Yamaha Electronics Yamaha MusicCast YAS306 Soundbar – Awesome sounds.

Very impressed with this i know yamaha are known for music products and they dint diversify i can see why i compared this to a £2000 bose sound bar in the shop the yamaha was far better much cleaner bass and pure clarity what a bargain indeed. Some of the bose bars didn’t even allow to bluetooth your music from your ipad.

After a couple of weeks i am still only getting to grips with this fantastic yamaha sound bar. It is difficult to write a comprehensive review as it has so many features and functions that i cannot fully examine. It is versatile and it does everything required – and it does so brilliantly. There is nothing to be gained by repeating details of the technical specification, but i can confirm all associated items are provided, and to make things easy there is a quick start guide plus an owner’s guide on cd, and a musiccast setup. Operation is straightforward with bluetooth or the single cable connection to my tv, but additional input may be required for the full range of streaming and links to other devices. The yamaha sound bar has various indicators on the front, with jack points and connections all clearly available at the rear. It is attractively slim and there is a template and spacers for fixing to a wall. It is provided with an optical digital audio cable and a remote control. What i can fairly confirm is that sound quality is superb across a wide treble to bass range with addition of a bass extension and special adjustment for the subwoofer. It is readily switched between surround and stereo, and there is a voice key for clear reception, and an audio delay key for synchronizing sounds and images.

I love the concept of sound bars itself. Previous, also from yamaha brand, slightly bigger. The current one is sexier and more minimalistic, from the design perspective and i love it more. 1 simulation and it works well. My room is not square and yet i love the output of this device. Believe me or not, you can not even compare the sound you will get vs your tv speakers. No, you don’t have to be a hi-fi guy or lady. Here are the specifications for the Yamaha Electronics Yamaha MusicCast YAS306 Soundbar:

Hooked up to my sub, sounds great.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Simply Awesome Soundbar
  • Excellent sound quality
  • I love this thing. Great sound!

The sound bar a great all in one package. The bass is great for built in subwoofers. The general sound quality is great as well. The only downside is the simulated surround sound isn’t that amazing. But the overall package is still great.

It has taken me sometime to get round to review this. For one, i used to have the samsung crystal air sound bar system. Which anyone who has one, knows that it has an active sub wuffer. I was a little surprised when this one did not come with an hdmi connection port. But after configuring it to use the optical out (cable supplied), i realised just what a great move that was. It does not need one of the valuable hdmi connections on the tvthe sound is lovely. The surround effect is brilliant. The dynamic range, is lovely. If you haven’t guessed, i really, really like this sound bar. It fits nicely under the tv, and the supplied optical out makes it more than flexible enough to be moved to where you need it.

This is a quality sound bar i am very pleased with and like the idea of adding additional musiccast items in near future. Great sound and another top class product from yamaha.

Shipping was delayed but overall really good product.

I reviewed bose soundbars but they were quite expensive so i thought of ordering yamaha yas306 sound bar and take a risk – i must say, it exceeded my expectations – really great sound – deep base, very crisp and clear sound. It’s simply a great add on to your tv for much richer sound experience at such an affordable price. I am using it with sony 55 inch tv and it works like a magic and it fits nicely under the tv. I am now thinking of adding yamaha subwoofer as well to maximize the base and create a cenima like experience. Cons:only slight annoyance is that volume indication doesn’t come on the tv – so it’s difficult to know the current volume of the soundbar e. Is it on full or medium or how far can i go further etc. And finally, quick set up guide could be improved – as it took me few minutes to figure out on what to do for the set up. Overall great soundbar for a very reasonable price.

This is a quality soundbar which produces good audio. It’s quite chunky and has a bit of heft about it (at least partially due to the two built-in sub-woofers), but it sits comfortably in front of my tv. Set-up is very simple, just plug it in and connect the optical cable to your tv. Inputs for blu-ray/dvd players and so on are also included, although there’s no hdmi. The sound has good bass – made even better by the bass enhancement setting – adding real punch which soundbars can often lack. The surround sound is not great, it gives a bit more body to sound at the slight expense of some fidelity, but the surround aspect itself is questionable at best. Devices like this are never going to give you the performance of a 5. 1 system, but then their purpose is primarily to give you bang for your buck in a smaller footprint. The yas306 has plenty of volume and is very easy to get configured just how you like it.

Hq sound, the built-in sub-woofer is sufficient for a large living room and is a real space saver compared to other sound bar which have the sub woofer as a separate box.

Can’t see the volume level on the tv screen , which is a bit annoying got to listen how the sound changes instead of being able to just put the volume on certain level.

Very good look very good soundfor the money.

Absolutely love this product, the sound quality with the 2 inbuilt subwoofers and surround sound aspect is on another level. True cinema feeling right in your living room. The only downsides would be, it’s not foolproof and can be a bit difficult to set up, i’m 26 and shouldn’t really have any problems with modern technology, but it did take a little while to set up & i would like to add that i would prefer to keep it in front of the television, only because it is quite heavy. Overall, i’m very impressed with the soundbar & would recommend it to anyone looking to upgrade.

Almost cinematic in it’s force and fidelity, this soundbar from yamaha packs a serious punch. The bluetooth is reliable too. In truth it’s probably a little more powerful than you need for home viewing. Perfect perhaps for a school or business.

Thanks 😁good end very fast delivery.

It is much more than just a soundbar, the yamaha yas306 is a complete streaming music speaker with class-leading connectivity. Air surround xtreme for immersive sound. Making this single soundbar sound more like a multi-speaker speaker pack, the yas306 features yamaha’s exclusive air surround xtremeusing 24khz hrtf (head related transfer function) technology it manages to clearly separate sounds from the front, rear and sides of you. 1-channel surround sound, without the need for extra speakers. Wowit has built-in subs for deeper bass. 5cm woofers either side of the soundbar, you’re guaranteed a rich, full-bodied sound that’s a great improvement on standard tv speakers. If you require an even deeper bass for that full cinema effect, a subwoofer output lets you connect up your choice of active sub. Musiccast for music all around your home. The yamaha yas306 is fully compatible with yamaha’s hugely impressive network audio system, musiccast. With musiccast you can control all your compatible yamaha musiccast products via your smartphone or tablet.

Bought this for our son after checking out reviews and pleased that he’s absolutely delighted with it.

