Philips HTL5160B/12 3 – Changed my life

Wow – the sound quality is so impressive and the sub is awesome. . My neighbours may soon hate me :).

This is a great sounbar and recommended on a number of hifi/audio sites. Well made, good quality and looks fab. What you expect from the philips brand i suppose. A great price too and cam with reqiured leads including a toslink.

Very good sound with subwoofer. Could be a little louder as i reached the maximum volume without and distortion, which indicates philips were being carefully restrictive. The thump the sub gives is a real treat. Not as powerful as my stereo system. For what it is, i’m happy the sound is nice and clear. You can turn the display off by putting the night mode on and you will only have a white solid light on. I hate distractions with all these soundbars that can only be dimmed or lights that are to bright in a dark room as your attention is focused towards that instead of the movie your trying to watch. Philips can still do better i think. The solid white light is still to bright for me and the sound could do with a bit more power and go louder without a problem i believe. The price was the main reason i purchased this soundbar as it was within my budget without paying to much for something like a sonos.

I spent what felt like years researching and eventually deciding upon the philips htl5160b/12. I got it open box, at a pretty decent discount, but would pay full price for it after my experience with it. Some things i really like:- it’s slim and light, super easy to mount under my tv. – the remote is simple to use, with quick access to night mode (great for when the baby is sleeping), and all the other controls. – the surround sound is great, and i often find myself looking over my shoulder when the sound bounces off my walls. – the streaming capability is also a great plus, but not 100% needed as i have it connected to my echo to play music with my voiceoverall it’s a great speaker – much better bang for your buck than the top of the range bose or sonos playbar.

I’m not an audiophile, but it does add a richness of sound to my television over what tv speakers can do. The soundbar itself is a little lacking in oomph, but it is made up for by the subwoofer which is brilliant. I’m still impressed that the subwoofer works wirelessly. Good, but might have expected more overall for the price.

Honestly the best thing i’ve ever bought. Completely transformed any film or video game, and amazing for music too.

  • Excellent sound, slim and light – easy to mount!
  • Very happy indeed, great for the price, should go louder really
  • This is a great sounbar and recommended on a number of HiFi/Audio sites

Sharp HT-SB150 120W 2, Slim sound bar.

In general the price of soundbar systems have got more affordable over the past couple of years. This sharp ht-sb150 is a lower priced but affordable product. The first thing that is striking is that it is designed for the larger sized tv, outsized for anything less then 49”. The box it arrives in is long. Wiring in is straight forward with a hdmi cable though there is an optical socket, a line in jack and of course the power supply. There is also a usb socket but this is to be used to upgrade the device and cannot be used for charging. The sound bar has an led display on the front showing connectivity, there is a standby switch, source switch and volume control on one end of the device. The remote control is basic and feels a bit cheap but considering the price point of the product i’d not be expecting something gold plated. There is a preset equaliser button with movie , music and news. Bluetooth paring is straight forward using either the buttons on the sound bar or the remote control.

Great sound brilliant accessory to our tv.

The sound bar has a substantial weight and the build quality is good. For connections you get hdmi arc, optical, 3. Unlike some of sharp’s other models, you actually get an led display, which allows you to see the volume level instead of just hearing it. On the unit the controls are on the side though, which i’m not keen on. The bar is a bit too long for smaller tv screens in my opinion. The audio quality is decent, but not great. The main problem is a lack of bass. It’s just not possible to get substantial bass from a single unit like this, not for this kind of price at any rate.

Key specs for Sharp HT-SB150 120W 2.0 Slim Wall Mountable Soundbar System with Bluetooth, HDMI ARC/CEC, LED Display & Remote Control – Black:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.

  • At 92cm wide the HT-SB150 is ideal for large TVs with a screen size of 49″ and above (but would work just as well for 40-43″ TVs); perfect for the living room/lounge, kitchen diner or cinema room
  • A slim, low profile of just 6cm allows the sound bar to fit neatly underneath the screen of most TVs and monitors without obscuring the picture. The LED display clearly shows which mode is selected
  • Bluetooth-in functionality allows you to wirelessly stream audio content from your Smart TV, tablet, smartphone/mobile (or other Bluetooth enabled smart device) to play through the Soundbar speakers
  • The soundbar system can be easily operated with the supplied remote control, buttons on the unit itself or you can even use the TV remote when connected with the convenient HDMI ARC/CEC functionality

Comments from buyers

“Four Stars
, The sound
, A DECENT QUALITY BUDGET SOUND BAR FROM SHARP THAT TICKS MOST BOXES

Dissappointed in the volume, but otherwise ok.

I like this sharp sound bar, it fit nicely along side my 49′ television. The slim low profile is just 6cm which allows the sound bar to fit neatly underneath the screen of my and most tvs. Without obscuring the picture. This sharps sound bar is compatible with any television that has a hdmi, digital optical audio (s/pdif) or 3. 5mm auxiliary (aux) connection, making it a handy bit of kit. The bluetooth-in function allows you to wirelessly stream all your audio content from your smart tv, tablet and mobile, in fact any bluetooth enabled smart device will work well with this item. I connected my devices to the sound bar in minutes and have had no issues with the sound bars performance. In my opinion the sound produced is super compared to the price of the bar. In the average living room with average wall thickness, i would say that if you need a sound bar that won’t have your neighbours calling out the sound police every time you switch on you television or music, then this sharps sound bar will tick all your boxes, therefore it’s 4* from me folks.

