Is this good, compared to JBL Flip 4

Ditto, I have two front Oberons rest DALI Zensor in 7.2 ATMOS config, an absolute treat and a big difference from Yamaha and Bose sound bars.
Denon never heard of this brand, try some known brands like Onkyo :) . The oldies on this forum will get it !
Surely voice control is the only real upgrade
It would most likely be an unresponsive LCD touchscreen with backlight bleed and an unfinished interface. I haven't touched my AV's knobs since I bought it. Giggity.
Yes I think a touch screen display is defo the easy win here, possibly video display ability. RGB for sure!! Without the need to turn tv on or use the app, option to use the display maybe. Several things! But it's one of those areas where innovation is lacking.
Its hardly going to be Amazon 'stopping' a Chrome translate feature. Working fine here
I did; it doesn't. Translates other Amazon sites, e.g. Germany but not Italy. Seems Amazon.it wants you to be Italian speakers.
Yes it's OOS
304 Euro for me ?
I can't find this soundbar at that price on Amazon.IT. The cheapest I've found is 304eur
Isn't avforums a good reviewing site?
I had a subscription once. Maybe 6 months or so. Soon became fairly obvious when compared to various online review places. It's actually really hard to find an impartial reviewer. Can't expect Which? Magazine to cover everything.
Yeah. I agree. I was looking for a more community review type of list that has been compiled based on unbiased reviews or objective reviews like rtings. Rtings has good reviews on sound bars but I’m looking for sound systems overall like surround sound.
The soundbar doesn't get amazing reviews I'd just get the tv without it personally.
I'm still thrilled I got the 65 version for 1499 on that Costco misprice
If you click on this link to a previous hotukdeal on this sound bar, the first comment from a666andy has posted a link he uploaded with the latest firmware for this soundbar, this is what I used and it is the official update you would get by emailing customer service and waiting. hotukdeals.com/deals/jbl-bar-studio-20-channel-soundbar-with-bluetooth-at-bt-3431221
Thanks. I've definitely got the same one in this deal. You saved me from my bricking my soundbar. They sent me the one for 2.1 which has a separate subwoofer
Is there a newer one? Here's the file they sent me: JBL Bar 2.1 is a different model:
Thanks can you remember what the file was called. The one the sent me is called "BAR 2.1 software update (v48).zip" AFAIK bar 2.1 is a different model
I contacted JBL support and they emailed me the instructions and the upgrade file: https://support.jbl.com/gb/en/customer-service/contact.html If you want to check the software version, switch the Soundbar input to Bluetooth, then point the remote control at the Soundbar and press the Night Mode button for more than 5 seconds. The Soundbar will inform you of the software version with a voice message.
Bought - lads birthday prezzie sorted :)
I've owned this for over a year now. Really nice piece of kit. 5 star product!
I have the 2.1 PC Speaker version of this and it's amazing, lighting looks really good and the sound quality is great, pretty tempted by this!
Yeah youre right, you can simply turn them off completely. This is what it looks like with them off:
I think in most cases, with the press of a button, the RGB lights can go off. I'm not an expert, so maybe I am wrong. They do look cool though.
The pic says white amd colour or is the bulb just a warm white one
My pleasure bud
Got one for £21 (excluding postage) by making an offer. Cheers OP.
£10 delivery for Northern Ireland yet they use Royal Mail Jaysus
Cheers Bubs ;)
Thanks for quick answer!
Sounds like we have exactly the same set up lol
Very happy with an older model from about 6 years ago. Connection issues with the sub, but still fantastic sound.
I tried it and no. They say they don't price match with Costco.
Very happy with the older model, going strong for over 3 years together with the Philips TV and Hue lighting, 4k Netflix quality and decent sound, powerful bass, could be better with Dolby processing but hey, it was I believe for £99 on BF deal, so I really can't expect more than it is.
I called them up earlier and asked them to honour the price - managed to get it for £199 with a TV
I suppose they noted the interest and reacted accordingly, that or it was a mistake!
May aswell expire as the crafty folk at RS have put it up to £699 now so you're paying £299 with any 4k TV
That's good to know. I've just had the shipping confirmation for tomorrow which is a pleasant surprise, much faster than I thought it would be seeing as I went with the free option.
Just to update got 2 ordered at 199. But RS have since increased price by 100
From what I read this promotion only applies to the US
Its only 15.99 on iPhone so better signing up through a pc
To eligible for this offer you should already have subscription before 19th May.
I've had this previously so don't expect to get it again
So if you sign up for the free trial, you’ll pay £15.99 at the end of the trial - then I think you become eligible. Cheap way of getting a Nest Mini I recon. Heat!
From what I can see the B is the Black one.
Thanks for pointing out my error. i have deleted the posting.
This was to loud for my grandma
Will it connect to Alexa?
(lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol)
Bought my Anthem Receiver from them, no problems at all.