Great bass and i love the surround setting, so many connection options. The infrared pass through for the tv remote is fantastic.I’ve set mine up so i can just use the tv remote to control both my tv and sound bar at the same time. I’ve tried several sound bars in the past and this is my favourite one piece. There is connection for an external subwoofer if required.

I have sonos playbase and this yamaha is butter than sound with great bluetooth.

Canton DM55 2 – First Class Soundbase

Apart from adjusting your tv to recognise the sound output, very easy to install and operate. Good rich sound – mumbling a thing of the past.

Not a patch on the lg surround system it replaced, so if you watch a lot of movies – don’t buy this. Ok for slim screen tv’s for improved sound. Looks very sleek but i found the placement of the inputs fiddly and difficult to access. I waited ages before installing it and in fact, would have returned it after i’d set it it up and heard it due to my disappointment.

Great sounds and sounds natural. Does not take up a lot of space and looks good below my tvs. I have not had any problems with this lovely product. Here are the specifications for the Canton DM55 2:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • This 6-driver design transforms TV and movie sound, plus offers wireless music playback.
  • Sleek, glass-topped soundbase sits discreetly under your flatscreen TV; Ideal for larger rooms and flatscreens
  • 6 drivers: 2 tweeters, 2 midrange, 2 subwoofers
  • 2.1 channel amplification with 200 Watts system power
  • The Canton Digital Movie should be positioned anywhere underneath the screen on a flat surface. Capacity up to 40 kg if TV placed on the Device

Very decent sound, looks very smart, more minimalist and much less obtrusive than a sound bar. There are however a couple of baffling oddities. Firstly the remote only works if you hold it about 25 to 30 cms. In front of the device (which kind of defeats the entire point of a remote) and every now and again it just randomly switches itself off. I’ve replaced the remote battery twice but there is no improvement, a promised replacement remote never materialised. Neither of these things are hugely problematic though, and i’m generally quite pleased with my choice.

Clear and convincing sound quality. Films and the proms – marvellous.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • ALMOST Perfect but still WONDERFUL alternative to separate ‘Subs’ and rear speakers!
  • A class act.
  • Trippy and not in a good way – Update

I’ve waited a while before reviewing this product given some of the negative reviews. So far, i’ve experienced none of the problems other reviewers have documented. I have the canton setup in my bedroom with a samsung t24h390s smart 24′ led tv and the profile of the canton fits the tv perfectly. The sound is fantastic for a small room. Great clarity and a pleasing neutral sound which can be adjusted to suit your taste. Bluetooth connectivity is great too and easy to set-up. As others have noted, the remote is impressive and built like a brick. For those that complain about sound drop-out, i wonder if it’s linked to their to their tv provider’s box?. I’ve experienced sound drop-out, and isolated it to my virgin media v6 box.

Very easy to setup and integrate with the tv. The sounds is exactly what i expected after reading plenty of other reviews, not disappointed.

Pleased to add my name to its many 5 star reviews.

Smart, tidy and the sound quality good.

The sound quality is fantastic. Make sure to buy a plug conversion as it is a german sound system. It also fits nicely under my 65” tv.

I did exchange the white for the black but both are of equal build quality – we just felt that the black fitted in better for us. Also, purchased when on offer at £249 (nov 2016)wonderful, quality soundbasereplaced a wireless rear speaker surround sound system (one speaker failed)was apprehensive at first but after following the guidance to allow the canton speakers ‘settle’ over a few days, we’ve been 100% deligfhted with the quality of the sound. It’s possible to ‘tweak’ both the bass and the treble and the choice between stereo and surround makes a very noticeble difference on most films. Volume is way more than enough than we need or will ever use. Quality sound, though should be balanced and have sufficient ‘separation’ between full on bass and full on treble (i’m also sounding as if i’m very knowledgeable. I’m not, but i enjoy quality audio) to my ears, the canton does provide super clarity and ‘separation’ so that the spoken word or singing isn’t battling against ‘mushy’ ( it’s a persoanl technical term) background. It fits perfectly under our 4 legged samsung 40′ tvthe remote controler is re-assuringly ‘weighty’ and cleverly but simply designed. Well, a key reason we selected the canton was bluetooth. Perhaps we’re missing a setting choice but if we have bluetooth enabled on either phone or ipad, the canton seems to prefer that source to the tv (or dvd) source and has occasionally ‘switched’ from tv if we have begun using the devicewith bluetooth switched off on phones and ipad, there is absolutely no problem. We have set the canton to use tv as default source but we may well be missing some nuance setting. If i do find it, i’ll update this review (and will most certainly up the canton to 5 stars)if you find this report helpful, please like.

No issues as yet with synchronisation. Minor issue getting it to work my samsung tv otherwise great product – worth the dosh.

Ok, it is as good a product as everyone else has said it is, my only gripe is that the system only has bass and treble options for equalising the sound. I like to use it to watch movies mainly. When i switch from my tv which has a seven band graphic eq that i can play with, the sound from the sound base sounds quite nasal (y). It is not the end of the world as after a few minutes i don’t really notice the difference, but it is there. I cannot really see why a more extensive graphic eq could not have been put in. When doing research into your purchase look out for systems that have bass, middle & treble or a graphic eq. I am very happy with the product, looks great, fits under the tv, great(ish) price, sounds good.

Slim, well built and sounds good. I would like a little bit more from the twin subs but there is still plenty for most in the low frequency range. Overall a big step up from the tv speakers.

Bought this after briefly searching online for a good sounding tv companion with the talent to combine as our main living room sound system. Or the mrs can’t stand loads of wires and seperate sub’s (like mine) then this makes perfect senseit’s simple to set-up, one plug into the wall and one into the back of the tv. Easyvisiting friends at yours can utilise the easy-peasy bluetooth connection and be listening to quality sound in seconds. Research and research and research if you must. . The dm55 has won lots of awards and plaudits.

I attached this to a sony bravia kdl 32w654a which was attached to a virgin media tivo box. Tivo remote control is able to control the volume. Took about 15 mins to set up. First impression is that it has not made much difference. But then sat down to watch rush and the difference is amazing. The sounds that you hear in the cinema are now coming through and add depth giving you an emotional response. Great addition to tele experience and much better than investing in 4k which has little content.

So far so good,great sound indeed cant see what other reviewers were going on about,and at last a remote that feels like a remote and not a piece of card. I have had the extra guarantee just incase but i cant see me needing it if it works like this all the time.