I’m not that impressed with the sound from this big speaker. I’ve had speakers a quarter of the size with more depth of bass. This test item was missing the wires to connect directly to the television or other appliances so i can only comment on wi-fi. As you would expect from a speaker of this size, it can only be used with an electrical plug. Sound at high volume lacked depth and richness, and for me isn’t really good enough for music, although it may be perfectly acceptable for television. I rate this a 3 out of 5 for average performance.

There are definitely going to be situations where this is a good choice but none come to mind immediately. For the money it’s good enough, but compared to the sound from the 4 or 5 year old lg smart 40′ tv that i have, there isn’t that much of a difference. If you have a cheaper tv, or one that’s physically smaller (the bigger the tv it tends to be the larger the speakers they can sneak in) and have been suffering from weedy sound or mumbled dialogue then it could improve both volume and clarity. But, for just a few quid more you can get essentially the same thing with a sub-woofer which will really round out the bass notes.

Good value, good high range sound but form factor limits bass output and response. Connects well to tv or other sound sources, works well for smaller tvs who lack much bass output but didn’t add much to the sound experience of a larger tv’s native speakers. Very easy to use and work with.

LG Electronics LG SJ7 Flex Soundbar -, Brilliant sound bar

After buying my new lg 4k tv, i needed a soundbar to improve the sound quality. I decided on lg sj7 flex soundbar. Its small enough to fit infront of my tv without hindering the view of the screen, it can separate do you can have x2 towers either side of your tv stand, and then i found out that one of them contains a lithium iron battery and can work as a portable sound speaker for when your in the garden etc this was so good, i bought the same one for my parents who have hearing difficulties and not they can hear the tv much better than before .

Love the fact i can separate the soundbar and use as a rear surround speaker with no wires, also the bluetooth synch to my lg tv works great, the sound is not blow your sock off amazing but for the price paid it is fine.

The product is very good but in the box i have missing all 3 figure 8 ac adaptor which i was very annoyed with but other than that the sound bar is very good.

” LG Soundbar to buy for my newly acquired LG Smart 4K TV
, Multi Tasking Sound Bar ! Does more than I wanted it to !
, Love the fact I can separate the soundbar and use

After a few research as to which lg soundbar to buy for my newly acquired lg smart 4k tv, i decided on lg sj7 flex soundbar. It does exactly what it says on website. I was transfixed to my television when i listened to the sound with the soundbar on. I have tried all the different suggested mode and each case i have been so impressed with the quality and precision of the soundbar. This is an excellent purchase for this product considering the price with similar products. The bluetooth function works well with my iphone and my wife samsung galaxy s8. By the way, my wife loves it and play a game with me switching the music on her phone on in the kitchen whilst my iphone is in use with the soundbar. At the moment, i have not noticed any downside to this product.

It’s flexible in its usage, sounds and looks good.

Had a lot of soundbar s this is one of the best.

Brilliant sound bar, used primarily as a sound bar but is nice to have the choice of anything really, even a stand alone bluetooth speaker.

Samsung curved soundbar – samsung sound bar

Great for ones who don’t want a full setup and speakers cluttering the room. Sound is spot on and i also added the wireless surround speakers this makes it even better. Makes my bedroom tv sound perfect and lots better than the internal tv speakers.

Purchased this soundbar to enhance the quality of sound coming from my t. Little bit expensive (nearly £400). Easy to set-up with hdmi connection to blu-ray, x-box 1, samsung televisionsound and volume is brilliant. Extra remote is something i could do without. No space for the ones i’ve gat already. No issues with this purchase.

Purchased this after buying samsung 55 inch tv and added a pair of rear speakers. Fairly pleased with overall sound compared to just tv speakers. Price seemed reasonable at time of purchase which was enhanced by £100 cashback offer from samsung. Configuration was initially a bit fiddly especially when adding surround speakers but got the hang of it in the end.

Great sound quality and good value for money arrived very quickly.

Excellent sound and quality, came with uk 3 pin plug, also very good customer service and delivery from reliant direct.

Great product, great communication, great price, easy to set up, next day delivery.

  • Great purchase!
  • Good product
  • Sound Advice

Omg received this in under 24 hours of ordering. Obviously i plugged it straight in (2 wires idiot proof) and bamm. I’ve got a qled tv and this has made it go from incredible to totally awesome. And the price is a total bargain too.

Purchased this item based on various positive independent reviews albeit with a little trepidation as in my previous house i had a full 5. 1 surround sound system and wondered if i’d be disappointed. Here’s my honest assessment: if i had a bigger house / room and the money i’d still opt for a full surround sound system, probably with atmos, to get the full dolby cinema experience but what i love about this samsung soundbar is that it’s sleek (titan option is a sort of gunmetal / dark grey / black finish that looks great); avoids my apartment-sized room from looking cluttered with speakers all over the place; the sound is very good indeed and although it doesn’t shake the floors and walls it’s very, very pleasing and overall i’m delighted with it. It’s also very good with music as well as movies and speech is remarkably clear.

Excelent christel clear sound. Words, music base sound is fabulous. Unfortunately the sound bar does not come with any cables to connect it to the television. All you get is a plug in cable to connect to mains electricity. Have to go and purchase an optical cable before i could connect sound bar to tv.

Decent sound when turned up. Bass is pretty remarkable for something of its size too. Needs mor intelligent linking between samsung q series sets though. Often reverts to using tv speaker and goes into standby quickly. Hopefully, this is something that will get better with updates.

