Astounding Sound

I haven’t used a soundbar before but this proved an excellent buy. The clarity of sound, even onmy 320kbps mp3s. Playing FLAC files however, and the quality is astounding.

Stylish, Great Soundbar with added features!

I love this compact Soundbar. It has a really modern design with an all black finish and a leather / matt design around the sides. The Sub-woofer is really easy to set up as its wireless and automatically pairs to the soundbar with just a power cable needed so can be placed anywhere. The Soundbar is also pretty slim so can slide under your sofa and activate "Sofa Mode" aimed at giving you a more immersive feel however I didn't feel much of the bass when I tried it out. The soundbar also doubles up as a fab bluetooth speaker as well thanks to its built in bluetooth and NFC capabilities. You can also connect it to your internet either via the built in wireless function or the LAN connection on the rear of the soundbar. Once connected the sounder can access any of your networked drives as well as accessing Spotify if you have an account. One thing to note, this Soundbar does not come with an HDMI cable (although does come with optical cable) so its worth investing in one if you want to access the menu's. I love the clarity of sound from the Soundbar and no longer need to rewind a film to hear what the actors / actresses are saying. Music also sounds incredible on this and the fact that it can stream Spotify makes it a winner for this family.

The Amazing Sony HT-MT500 Soundbar

The Sony HT-MT500 is a High-Res-Audio, compact Soundbar with wireless subwoofer. I’ve had it connected for a week, and I’m very impressed not only with the deep, rich audio quality, but also the connectivity options and ease of setup. Out of the box you get the Soundbar and subwoofer, associated power cables, remote control and digital co-ax cable. The setup is straightforward with no technical know-how required. If your TV’s hdmi ports support ARC (it will display ARC next to the port if it does), then simply connect the soundbar to that port using an hdmi cable. ARC stands for Audio Return Channel and means that the TV can receive data from the Soundbar for menu settings, etc and return the TV’s audio back to the Soundbar using the same hdmi connection. However, if your TV does not support ARC, simply connect the Soundbar as above, and use the digital co-ax cable to allow the audio to be sent from the TV to the Soundbar. Note that there is no hdmi cable included in the box. Once connected, plug in the Soundbar and subwoofer and switch the TV input to the hdmi port into which the Soundbar is connected. The setup menu will take you through a couple of single click screens, and the system is setup and ready to use. The final step is to change the TV audio setting from Internal Speaker to HDMI ARC/Coax. The Soundbar can switch between a number of inputs including the TV and home media server. There are also preloaded inputs such as Spotify and chromecast. I was also able to connect my phone to the Soundbar via Bluetooth. All input methods can either be accessed from the menu screen on the TV, or by cycling through the inputs on the remote control. I’ve tried all input methods, and my preference is the chromecast, but I was impressed with how easy they all were to setup, and the audio quality is identical. Now to the most important aspect; the audio quality. In short, it blew me away. The clarity is exceptional, especially in the higher volume range. So too is the rich depth of tone and the powerful bass from the subwoofer perfectly compliments it, particularly when listening to rock in the music mode. Very impressive indeed. I was able to adjust the positioning, output and volume of the Soundbar and subwoofer independently to give me the optimised output for my living room setup. It is also possible to locate the subwoofer beneath a sofa (if there is enough clearance space) and activate the Sofa mode, which delivers bass you can feel through the sofa. The system also supports a speaker network so you can play content from compatible wireless Sony speakers throughout the home or in a wireless surround sound setup. Unfortunately I’ve not been able to test this feature as I don’t have any compatible speakers I can connect. However, I’m so in awe of the sound from it, I guess it won’t be long before I purchase some. Not only does it sound good, but also looks good. Most importantly though is that the Soundbar is only 50cm wide. Some of the other Soundbars I looked at were up to twice that size for little added power. So all in all, this is an outstanding audio system, which I am extremely pleased with. It’s audio quality, connectivity options and compact design make this an ideal Soundbar worth serious consideration. You’ll not be disappointed.
