Try get one with a subwoofer, consider this the treble and where it says 120w it's 60w speakers either side which is perfectly acceptable for watching a film.

thanks can I pick your brains lol! ​so it's better to get one which comes with a separate sub? should I get this and get a separate sub or does it have to be a bundle, if you have any recommendations that would be great!

This is a *very* good soundbar for this price. One advantage it has is it can output to a subwoofer of your choice. By that I mean a 'seperate' subwoofer, the kind you buy from a Hi-Fi shop.

There are two very large advantages with this over a bundled sub+bar system as the above comment suggested. The first is you only need to add the bass if you want it. The second is that because this is a high quality bar, and a separate sub is by definition high quality (very hard to find bad ones), you are pretty much garuanteed to end up with a much better package going this way than **any** bundled package you can find on the web

As I said in previous post, better to buy seperate items not a bundle for best value for money (although its gonna cost a little more than the average bundle so your wallet is a factor here.

I have a suggestion for a sub, simply the cheapest good one i could find in a couple of minutes, from a good brand, and has the important fact of an adjustable crossover frequency - the upper frequency at which the sub begins to output sound. The idea is you can tune this perfectly for your soundbar so it will pair seamlessly.

Ordered - Thanks op
Will this be any better than a Yamaha YAS101 because I purchased that model after reading good reviews and in all honestly it was crap and went straight back to John Lewis.
My current setup the TV sound runs through a pair of Creative gigaworks T40's that are miles better than the Yamaha 101 but if this will be better I might go for one because of the Bluetooth built in.

No this is strictly only to be purchased by a third timer.
I bought a YSP-5600 at xmas, and can highly recommend it. Much more expensive though

Mine came with the separate wireless subwoofer.

Easily the best option if you can't have physical speakers all around the room.

Have a look at LG soundbars with wireless subwoofers. Whathifi and Which rates them very well. You can demo them at John Lewis or Currys - link them to your phone via Bluetooth and have a listen to any music / video you like.

what do you mean by first one?

are you the type that likes to "upgrade" often? if so then I wouldn't buy this but just buy an "end game" solution from the start.

the yamaha YSP range is the decent range, the YAS range is the budget range.

I owned a yamaha yas 101 and it was very good for the money (which isn't much in the world of soundbars) but i now own a ysp-1400 and it's miles better but again that is also far from an end game setup.

yamaha is the make I would go for though and buy the most expensive you can afford. price does indeed correlate with quality when it comes to reputable manufacturers like yamaha.

spending £150 on a sub for a £100 soundbar would IMO be stupid.

if your going to spend that kind of money buy a 5.1 package or a 3.1 separates setup.

It should be better because it's the newer model. Otherwise it would be stupid for them to release a newer model which was indeed worse.

It however would be no match for a decent set of 2.0 or 2.1 speaker setup. soundbars are designed for those that don't have space or want seperate speakers.

since you have seperate speakers. you may as well look at buying an AVR (with bluetooth built in) and a 5.1 package or 2 floorstanders and a centre speaker.

​you seem to have misunderstood the market, subs are for people that don't want the clutter. And this is NOT a £100 bar... Hence the heat.
Price if sub is irrelevant as quite frankly a separate is difficult to find much cheaper than what I linked.

​the quality of the sound on this is very high, but is stereo sound (doesn't have yamaha sound projection, but neither did your 101).

One downside which eventually forced me to choose the yamaha soundbase instead is that the bass on this is severely lacking, so really needs a separate sub to be provided

THIS CANNOT PRODUCE A 7.1 SURROUND SOUND EXPERIENCE! It isn't bad for a cheap sound bar but didn't kid yourself with the marketing BS.

If you want a wireless sub this soundbar likely isnt a good match for you, the output from the bar is wired. I suppose you could get some kind of adapter for both the sub output and the woofer input but that seems...too much to bother with.

The best options for a wireless sub are either a bundled option, or to go with one of the super expensive brands like sonos

What do you mean? Subs are for people that want more bass

Edited by: "rev6" 28th Jan 2016
Great price, we had one reserved on an offer at Richer Sounds last year and they sold it to someone else in the 20 minutes it took me to get to the shop.

In the end I went for a Samsung - around £130 which has been great.