Forget bose and sonos this soundbar is cheaper and just as good.

Best soundbard hands down for the price(special when paired with he wireless surround speakerss).

Very good product more than i expectedbeautiful sound and sound modes very helpfull. Especially tha smart sound mode.

Have it connected with optical cable.

Very happy with this order,quick delivery all smoothly connected and sound is something else. Really if you thinking about good product for your tv go for it. I have connect with my smart tv and router via wifi nd i didn’t have even one disconnection or faults.

I purchased this soundbar as a replacement to my logitech 5:1 speaker system and to save space. This is a premium product, it looks good, has amazing sound quality and bass. It also integrates really well with my samsung smart tv. Totally recommend this soundbar, you wont regret it.

Picture on amazon shows a separate sub, but actually this product doesn’t have one which is misleading. Despite not having a sub, the bass is still fairly good considering. This is a good soundbar at this price point, you would need to spend a lot more to get better.

As its from germany i needed a plug adaptor.

Excellent product with brilliantly clear sound but probably does need a sub-woofer (especially if you’ve been used to one previously).

It is like having your own cinema. My children absolutely loved it.

Power Output: 450W

I don’t have the all in one with the sub-woofer, so i cannot attest to that. But the soundbar itself packs an insane amount of bass in it. The modes are amazing, bluetooth works flawlessly. It has spotify support which is a must for me. The smart mode picks the best sound from what you have on but you can change that at any time to music, clear voice, movie etc. The surround mode works really well for blu ray movies and ps4 games. It has hdmi arc support so you can plug it into a tv that may not come with coax connectors like mine. I think soundbars are definitely a luxury but you really do get what you pay for.

I received the samsung hw-ms 651 straight soundbar and works perfectly with my series 6 samsung t. V unit came with a 3 pin plug and optical lead and what a great sound throughout. The delivery was excellent by parcel force who kept me to date with the arrival of delivery.

I recommend this product even though the sound quality is not up to the standard that i expected. For any one who does not need to have high sound it would do them fine.

Wow love this bar, the sound is awesome and would not go back to just tv sound.

Arrived 6 days after order european model but in good working order and sounds great – no uk electric cable supplied , so had to take one of my samsung tv . Not good supplying to the uk market and i would like a replacement uk power cable please – surely uk delivery address should give you a clue . Order from jl as now same price and with 3 yr guaranteee.

Don’t expect anything exciting without the additional subwoofer or at low volumes. While the sound is clear, if you’re after some decent kit, you’re better off spending more for something which can deliver better. Getting it to work with alexa is nearly impossible, so forget about it.

Well chuffed with this soundbar. Also bought the wireless subwoofer and 2 r6 surround speakers. Quite fiddely to setup all together but you must update firmware asap. But great standalone soundbar to compliment my samsung 65 inch tv.

4K UHD Passthrough: No

Technically downgraded from surround sound setup, but the lack of wires everywhere and the quality of sound this gives, it feels like an upgrade.

Why the main photo has a sub woofer when the actual order does not come with one?.

LG Electronics LG SJ3 Soundbar -, Recommended

Dialogue not especially clear as i’d hoped but a perfectly good soundbar nonetheless.

Absolutely spot on – best buy for a long time, would have no hesitation in recommending this to anyone thinking about it. We mainly sought greater volume for when watching box sets & films – this product delivers that and more, haven’t managed to stay in same room to test how high the volume goes.

Did the usual research prior to buying a sounder and was going to settle for the sj3, but this came up in the black friday sales, well what a bargain for the quality. Depth of sound and build quality is amazing for the price. Even the mrs is impressedmy only gripe is the lack of mounting holes on the rear so had to do some shopping around to find a suitable bracket to hold the sound bar from the base to hang from my tv.

Comments from buyers

“Excellent Sound
, May be a bit chunky for the latest Tvs.
, Absolute Best Buy

Great value, bass is excellent, no problems with wireless sub.

This is fantastic better than i expected really impressed.

A good sound and easy to use but you do get what you pay for.

Easy to set up but the leads are extras. Sound is pretty good and works well on my lg computable tv.

Fantastic quality well impressive.

As sound should be , be as bassie or as cinematic as u need and as for set up .

Sound is fine – happy with purchase. Made the tv sound much better like being at the cinema.

Used to have a surround system but got annoyed with the cables and having speakers all round the room. The sub is connected via wireless and for the price (bought 18 months ago) i am extremely pleased. Works as well as the surround sound system did without the mess and is thoughrolly loud enough to annoy my neighbours. Also has bluetooth so can play music from my phone through it. Will be out of date by now so any left should be a real bargain. Ps i have it connected to the tv via an optical cable, could use the bluetooth functionality but the cable gives better sound with no interference or dropouts. Highly recommend this lg sound bar at the price i paid 18 months ago, should be cheaper now and if it is it will be a steal.

My only dislike is that the mounting screws are at the bottom and not the back of the soundbar.

Excellent sound used to play amazon music from phone and ipad love it.

It is good that it syncs with my lg smart tv.

Very good product, a real pleasure to listen to the tv.

Great sound, easily connects to the tv, does need optical cable if your tv doesn’t have a bluetooth. Now i cannot believe i went without it so long:).

Bought as a treat for myself as tv sound is not very good and this bar works a treat. Good sound and easy to install.

I bought this as a gift for a friend who is delighted with the sound quality extremely easy to set up too.