Replaced a good but cumbersome surround sound set and i haven’t looked back. The from the bluetooth to watching movies it great. Good quality and plenty of adjustment level means this is a great addition to my tv setup. Quality device that looks the part, is a bit bigger than i expected but wasn’t a problem at all. I have also attached my existing sub-woofer to it and now i roars if i want it to. Good for everything from movies, sport and everyday tv. Also i have used it to play music from my phone and has been good for the odd kids party.

I bought this because it was highly recommended by which. It’s ok and has improved my tv’s audio somewhat. However it hasn’t been as good as i hoped. For some reason the background music seems too loud and the speech too quiet. I have tried fiddling around with the settings, but to no avail.

Bought it as a present for my husband.

Totally satisfied about this product and thanks to the engineers who designed such an amazing soundbase. It provides wonderful sound quality for tv shows with crisp and clear sound and for movies, the added subwoofers with the surround feature are adding an excellent home theater experience without the hassle of adding many speakers.

Canton DM55 2 – Excellent soundstage. No issues as yet with synchronisation

Bought it as a present for my husband.

I was anticipating something amazing after seeing the reviews of this item – especially on the which site where it came top of all those that have been tested by them. The atmosphere created by incidental music in films is very well conveyed and on downloaded youtube videos you are very much aware that it is the source material that is limiting rather than the sound base. Deep clean bass from ancient instruments like the tiorba is a revelation and really full sounds like a piano concerto are handled easily. Voices are more of a problem with the extra fullness of the frequency range sometimes negating the improvement in the mid-range voice frequencies – but here i must admit that i am over 70 and my ears may be the difficulty here. The controls are sensibly limited e’g’ the treble and bass boost and cut aren’t extreme enough to produce unpleasant sound even at the edges of their ranges nor does the ‘surround’ option produce an unnatural experience. Connection is easy and a bluetooth link to my phone was set up in seconds. Despite having bought this product in order to improve tv speech and finding this the weakest part of the performance i’m delighted with this product. After reading, and acting upon, the comment made by cenc on this review i’ve upgraded my rating to 5 star.

Neat design combined with good sound.

Apart from adjusting your tv to recognise the sound output, very easy to install and operate. Good rich sound – mumbling a thing of the past.

Very easy to setup and integrate with the tv. The sounds is exactly what i expected after reading plenty of other reviews, not disappointed.

A great sound system let down slightly by a basic remote control.

  • ALMOST Perfect but still WONDERFUL alternative to separate ‘Subs’ and rear speakers!
  • A class act.
  • Trippy and not in a good way – Update

Having carried out research on the internet this had rave reviews and quite rightly so.

Slim, well built and sounds good. I would like a little bit more from the twin subs but there is still plenty for most in the low frequency range. Overall a big step up from the tv speakers.

Ok, it is as good a product as everyone else has said it is, my only gripe is that the system only has bass and treble options for equalising the sound. I like to use it to watch movies mainly.

I am very happy with the product, looks great, fits under the tv, great(ish) price, sounds good.

As a 7-year zvox 555 listener, i was totally blown away by the canton dm55. The vast improvement in sound immersion is truly awesome. And its appearance is truly rich and luxurious. You wouldn’t be disappointed, and the price is incredibly low for this powerhouse of a sound base.

Not a patch on the lg surround system it replaced, so if you watch a lot of movies – don’t buy this. Ok for slim screen tv’s for improved sound. Looks very sleek but i found the placement of the inputs fiddly and difficult to access. I waited ages before installing it and in fact, would have returned it after i’d set it it up and heard it due to my disappointment.

Very happy with this bad boy. The bass is epic from such a discrete box. Nice weight remote and good inputs including bluetooth streaming. At times it feels as though the midrange takes a back seat but this could be the source material.

Smart, tidy and the sound quality good.

Good piece of kit works well with my 42 inch panasonic tv. Bigger tv’s would be unlikely to fit on top of it as it is very compact.

I don’t write reviews often but for canton dm55 i must. I was considering to buy bose. Having compared sound quality with bose, canton offer more clarity. It’s not just having base, but also sharpness.

Sound reproduction is great.

Sleek, glass-topped soundbase sits discreetly under your flatscreen TV

This is just what i needed – the sound is good although not ever so ‘surround sound’. It is very easy to set up and the sound is more than enough for a medium sized room. The sound is clear, with dialogue much better than the normal flat screen tv speakers and when it comes to deep sound it is tight and well controlled. All in all i feel this was a really good purchase and i am well pleased with it.

Clear and convincing sound quality. Films and the proms – marvellous.

Sound quality not comparable with an external sub but still good.

Replaced a good but cumbersome surround sound set and i haven’t looked back. The from the bluetooth to watching movies it great. Good quality and plenty of adjustment level means this is a great addition to my tv setup. Quality device that looks the part, is a bit bigger than i expected but wasn’t a problem at all.

Also i have used it to play music from my phone and has been good for the odd kids party.

My canton dm55 went into continuous on – off looping cycle that is commonly reported. I was trying to pair between two other bluetooth devices at the time (nothing to do with the canton), so seems to be root cause or big coincidence. Doesn’t appear anyone has discovered a user fix and being out of warranty not economic to repair. I got just under 3 years out of it. Annoying because it feels like if as a user you could do a factory reset it be back to working. Update: contacted canton support in germany and they agreed to repair unit at no cost, i just had to pay for shipping to germany (although heavy, delivery was under £15). The same unit was returned after repair and is fully working, the overall process taking about 5 weeks. Was told by canton that the underlying issue (they didn’t provide any more details) has been resolved and so won’t recur.

Ideal for larger rooms and flatscreens

Great sounds and sounds natural. Does not take up a lot of space and looks good below my tvs. I have not had any problems with this lovely product.

Sound is impressive but you do have to crank up the volume especially on different inputs with varying levels. Probably should have gone for the bigger version given the size of our living room.

Bought this after briefly searching online for a good sounding tv companion with the talent to combine as our main living room sound system. Or the mrs can’t stand loads of wires and seperate sub’s (like mine) then this makes perfect senseit’s simple to set-up, one plug into the wall and one into the back of the tv.

The dm55 has won lots of awards and plaudits.

After reading other reviews i was expecting something exceptional – the sound is good but i wouldn’t call it exceptional. Maybe i’m restricted by living in a terraced house where i can’t turn the volume up too high. Having said all that as i say the sound is rich and clear and i find i don’t need subtitles as often as used to and there are quite a few nice features like being able to have it switching off and on automatically when the tv is switched on and off.

