricing tipped to be around the A$600 mark.

Back in May – at the unveiling of its Bar 3.1 and Bar 5.1 – JBL claimed its Link Bar would be the first Android TV-powered soundbar with in-built Google Assistant.

The Link Bar claims to turn any TV “regardless of make or model” into a smart TV, with voice controls via Google Assistant.

JBL affirms the Link Bar is among the first of series of ‘hybrid’┬ádevices, offering both full Google Assistant and Android TV functionalities.

Concerning audio strength, the Link Bar incorporates 100W speakers, three HDMI-inputs, optical input and a single ARC HDMI output.

For eager consumers, B&H Photo Video has opened pre-orders for the Link Bar in the United States, with shipping to Australia totalling around US$426 [A$580].

Purchased from B&H, shipping will commence October 16th, with local customers advised to purchase a robust power adaptor.
