Just ordered one of these for our bedroom, it's currently £30 off if you get one of the "Good" condition ones from the Amazon Warehouse. Comes to £96.99

Excellent sound base, very highly rated and at a great price. This knocks the socks off your typical cheap soundbar.

Great price and 100% agree that it is an excellent sound base.

Umm, gotta really read through the "Good" description to make sure you get a pretty good one. Saying that I've never had a bad Warehouse item and even when they say the size of scratches etc, I can barely see them!

Very tempted. Can't decide between this and the Panasonic HTE80 (I've only heard this one and I'm very impressed by it)

​I've only bought a couple of warehouae things before with a 50% success rate (a Web cam and it was in perfect condition and then a Galaxy S7 and it had a chip in the left of the screen (was expecting slight scuffs, but not a chip) they refunded with no issue though).

Was tempted with this deal, but up in price now.

Yeah i nabbed a good one from description. Also ordered Lego Dimensions for my son rated as "Good", was in pretty much perfect condition.

From the research i've done (been looking at sound bases / bars the last two days)

The top two rated (Without going into silly money) were the Denon DHT-110 and the Onkyo LS-T10, they were pretty much a wash but if you wanted stronger base go with the Onkyo and if you want more balanced sound go with the Denon. As this is going into a bedroom, balance was more important for me. I have a KEF 5.1 system with a Yamaha AV Receiver in our living room. I'd personally never use a sound bar or sound base in a main setup. Money is far better spent in a proper 5.1

Panasonic HTE80 was well rated - but slightly below the Denon / Onkyo from reviews and comments i saw.

Saw quite a few people either choosing the Denon / Onkyo over the Bose soundbase or flat out returning the Bose one to get one also.

Still a few "Good" condition ones on the warehouse mate. Remember the £30 off will show when you get to checkout.

Thanks for this. I am always amazed at the quality of sound that can come out of these things. I'm not a big movie guy so a 5.1 would be wasted on me but I do like quality sound and like the idea that you can link via bluetooth to play audio, which from the reviews they rate highly.

​Sorry I prob did not read it right that the £30 will be deducted.

Thanks Mark.

I see the discount now and have one in my basket, but going to think about it for a while as it is going into a living room and would be replacing a 5.1 setup (although not a top of the range one).

How did you find out about the £30 off? Just wondering if there's other stuff in this offer?

Worth paying an extra £8 to get the 'Very Good' condition, surely?

I decided to get one. Went for the Like New at a total cost of £106. Thanks OP. Now I've just got to get a TV!!!

Many of the products over £100 on the warehouse have a £30 off over £100 spent.

Congrats bud. Shame it's been voted cold, shows allot don't know who Denon are ;). Then again, a sound base is for a particular use. Soundbar wouldn't look right on draws unit in our bedroom, also don't really want a sub in our bedroom either.

You'd need to spend a good £150+ with a sub to get a sound anywhere near this Denon.

TBH I hate soundbars. I don't think I've ever had a tv or stand that would accommodate one. Soundbases are much more convenient.

Bought one of these from Amazon a long while ago. Not been a huge success, better than the speakers on Panasonic tv, ok on music, but very poor on dialogue, three sound settings are just a gimmick, cheap plastic construction. We're back with TVs speakers now till we find good all round sound bar or base in our £400 budget.

That's unusual, especially considering the reviews on these from quite reputable places like avforums.

May I ask, with a £400 budget why aren't you considering a separate AV Receiver and 5.1 setup? You could just about get an entry level set for that.

If you want truly great sound though, a proper 5.1 set and AV receiver with HDCP 2.2 for future proofing... You're going need to consider a budget of around £600-£700... My 5.1 speakers alone cost around £800/£900 and I'd considering mid end.. Truly great sound costs I'm afraid.

​i bought it on what I had seen in reviews, trouble is where I live only ones on demo are Panasonic / Sony soundboard which I am not impressed with. Not into all the 5.1 setups, to much involved, and difficulties position all the speakers etc. Liked Sonos play One speakers, but they can't be used with TV. Not heard soundbar ,but it's £600, bit on expensive side and extra for sub woofer. John Lewis is only place with reasonable selection, and easy to return if not liked. May wait and see what they have in boxing day sales. No point trying to listen to one in there shops,to busy and noisy. old Denon is confined to loft for now, may just give it to daughter for new house next year.

The #1 problem with a soundbar is you don't get surround sound, no matter what a manufacture claims (or people) there is only so much sound you can throw effectively against walls. It's nothing short of mind-blowing when you're watching a great action movie and it feels like the bullets are whizzing by your head, or quiet footsteps building from behind you. If people are spending £100-£150, i'd always say go with a standbar / soundbase. If you're however looking to spend more, i'd always recommend trying for a proper 5.1 setup with an AV Receiver even if it means going second hand.

It's incredibly easy to setup a 5.1 and position wall mounts (If you don't want speakers on stands to the rear).

John Lewis really isn't the kind of place to look for sound equipment on the better end of the scale, you're better off with Richersounds / Superfi. If you don't have one near you to demo, i'd personally just take the risk. Q Acoustic, Tannoy or KEF speaker sets paired with a Yamaha, Denon or Onkyo AV Receiver aren't going to disappoint and if they do.. Well you need your ears checking bud

Dependant on your room size but with your £400 budget, i'd personally go for a Tannoy TFX 5.1 speaker set, with a Yamaha or Denon AV Receiver (This is what i got my parents last Christmas and setup in their house). If you don't mind bookshelf speakers and can stretch budget, then Q Acoustic 2000i.

If you want complete minimalist look, then you can't go wrong with KEF T305. I had a set in our living room for around 2 years... Then again, you're looking at around £1500 just for the speakers... Style + Minimal + Sound Quality sets you back.

​Thanks for advice, Richer sounds near us in Exeter and Bristol,although never ever been to either. I did mention surround sound to her indoors,absolutely no chance, two speakers or sound bar and sub base is only choice. Neither of us are into films, DVD or Blu-ray. Most films watched are either Freeview or Amazon Prime. I would want Bluetooth as well.

Well then if you're truly limited in that regard you've got two options:

1. Soundbar
2. Floor standers with AV Receiver (Although i wont go into these as they can be quite big so).

With a budget of £400, you've got the Yamaha YSP-1600 - It's around £350 but in terms of producing a great surround experience from a soundbar (As good as it can be for a soundbar), it pretty much wipes the floor with everything.

Alternatively Q Acoustics Media 4 - at £269 at SevenOaks.

Personally i'd go for the Yamaha, due to the HDMI and surround effect. If you really don't care about creating a surround experience, Q Acoustic.

Both Yamaha and Q Acoustic are pretty much top of any yearly award list for soundbars.

Yamaha YSP-2500 is also around £400 sometimes, so it's worth keeping an eye out.

Denon came today. Very impressive. Even though rated good it came boxed, perfect condition (no dents or scratches) and all accessories / booklets... it actually looks like it's been unused.

Impressed with the sound, has a great balance to it with the bass.

Damn!

After some testing, it's faulty! Oh well thank god for Amazon free returns - They're going to come collect it.

Very annoying since it sounds fantastic - is a clicking / popping sound from it when audio is not being passed via it. Started to happen after 15-20 mins.
