Sounds bar are rubbish , unless you spent a lot of cash! (I have brought a few)
And why we have to have all these slim TVs , with rubbish speakers I never know! Guess just another way to sell rubbish to people!
My LG sound bar wouldn't connect wirelessly to my LG TV. Bluetooth only and although my tv is wireless it is not Bluetooth. If you read the spec it says wireless via Bluetooth same as my LG sound bar.
​you cant connect the sound bar to your tv by Bluetooth. what it means is it has wireless Bluetooth to connect to phones wireless to play music. you have to go into sound options on your tv and see if it has a option for wireless sound sync. if so you can connect soundbar to your tv wireless if no you cant.

I have wireless sound sync on my tv. It doesn't work. Loads of other people have reported the same issue. Feel free to play the video from LG's website shown below. It confirms that the wireless sync is via bluetooth. So as my smart tv doesn't have bluetooth it's never going to find any devices which it didn't last time I tried it with an LG soundbar.

​my lg tv does not have bluetooth just wifi and my soundbar works fine through the wireless sync. have you got the soundbar set to lg tv and the options for sound sync on, on tv. thats how mine is set up and has worked like that for 6 months.

Does this work only on LG TVs?
This soundbar works with electricals that have an optical input
​but if you have a lg tv you can use it wireless without plugging it into the tv.
INCORRECT!


​whats incorrect like as if you meaning you cant connect wireless, you can as mine is
I received mine today. Delivery was next day which was nice. First impressions are pretty good and I think it's worth £99. It looks decent and it sounds pretty decent for the money. I connected to my TV via optical and it just works. No hassle with the bluetooth connection either.

Just a few picky things worth mentioning:
- The soundbar came with a EU power cable and not a UK power cable. (Even though the subwoofer came with a UK power cable hard wired)
- Like most sound bars, the 320 wattage rating is completely meaningless rubbish. In reality, the subwoofer is 40 watt (It says so on the back), and the drivers in the sound bar are probably 10-15 watt max.
It goes loud enough for me but it's not going to blow your mind. In comparison my old Aego M 2.1 speaker system (which is a 90 watt system) is much louder.
- I ran a frequency swoop and the subwoofer can handle bass as low as 40-50hz. The crossover to the sound bar speakers is quite high at around 230-250hz. This isn't ideal but it's probably to be expected since the drivers in the sound bar are small.
Also there is audible vibration from the subwoofer cabinet at around 100hz; not ideal.
- At the default setting the subwoofer does sound a little boomy. It definitely doesn't sound as tight as my old Aego M system.

I'm still using an old 5.1 Sony DAV-DZ260 Home theatre system via optical from Sky box.

would this be an upgrade as in louder or deeper sound? Not really looked at Soundbars before but at this price I might be tempted.


​ive got an old Sony dav-sr3 system and connect it the same way you do it.
i had been thinking of getting a sound bar before but i ditched the idea as a sound bar can't be as good as a 5.1 sound system imo.
Ahh ok thanks Axeboy.

When did this deal finish? I was hoping to pick one up this week! The KS8000 has a sound bar or a UHD BD player, but it's £400 more ...
They don't even have this available for delivery at the moment. need to wait about 2 weeks before they call you to arrange delivery.

OP needs to change this in title then. Meanwhile this deal is £50 more expensive than other retailers so no longer a hot deal.
Thought it was too good to be true

You have to be a complete idiot to pay this much for a 65" TV.
I own a Hisense 4K 65" set, paid £765.00 with a five year warranty. It's an amazing TV and knocks the socks off the 50" Panasonic GT series plasma it replaced.
This Lucky Goldstar OLED is undoubtedly better than the Hisense, but £2,135 better? No chance.

Thanks Nut82UK for your comments.

Your comments suggest that you have bought a TV of the same size and compared it with a 50 inch TV and it "knocks the socks of it". Therefore that means that the TV in this deal is not £2,135 better than the one that you have purchased.

You are either some kind of genius or you are in fact correct that I am an idiot.

I was going to buy this on Friday (payday), typical the price has shot back up, any chance this'll come back down?
It will, but you'll have to remain patient
Some people are predicting that, as the new 2017 models are going to be priced above £3000, the price for the B6 might actually increase. Do you think that is likely as I am also hoping to buy the B6 if the prices drop?