Best with lg tv as connects seamelessly.

A well priced quality sound bar. Sub woofer gives great bass and is so neat being wireless to the sound bar. Only 3 cables needed, 2 of which are the power and the third the optical to the tv, surprisingly not supplied but you can buy them cheaply. Would definitely recommend, as good as other top branded makes. Looks great with my matching lg tv.

This was an upgrade from my 5. Very neat and good all round sound easy to connect to all devices.

Nice sound and works well with lg tv turning on and off automatically with the tv. Sound is a step up from tv alone.

So much better that the tv speakers on my lg 55′ tv. Great clarity at volume and an easy setup, albeit slightly fiddly on the sound syncing.

Excellent sound works brilliantly would recommend.

Very happy with these for the money.

It was a real task trying to find these speakers (swa 8500) which were recommended by samsung to use with my recently purchased samsung soundbar. I originally purchased the swa 8000 but they simply would not connect. I ordered these correct ones and they have been shipped from germany to the uk in 4 days in which i am impressed. The speakers were also checked that the correct uk plug was attached before they shipped. The bluetooth unit connected first go and now my living room is immersed in sound. A great addition to the set up. Thank you to technik trade for the great service and great speakers.

Good addition to samsung curved sound bar to enhance surround sound , very pleased with them.

The service from tvs and more was excellent. The speakers are ok but not as good as my old defunct surround system.

Samsung SWA-8500S/EN Wireless Rear speaker Kit for M550, M4500, M450, M360 – black : Its a product hard to find but im glad. Good sound and sent quickly.

Good addition to sound bar ,connection was easy.

Amazing but subtle compliment to my samsung soundbar. Great service from seller also (wrong power supply sent – quickly rectified with one email and dispatched next day).

Well worth getting it to complete your sound system.

Ok but very small speakers, but ok for the price.

The rear speakers operate by blue tooth from the samsung sound bar which transmits to the speakers reciever which is connected by wires to the speakers. The speakers give an exellent surround sound and are well worth the purchase.

Excellent fast prime delivery, sound quality combined with soundbar hw-m360 compared to tv alone 100%. I’m sure there are better systems out there but i’m sure you’ll pay a lot more for them. My only issue was pairing the rear speakers with the sound bar. After spending over an hour talking to samsung techs that failed to help and told me to contact a local samsung licensed engineer to sort the issue out. I carried on searching online and finally found the fix. Issue being the volume button is touch sensitive when putting sound bar in id set mode. ( i was pushing too hard) all sorted now.

Sonos PLAYBASE Wireless Home Cinema Sound Base : Best sound ever

Very good addition to my sonos system. It adds good quality sound to the tv and another outlet for streaming. The only caveat is that when you set it up you need to have your pc/mac in the same room as there is a lot of interaction to make sure the tv remote controls the sound properly.

There are better sounding systems (bought this with full theatre setup) but not by much and there thousands more. This is incredible for the money.

Pretty easy to set up, although getting the optical cable in the right way up is easier said than donedoes the job beautifully. Fills out the characteristically weak sound of an modern tv without overdoing it on the bass rumble. Plus, when you’re not watching tv it networks with all the rest of your sonos gear for a house-full of sound. A little on the pricey side, for what it is. And you’re paying for good build quality, slick networking and elegant design.

Linked up to the sub and two play ones for booming cinema experiences.

Excellent product, can’t go wrong with sonos brilliant company.

SONOS PLAYBASE Wireless Home Cinema Sound Base, White : Great sound and easy to set up. It blends in perfectly and is a massive improvement in the sound quality from the tv. . The quality of dialogue is great. Just missing that really deep rumble. If you want that cinema experience you will need a sub woofer. . I bought a couple of sonos play 1s to use elsewhere in the house but have had a play this weekend and linked them a surround sound speakers to the playbase. . The immersion was briliiant especially in action scenes.

Was looking for speaker which didn’t take lot of space and unobstrutive,playbase sits under tv looks great,easy set up out of box,great sound with movies, and easy connect spotify etc,bought when on offer £550 at this price good buy,would not have bought at full price,.

Wasn’t as easy to set up as intended but customer service/support were ready to help and fix the multiple issues. The product itself was as expected in terms of build quality and sound. Superior to most on the market. Is it worth the money, time will tell but so far so good.

I bought this with some trepidation but i went with the great reviews and took a leap of faith and so glad i did. It alongside its little sonos friends and sub fill my home with beautiful sounds everyday.

I was reluctant to pay full price but the black friday deal of £100 off made it more palatable. As well as a high end 2 channel music system we have a sonos system in various rooms around the house so this seemed like a perfect partner to what we already had. Due to the big 2 channel system we lack the space to accommodate a full av speaker system. The unit comes beautifully presented in its box and a cover wrap (think apple style packaging). It sits perfectly under our panasonic tv on a corner stand, looking smart but very discrete. It exudes high quality and has a heft and solidity that justifies the price. Nothing rattles, creaks or resonates and it can deliver a surprising amount of sound level and presence. It was simple to set up using the supplied toslink cable. The only issue we had was trying to disable the tv speakers while being able to control the playbase volume with the tv remote. On our tv we had to go into ‘hotel’ mode and do it that way, but newer tvs will perhaps be easier.

And its versatility via iphone and ipad makes it a great investment.

What a great bit of kit and the base is awesome.