No issues as yet with synchronisation. Minor issue getting it to work my samsung tv otherwise great product – worth the dosh.

6 drivers: 2 tweeters, 2 midrange, 2 subwoofers

meidong TV Sound bar – Five Stars

Obviously nit as good as high end speakers but for the price the product is extremely good.

But not exactly audiophile quality. Without a subwoofer the bass is understandably lacking. If i had a quality tv i’d go for something much better, but i don’t, so i didn’t.

Good sound for the price of the item.

Good sound quality, used with ps4 and tv.

Looks good it doesn’t have a stand for the speaker to go on. Other than that worth buying.

  • Meh – it’s ok
  • Five Stars
  • Easy to use

Panasonic SC-ALL9EB-K 80W Powerfull Multi Room Speaker – A huge improvement on the All-8.

Firstly, it looks dead smart. The front cover is a fine smooth mesh made of material, rather than plastic. The quality of the rest of the speaker is excellent. Can get very loud when using wi-fi, which could obviously be amplified even further if you use the multi-room feature (connecting several units). Love the pre-set internet radio feature, the buttons are intuitive. Comes with an extra piece to enable secure wall-mounting. This is a great looking piece of kit which i feel will still look good in years to come.

Very mixed feelings about this speaker. On it’s merits for sound quality, it’s a solid 5 stars, but for everything else it just lets itself down. First off – what the hell is this thing?. Well, it’s sort of like a bluetooth speaker on steroids. You can set it up to connect directly to any internet radio source you want, and by using multiple all-play speakers you can then stream music, simultaneously, throughout the house. You can also do things like be listening to music on your headphones though your phone while out and about, and then seamlessly continue the music through your allplay speakers as you come home. Or, you can use it as a bluetooth speaker. The big, big problem with this gorgeous sounding device is the app. I’m no neophyte when it comes to internet of things. Things, but this was a complete pain to set up and took me the best part of an hour to get working.

I’ve been a long-time sonos user, having two sonos play 3 and a sonos play 5, but i’d heard that the panasonic all range had improved greatly since its first outing, so was looking forward to seeing how the all9 compares to its sonos equivalent. The speaker is quite large (15′ wide, 8′ high, 4′ deep), but in black it still looks quite nice and sleek. On the back there is the socket for the power cable, a lan ethernet cable socket, and a 3. 5mm jack socket (more on that later). On top there are six buttons that can be assigned to preset internet radio stations, volume up and down buttons, indicators for the connection type (network, bluetooth and aux), and an on/off button. The first important thing to say — and to me this is often not made clear in product descriptions for speakers such as this — is that this is a wireless and a bluetooth speaker, so you can connect via wifi, or bluetooth (or indeed both). Connection to wi-fi is quite easy. You download the panasonic music stream app, and when the speaker is turned on, the speaker generates its own wi-fi network. You connect your device (in this case my first device was an iphone 6s), join the all network, and you’re then prompted to choose the wi-fi network with which you want to work (in my case bt infinity), and enter the wireless key for this. The wi-fi light on the speaker turns solid blue, and you’re good to go.

The panasonic all-9 certainly looks the part, is well made and would fit well in most living rooms without screaming ‘hi-tech gadget’ to anyone who sees it. In use there’s plenty of volume from this relatively compact device, it’s a bit stiff sounding to start with but the speakers settle in quite quickly and the sound becomes more natural sounding. So if you a loud, but unobtrusive wi-fi speak the panasonic all-9 is a good choice, but there are a few irritations…the first one i came across is the power lead is at least a foot too short to reach the plug if i put the all-9 on my average height mantle piece (the plus socket is on the side of the chimney breast). My sonos 1 cable reaches without a problem. In terms of hardware i don’t really have any complaints, but the software is disappointing – not terrible or unusable, just fussy and long winded. Where as the sonos set-up was simple and slick, the panasonic set-up and associated music stream app is lots of text and tiny buttons. And once everything is installed and the hardware is up and running it’s not particularly intuitive – particularly if you want to link to a music library on network computer (in my case a mac with pnp software installed). To be honest using it felt like harder work than it should be. So overall good hardware (cable aside), but the software side of things could/should be improved.

This is a tough one to review. Having tried this speakerbox out in a number of different ways of using it, i can certainly say it is gutsy. Clear top notes and an effective bass with its multiple speakers inside the cabinet. Panasonic is a stablemate of technics in japan so i would expect nothing less. Firstly as an experiment i tried the aux in with a cable to a pc soundcard and was rewarded with exceptional performance using it that way. Bluetooth performance is also quite good. There is a little loss when sending music to it that way from a device or computer, but it is effective and could easily pay its way as a soundbar for a high quality tv. We have a recently purchased panasonic tx-49dx600b tv in the family so a test there also produced good results. Certainly shows the versatility of this product.

The rrp for this is over £300 and it’s certainly not worth that, especially as you can get a decent rig for half that. But if you shop around you may find it reduced in which case it’s worth a go. Despite what some others say, i quite like the way it looks. The controls and inputs/outputs are simple and straightforward to use. The wi-fi is easy to set up after you download the unit app and the instructions are straightforward enough. It copes with bluetooth and internet radio, the sound is good especially on the bass end and you can even hook it up by cable to a hi-fi system to cover all bases. But only at the right price.

  • ALL9 Panasonic’s big wireless wonder
  • Extra apps needed
  • ALL8 with added features (and hopefully added reliability)

The others reviews present have really hit the nail on the head about the contradictions of this pansonic speaker. So a short review to summarize the experience of this user, which appears to resonate with others. Pros* the sound quality is good. It handles bass well, has a great low end and whilst some speakers have a vibration problem it cannot be detected on this product. If your view of a product is conditioned by what you get then there is real substance present. (but see below)* the fact that this is a wireless and a bluetooth speaker is very useful. Connecting with wireless does tend to give it more range around the house and can be more stable than bluetooth. * the presence of an aux connection with a lead also allows you to connect this by cable to older devices. Cons* the software is not fit for purpose. Read the excellent review by emteq (8/10 for hardware, 2/10 for software, 28 jan. 2017) which sets this out in copious detail that does not need repeating here. Suffice it to say that on one occasion this speaker nearly departed through the window because of these problems. * the largeness of this speaker is a strength and weakness. Many people play music through the pc and seek a desk based speaker such as the compact bose soundlink mini that blasts out a great sound without taking over your space.