If I'm being completely honest, your guess will be as good as mine. That said, oled is rare in that it's dominated by LG, perhaps someone can confirm but I'm fairly sure they're the only makers of oled panels right now, that includes those panels going into competitors TVs too I believe. So it makes the pricing oddly resilient..for now. My old man bought his 55inch oled 1080p couple of years back, it's now half the price he paid so things still drop price. While oled acts a little different in cost, there's no reason to believe it won't come down, be it slower. You will have an epic oled, just hang there and hopefully the price drop will come very soon. ☺️[/q

Thanks very much for that. Hopefully sonicdeathmonkey is right and Easter sales will see the reductions we've been waiting for
Guys hold off buying this TV - They have put the price up to 1999 for a brief period to make the Easter sales look better.

Was £1999 now £1699. £300 off sounds better than £50 off doesn't it. I reckon first week in April this is finally going to hit the magic £1500 mark. The crappy free sound bar deal will be over and they will have to make real price reductions.....
Update - you can get this deal from Argos using the TV10 code for £1799 - but only standard warranty which is a deal breaker for me :(
Should we expire this? I'm really annoyed I didn't get this deal. I tried it on at currys and RS and they were having none of it. You can't get this bundle for less than 1999 now - that's the price everywhere. If someone can find me it at 1699 I will buy you a pint!!

Well sadly mine popped tonight and turned itself off. Finally came on briefly, flashed a f61 error and then turned off. Not turned on since....beginning to wonder if this is why they had so many refurbs to sell!
thanks callum it doesn't detect the hdmi it only works with the optical and when i enable the anytime + the only device it shows up it just says tuner should it be saying something relating to the soundbar
barjami
ours didn't recognise the hdmi in the arc ports only works with the optical , how can I get my TV remote to control volume etc... I've got a Samsung tv and anytime+ is enabled
the remote supplied does work but could do without having an extra remote
Make sure your hdmi cable is at least V1.4 (Hdmi + ethernet).
Try plugging a source into soundbar input hdmi then arc port to arc port on your tv. Power everything off and on and see if its detected.

Looks like ARC is hit and miss across everything.

Yes. Just can't work out why they suddenly put prices back to pre-Christmas levels when we (well I) assumed they were shifting old stock for the new models. If I'd wanted one at £2k, I'd have got myself one for Christmas. (OK that ignores sound bar offer - or have they binned that too? - but I don't want a sound bar!)

I got this and while the sound is clear it's quite low on max volume,much much lower than the higher volume on my tv ! Quite disappointing
How do you have it connected? If via 3.5 mm aux your TV may have a separate headphone volume setting that by default is set very low. That may explain your issue a 200w sound bar should easily out do most if not all TVs on volume.

Curved tv's are biger fail than 3d.

Why are they? I must admit I was insure about them at first, my parents got one and I went round for a nosey and there's nothing wrong with the curve, it's very subtle and the image looks great. Convinced me to get one when I recently got a new tv, also a ks7500

haven't quite worked out how this website works have you? you vote hot or cold if you can get the same product cheaper elsewhere, what you don't do is vote cold because in you opinion you can have a different (inferior) product for less money.

its about the specific product for the best price, hot if you can't get it cheaper anywhere else, cold if you can.

hope that helps.

I understand that Sonos kit is good - But it is very overpriced :(


So are iPhones; doesn't stop people buying them (myself included), and doesn't stop people appreciating the rare opportunity to save on RRP!
Did anyone purchase - plain box or Sonos?

Frustration Free Packaging - no Sonos box I assume?
Sonos packaging is some of the best there is - ffp will probably just be that they have verified it's easy to open.
Sadly no longer sold by Amazon at that price.

Forgive my ignorance, but do these soundbars come with a separate sub woofer? If not, can they easily be connected somehow? The bass just can't be up to much if not, and the biggest improvement from my pov for films is some really deep base. Tia. Hot btw, thanks.


​ probably not able to connect a sub to this. i can't confirm. more expensive models come with separate subs. i have a Philips model number 5000-something. it's fantastic and has a wireless sub... But costs a great deal more than this.

Read comments about the TV not having WiFI as advertised. If you don't really need WiFI, you might be able to complain and get a partial refund (someone did this last year when the same TV was on sale from CO-OP's ebay shop).
wheres the comments? I checked both on ebay and actual co op site and got nothing on not being wifi included in the TV? so where did you get that from? can you provide link or something? was actually considering to buy this TV
It was on a deal for the TV when it was posted here last year, however I got the TV today and it does have WiFi.
For a £300 50" 4K TV it has masses of features, and the picture quality is better than expected. It does a half decent job upscaling even standard def to 4K, and 1080p is nice.
When I say 'better than expected', I mean considering the price. It's still no match for the more expensive big brand 4K TV's, but it's certainly good enough. Just wish I had some 4K content to try on it.