For the most part, this is superb. A very easy setup, it looks great and holds our tv above it. The sound is mostly excellent, and frankly in a small room the bass is good enough not to need a sub as well. But you really need to be sitting directly in front of the playbase to get the most out of it. And, imho, it required quite a bit of tweaking of the eq to get the right balance along with the two play 3s we have for surround sound. By contrast the playbar and play 3s in another room seemed much easier to get the balance right. Although perhaps that was the difference with the shape, size etc of the room. Tv dialogue can sometimes be quite quiet with music and background nosies (especially with a lot of bass) quite booming at times. However once you’ve sorted out the right eq balance, this is superb. Music, tv, films are a joy to listen to and watch.

Sonos sounds are amazing and sound is very clear and crisp. Easy to setup and add on more speakers or an optional subwoofer. Playing music loud the music does not distort at all and being wireless you can place these speakers anywhere in house. The price you pay for this sound system is well worth the money.

One optical cable from telly to sonos. And is also a brilliant streaming music speaker. Pricey but golden quality for those who can afford it.

Recently bought my first sonos products, 2 play 1’s to be used in stereo and was blown away. I didn’t realise how addictive it would become. I’ve bought this to add to the home setup replacing an old bose 2. 1 system that i used with the tv. Honestly, the sound on this is great, for both tv and music. It compares to 2 separate speakers and a v large subwoofer in my old setup, taking up less space and looking better in the process. I haven’t connected directly to my tv as it doesn’t have an optical out, so the optical out for my htpc goes straight to the playbase. I’ve encountered no issues so far, speech is all in sync and when it detects the optical source, it switches to tv output on the playbase. V impressed and happy with my purchase. Yes, it is expensive, but it sounds, and looks like, a premium product, which, coupled with the ease of use of the app, makes it acceptable to the wife too.

Excellent sound, far superior to the tv (which wasn’t bad) with a sense of clarity and precision. Easy to set up and works well as the heart of a distributed sound system – i can now listen to the tv, apple tv and dvd sound the house, as well as internet/computer/phone sources. It could be a little louder for my tastes, but that will no doubt be improved when i can afford to add a sub.

A little expensive but well worth the money. The sound reproduction is first class.

This is a wonderful piece of kit, a bit pricey but worth every penny. Setup was a easy, took 5 mins. Connected it to my smart tv and the audio was immensely transformed. Music streaming took another dimension, the sound is crisp and clear, the bass so deep and heavy (controllable). I stream most of my music library through the playbase when am not watching tv, my sonos 5 is getting a breather. The sonos play 1 in the bedrooms are easily grouped and i can seamlessly change from playbase to sonos play 1 as i go into my bedroom. I think i will get the sub as a christmas present to myself. Since introduction, sonos wireless speakers have set an excellent benchmark which will stand the test of time.

Just mined blowing sounds amazing go buy one thats all i can say ull never need to go cinima again hooked up with a 65 inch 4k tv.

Bought as a gift and it’s phenomenal on its own. Can’t wait to build up with the speakers and other bits.

I have an lg oled 2018 tv and i initially thought that sounded decent. . Then i tried the sonos playbase and the difference was massive. (even my wife loves it and she was against the purchase at first) i paired it with the sub and the sound is simply amazing. The sonos playbase on its own is definitely worth it, the best way i can describe it is, the standard tv speakers sound flat and the playbase sounds full and deep. It’s amazing to rewatch films and hear sounds that you never heard beforeyou can also add existing sonos speakers to create a bigger setup and it’s not exclusively for the tv. You are able to play music on it also which again, sounds amazing.

Panasonic SC-HTB488EBK 200 W Soundbar – Great value for money!

This was a christmas gift for my husband, and the sound quality if fantastic, and so was the price. If you want a sound bar buy this, easy to install and makes the sound from the tv or bluetooth music fantastic.

This soundbar is a replacement for the one i bought with my samsung tv a couple of years ago, i was never happy with it. Both had a sub woofer, but this panasonic soundbar is excellent. The difference is quite noticeable, particularly with the sub woofer. There are a few preset sound settings which subtly allow more voice or music to be heard. It was very easy and straightforward to set up, i used the hdmi (arc) cable connection from the tv to the soundbar rather than an optical cable, but whatever is your preference. I also like the way it switches on and off with the tv on/off, not sure if that works with every tv. Yes, well pleased with this purchase.

This was purchased to compliment my new panasonic vierra 4k tv tx-65dx902b as it supports 4k pass through. It is supplied in an extremely large box which is mainly packaging. Once opened the soundbar is a smart and quite compact item along with the subwoofer. Very easy to set up two power leads and a hdmi cable (not supplied) to connect from the soundbar to the arc enabled hdmi socket of the tv. As soon as i switched it on, a brief pause as the tv volume muted, the soundbar system activated. I was then able to control the volume using the tv remote control. There is also a small remote supplied which you can use to change the mode amongst other things, but you need to get up close to the soundbar to read the digital display. The sound is exhilarating and totally brings to life anything on the screen. I was was watching tv at the standard setting and changed to cinema mode to watch a blu-ray film. The sound was fantastic just like being in the movies.

I was undecided on whether to buy this for a while (compared to a few others that were similar priced), but decided i needed it as my new panasonic tv didn’t have great speakers. . And i’m so glad i took the plunge. The sub is so impressive and the sound quality has improved no end. I find the ‘cinema’ setting works best all-round (gaming and films). I trialled it with avengers assemble and it didn’t disappoint :d i have my setup in a large front room with very high ceilings and it fills the room easily. Great value for money too, especially when you consider it works with other devices when wanting to play music.