I underestimated the size of this speaker as what i extracted from the box was quite a beast. Check the dimensions before you order. The all9 has 6 preset digital radio buttons and can connect to various devices using bluetooth or wifi. This includes connecting to spotify if you have spotify premium which i do. I keep mine in the kitchen to listen to music and podcasts when cooking, streaming music and audio from my phone. The speaker works excellently for this task giving a rich and deep sound for me to boogie to while i cook. The main downsides of the speaker are that i had to download two different apps on my phone; one to set up the speaker on the wifi and a second to program the radio stations. Neither apps are going to win awards for ease of use and it knocks a star off an otherwise quality product.

As other reviewers have observed, this speaker is big, so make sure you have room for it by checking dimensions against available space(s) before ordering. It’s not something you will carry around with you. I have no other panasonic devices so i’m comparing it to my little bose soundlink bluetooth units. I wouldn’t say that the sound from it is better than the bose. Bigger, but not better in its detail, if you know what i mean. The music streaming app from panasonic is much improved as long as you are playing music already on your phone. Last time i tried one of these units, if you were playing music via it, then the app didn’t allow me to access the internet simultaneously. So far i have only streamed radio, but no problems so far. And it has 6 preset buttons.

Once the all9 is connected it sounds pretty good, as is quite usual the user’s instructions could be a little clearer – probably a case all the letters are there, but not necessarily in the right order – these instructions actually combine the all9 manual with that of the panasonic all6 speaker, which can for some maybe make things unclear at times.

==getting my rant out the way==i have an existing panasonic allplay speaker network, so this expanded this nicely. However, having been badly burnt in the past by panasonic, and the faults in it’s first generation sc-allx units, and their whitewashing of the problem, it’s really hard to want to have anything to do with panasonic ever again. But hey, i am essentially locked in via existing technology purchases, so have little choice in that matter. ==overview==this is essentially a reworking of the fatally flawed all8 wireless speaker, adding 2nd generation features like the preset buttons, and restreaming from aux-in and bluetooth, and nfc touch. All these features really take this unit to the next level and the preset buttons are a game changer, meaning once setup, you don’t need to use the (still clunky, but much improved) panasonic music streaming app. ==sound quality==the sound quality from this unit is superb, really is top notch and hard to fault. And unlike sonos, allplay supports 24/96 uncompressed flac, means you really can throw hd audio at this and it sounds superb, you really won’t be disappointed by the sound quality. The other area in which allplay excels, is in room-room latency, which is substantially lower, meaning better sync between speakers (and in my experience, much less change of loss of sync). Allplay really is the platform of choice for people that care about music quality. And this speaker delivers a great build off the qualcomm allplay hardware platform.

This is such a difficult review to write. I’m trying desperately not to compare it to the rather disastrous all8 that basically stopped working after a couple of years. This all9 has certainly been improved. The added presets for radio are a good feature as is the addition of blue tooth, however the main problem is that it still needs to function with the incredibly clunky panasonic app. It’s just not slick enough compared to the device. To be honest, i’ve given up trying to stream my music and just use it for radio and spotify. If only there were more competition on the controller front,it’s an attractive enough piece of kit, in a black rectungular sort of way, and the quality of sound is exceptionally good, rich, deeep and fills the room nicely. It was easy to set up and recognised all our software on our devices from the all8. It’s certainly an improvement but i really feel that on the next upgrade panasonic should really overhaul the software to provide an easier user experience.

Been hunting through sonos, sony, chrome cast audio to find something that meets all our family needs. The all9 does it all, great sound, easy to use with 6 internet station presets, an aux to plug anything you like in and an ok app, its easy enough to use, not sure what all the moaning is about on here. Talking of moaning on here, set up was a doddle, press a button on unit 4secs, press wps button on side of router done, took no more than a minute. Very happy boy will be buying more units to build this set up, although you really don’t need to, sounds awesome.

I don’t know where to start with this. If i were basing my review solely on the quality of sound coming out of this speaker, then we’d probably be looking nearer the 4th star rating. As it is, i feel bad giving it 2 stars, but there are just too many problems encountered. Let’s start with the size of this behemoth. It’s big, and it’s heavy, and as something which is designed to sit in your house somewhere, it just looks like it is out of place; a huge chunk of black plastic that won’t fit anywhere. My wife immediately suggested that this does not belong in our house. She also mentions that this needs to bring an end to my speaker addiction, but we all know it probably won’t be. Initial connection to the device is quite easy; you connect your phone to the speaker as a wifi source, and then you get to set it up to connect to your wifi – easy. The app is where most problems occur with these types of speaker in my opinion; i recently tried to set up a b&o speaker, the app for that made it unusable.

Firstly the sound is quite amazing, this is very much a plus but it is also rather a big speaker, so i’d have been disappointed had it not have been. Now the annoying bits – while bluetooth connectivity is rather straightforward and works very well to play iplayer, youtube, other media servers etc although the sound quality is reduced a little. But if you want to use this speaker to the best of its (apparent) ability you need other apps. The panasonic app starts out intuitive enough, it picks out the speaker and lets it connect to your wireless network easily enough, but to actually play music through it is dire. It makes itunes look good, that’s how bad it is. If you have music on your device then it isn’t too bad, it can find it easily enough and plays it, but to find music stored remotely on connected servers is slow, unintuitive and frankly painful. It’s frustrating to have this amazing powerful speaker and i feel i can only really use it as a common or garden bluetooth speaker as that’s the easiest and most intuitive way – however you lose something for sound qualitythe spotify integration works well but only if you have premium which we do, otherwise it’s a wasted feature. Basically the speakers system is good, great sound, and when it works it’s wonderful 5*but the apps needed to use it to its full capacity are annoying and shouldn’t be necessary 2*(this was based on apple mobile devices, i can’t speak for android users).

This panasonic multi room speaker is an impressive bit of kit. Straight out of the box this was easy to set up and once i had my streaming app open on my phone this sync-ed up and i was playing music in no time at all. The sound is very bassy and it is definitely aimed at more modern music, but the sound overall was very good and handled a mixture of blues, rock and metal that i normally listen to. It was compact enough to be unobtrusive and yet big enough to provide an adequate sound spread.