The only thing that concerned me was no mention of a headphone socket on any of the sites I looked on, as the speakers were bound to be awful and I wanted to plug a 2.1 PC speaker set into the telly. Thankfully, it does have a headphone socket.

EDIT:
Just downloaded a 4K demo video, and it played via USB and looked pretty damned good!

my ps4 came today, box seal was broken and also flap was cut along the edge, no game that I can see inside, definitely no disk, would it be a physical or digital copy that would have been included? I've emailed coop but so far no reply :(
The seal should never be broken. This is not right. Also it was a hard copy bundle. Looks like it was tampered with. Best thing to do right away is call co op ebay customer service on 0330 606 1006. I have spoken to them previously and their service is excellent. Ring them up and explain the situation. Good luck :)

The 50" Vestel TV is £300 at its most expensive.

what is "Vestel" TV's I see it everywhere on HUKD comments? the make is Digihome? no?

.


Vestel are a generic manufacturer who have virtually cornered the market in bottom of the range TVs. Panasonic, Hitachi, and many more bottom range TVs are actually Vestel re-badges. Google it and you will see, literally hundreds of brands are actually Vestel's now. You can spot them in the rear image of TVs as only Vestel models have a slot for a three pin plug to be put in on the back of the TV, plus the layout of the inputs and the design of the feet.

You can find somewhere on HUKD someone posted their catalogue of generic TVs that brands can purchase from them.

Can't fault this sound bar for £55 (£70 on Amazon but still £55 in Argos & Tesco).

More powerful than my TV's speakers and it points the sound at me rather than down towards the floor which helps.

Inexpensive bit of kit that is ideal for making your TV louder.
Tabtester
I have 2 of these on two different tvs and the difference is massive between built in speakers and this. No idea what you lot are on about. Awesome little soundbar.

I don't doubt what you say but the sound difference can all depend on what tv's people have and in some instances how it is mounted. I recently mounted a Samsung 32" K5500 inside a wardrobe in a bedroom. The sound was amazing, sounded like surround sound with the sound buffering off the shelf above, the chest of drawers below and the sides of the wardrobe. I wouldn't have believed just how good it was. I have a mid range LG tv in the lounge and the sound from the standard speakers is pretty good with it sat on a unit (not wall mounted) but it's all about comparisons. I bought the LAS160B, that's the lower 50 watt model. I took it back as the sound was terrible when comparing it to my LG. Now if I had a Polaroid or some other low end, low price tv then I may have found the soundbar better than the tv. I didn't try try the model posted as again LG have failed to put an infra red repeater on it which means the tv remote won't work. Why LG insist on putting the IR receiver in the middle of the tv at the bottom is crazy. Not everyone want to wall mount their tv. Reviews are very good for the model posted with very few negative reviews. Best sound I heard recently was a set up my brother in law has. He kept his old music system from the 90's and has his tv connected to the amp with four proper music speakers. Sound is amazing. No soundbar, no hdmi, no separate sub-woofer, just a retro amp and speakers with amazing result.

I bought this a few weeks ago. nice sound, but does lack a bit of depth, missing a sub definitely.

only came with a power cable, so had to buy an optical cable. Also had to buy a seperate bracket off ebay costing another £10.

other than that, value for money, beats the sound off the TV handsdown.

Looks like most would rather give their heat for the LAS160B that was one Argos Ebay a short while back for £39.00. More fool them if they bought one. I know this is a bit more money but this one has excellent reviews unlike the 160b which is absolute rubbish. I know, I bought one and took it back. Sometimes paying a little more is a better option. This is a decent quality soundbar for the money but if it was polaroid or goodmans at half the price it would be attracting serious heat.

In the manula it says you can configure the soundbar remote to control your tv but not the other way around. I always like my devices to match so if I had a Samsung tv I would be looking for a Samsung soundbar. I was looking for this model not so long ago but cheapest I could get it was at £179.99. I would have bought a second hand one if I could because it matches the colour of my LG tv which is gun metal. Also my tv has the remote sensor in the bottom middle of the tv so the tv remote still works. I couldn't get one at the price I wanted to pay so bought this instead. My guess is it the sound that replaced the NB3540 and has a slightly better spec in that it has an hdmi socket. This is what I bought.

Seems good, anyone know if this will work with a Samsung 2016 series 7 TV. I'd like to control volume on / off?
This is a decent sound bar for the money. It was over £200 last year and although it's an old model that should be detrimental to the sound. Although described as silver I think these are more of a gun metal to match the colour of some of LG's 2014 / 2015 TV's.