Great sound bar- after a few hitches when it failed i think now i have sussed how to re tune in. It was bigger than i thought it would be never the less i have managed to hide the wires and the whole effect if very neat.

I used the hdmi cable to attach to the tv as the optical cable with gizmo caused interference with the sky. So easy to set up and it now work with the sky remote. Good depth of sound 🔊 various setting from 3d to movies, pick your favourite.

  • Excellent sounding home cinema experience
  • Brilliant value and sound
  • Clear speech finally!

Broadcast tv sound is often quite awful, especially in some ‘modern’ dramas. The panasonic 690 soundbar provides a range of outputs, so one can find the right mode and settingfor those cases where the actors lack clear enunciation or the sound engineering is poor or sub-standard. Nowadays a good soundbar is essential for tv and the panasonic 690 is a very effective aid. The ‘music’ mode and the subwoofer gives really great musical sound. The ‘stereo’ mode is perfect for older films. The central dialogue speaker really helps improve spoken soundand can be controlled. One criticism: i would prefer a bigger (perhaps less stylish) remote control.

Brilliant sound, probably the best available for the price.

So much better than the sound of my tv. Voices are clearer and music is so much better. I love the bluetooth subwoofer. I don’t know much about soundboards but seems to be very good value for money. Too bad it does not have a mini display to show the sound type and level.

. Ideal as a home theatre system on a budget and to use as a bluetooth speaker for your spotify tunes.

The sound quality is fantastic, so much better than the speakers in the tv. But what really lets this down is the remote control, it’s rubbish, i have to lean forward so i’m about 2 metres from the sound bar. Yes, i’m using the external sensor and i have complained and was sent a replacement remote control.

Excellent across all modes, music especially is fantastic. Expensive, but a country mile ahead of the sony htc sounder / sub it replaced. Dialogue crystal clear and wireless sub is sonically complimentary as opposed to waking the neighbours at the first sight of action. Very pleased, single arc connection from my tv and powers on/off automatically with tv (tested with both old sony and new panasonic tv). Looks great, sounds great and long guarantee from panasonic.

Linked by bluetooth to my flat-screen tv, this sound bar comes with a sub-woofer that, with a 4k tv makes you feel that you are actually taking part in the action on your screen.

Very pleased with the quality and soundit’s very clear with a great bassi highly recommend it to anyonewell worth the money.

Until i got this sound bar i didn’t realize how tinny the sound from my tv was. I’m using the hdmi arc input but it has a optical digital input if you run out of hdmi ports on the tv.

Bought for a second room and sound is ok but so,erik estrada gives strange spoken word issues and not very high volume for music. Also remote whilst i knew was small, is really too small as can drop down side of cushions etc.

I have down sized from a full blown hi fi amp and surround sound equipment and replaced it with the soundbar and subwoofer. Very simple to install and has removed the need for speaker cables, the speakers and the amplifier. So now the sound bar plugs into the arc hdmi socket on the tv and to the power supply with the blue ray and set top box plugged directly to the hdmi 1 and 2 sockets, once the subwoofer has paired automatically it all works when the tv is switched on. No more amplifier settings etc, so much easier.

200W Output

We would have liked a more expensive bar bose or sonos however couldn’t afford it after christmas so bought this. It’s been amazing value for money. Great cinema sound and i’ve had it on super loud for music as well unbelievable sound for the price.

It’s made films & general tv come alive. The lights in the sound bar to indicate if it’s on aren’t particularly visible & it’s not straight forward to see what sound option you have on. The only real use for the remote is to turn it on & adjust the volume without being near the sound bar. Overall though, for the money 8 couldn’t be any happier.

The sound and base is clear, and enhances my gaming experience. Found that using it on tv setting gives it is best clarity.

I like using it both for music and podcasts.

A really good purchase , has transformed the sound quality of our samsung tv.

Superb piece of kit,synced perfectly with my new panasonic tv.

2.1ch Surround Sound

Makes 100% better listening experience. Easy to set up and easy to use.

Amazing sound, i love that the subwoofer is connected via bluetooth with the soundbar so there’s less cables😁.

Fantastic sound bar with decent sound. Make a massive to my tv sound. Additional subwoofer is brilliant for movies and music. You can also connect via bluetooth my phone for music which is a massive bonus. Easy to setup and i ended up hanging it on the wall touch just a couple of minutes to do.

Really pleased with this product.

Terrific sound, somewhat fiddly to set up, but well worth the effort. Neighbours enjoy my movies without having to leave home.

Good price, pretty good sound quality with a decent bass. Miles better than the tv speakers. The controls and lights on the front are really hard to read, but the remote is good and has most adjustments on it. Works well with my panasonic tv, and i can also blue-tooth my phone to it to play music.

Absolutely brilliant, and has transformed our tv’s sound output. Very easy to connect to our panasonic tv and simplicity itself to change the sound settings with the supplied hand controller. The volume and on/off functions can be controlled with the panasonic tv hand controller. Wish we had bought one years ago.

Wireless Sub Woofer

Using this soundbar on our panasonic tv means we can finally hear speech properly on movies and shows on things like netflix. 1 speaker there is one speaker dedicated to speech in movies which means you can actually hear what people are saying in movies. I love that you can use it for a huge bluetooth speaker too its really easy to pair a phone and start playing whatever you want. Build quality and design is pretty good and sound quality sounds really good to someone who is not an audiophile.

