Would this connect to an lg tv?

Original Poster

connects to any tv using optical lead which is supplied in box unlike some

I'm interested in a soundbar, but with an inbuilt sub. Any suggestions? Budget of up to £350. Looked at the Bose Solo 15, but something stopped me pulling the trigger..... Any independent product tests available for built in products?

No HDMI output. RRP is overpriced. On Sony's website for £109. Still a good deal though. hea

Heat added.

Can anyone explain the Benifits of an HDMI output on a Soundbar please?

Newer tvs will have an ARC hdmi socket. That allows control flow either way from the soundbar and tv. It can also pass 5.1 to the soundbar over hdmi. The majority of tvs, afaik, down sample 5.1 input to PCM2.0 over their optical connection.

That sounded so Chinese to me"/

I have this system and IT.IS.STUNNINGLY.GOOD.VALUE. FOR.THE.MONEY

It works with all modern TVs with optical out. Don't be fussy about wanting the same make sound bar as your TV. That's just silly. This is the best sub-£100 speaker set money can buy. Bearing in mind the hundreds of pounds people spend on TVs for picture quality, this is absolutely a worthy investment for sound quality. Buy it and enjoy it

I have this too, cost me 79 quid a few months ago. perfect for a medium sized room. I have a 50 inch led and it is more than loud enough with a crisp sound. so much better than the terrible in built speakers on my tv

Now £91.63

As above. Price gone up. Got mine delivered weds. Great deal while it lasted. Please expire thanks for hot votes everyone

Does this play DVD's or do I need something else to do that?

You will need a dvd player to play dvd's

Seriously, 60w output?! What's the point? Cold.

Sound quality will still be better than your telly, all that matters. Plus the bonus of connecting your phone to this is quite convenient for music.

Please forgive my ignorance.
Is it possible for a sound bar to be controlled by the TV remote, so that it responds to the volume control buttons without using its own?
If the HT-CT60BT cannot do this, is there any other model/make that can?
Does it have to be the same brand TV to do this?

I've been looking a for a surround sound solution forever, thought soundbars were generally considered to be crap and are also a bit unsightly. I like the idea of Bluetooth to play Spotify through. Is there anything similar to the onkyo htx22hd around now, that looks like a pretty decent setup, sub and receiver in one and 2 speakers. Just no Bluetooth in that

Barely. I really don't think it's worth spending £80 for 60w. But each to their own.

Paid £85 for this back in January. We already had a Sony Bravia, and the remote for this soundbar has input, standby, channel change and volume control for the TV too, but the TV remote doesn't control the soundbar.

Don't listen to those saying 60W isn't powerful enough or worth it - the sound on this is excellent, and certainly more than loud/powerful enough for the average lounge, where the main TV may be sited. The Bluetooth connection also works well.

I second this, got it connected to a Samsung TV and it's plenty loud enough. Bluetooth connectivity is really handy for Spotify, etc!

Really want a sound bar but seem to have so many Remotes already!

Picked one up yesterday from Gumtree for £50. Well pleased.

Discontinued now!

Any manufacturer specific system (e.g Panasonic Viera Link) works like that.