Hope it's better than the LAS160B, 50 watt model. I took mine back as the sound was better on the tv which is also LG. Also no infra red repeater so if you have tv on it's stand and not on the wall you can't operate the tv using tv remote. Manufacturers offer sound bars to improve the sound quality and stick the remote sensor of the tv at the bottom in the middle. Great design feature.....not. Sometimes the clever boys and girls can be so stupid. Stick the remote sensor for the tv on the top. Simple.
Just going back to the LAS160B it had 3 preset modes. They make no difference in the sound. It wasn't a lot of money but after two weeks I thought enough is enough and took it back. Looks like in order to get some decent sound you need to spend more money. If only clear voice actually worked and maybe if the background music on tv shows and films wasn't so loud then perhaps we could actually hear what people are saying. American programmes seem to be the worst affected.
https://www.amazon.co.uk/LG-LAS260B-Bluetooth-Jack-input-mountable/dp/B01AHJTP22


Yes, it has some excellent reviews on Amazon with only 3 at three stars or less and one of thise reviews wasn't any issue with the sound quality. Looks like paying a bit more money really does the trick over the160B which was awful in my opinion, certainly when comparing with my LG tv. Not that many 1, 2 or 3 star reviews on Argos either but anyone can leave reviews on both sites so checked Revoo where you have to prove you bought it in order to leave a review. Same thing there also so looks to be a good buy for the price.

for my 700w amp i got for a tenner I don't think these going to have enough unfff, any suggestions on a budget?
These speakers are rated at 75W RMS - RMS can't really be converted to 700W PMPO (inaccurate/false power rating), but I'd say your £10 amp is no more than 20 RMS (actual power rating) , so not even close to push these speakers.


Actually, you can get a rough idea of the RMS from PMPO; here is how you do it.

700 / 2 (RMS is max +ve signal to 0 volts and PMPO is max +ve to max -ve) = 350
350/ number of channels (we will assume 2 - RMS is per channel, PMPO is total), = 175
175/1.4 (RMS is sustained power, PMPO is peak, so even 1.4 is being generous) = 122.5

Still looking OK isnt it?? But here is the biggie, Hifi power ratings are given at 0.1% distortion, PMPO at 10%, so
122.5/100 = 1.2 watts RMS of usable power (1% and the sound will be so distorted it will hurt your ears, and at 10% it will blow out the cones of even a 1KW RMS rated speaker).

I run a pair of speakers rated at 20 Watts RMS on a 100 WPC RMS amp with no problems, as sound is logarithmic, you need to double the power for each small increase in perceived loudness, those speakers make the windows rattle!!.

Is there a particular type of power supply for the small amps, that is better than any other. I notice most of them come without a power supply.
Just try and avoid cheap chinese power supplies as they are usually rubbish and potentially dangerous.
Below is an example of a reasonably priced, reputable power supply. I used this power supply for my T-amp (Muse M20 EX2):https://www.amazon.co.uk/Genuine-CWT-Technology-Monitors-equipment/dp/B004HCCVLI/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1485085435&sr=8-2&keywords=cwt+power+supply[font=arial,sans-serif]111[/font]
I have seen reviews which claim that using a more substantial power supply (e.g. A 5A instead of 2A) improved their bass response.
do you have any tips on choosing one of the small amplifiers. I've done quite a lot of reading but the problem is, how do you know one is getting good components. What I want is the most basic amplifier with all the budget put in to the component and a reasonable looking case. I know the price goes up and obviously the quality but how does one know that one is getting quality. Any tip or thoughts from yourself or anyone else would be much appreciated
I was in the same boat as you a couple of years back and after reading a lot of people's thoughts I chose the one in the link below but of course things may have changed by now. I went for one of the slightly more expensive amps with more power to avoid overdriving the amp, potentially leading to damage to amp, speakers or both but I believe they do a similar lower power model too. Only bought it to use in the kitchen but it's got to be one of the best hifi bargains I've come across since buying my first set up in the early 80's!https://www.amazon.co.uk/SA-98E-TDA7498E-Stereo-Digital-Amplifier/dp/B015J0P7VM/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1485834478&sr=8-10&keywords=smsl+amp
Thanks, that looks really great, looks like they spend the money on where you want it , no fancy stuff. I have always heard about clipping but I never realise how dangerous it is for ones speakers and I watched a few YouTube videos. That said I might give the next power level down , the ones that runs off 24 V. By the way how much background hiss is there with these amps? Thanks

As it was only for a kitchen set up I never really paid much attention but just playing around now and there seems to be no background hiss at all. I just paused the music and turned the volume control up to around the 2 oclock mark and it's silent from where I was standing.which was probably about 4 foot or less from ear to nearest ceiling speaker. If you put the model number into Amazon you will find an older listing for the same amp at a higher price. Worth looking at some of the reviews there as you'll see others that agree it's a very capable amp for the money. Take note of the bad review relating to the power lead though as he has a good point. It's a detachable kettle lead though so I just used an spare one from an old bit of hifi gear.