No doubt great speakers so therefore hot.I dont have any experience of Nintronics,anybody care to advise?.That website doesn't inspire confidence when considering spending £1000.Assuming decent amplifier would these be a worthwhile step above my Acoutic Energy AE1 actives?.
I think it is the pair as showing half price but worth double checking before buying!.
Maybe if you move out the Mrs, space will become available;)
Would it be possible to attach a usb camera and use it to "drop in" on Alexa devices like the Echo Show?
What version of Android does this run?
My parents TV (LG) broke down today, so I'll recommend this to them. Got all the right features and in the budget they want to spend and at ~80 their eyesight aint gonna be the best anyway. :-)
Don’t stop there mate - what did you replace it with ?
I haven't used it so I can't say for sure. I really really dislike Android TV though, it's slow, buggy and laggy, even on the higher end Sony TV's. I've sold my Philips 8204 because the software was atrocious. I wouldn't expect it to be any better on a cheaper TV.
I'm assuming that they will, yes. A lot of the functionality is in the cloud too, so if there are new services in future, there's every chance that these will still be able to invoke them.
But they will continue to work, right?
These are good prices but be aware that there's a strong rumour that Google are going to cease the Google Home line, probably to rebrand as Nest.
https://www.mymemory.co.uk/google-home-mini-smart-speaker-chalk.html Should be £22 and free delivery (not sure about delivery) there was a post here somewhere on June. I've not tried Alexa but I find myself using many Google services so made sense for me. I don't think you can go wrong with any of the choices. Works well with Spotify except for the odd bug with playlist shuffling where it misunderstands the command and the playlist name. I got my nest mini last week and I like it. I wish I had bought a second one from the John Lewis at the time.
The Home Mini (v1) has one advantage in that it can run off a USB cable, so doesn't take up its own plug if you have a multiport charger. You can also power it by a portable phone battery pack (so you could have it anywhere your Wifi reaches). Alternatively both can bluetooth attach to speakers. Some speakers allow you to converse with Google at the press of a button (with mine, I can't hear Google's answers, but the music does switch if it interprets me correctly).
Thanks - worth a punt for less than a tenner.
50 the app says 😵
Back to £100, expired
How many of these can I link together please? Thanks in advance.
Not waterproof, which may be a deal-breaker for some.
Awkward wan k a!
I read a few reviews on this soundbar. Apparently it does a decent job on its own, however, many people will miss not having the bass module which is ~£300 more. On top of that you can add a couple of satellites for an extra £300 on top of it. Needless to say Bose is only compatible with Bose, so if buying this thinking about expansion in the future, bear in mind that this will be quite the investment.
This or samsung Q70R? Any idea!
All you need is an HDMI switch that supports digital optical out. I don't have a wall mounted TV but have 4 different HDMI devices going into 1 HMDI socket on the TV via a remote controlled switch. You have the other devices, and the switch, off wall ( so to speak ) and then just run 1 HDMI and 1 digital optical cable through the conduit. This does, of course, assume your sound bar has digital optical in. If it doesn't then it probably isn't very good ;)
Or get another amp/change tv to one with a One Connect Box as I have one 25mm conduit in the wall see above. But the One Connect Box cable end seems too big to fit down conduit.
my upfront line rental just expired which means my bills have shot up by £19. kept my monthly bills under £30 per month (cause i pay line rental upfront) but now i'm paying close to £50 for 200mb broadband and Talk Anytime More (unlimited calls). Best i was offered was £37 but would have to commit to another 12 months... Not sure if i should just see out my contract until October and then get Voip installed (could work out cheaper) or just take the deal offered... any advice?
Thanks for trying mate. (y)
Can't comment or post. All messages get reviewed before I post because I tried to help out
That I agree. My cables are all sorted for Virgin. Can't get BT or Sky because they only connect it to the front door socket and I hate having cables running everywhere. So I am stuck with them and try to haggle it every year. On a different note other providers can't come close to the speed Virgin is currently providing (obviously depending on where you live) I am on 350MB plan and BT/Sky can only offer me 76MB (but only guaranteed 53MB)
Tried to reneogiate a contract that had had 3 price rises in 12 months for someone who had been a 20+ year customer on top packages for all services. Was told no discount available. Every other provider was cheaper including Sky. Shameful treatment of long term customers. (mad)
True but using the app you can pair these up for stereo or link up to 8 blast or megablast speakers.
Scanning through the deals and noticing the picture for this, I genuinely thought this was a top view of a "modern" coloured coffin
Got one from amazon warehouse and its very big and loud! Inside it sounds a bit disappointing but outside it really does sound great. I did a lot of research before deciding and so far are happy with it. I ended up getting a cheap bose soundlink 2 mini from amazon for indoors, so have both bases covered
Be warned, these won't link with Wonder boom, Boom or Mega Boom UE speakers.
