"The Link Bar transforms any TV into a smart TV, with legendary JBL sound performance. Equipped with the content of Android TV and the helpfulness of the Google Assistant, this soundbar is anything but ordinary. Just start with 'Hey Google' to quickly find the latest blockbuster, control a smart home, and more—all with just a voice command," Harman says.
The Link Bar is outfitted a pair of tweeters and four racetrack drivers. It has a max power rating of 100W, and a frequency response of 75Hz-20kHz. On the connectivity front, there are three HDMI ports with 4K support, and an HDMI ARC output. Bluetooth 4.2 and 802.11ac wireless connectivity are both part of the package as well.
If a speaker with microphones gives you the heebie-jeebies, JBL notes that there is a "PrivacySwitch" feature that mutes the mics when not using the Google Assistant.