Just collected some from the cardiff branch. Tried them out using Pioneer amp, they're not bad sounding but lack any major punch. Great rears or kitchen speakers but no good for main fronts or main system speakers. Can't complain at all for £40

I've got one of these and although the sound quality is nothing special at least it is better than what comes out of my tv.

The big plus point for me is that, size wise, it is ideal for a 32 inch tv whereas most soundbars are quite a bit wider.

I connected via an optical lead (not included).

For the money it's not a bad buy but don't expect it to sound like your local cinema.
Bad reviews for it,if you want anything other than tinny tinny sound then don't waste your money

If that was a question, then I already have this product (with two LG Music Flow H7 speakers connected to provide surround sound) & can attempt to answer any (further) questions you may have.
MikeLondon
Thanks, how good is this, is it worth it? I did order and its coming tomorow. But could always send it back un opened.
I cannot tell you if, to you, it is worth what you paid for it, especially given your financial circumstances (& any interest payments you will need to make, or any hardship you will experience because of your frivolous spending), but when combined with the Android LG Music Flow "app", &/or the MS-Windows desktop application (downloaded from the LG [UK] web site), I am finding the system very useful. Much louder & faster start-up time compared to the previous LG Soundbar I replaced (when the subwoofer went "pop" just before Christmas). That was almost three years old though, so improvements are to be expected.
I stream audio from my laptop, or from my mobile telephone handset, using the Soundbar's Bluetooth connection.
The Google Cast feature from my Android handset (or tablet) is also useful.
I have also set-up a music server so that I can play audio files using my TV as the visual interface for the selection process.
The MS-Windows application additionally provides this feature, as well as offering further configuration settings that are difficult to achieve using the Android "app".
Set-up "out-of-the-box" was very easy, but you will need to find the instruction manual upon the LG (UK) web site if you encounter a problem because the product box did not contain anything useful in this respect.
I have my Soundbar connected with an Ethernet cable to my (Wi-Fi) router, & by optical cable to my LG HD-TV (& selecting "LG Sound Sync (Optional)" as the input device).
The subwoofer is connected wirelessly to the Soundbar, & the two satellite (surround) speakers connected to the system wirelessly too.
The whole system creates a single wireless network that all other LG Music Flow-enabled hardware can connect to.
Downsides:
The Soundbar is quite long, & sits in front of my 42-inch HD-TV. The TV stand I use holds the TV fine, but the Soundbar now hangs off both ends because of its length.
Connection of the surround speakers can be hit'n'miss, especially if the wireless network is prone to dropping (as mine does at least once per day).
I regularly have to use the Android "app" to disconnect the two extra speakers, & re-connect them again, before any sound can be heard from the system. That may not be a problem in your set-up though, not least that you do not have any additional speakers presently.
I recently (just a few days ago) changed the wireless channel the LG Music Flow network uses, & this has improved the connection issues. I suspect there is just too many other wireless-based hardware in my local area, & somebody else's wireless signals were sharing "my" bandwidth channel.
Finally, I couldn't get the "LG Sound Sync (Wireless)" input device to work at all with the new Soundbar, but it worked fine with my old one! I gave up trying, & that is why I am using an optical cable, but it may be that I just haven't found the correct way to set-up the new Soundbar so far. As I said, instructions provided with the product were next-to-useless.

Cheers, I have just set it up and am really impressed. Looks and sounds great, intact -I will look out for the h3 to complete a system next month. thanks for your help.

I have a silly question, maybe one of you can help with. I have got the k450, at the moment I have it wired up via hdmi, so I have my sat box hdmi cable plugged into HDMI IN port on the sound bar then I have another hdmi cable plugged into HDMI OUT port on the sound bar which is connected to the tv. The issue is that it works with the sat box but if I change channels or connect a laptop/device into another free hdmi port on the tv then the sound bar doesnt work with it.
I have HDMI ARC enabled on my tv, tv is a phillips.

Do I need to change my setup or is there something I am missing?

I haven't connected the optical cable on the soundbar, I just went with hdmi and thought it would be all good.



Hdmi sound bar direct to Tv then all sound through Tv plays through sound bar.