Bluetooth wireless Technology.

Q ACOUSTICS Q Acoustics M2 Soundbar – Great sound, only minor quibbles

Brought q acoustics m2 as a replacement for my 3 year old burnt out canton dm75. Not only the m2 sound better when being used with tv and bluetooth music being streamed from my ipad but the hdmi connect enables control from the tv remote. Surround sound can be obtained my turning on in the tv setting. The only slight negative is the small and flimsy remote control when compared to the cantons. I can only hope it does not overheat inside and last longer than the canton.

Really pleased with this speaker, has a great depth of sound especially for movies. Also bluetooth music from iphone through apple music, sounds really good. Only marked down as i would like an onscreen display when adjusting volume and could look nicer.

After a lot of research i bought this to upgrade a flat screen tv speakers. The quality of finish is good and solid, with a rich and full sound. Haven’t cranked it up fully, but have not noticed any distortion on about 75% volume. The remote ( as described in a number of reviews) is pretty basic, and i haven’t notice and great difference between the two pre-set equaliser settings. Despite this it is a great improvement on the tv speakers and, for the price, i believe provides good sound.

New style sony tvs with the slim legs facing rearward do not fit this sound base. We have a 2018 49” tv and the 2 legs slip sideways and are not supported by the base. Really annoyingly if the edges of the m2 weren’t curved they would hold it. I’ve had to use a piece of ply to support the back tv legs.

Excellent piece of equipment, makes watching television more pleasurable with excellent sound quality.

If you want to significantly improve the sound from your tv but don’t want a surround sound system then this soundbase is an excellent choice for you. I have an lg 55inch oled ( 2017 model ) and the difference in sound is amazing. Very easy to set up , connect with hdmi ( to arc input ) , make sure your tv audio out is set to 2 speaker setting and that’s it. There are settings on the back to change depending on position of soundbase and a volume boost if needed. The vocals are much clearer , you can hear a lot more detail and those deep based sounds are a wow. You can also connect other devices via bluetooth so great for listening to audio books or music from your ipad. Be aware that q acoustics recommend that the tv stand should not overhang the base ( i can’t put my tv on it ) , but it sits nicely on a shelf underneath. Only downside is the naf remote but i can live with that.

  • A great compromise on a full 5.1 surround sound system
  • a surround sound system then this soundbase is an excellent choice for you
  • Great sound eventually from this M2 – very susceptible to room effects.

I am so happy with my q accoustics m2 soundbase. This is a fabulous piece o equipment. The sound is so clear and non fatiguing. I was watching silent witness last night which has a theme tune that would make most tvs and soundbars shudder. It just sailed brilliantly through this audio test. Never a quiver, never a step out of line. No you don’t get surround sound, fireworks or theatrics (unless they in the plot). What you do get is wonderful sound quality, vocal and instrument separation with no fatigue. As a hifi buff i’ve heard many audio systems and this is the nearest thing i’ve heard to hifi in tv sound. It doesn’t smack you round the ears. It just gently makes you wonder whether you would want to listen to tv any other way. Congratulations to q accoustics who incidentally i’d never heard of before.

Went for this to create an improvement over standard tv speakers. Improvement is massivebuild wise, the unit is weighty and well finished, no panel gaps or cheap feeling plastics, not as well built as something like the canton dm55 (which was also in consideration), but given the lack of connectivity and reliability on the canton units, i am more than happy with my choice. Sound wise, it gives out a ‘balanced yet meaty’ tonality, not an overpowering bass, but enough to make the spitfires in dunkirk sound like they were tearing through my front room. The only reason this is getting 4 rather than 5 stars is the frankly laughable remote, seriously, it is like something you got bundled with a cheap chinese in car tv/dvd combo in the early 2000s and lack of any form of volume indicator on the front of the unit when changing volume.

Improved sound for an older sony bravia, which does not have an hdmi arc output (i. A usual hdmi will not work). Luckily, the bar has phono and toslink inputs, but apparently hdmi arc would provide the ‘best’ experience.

I did loads of research on sound bars and sound bases. This is a new product and it won best soundbase 2017 in what hi-fi magazine, so that, some favourable user reviews and a demo made me choose it. Initially when i brought the unit home, i found it had too much bass and, as you can’t adjust the bass and treble, i was concerned. But then i realised that a switch on the back of the unit (designed to give different sound settings depending on where it is housed) actually does effectively give you three bass settings. I reduced the bass down using this and now i am very happy (but a shame the manual doesn’t tell you that though). After i did this i realised how good the unit sounds. The sound is spacious and not overly treated with showy effects making it a pure and powerful sound. I have tested it with various types of films and it sounds great. The other nice surprise is how good it makes music sound when played through it via bluetooth. The sound is nice and detailed and i have been hearing things i hadn’t before.

Great sound and simple to use but to high for my use.

Installation and set-up very straight- forward. Works well with my eight year old panasonic vieira.

A massive improvement to the tv internal speakers. I’m even considering buying another one for the lounge tv.

Overall sound bar is worth the money. Sound is great and can be heard all around the room. Bluetooth works great along side optical audio and hdmi. Would recommend for a fairly big room as is a bit over kill for a small room.

Easy to manage controls and useful side contacts for additional equipment but with fewer sound options than some competitors.

A wee bit big to sit under my samsung tv, but that’s a minor issue.

