Is this a good soundbar?i have a OLED c8
I’ve ordered this, and got extra discount with work to make it £250! Does anyone has any experience of This soundbar? Seems to be a curry’s exclusive and there are few reviews, albeit the reviews there are are largely positive. For the money it seems a steal

I'm the same! Just seems too cheap to be true! I've taken some solace from the fact that this bar was priced at £700 as recently as August however, and at £400 up to last month (link). Hopefully it's just an older model they are getting rid of.... The reviews (bar one) all seem good as well

There is a review on Which if anyone has a subscription and can give us an overview of what they say. Just a heads up as to whether they think it's crap! I'd appreciate it thanks
Yeah I’ve decided to take a punt on this as well. Fully expecting it not to be as good as a more expensive LG/Samsung offering but for the price, the fact it offers 4K passthrough and 2 additional HDMI ports,I’m happy to give it a try and see how I get on.
Just a heads up -It’s a “don’t buy” on which.

Which gave the Sonos Beam 49% and poor sound rating, in opposition to most reviews.

And yet most people love their Beam's that they've bought...

Yeah, reviews should only be a guideline really - only way to truly judge it is when it's unboxed and you're listening to it yourself, although I know we're kinda going in blind on this one given the lack of reviews....

Did you installed it? Any feedback ?


No not yet!

I bought a drone too so have been playing about with that lol..!!
Set up mine this evening! It’s amazing, but think my neighbour is going to kill me! The bar is much longer than I thought it would be! Watched a 4K Blu-ray via my Xbox and Dolby Atmos kicked in which was good!

Slightly gutted that I can’t use my Apple TV 4K through the hdmi pass through = no Dolby Atmos (FYI this is due to the hdmi passthrough not supporting Dolby vision - looks a common problem with most atmos soundbars)

for the price its its an awesome bit of kit!

Thanks for your post! A real life positive review then!

Regarding the Apple TV & passthrough-did it accept a HDR signal as opposed to a Dolby Vision one? I’m guessing the ATV and soundbar were fine when it came to an Atmos track though yes?

Guess that means that I’ll just have to have my ATV and 4K player hooked up to the TV to keep DV content available. Not a massive issue though.
The 10% off is back on again until 31/12/18.

HDR works fine through pass through, Dolby Vision doesn’t. Atmos only works if the device is plugged into the hdmi passthrough, so you can’t use the Apple TV and have Dolby vision plus atmos through this soundbar. It’s one or the other basically.

Right, got you.

My B7 OLED should pass Dolby Digital Plus via it's ARC port so hopefully will pass the lossy Atmos so will give it a try when I pick it up tomorrow.

Nice to know it picks up HDR ok though.

I only recently bought my c8 so just been using the built in speakers

Fair enough.

I had the SJ8 and was perfect for the B7. If it wasn’t for the fact that the audio dropped out I’d have kept that. So will be hard to judge another bar under the TV.

Sorry that you didn’t like it. Just not aesthetically pleasing then
The height of the jvc is just under 8cm it just looks to bulky to me and very cheap if you get what I mean

I might just get a LG SK9Y with discount I can get that for £554 plus with a wk7 free speak which I could get £100 for if I sell

Did you test the Atmos on the bar or did you not get that far?

Picking mine up in a bit so will let you know
A quick question- (if someone tested already) will atmos effect work if I watch a movie from my laptop over hdmi 2.0 on my tv?
Or do I need a av receiver in the middle?
So a mixed day.

The soundbar itself is awesome. ATV 4K picked up the bar via ARC and was able to pick up the Atmos tracks I tested (MI Fallout was amazing).

Plugged in my 4K player into the Soundbar and got Atmos fine from there as well.

The two things I needed testing were the Switch and PS4 and if the audio clipped when moving through the homescreens. Both were fine.

But the remote control was a dud. Totally unresponsive. So took it back for a refund and reordered one for delivery tomorrow.

Will definitely be happy with this Soundbar and for £269, it’s well worth the money.
Thanks for the review! Mines not coming under Monday unfortunately