Connect everything (your devices) to the TV.
Then from the TVs ARC Port put that to HDMI IN on the Soundbar.
What that does is, all the sound comes to the TV but because it should pick up the Soundbar through ARC it will send the sound via that.
You set your Soundbar to D.In and anything that's playing on the TV should come through.
I have the J551 here. I have mine set up with Optical however - Previously ARC (I need the HDMI ports elsewhere).

Thank you so much for the reply. At first I am sure I had it setup this way. It was only after I got it wall mounted that it wasn't working and the person installing it for me said it should be setup with both hdmi cables in. However the problem that I now have is that my sat box plays via soundbar fine but any other hdmi connected device will not.

I will try that out what you said because I was so sure I had it first setup this way and was working.




No problem, and I'm happy to help further should you need it.

Worth a try to check with both ports on the Soundbar (Out and In). As I can't fully remember which one I had it in now. But I do know that all my devices were into the TV which then pushed the sound through Arc. So whatever is on the TV comes through the Soundbar.

So be sure to interchange if one Port doesn't work.

Just had a look at my manual online, it says it should work how you have it set up. Set top box into In; Arc into Out. But I never contemplated that setup, put everything in the TV.

Optical from TV to Soundbar works also with zero issues (and I prefer as I have a spare hdmi). Downside being you can't use HDMI-CEC (control with one remote). I ended up getting a Logitech Harmony 650 and never looked back.

Have you tried swapping the HDMI cables on the sound bar - sound daft I know - just try it, you may be surprised

​beat me!


​With what?
I would recommend these. I have one for sale on eBay at the moment. Just over a year old. I only replaced as my new TV came in a bundle with a sound bar, subwoofer and rear surround speakers.

Sound quality is very good. There is a bout in subwoofer which does its job. Ideal for those who don't want wires everywhere for surround sound (the main reason why I bought it).
Here's the what hifi review. Personally I wouldn't touch a soundbase/bar without HDMI now.

There isn't a manufacturer cashback offer it's a store offer which AO are running.

This was the old deal, maybe worth holding out until it's less than £100 again?

Not sure they're still producing these. The 106 is available in the US which is the same thing just with HDMI inputs. I asked Yamaha and they said they have no plans to release in the EU but with everyone only having a couple of units left it's probably coming soon.

Bought mine at Xmas for £170, needed a soundbar without a subwoofer to avoid annoying neighbors and i'm more than happy. I'm not an audiophile though.

This was the old deal, maybe worth holding out until it's less than £100 again?
I can vouch for this sound bar. Luckily picked mine up sub £100 on an Amazon deal, but it is very good. Well worth £150. Heat!
I purchased one of these a while back. Still love it !!

Are sound bases a good substitute for a sound bar that sits around 12 inches under the base of the TV?

Have you got this one? I've been looking at some of the Cambridge ones, and that one came up.
Wondering mainly what it's like for music. I want to scale down my hifi setup and get rid of amp + stereo speakers for the sake of redecorating. I know a soundbar will never match it, but it's hard to find reviews that go into any depth about the music playback quality.

Yes I have and would recommend it. You can try it out at one of the Richer sounds stores

Soundbars for Enhanced Viewing Pleasure

Soundbars produce the clear dialogue, rich music and dramatic special effects that viewers crave and most TV speakers fail to deliver. They’re also easy to use and their sleek forms match today’s flat screen televisions. What’s more, they do all this without breaking the bank.

An Inspired Solution

Today’s flat screen TVs deliver the kind of stunning picture quality that would have been unthinkable just a few years ago and at a price point we can all afford. They also look great, bringing a minimalist vibe to any space. But as for the audio, that’s a different story. The problem is that with the TV’s slim frames, there’s just no place to put the kind of loudspeakers that churn out that rich, deep base or crisp, thrilling treble modern consumers demand for an immersive viewing experience.

Wireless soundbar with subwoofer

One option is to hook the TV up to an AV receiver with multiple speakers. Other than the expense and often baffling connectivity options, this solution tends to be overkill. Most of us just want to turn on our TVs and start enjoying quality video and audio without having to faff around with plugs and controls. Fortunately, there’s a solution that’s simple, elegant and economical.

Enter the Soundbar

Unknown just a few years ago, Soundbars are now ubiquitous and come in a wide range of styles, types and price points. Manufacturers include mainstream electronics firms, such as Philips and Sony, along with dedicated, high-end audio companies such as Bose and Klipsch.

What Exactly is a Sound Bar?