We’ll built good sound but sadly the remote is a joke.

What Hi-Fi? 2017 Product of the Year – Best Soundbase. The M2 Soundbase delivers stunning TV and audio sound performance.

Makes my old hi-fi redundant – (i play classical cds through panasonic recorder.

Not the best sound but will do job.

It’s robust and it is a huge improvement on my sony tv sound. With this unit i can listen to the dialogue with the volume much higher, which is super during this current and dramatic world cup. The sound is super clear with virtually no distortion, compared to using this the sony tv without it. I have found that positioning this unit directly under the tv, gives this unit it’s best effect. All in all, i am delighted with this product. I consider it, given the above improvements, excellent value for money. It also looks the bizi recommend this product without hesitation.

This isn’t a surround sound system but it does serve to drastically improve your existing stereo experience from your tv. I have used many surround sound systems at various budgets and from a practicality and clutter point of view i am very pleased with the m2. The sound output is very clear, the dialogue is crisp and the bass is immersive without being overpowering. I set it up out of the box in less than 5 minutes using an optical toslink cable (not supplied) and other than adjusting a couple of switches at the rear of the unit, it was ready to go. Operation is simple and colour coded with an light indicator at the top front of the unit. Pleasingly it automatically turns on and off when i turn on my tv – similar operation can be achieved using the hdmi (arc) cable (included) if compatible with your tv. I didn’t use this option as i didn’t have a spare hdmi input on my tv. This unit is very very loud and may not be for you if you want to use at very low volumes at a night time. Bluetooth/nfc operation is also very simple using the pairing button at the back (which can be a pain to access if you are placing it in a tv cabinet). It also has a very nice natural sound when used as a bluetooth speaker for music.

Could not have expected better, was looking for a soundbar/soundbase for a large tv in my bedroom as-with recent recording techniques the dictation was muffled and overshadowed by background music via tv speakers, i always trust reviews on what hi-fi magazine and this was product of the year 2017 stating that dialogue was firmly fixed at just the right level and sufficient bass provided not to take over. Turn it up and wow what an incredible sound adding a further dimension to films etc. Cannot recommend enough, buy with confidence.

Recommend you check the size before you buy ( was larger than i expected)but highly recommend.

The M2 doubles as an all in one music system for music lovers streaming high quality music via Bluetooth APTX or NFC for Android devices. So when the TV is off, you can stream your favourite music.

Very good sound,quite compatable with a lot more expensive brands,would highly recommend.

Fast delivery, excellent quality.

Easily installed when instructions were followed. Fits neatly under tv within stand. If left on standby no need to use provided clicker. Arrived earlier than expected in well constructed packaging.

Update: downgraded to 3 star from initial 5had this for 9 months now, and a few issues have started to plague me. The auto power off is infuriating, and it won’t always power back on via the remote (batteries are fine) or sometimes even has to be power cycled. This has now started to happen more often – currently about every 3 weeks it needs a full power off. Also just to note, i recently purchased a circa 1990 sony micro stereo (cd/md/tuner) from a heart foundation shop for £16 mainly because the speaker grilles match the decor in my kitchen. Hooked it up to the small tv in the kitchen just for fun initially, and i have to say this 1990’s stereo that had been thrown in the bin by someone is better than this £300 soundbari’ve been living with this for a week and thought i’d update my review accordingly. At the price, there’s nothing better in my opinion. Clear and balanced sound throughout the frequency spectrum. Nor does it fill your room with earth shattering bass, but the bass is still there. There’s also quite a bit of mid range detail that appears to be lacking in many sub £600 sound bars.

The m2 has replaced my denon soundbase which developed random cut-outs and loud “pops”. The denon’s sound was wider with a little more bass and was generally more enveloping. However, as with many others, there was no way i could put up with this apparently common problem. As you would expect, the m2 produces a far superior sound to that of my samsung tv and was easy to set up. Using the hdi lead means the m2 is automatically controlled by the tv remote so no “remote-learning” involved. Hopefully it will last a little longer than the denon.

Beautifully balanced stereo sound. Voices are much clearer (my hearing impaired other half no longer needs subtitles). If the source is good enpugh on orchestral music you can pick out every instrument and they sound like they are playing in the room. Really couldn’t ask for more and a bargain at this price point.

Rather than repeat other reviews, for me there’s two issues really. Soundbases tend to be put under the tv so where the tv is sited is where the soundbase goes. Initially this really didn’t work with where the tv was sited originally. The m2 was on top of a av unit with the tv on top of that. The output went very loud but was harsh in the mid range and there was little bass response. Adjusting the bass adjust slider on the rear didn’t do anything to the perceived level of bass in the listening position. After incrementally moving the tv and soundbase about a foot nearer, eventually the sound changed for the better. Movie eq is the default sound and its really good for movies and i was surprised that music (classical and rock) is best left on movie eq too.

BMR speaker drivers provide 180 degree room-filling sound, stunning stereo separation and clarity, but the inbuilt subwoofer gives a depth of soundscape that will transform your listening experience

Had this about two months now. Speaker quality is excellent. My tv is stuck in the corner of my lounge and was always difficult to understand. Only wish i could set the default source. Other than that is thoroughly recommended.

For £ 208 you can not expect more.

Nice sound not too much base, (which i like) clear sound sound and the volume goes pretty big.

With a range of inputs including HDMI, Optical, Bluetooth and NFC, the M2 provides ultimate flexibility when it comes to music source.