This large panasonic speaker gives out a fantastic sound, better then smaller bluetooth speaks i have around the house, however i would expect this given the size comparison to the bose ones i have and the 80w output. The bluetooth connected up straight away, and seems reliable. I did download the app, however having different branded speaks in my house i have too many apps on my phone. To get the most from this speak you do need the app i have so far had it playing from an iphone, samsung tablet and via youtube. I haven’t tried adding more speakers to the system so can’t comment on that. Overall really good sound, just a little lareg.

ALL Connected Multi-Room Speaker with 80W output power

This speaker looks fantastic – it’s fairly bulky but looks great on the shelf, very minimalistic with subtle buttons along the top of the device. You can connect via bluetooth or wifi and run spotify through it – if you’ve got premium you can also use your phone/laptop as a remote, which i really liked. Connecting to wi-fi is quite easy, just need to download the panasonic music stream app. Similarly, connecting via bluetooth is quick and painless. I also liked that you can set it up as an internet radio, with six presets. The only thing for me is the sound quality which lets it down (and is fairly crucial when it comes to a speaker). I found it to be a bit muffled unless you were sat directly in front of it – not much use if it’s in the corner of the room. It does go quite impressively loud though. Other reviews haven’t mentioned the sound issue, so perhaps i’m missing a setting or have a defective unit.

I have an all8 as well, which like another reviewer here also stopped working but luckily it was within warranty. The service centre told me they had some issues with the processor chip in the first generation of the all speakers but this is now resolved in these second gen units. My all 8 now has one of these chips in :o)i love the sound out of the all9 which is the same as the all8. This being the biggest speaker in the range it easily fills a large room with clear detailed sound and a great low end. With the app you can connect the two as stereo and that takes it up another leveli now have 5 speakers around the house including an all30 tv sound base and love the easy of using them all on spotify and the panasonic app is now really rather good, it was poor. The new range with the internet radio presets are great as you don’t need to grab a device to get some sound going. Re-stream is also cool to send anything from one speaker, be that a bluetooth source or a connected aux input, to any or all of you other speakers. Don’t use it to often mind as mostly spotify. I really do not understand spending hundreds more on sonos per speaker but hey, if you’ve got money to burn and prefer the look.

1byone 40W Stereo Wireless Soundbar Speaker – I guess you get what you pay for

It is crystal clear but just missing some bass. With other products or regular tv sound, the music takes over and you can not hear what is being said. Now you can hear every word crystal clear and never miss a beat. It does collect a little dust easy but most electronics do. Having some mounting brackets for the wall are included. The set up is very simple to understand and easy to do.

Ordered for my daughter’s computer to provide better music quality than her laptop. This sound bar is well designed with all kinds of interfaces to support many devices. The sound volume is pretty loud and can be adjust easily with buttons or the remote control. She likes it and uses it everyday.

Arrived with a cracked underside. If i had paid full price i’d probably get my money back. (i paid £20)only comes with a really cheap rca cable. No batteries for the remote, which takes aaa’s – something so small would be better with a button cell. Will update when i get a response about the crack.

For the price i paid i didn’t expect so amazing quality. Was super easy to install and the sound quality is superb. Controls are easy to use and don’t require you to be directly in front to use which is brilliant.

Perfect for what i wanted it for.

Our tv sound quailty is very bad. However, we cannot afford to get a new tv or expensive brand sound bar. I based on the review and purchased this sound bar. It is inexpensive, very easy to install and the sound is surprising me. The sound is loud and good quailty. It came with a red and white cord and a remote.

  • The sound bar is a good size, with two wall brackets provided so you
  • great sound bar.
  • starsSound and functionality pretty good for the price

The sound bar is great for streaming or listening music on tv. The sound quality is really great and has the bass.

Easy to install,clear instructions,sound clear and easy to listen to,great all round value.

Excellent product for the price. It supplements the poor volume on my flat screen tv. Would recommend it at this price.

Sound and functionality pretty good for the price – i like being able to slot in a usb or connect via bluetooth. Dab worked fine for me with the aerial provided. I prefer my denon systems, but they cost quite a bit more – if this worked perfectly it would be great vfm.

The sound bar is a good size, with two wall brackets provided so you can attach it to a wall. The screen on the front is clear and the remote works well. There are some buttons on the side of the speaker so it’s not entirely defunct if you lose the remote. The sound quality is pretty good and the volume goes up very high without losing sound quality. I used it to play music from a usb and from bluetooth. The volume is louder in general from the usb than from bluetooth, but both worked fine. The sound bar needed time to load the music from the usb though, and connecting to the sound bar via bluetooth took longer than usual. However, this might’ve been my phone playing up. When i hooked it up to the tv, however, the sound was even more crisp and defined. It helped contribute to an even more immersive experience, and i’d recommend this sound bar to everyone.

Very nice quality with great packaging and a good sound system. A very worth while purchase.

Neat way to replace large front facing surround speakers. Big sound with low price tag considering similar soundbars cost 100’s of £££’s more.

Have only had this 24 hours but am so impressed with the difference it has made to watching my samsung television. Very easy to set up (have used the headphone connection for now as it seemed the most easiest)turned tv volume down to zero, turned sound bar volume up to max and selected the movie setting. Now just use tv remote to control the volume. And the sound bar remote for on and off. Can’t go wrong for the money.

Great product with a good sound.

Careful setting of my lg tv sound parameters produced significantly better sound quality than this sound bar.

Mighty Rock Sound Bar TV Soundbar Wired and Wireless Bluetooth Audio Speakers – Soundbar will not work with my LG TV which is an older version of around 8 or 9years.

Unfortunately i cannot make a successful cable connection with any of the leads supplied. The problem appears to be that there is hopeme this of cutting of the tv internal speaker system, so it works for streaming music via bluetooth from my tablet. But unless ibuy a more modern tv i am stuck. So buyers should check that their tv is of recent vintage with an optical outlet.

The sound bar arrived really quickly and was packaged well, i’ve connected it to a lg 65’tv via optical cable. The sound fills the room with rich and clear surround sound, watching movies is amazing and music videos are something to behold. Set up was very easy, i’ve used the sound bar via bluetooth and its just as good watched return of the king(lotr) with no drop in sound or quality. I love this item and would recommend it to anyone.

Great sound but the av cable is to small.

Sound quality could be a bit better. But easy to set up would recommend it.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Awesome sound bar
  • Awesome but should come with batteries.
  • Soundbar will not work with my LG TV which is an older version of around 8 or 9years.

