Title: Sound Bars
Post by: The Artist Formerly Known as Audrey on Friday, August 11, 2017, 16:41:05
Just bought a new TV - nothing flash, just a 43" Sony 4K.

Are sound bars worth the money and do they enhance the 'experience'?

You moved up to Liverpool?

Better than shit bars I imagine.

The sound on most TV's is shit - so yeah definitely worth it if that's your thing. I got one a few years ago - LG one. Not the best but the sound is decent, and the wireless subwoofer with it is pretty damn powerful

I've wondered the same. I looked at the Sonos and they're 600+

However, I live in a two bed house and the sound think a sound bar would be OTT until I moved to a bigger place.

The TV was 'only' 850 so spending over half as much again on a sound bar seems a bit much.

Well, looking at all the 1000 and upwards TVs in there it was a 'humble' one.

Was thinking the same - this one seemed to get good reviews for a lower-mid-range...

Yes definitely.

Got a Bose one. Well worth it.

No issues with making out the mumbling on BBC dramas!

I've got a Yamaha deffo worth the money and a decent one will cost around 250 to 300

I find them a bit bass heavy with little mid range and the surround sound with subtitles is terrible.
