Yes and its own remote, optical is better though. Means whichever channel you have the tv on the output is through the sound bar.

Does this really switch off after 20mins if the vol isn't adjusted? or, is that a myth?

I have heard that if you use the aux cable but not an issue if you use a digital connection.

Bought this last time it was on offer - fabulous sound , remote is a bit naff as it is flimsy. Simple to install and quite neat, make sure you have the compatible connections on your TV from sound bar to TV - I didn't , connected it through my hard drive recorder auxiliary , my Toshiba TV did not have optical connection. HOT from me.

would like these to hide above kitchen cupboard for music attached to Chromecast audio. Anyone have a real comparison of this quality of sound bar vs creative gigaworks t20/t40 . Also not really important but anyone know how much these would cost to be turned on and ready 24/7 , or is the electricity neglible? Lastly anyone know if the optical source can "wake the speaker up" . cheers.

​I use coax cable and it stays on until I turn it off

Got one from when previously posted and couldn't get the optical cable to fully slot in. It works but it won't fully click in place like it does to the tv, so it's really loose.

Does this have Hdmi pass through? I've no optical or aux out on the TV I want to use it on you see.

Looks like a deal.
Good post.

That's a shame, I had to have a proper search to find mine.

I can't find any dimensions of this sound bar - any ideas anyone? Or can someone measure one they have and report back please?

No problem

How does this compare against the Bush 100W with Built-in Subwoofer?

I have this and it's a great bit of kit. Only downside is when you have it on it shows up blue in middle like OPTI or BT whatever you have it on. Also has a usb on the end to charge your phone great got mine working and it's loud enough for us

got it for 27.50 with some vouchers

same

can I connect this to my computer via BT? I want to get rid of the clutter with my Logitech 5.1 system I use on my desktop
Edited by: "sam1970" 16th Jan 2016

so optical connection from bar to tv and then power cable from bar to socket? my tv has optical so im tempted especially that it switches on and off with the tv and the bar does not need to be switched off separately.

when connected via optical, can I control the sound bar with the tv remote or would I have to use the sound bars own remote?

Looks like it has onboard controls for power,volume and maybe input switching looking at the tesco pics but Amazon reviews say it requires the remote to function.
How tall is it as well? Will it block TV ir receivers if on a stand with TV?

The Amazon reviews seem to be for all 3 KitSound models as some mention HDMI which I don't think this model has at all.
The 3 models are Chorus, Ovation & Upstage 2.1
Thanks OP, I've ordered this Chorus.

I think it's 90 x 7 x 5.5, though not sure which one of the last 2 figures is height. Max of 7cm anyway.
Going by the images, it looks like 7 deep & 5.5 high.

It's 61mm heigh, it has previous/next track buttons onboard as well. It can be used without the remote. The only way you could control it with a TV remote is if you have a one 4 all remote and use learning mode for each function.

Just tried another one thinking the optical port might be at fault, but it's just the same. Doesn't click into place it just sits there as previously mentioned. It still works but might want something to make it more secure.

Someone on Amazon mentioned the same thing but later discovered that there were very small clips that are hard to see on the the connector... once removed the cable fits perfectly... haven't received mine yet so can't confirm but thought it might be useful information

Nah, they're off. It fits nicely at the TV end so I don't think it's the cable. It's still working as it should, but it's certainly not as it should be. Guess I can live with it.

Thanks OP, picked it up today, very pleased with it. Fits perfectly with my 40 inch TV and the optical cable clicks in securely on mine.

Does this turn on automatically when you turn the tv on? I've Looked extensively but would appreciate a comment from someone who has bought one.....

I'm wondering if it could be my cheap cable. just thought if it went in one end it should the other, perhaps I'll try a better known one.

Mine doesn't, but it does turn off after awhile of being turned off.