It’s awesome, compact, not much in the way of base but i expected that. I was really after something compact to fit in my setup. It’s far better than the lg speakers on the telly. No batteries come with the remote i was a little disappointed as i couldn’t set it up straight out the box.

I am not that much into writing reviews, but this product deserves to get a postive one. After doing research on varieties of sound bars with bluetooth/rca connectivity options, i came across this product. Product discription and 5 star reviews convinced me to spend £86 on it. It is made very well and the quality of sound is also perfect.I can simply switch between bluetooth and rca mode with no much hassle.

meidong Sound bar, Good for the price.

This works well for such a cheap price. Wanted to try a sound bar and this does the job. Next time i would buy one with an hdmi connection but this does ok in the meantime.

Pretty good, a lot better than the speakers on my lg smart tv. At first was not too impressed but i didn’t know speakers need time to be ‘run in’. So they got better after a couple of weeks.

The sound from my tv is as good. Guess it’s worth 85 quid though but returned anyway.

Comments from buyers

“Visually stunning, but the wooly, muffled audio lets it down.
, Enhances sound quality
, Good for the price.

Good sound and comes with all cables to meet any requirement used optical cable with my tv also bluetooth works well to listen to music would recommend great for the price paid.

Lovely looking, sturdy, well made, and surprised by how heavy this sound bar is. I like the different colour led light which changes colour from red to blue, green, violet and indigo depending on which function you select. Remote is a good size, sturdy, easy to navigate, takes 2 aaa batteries which were not supplied. The sound is acceptable, nothing special to be honest. It sounds a bit boxy and all mid-range, with no punchy bass and no crisp top notes. It has a sort of muffled, emptyness sound to it, as if the equalizer has been messed around with and not set up properly. It’s got vague elements of richness, threats of stomping bass and just a glance of crisp, punchy top notes, but it all gets warbled, wooly and confused just when you think your ears are going to get a treat. I was going to send it back for a refund, but a friend with poor hearing really liked the look of it and he thinks the sound is acceptable to his hearing range. Paid just £26ish for this from amazon warehouse, and my mate now has it for £25 and owes me a bag of chipsit really is not hifi, nowhere near it, but it’s so cool to look at.

Arrived very promptly, so easy to set up, looks good and the sound is excellent. Came with optical lead for tv and audio lead for the dvd player, auxiliary lead for ipod etc. Bluetooth connectivity is simple, can play music from my android phone and the sound is very good.

Good quality soundbar with more than ample volume, also very easy to set up with easy to follow instructions. Only thing i would comment on there seems to be no individual control over bass and treble output but perhaps someone can correct me on this?. Which otherwise would have made it perfect. Everything else about it is good and really enhances the puny sound from the micro speakers in the tv.

Optical didn’t work well, with the supplied cable or another purchased separately. The sound was clipped, too bassy and there was clicking noises. Rca connection, on the other hand, works fine. Well-defined sound, plenty of power and a good looking piece of kit.

Yamaha Electronics Yamaha MusicCast YAS306 Soundbar, This Yamaha Butterthan sonos playbase

Can’t see the volume level on the tv screen , which is a bit annoying got to listen how the sound changes instead of being able to just put the volume on certain level.

It has taken me sometime to get round to review this. For one, i used to have the samsung crystal air sound bar system. Which anyone who has one, knows that it has an active sub wuffer. I was a little surprised when this one did not come with an hdmi connection port. But after configuring it to use the optical out (cable supplied), i realised just what a great move that was. It does not need one of the valuable hdmi connections on the tvthe sound is lovely. The surround effect is brilliant. The dynamic range, is lovely. If you haven’t guessed, i really, really like this sound bar. It fits nicely under the tv, and the supplied optical out makes it more than flexible enough to be moved to where you need it.

The sound bar a great all in one package. The bass is great for built in subwoofers. The general sound quality is great as well. The only downside is the simulated surround sound isn’t that amazing. But the overall package is still great.

Comments from buyers

“Simply Awesome Soundbar
, Excellent sound quality
, I love this thing. Great sound!

Very easy to connect – even for beginners in wireless music streaming. Just download free app to your phone or tablet and once connected it’s good to go. On iphone it took no time – on android it took about 10 mins which was annoying as it immediately asked to update it too. Spotify doesn’t work so smoothy with it. Did not work on our android tablet but worked on iphone – however kept cutting it. The other music streaming channels worked best and radio channels were great too. We also connected the tv via de audio connections on the soundbar. For the price point it is, as an all in one system – it is good. The sound is clear and superior to the speakers we had for a price point that is still affordable. My husband is a lot more knowledgeable and has been into speakers his whole life so he notices a bit of compromise to work with mp3 and digital – however as he puts it – to get the next level it would cost 10 times more.

Sound quality is superband i use mostly wireless apple airplay for movies (no delay or sync issue) and wireless spotify connect for music and optical audio output for ps4.

Seen all reviews etc and am convinced i want this but for the price. It’s a free market i gues.

I have sonos playbase and this yamaha is butter than sound with great bluetooth.

Purchased this soundbar almost 3 months back. I am deeply impressed by the sound quality of this product. It was fairly easy to set this up. One of the main reasons to buy this product was to have a single unit which can create some virtual surround sound effect. I will not say that it provides a true surround sound experience but it is decent enough and solves my purpose. The music cast app is really useful – i can switch on/off soundbar using the app in my mobile, i can switch between the modes based on what i am watching or listening, and can control every aspect of this soundbar using this app. The bass on this soundbar is really good. Watching some dolby commercials using movie mode really fills up & shakes up a standard sized living room. The only reason i wont give this product 5 star is because it lacks hdmi port and 7. 1 surround sound is not really as effective as a true surround sound systems having separate sub woofers and speakers.

Excellent sound quality, the app (which can be a little flakey) allows you to control all the settings from a mobile device such as a smartphone. We have a double height ceiling in our lounge and the tv speakers struggle to project the sound forwards (relying on bounce from the ceiling that isn’t there) so this was a massive improvement, pushing the sound forwards rather than upwards. As a consequence, and using the setting within the soundbar, the audio from the tv is much clearer now, but we also have the added benefit of using the soundbar as a bluetooth speaker, or you can play music to it through the app – which means you can stream your own music, internet radio, a media server on your network.

Great sound, whether you are playing a video game, watching a movie or listening to music. Also wireless sound streaming from iphone and mac book works great.