As the name suggests, most are bar-shaped structures around 40 inches or longer in length, containing loudspeakers, an amplification system (in the case of active models), and a range of control and connectivity options. You simply place the unit on the stand under your TV or affix it to the wall on a bracket, hook it up to your television with a simple lead, flip a switch: start enjoying far better audio quality than you ever got from your TV’s own audio system.

Most units hold between two and five speakers. Some feature speakers angling outward at each end to produce a sense of space. In addition, most higher end models feature a separate sub-woofer to deliver the rich bass that creates such a powerful effect when viewing sports programmes, movies, concerts and more.

Platform-Style Soundbars

While most models are bar-shaped, you can also find pedestal or platform-style soundbars. These are bulkier units made to fit under your TV serving as a base or platform. Some models feature subwoofers conveniently built into the unit. Others come with wireless speakers to position to the sides or rear and create a true surround sound effect.

Types of Soundbar

Most soundbars are active. That means they’re self-contained with their own amplification circuits, require a power source. Just plug in the output from your TV, switch them on, and you’re good to go.

You can also find passive units which have no amplifying function. Strangely enough, these tend to be more expensive than active models. They also require some form of amplification, usually in the form of an AV receiver. The complexity of such setups tends to negate the simplicity that makes active soundbars so alluring, but they are an option.

Sound Output

  1. Most soundbars are only able to render the basic audio output delivered by your television. Should your TV be capable of delivering enhanced digital sound such as produced by various Dolby and other systems, basic soundbars will be unable to take advantage of it.
  2. However, you can also find models with integrated sound decoding systems to render enhanced digital outputs so you can enjoy the highest quality audio.
  3. Another option is to get a multi-channel sound bar, which creates faux or simulated surround sound. It does add a feeling of depth to your audio, but can’t compare with the real thing.
  4. If you crave the real surround sound experience, look into models such as the Sonos Playbar, which hooks up wirelessly to other speakers for a genuine 5.1 channel effect.

Subwoofers

If you’re a movie buff who insists on rich dramatic audio, you’ll want a model with a subwoofer to deliver that window-rattling bass that’s part of a realistic viewing experience. These come in two types: integrated and external.

Integrated subwoofers are most often found in platform type soundbars. External models are separate bulky boxes that usually sit on the floor. If you opt for one of these, you’ll need to be sure you have the space to position it properly. Choosing a wireless unit offers far more flexibility in positioning but you’ll need an unobstructed spot near a power outlet.

Get Yourself Connected

One of the key factors to consider when looking for the right soundbar is the range of available connectivity options. Virtually all soundbars include one analog input (RCA) and a digital input socket, either coaxial or optical. These allow the unit to connect easily to most modern TVs. Other possible ports include SPIDIF (Toslink). However, choosing a model with HDMI (High Definition Media Interface) and USB (Universal Serial Bus) inputs greatly enhances the flexibility of your soundbar.

Choosing a soundbar with a HDMI port means you can simply connect it to the HDMI socket on your television. However, you need to choose the ARC (Audio Return Channel) HDMI port on your TV as this is the one that delivers an audio signal. You may have to enable ARC mode in your television configuration if this is not done by default.

Base platform

HDMI connectivity on your soundbar may be important if you plan to link up with a Blu-ray player. This is because certain soundtracks on Blu-ray featuring enhanced frequencies can only be delivered through HDMI cables. However, this all hinges on you having a soundbar capable of handling these types of signal. If not, you’ll still be able to play your Blu-ray DVDs, but without the enhanced audio.

If you plan to hook up your smartphone or tablet to play music through your soundbar, look for a model with an USB port or two. This also allows you to link the soundbar to a computer, or plug in a memory stick and play the music stored on it. However, most users prefer to use wireless connections nowadays.

Bluetooth Connectivity

Wireless connectivity between TV and soundbar is currently limited to a few models produced by LG and Samsung. But having a Bluetooth enabled soundbar lets you link it up to your smartphone or tablet without the need for unsightly leads and wires. This way, you can seamlessly stream music from online services and import them to your soundbar over Bluetooth.

If you’re an Apple user, look for a soundbar that features AirPlay wireless technology. This lets you use your iPod, iPad or iPhone, to stream audio. You can also use Android or Windows based phones and tablets to access other on-line streaming services and render them through your soundbar.

Wi-Fi Connectivity

Wi-Fi is all the rage nowadays, linking up our printers and other accessories to our computers. Soundbars with built-in Wi-Fi are able to connect to your home router and stream music from online services or from your computer or laptop. It’s a great solution to produce background music for dinner parties or just to relax.

