Just bought a new TV - nothing flash, just a 43" Sony 4K.

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

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

"Fools," said I, "You do not know:
Silence, like a cancer, grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you.
Take my arms that I might reach you."

But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon God they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
And the words that it was forming