I reviewed bose soundbars but they were quite expensive so i thought of ordering yamaha yas306 sound bar and take a risk – i must say, it exceeded my expectations – really great sound – deep base, very crisp and clear sound. It’s simply a great add on to your tv for much richer sound experience at such an affordable price. I am using it with sony 55 inch tv and it works like a magic and it fits nicely under the tv. I am now thinking of adding yamaha subwoofer as well to maximize the base and create a cenima like experience. Cons:only slight annoyance is that volume indication doesn’t come on the tv – so it’s difficult to know the current volume of the soundbar e. Is it on full or medium or how far can i go further etc. And finally, quick set up guide could be improved – as it took me few minutes to figure out on what to do for the set up. Overall great soundbar for a very reasonable price.

Shipping was delayed but overall really good product.

This is a quality soundbar which produces good audio. It’s quite chunky and has a bit of heft about it (at least partially due to the two built-in sub-woofers), but it sits comfortably in front of my tv. Set-up is very simple, just plug it in and connect the optical cable to your tv. Inputs for blu-ray/dvd players and so on are also included, although there’s no hdmi. The sound has good bass – made even better by the bass enhancement setting – adding real punch which soundbars can often lack. The surround sound is not great, it gives a bit more body to sound at the slight expense of some fidelity, but the surround aspect itself is questionable at best. Devices like this are never going to give you the performance of a 5. 1 system, but then their purpose is primarily to give you bang for your buck in a smaller footprint. The yas306 has plenty of volume and is very easy to get configured just how you like it.

Ok but still need to be improvements.

Absolutely love this product, the sound quality with the 2 inbuilt subwoofers and surround sound aspect is on another level. True cinema feeling right in your living room. The only downsides would be, it’s not foolproof and can be a bit difficult to set up, i’m 26 and shouldn’t really have any problems with modern technology, but it did take a little while to set up & i would like to add that i would prefer to keep it in front of the television, only because it is quite heavy. Overall, i’m very impressed with the soundbar & would recommend it to anyone looking to upgrade.

Incredible sound and very easy to set up. I installed the yamaha musiccast controller app from the google play store. Using the app, i was able to connect the soundbar to my wireless network. After that, i was able to play music through the soundbar by tapping ‘this phone’ in the app. All the above work through the network. You can switch to bluetooth, though i prefer just leaving it to use the local area network. To use the server source in the app, you need to set it up and on pc it requires windows media player 12. Once set up, tapping on server in the app opens your music library on your pc ready for playback. If you want to play your music from the pc through the soundbar, you can use a nice feature in windows 10.

But you do not get visual reading of the controls on the soundbar used on the remote.

Very impressed with this i know yamaha are known for music products and they dint diversify i can see why i compared this to a £2000 bose sound bar in the shop the yamaha was far better much cleaner bass and pure clarity what a bargain indeed. Some of the bose bars didn’t even allow to bluetooth your music from your ipad.

This is a quality sound bar i am very pleased with and like the idea of adding additional musiccast items in near future. Great sound and another top class product from yamaha.

They’ve thought of virtually everything in this loudspeaker system. Setupconsidering the options available, setup is straightforward. You can just plug and play, but getting the device on your wifi requires use of the accompanying mobile app and the bluetooth connection. Once connected up, this can act as a multi-room device. The device can be wall or table mounted. A template for wall mounting is included. The speakers are on the face with the indicator lights, so if wall-mounted, these face towards you. Inputsthis has analogue (rca) and digital inputs (optical and coaxial), and can accept audio over bluetooth (including apple airplay) and wifi. It can also stream internet radio. It can be controlled with buttons on the device itself, the included remote, or the mobile app.

Sound is incredible and was so easy to wall mount under my tv. Linked up to my musiccast set up and can now listen to tunes in the living room. Would highly recommend over more expensive items.

Great bass and i love the surround setting, so many connection options. The infrared pass through for the tv remote is fantastic.I’ve set mine up so i can just use the tv remote to control both my tv and sound bar at the same time. I’ve tried several sound bars in the past and this is my favourite one piece. There is connection for an external subwoofer if required.

The delivery was fast and i’m really happy with this soundbar. But one think i miss, it’s the plug for europe. I know i ordered the soundbar in england, but i hope yamaha deliver it with an plug for all countries.

QSPORTPEAK Soundbar Bluetooth Sound Bar Wired Wireless Bluetooth Surround Sound Bar : Four Stars

Really good sound quality for it’s size.

I bought this to correct the excessively tinny sound from a small tv. Set up wwas easy thanks to the 3. 5 mm jack input which connected (lead supplied) direcly to the tv headphone socket. The result was excellent and cured the sound problem.

However the remote that came with it refuses to work.

It’s good but it cuts out now and again so you have to press the mode button on the remote to get the sound back. If i buy a dearer one can it be picked up by the delivery guy?.

Made a big difference to sound on small tv. Which was tinny and high pitched. Bluetooth works well with my phone.

The product was delivered on time and well wrapped. The soundbar quality is good and has removed the tinny sound from the new cello tv i bought last week. However, the instructions are awful, so if your buying a soundbar for the first time like me and intend to use it on a tv, just plug the lead into the headphone socket and it’ll work. Sorry if this is obvious, but not to an old wrinkly like me, who was attempting to plug it into the audio out (or in) key until my daughter came to the rescue.

Pretty decent for the price fast delivery.

Good place of kit for the money good sound not tinny easy to set up came with all the cables i neededhave had this a few weeks and it has started cutting out every so often and you have to turn it on again via remote.

A decent speaker & easy to set up for blue tooth etc & a good sound & volume, the battery charge last a decent time to.

I have a smart tv at a static caravan with rubbish sound quality. This made all the difference.

Wow amazing sound clean and strong.

Great sound quality, though the bluetooth is terrible. Cuts in and out a lot and there is a terribly short range (tried with multiple devices)aux cable serves it’s purpose pretty well.

Lightweight, great portability and affordable.

I bought this primarily because there was mention of “treble” and the optic connection; in the, “frequently bought together on amazon” it gave the soundbar and an optic lead. There is nowhere on the soundbar to accept an optic imput ???i have not ,as yet, managed to get any sound out of it ,apart from a garbled ,” bluetooth myugh ” (i assume bluetooth mode), but i shall try again tomorrow.

Did not include optical connection as described in web page.

I just brought one today when it came my thoughts were this is so small but when i hook it up to my tv it was a blast it’s brilliant i am in the cinema i love it thank you.
