The JBL Playlist 150 is a high-quality Chromecast loudspeaker capable of producing very high-quality sound and is suitable for any type of home or personal use. It is one of the few speakers that reproduces high-quality digital sound, that is, with a high 24-bit depth and an impressive 96 kHz sample rate. This ensures true digital audio reproduction that avoids compression or loss of transmission quality.

The JBL 150 can be easily installed and can also be used to create multi-room audio systems. With the Google Home app, users can set up multiple speakers that play music synchronously. All of this is done by simply connecting through your home Wi-Fi system and playing audio through your favorite streaming services using Google Chromecast. The Chromecast speaker has impressive power output considering its size, making it perfect for small to medium-sized rooms. It can fit perfectly in your home entertainment system or anywhere else in your bedroom or office.

Let’s look at the JBL brand here. This is a JBL 150 playlist with Chromecast built in. It comes in plain black. The Chromecast built-in speaker is designed for multiple rooms. With Google Cast built in, the audio streaming services provided are the Google Home app, radio, Spotify, and even podcast. You can play over Wi-Fi from Android devices, iOS devices, Windows PC, or Chromebooks. The sound quality is impressive. It is 24 bit / 96 kHz. In addition, the Mesh network combined with dual-band technology ensures a smooth music listening experience without annoying interruptions.

The JBL Playlist speaker sits somewhere in the middle of the market and is much more affordable than the Google Home Max speaker. At its current price, you will be surprised at how rich the sound quality is. Comme de nombreux autres modèles, ce modèle behavior des boutons de contrôle du volume et de manipulation des chansons (pause, lecture, etc.) sur le dessus so that you can control the music if you vote on the phone or on the mobile apparel at the pass à portée morning.

However, one thing that I really liked about this model is the fact that it supports Bluetooth. As mentioned above, Chromecast doesn’t support every application and every imaginable scenario, so having a Bluetooth option as a backup is a real life saver. Chromecast is enabled by default and also includes high-quality 24-bit 96kHz audio. Additionally, the wireless connectivity standard is the latest and greatest, using 802.11N / AC to ensure your WiFi connection is never a bottleneck.

The SK8Y has a ton of great features built in. For starters, it has Dolby Atmos support, plus it supports wireless surround sound, though you must get the optional LG SPK8-S speakers to enjoy it. On top of that, it comes with a Chromecast subwoofer, so you get all that low-end response. And of course the soundbar has Chromecast built in.

Sound wise, the soundbar is pretty good. As mentioned, it comes with a subwoofer, which means you will get extended bass response, but this subwoofer seems to be a bit muted compared to other soundbars. Things get better as the sound increases. The midrange is nicely tuned with nice warm lows, while the high end is clear and detailed.

The soundbar has received rave reviews since its launch. Trusted Reviews and TechRadar gave the soundbar 4/5, which is not bad at all. Disadvantages pointed out in these reviews include that the soundbar has only one HDMI input and does not offer 4K passthrough, which means that you will be limited in the external equipment that you can connect to the soundbar.
