Just ordered one of these as our Samsung TV has awful sound, bluetooth function will be great as we can play music or spotify from our phones/tablet.

I can vouch for this seller as they were selling the BoBo/Bolero speakers that I bought and posted a deal up on here, they are very quick to post and very helpful.

Grab a Christmas bargain on this brand new Thomson SB300B soundbar/subwoofer combination that includes Bluetooth audio to play music from your iPhone or other smartphone.

The perfect addition for your audio/video system, the SB300B sound bar from Thomson will seduce you with its slim and glossy black design.

Thomson was the great Ferguson, then they sold their electronics business, but now have started it back up again, massive massive company and make lots of Chips/CPU/GPU's etc.

Re-entering consumer electronics:
After years of hiatus, Thomson Consumer Electronics made a comeback just recently and resumed making electronic consumer products such as large and small household appliances, televisions, audio/video machines including its accessories, digital receivers, phones, lightings, health care, and soon cameras, and video surveillance equipments.

Heat! !!

I don't know much about soundbars. Is setting this up as simple as using an optical cable to connect a games console or blu ray player?

The soundar looks great but I'm not sure I could buy one without hearing it first. Good find though OP.

Yeah just plug an optical cable in or use RCA.
Spec looks decent, soundbar has 4 speakers plus the sub. I have tried a few in Currys and they all seem pretty much the same, those without a sub are pretty awful though.

mine says £15 p&p?

Didn't notice that, will amend!

how is this 450watts?
75 x 2 and 150 is 300 watts

From the spec sheet

Amplification : -
Total music output: 450
Front left and right channel output (RMS): 2 x 35
Subwoofer output (RMS): 80
RMS Output 150


So Left and Right are 35watts each RMS, sub is 80watts RMS, so that's 35w+35w+80w=150watts total RMS output. (note there is a discrepency between the PDF spec sheet saying 2xspeakers in the soundbar and the other info saying 4)

OK so that's measured at RMS (root mean squared) which means that it's capable of constantly delivering at those figures, but it would be measured at one given frequency (who knows what frequency and how much distortion is considered acceptable?). So, as sound varies they then can theoretically measure a maxium peak output power of something that could be 2 or 3 times the RMS figure. So in this case they're saying that for one measured moment in time the speakers at full volume could produce a maximum power output of 450watts (referred to as MPO, PMPO or MAX etc)....an example might be a sudden loud crash of drums or explosion sound.

This way of measuring audio is nothing new and many lower spec audio units will show impressive looking power figures that in reality are meaningless. This soundbar may well be able to produce 450watts of sound for 1 second but it would be distorted I'm quite sure....and as I said earlier they only have to show that it can produce a sound at a given frequency, so it could be a 1KHz tone rather than music.

I'm in no way saying this product isn't any good, I don't know, all I can say is that the realistic RMS figures should be taken into account and ignore the MAX / PMPO / figures anyone quotes.

Well happy with mine

Has any body used one of these, any comments on sound quality, volume & the quality of the BT connection? Also would this look alright by a 32" TV

Me, it sounds fantastic, paired fine with my Note 3 and Girlfriends S4, it's as wide as a 40" TV though.
