Soundbars are a discrete option that save on space yet still pack a punch when it comes to sound. They fit alongside your TV stand and some can even be mounted onto your wall depending on where your TV is mounted. There are wireless models too, so no messy cables are needed, providing a compact solution for both movie and music lovers alike.
What else do I need with my Soundbar?
Soundbars need a little help to deliver the rich bass that completes the audio experience you desire. This comes in the form of Subwoofers, as they’re known and they supply the low frequency you need for an authentic bass sound. More often than not they’re included with your Soundbar set - if they aren’t, it’s worth investing in one.
How much should I spend?
This is obviously completely down to you. You can spend as little as £150, or as much as £1000 and upwards. More expensive models will give you a stronger output, of around 250-450W, while you can expect under 100W of power from cheaper Soundbars. A strong output will give your audio a wider range, though just be careful as this doesn’t necessarily mean better quality. Keeping this in mind, if you have a smaller room, it wouldn’t be wise to buy simply on audio power alone. Also look at any features like Bluetooth compatibility that will enhance your experience and decide what features apply directly to you.
Where do I put my Soundbar?
The beauty of Soundbars is their diminutive size, which means they’re not an eye sore and don’t come with a lot of baggage (in other words, they’re almost completely free of cables). You can place them in a number of locations around your TV – on top of the set, on a shelf underneath, on the floor in front of the TV or even on the wall.
