Zebronics juke bar 9700 Pro Soundbar Review

This soundbar comes with 6 speakers and 1 subwoofer. The output of all the speakers of this soundbar is 300W, and the output of the subwoofer is 150W which makes the total output 450W.
The Soundbar comes with 4 front-firing speakers of 2.25-inch and 3Ω impedance and 2 upward-firing speakers of 2-inch with 8Ω impedance. The size of the Subwoofer is 6.5-inch and it comes with an impedance of 3Ω.
The SNR is 72dB and its Separation is 42dB. The Soundbar supports Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, and Dolby Atmos.
This 8Ω upward-firing speakers act like virtual ceiling speakers thereby creating the Atmos effect. upward-firing speakers are the most important speakers for any Soundbar.
Zebronics juke bar 9700 pro soundbar is 38-inch wide and weighs approximately 4KG.
This Soundbar has 1 HDMI OUT port (which is a 2.0 port and supports ARC) and 2 HDMI IN ports (which are 2.0 ports and support 4K HDR passthrough). Along with these, there is 1 Optical Input, 1 USB, 1 AUX, Bluetooth 5.0.
If you connect the Zebronics juke bar 9700 pro soundbar with the HDMI ARC port of your TV then at most you will get 5.1 audio, but not Dolby Atmos, no matter whichever TV it will be, whichever brand it will be, and even if it supports Dolby Atmos.
Then how do you get Dolby Atmos from this soundbar? The answer is quite simple and the answer is HDMI IN port. Dolby Atmos can be decoded only by the HDMI eARC 2.1 port and not the ARC port.
That is why you will have to plug in Amazon firestick 4K in the HDMI IN port of Zebronics juke bar 9700 Pro Soundbar and through this, you will be able to enjoy Dolby Atmos through this soundbar.
You can check whether your soundbar decodes Dolby Atmos by playing the Dolby Atmos content on Netflix because only after the appearance of the logo, we can be sure about it.
When I used the Zebronics juke bar 9700 Pro soundbar without Firestick then there appeared the 5.1 logos. and when it played after using 4K Firestick, then the logo of Dolby Atmos appeared, and I must say, the quality of audio was also better.
Let me remind you to need to connect Amazon Firestick 4K in the HDMI IN port of Zebronics juke bar 9700 Pro Soundbar.
Then, use a good HDMI cable to the HDMI OUT port of the soundbar with the ARC port of your TV and this is how you will get Dolby Atmos audio along with 4k HDR passthrough.
But you must not buy this soundbar if there is no HDMI ARC port on your TV because without that, this Soundbar only gives stereo output and for this, I’ll suggest you buy an inexpensive Soundbar for under ₹10,000.