A Networked World

Soundbars are becoming increasingly sophisticated with a rich array of features being added. These include the ability to access online streaming movie and music services including Netflix and Amazon Video and social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook, as well as various video sites. Smart TVs have this feature built in. But if you own an older TV that lacks this functionality, this is a great solution.

Multiple Connection Options

One concern buyers have when looking for the right soundbar is that most models feature only a limited number of input ports. While this is not a concern for regular viewers, users with multiple devices such as cable boxes, game consoles, satellite receivers or Blu-ray/DVD players may worry about how to link them all up to a soundbar, which possesses just a few sockets.

The straightforward solution is to hook up all the devices to your TV and play the audio through your soundbar, effectively bypassing your TV’s own speakers. Most modern TVs are equipped with at least 4 HDMI inputs and several component video inputs which should be sufficient to accommodate all your devices.

You can connect your TV to your soundbar with either a digital or analog connection. The digital HDMI or optical connection is the better choice if your soundbar can handle it, but the analog is almost as good. Now you have the convenience of all your audio inputs coming from one source – your TV. Depending on your choice of television you may have to go into settings and disable the internal speaker. Check your TV’s manual for details. Of course, if your soundbar has plenty of ports, you may wish to plug all inputs directly into it.

How to Connect a Soundbar to a TV

Soundbar Features

Most soundbars are refreshingly minimalist in form and function but some offer features that offer greater control over your unit.

Controls

Bose soundbarMost models simply feature an on-off switch, volume control, and connection panel at the back. Higher-end soundbars may also feature built-in controls to alter tone as well as volume. You can adjust bass or treble, for example, to suit your taste and enhance your listening experience. Some models feature presets with customised modes for speech, movies, different types of music, along with concert hall and other effects.

Remote Controls

  • Unless you want to keep getting up to adjust the volume, you might look for a soundbar that comes with a remote control. Unfortunately, most do not. One option is to invest in a model of soundbar capable of remote learning. That way, you can teach it to accept commands from your existing TV remote control.
  • Another method is to acquire a universal remote. Getting a remote with backlighting is also a good idea, as TV is usually enjoyed in dimly-lit rooms.
  • Yet another increasingly popular solution is to use an app that turns your Apple or Android smartphone into a remote for the soundbar. You’ll need to check if your manufacturer offers such an app.

Displays

In line with their minimalism, many makers of soundbars implement no display at all, save a power light. More advanced models offer LCD displays, generally taking the form of a number that indicates the volume level. Other displays can advise you as to which source the soundbar is currently hooked in. If you’re using a simple HDMI or AV input from your TV, the type of display probably won’t be important.

Using Soundbars with AV Receivers

One question many buyers ask is whether it’s possible to connect a soundbar to an AV receiver. As receivers and most soundbars both contain amplifiers, it seems like a recipe for conflict.

One point to consider is that the amplifiers in receivers tend to be more powerful than those in soundbars. That means it could be better to connect the receiver to external loudspeakers rather than to an active soundbar.

Another option is to acquire a passive soundbar that has no amplification circuitry.

Finally, a few soundbar models are designed to be able to work with receivers. So if this is a priority, you should check for this feature when doing your research.

Soundbar Buying Tips

  1. Be sure to match the size of your chosen unit to the size of your TV. Take measurements of the height, width and depth of the area where you plan to position your soundbar.
  2. You’ll also need to consider the size of your rooms. Soundbars are just fine for use in small to medium sized spaces, but larger areas may demand the use of more powerful AV receiver and speaker systems.
  3. Decide whether you want to place your soundbar under your television on a cabinet or stand, or mount it on the wall. If the former, be sure there’s enough space to safely position it that it doesn’t block your TV’s remote control sensor.
  4. If you’re investing in a platform-style model, be sure it can take the weight of your TV.
  5. If you plan to acquire a model with separate subwoofer, consider where you’re going to position it. Choosing a wireless model will give you greater options, but bear in mind it will require a power source.
  6. Check the connectivity options on your TV. Most modern televisions feature HDMI, optical and AV audio outputs, which are all you need for basic use.
  7. If your TV features Dolby or some other enhanced digital audio output, you might want to choose a soundbar with built-in decoders that can render it.
  8. Check that your soundbar comes with all the cables you need. Otherwise, you’ll have to buy them separately.

The Verdict

If you’re a serious audiophile who plans to use the system to listen to music, or if you crave the full movie theatre or concert hall effect at home, you’d be better served investing in a component stereo or home theatre system. For most of us, however, soundbars work just great. They’re simple to use and deliver just the level of audio quality we need for a satisfying viewing experience while keeping our rooms uncluttered. And on top of that, they don’t cost the earth. What’s not to like?
