This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

I’ve been on the lookout for a decent sound-bar around the £300 mark for a while, decided to pull the trigger on this.

Gets decent reviews other than some complaining about the text display on the sound-bar being distracting, hopefully won’t be an issue.

Blurb from site....

What's the main difference between Dolby Atmos and Dolby digital please?

What's the main difference between Dolby Atmos and Dolby digital please?


Atmos bounces sound off the ceiling to make the soundscape seem fuller; it's a nice feature and worthwhile if you have a massive TV (I would say 50"+) Your audio source will need to support Atmos as well

The effect probably won't be brilliant on a low end Atmos soundbar like this but it's best checking reviews
I'm looking for a soundbar too but I'm struggling to make a decision, what would be the best for under £300? It's to pair with a Sony xf9005 if that makes a difference.

At the moment I'm looking at;
Samsung hw-ms650
Sony ht-x9000f
Sony ht-x8500

What would be best out of these, or is there any better ones I should look at?

Thanks
Wait for the new LG sound bars which should be coming out in next few weeks. They will support earc which will mean higher bit rate and lossless sound. I’m personally looking at getting LG SN9YG 5.1.2 Channel High Res Audio Sound Bar with Dolby Atmos® and Google Assistant Built-In or the LG SN9 for 5.1
Better than a beam?

Had a quick look, seems an impressive choice! It is currently £500 though, which may come down with new models coming out. I went with the Philips as it suited me and will compliment my philips tv.
Fair play mate. I would do the same and match the TV brand... hope you enjoy it
Unless there is a unified design style (and that's your main buying reason?) there is no reason to choose the same brand bar/TV.
Always look at the sound quality and then the features you need!

Even pairing by Bluetooth isn't a great feature if it's a brand only feature. Just use cables! Less room for sync problems

I pulled the trigger on the sony ht-x8500 for £260 so I'll see how that goes.

Agree, sound quality comes first. Also Bluetooth should be considered as last resort since as far I am aware it cannot transmit all fancy sound formats. HDMI ARC or if to be within latest tech is eARC. Unfortunately philips are like year or two behind when it comes to their sound or vision tech. I would guess earlier mentioned sony ht-x8500 at £260 is more future proof option with some extended features compared to this philips.
So the Sony or the Philips?? I’ve been looking for a sound bar to go with my LG C9. Philips seems a good price with the free delivery as well. I keep looking at the Sonos Beam but still not convinced it’s the best option.
Think I will go with the sony ht-x8500. Seems to review very well and in my budget. I did consider the sonos beam as I have some sonos products already. However I really just want this to improve TV movies and gaming sound so the sony sounds like the better option for that.

So is that better than the HT-XF9000 please?

I have to be honest and say not sure. They seem very similar but the 9000 has the sub with it. My preference is an all in one system hence the 8500 option. Overall it would be better with a sub but my bank balance and neighbours may not agree.

Thanks didn’t realise the ht-x8500 had no sub seems strange that John Lewis have the 9000 at £294 and the 8500 at £299

Interesting, maybe there is more difference than I realise.

Cheers for that. Father in law picked one up for me this afternoon. Just watched episode 1 of white lines and it sounded great. Happy with the purchase.
