An impressive bit of kit- great sound with bluetooth connection. Considering this at the budget end of the market this is quite impressive. First of all it’s feature-laden and easy enough to place say at the bottom of a reasonably sized tv/media stand and it can be wall mounted too if you need that option. It has a really good finish which makes the soundbar look a lot more expensive than it actually is and it matches my toshiba tv perfectly but of course that’s a variable for other people. The big, grandstand feature though has to be it’s bluetooth capability. I found this straightforward enough to set up and extremely effective. You can connect up to seven devices to it and i found it a seamless process. The sound quality was top notch too with the six speakers producing a crisp, manageable sound range. You get the leads you need too to get you started. Difficult to find faults really- perhaps the instructions could be a bit clearer but just put a bit of time aside to work through them and you’ll be okay.
Good value piece of kit that has improved the sound of the lcd tv 200%. Optical cable socket not over secure, but good enough since it won’t be moving. All told very happy with it and recommend it to others.
Good sound with some great connections at the back please. Good sound with some great connections at the back please note some high end sound bars at twice the price do not offer thisthe bluetooth feature v4. Here are the specifications for the König Piano 4:

Excellent product, good replacement for pc speakers. . Bought this to replace my pc speakers (4. It feels solid and well built and the hard plastics do not ‘creak’ like some cheap products do. Set up was simple; just a plug and adaptor and it came with all the connections you need. I was sceptical at first as i attempted to plug the optical lead in and nothing worked. 5mm audio lead into the front of my pc and that worked and so did the supplied hdmi cable connection (incidently the hdmi cable has a right angle ‘folding action’ which allows you to save space behind the speaker and butt it up against a wall). I paired my samsung note 3 with the soundbar and that was also very easy and worked as it should. Sound replication had crisp and clear treble with good bassy tones however this was at a mid range volume.
A quality and value solution to poor tv sound. I recently installed a comparable soundbar from a major tv manufacturer for my parents and was therefore pleased to try this version from konig for comparison. This hav sb-500 soundbar is a single piece unit measuring 80cm x 9cm x 8. 5 cm and has 4 upper/mid-range units with 2 sub-woofers delivering up to 60w rms. The sb-500 does not have a separate sub-woofer box or satellite units. The up side of this approach is there’s no satellite speakers to find room for and cables to trail. To me, this is the sort of solution that will make good the inevitably tinny sound from today’s wafer thin tvs but stops short of going down the route of a home theatre installation. The soundbar looks well-made and is finished in piano black with a black mesh at the front through which you can glimpse the profile of the driver units etc. Its low profile design isn’t too intrusive and its rubber feet make sure it remains in position. The first thing that is encouraging is that in the box you get everything that you actually need to get going – the soundbar, a power cable, remote (with 2 aaa batteries), an optical spdif cable, audio cable, rca cable, wall mount plus mounting screws etc.

My concerns on the hav-sb500. . A must buy even with issues. Read on?i thought this be a good buy, i wished i’d listened to my friends. From that day i got the sound bar i got problems, i knew by the reviews issues can accrue. Nothing like i experienced, i got no sound what so ever from the unit, people will say this is an unfair review but i’m being honest. We eventually got sound but only by the bluetooth, headphone jack nothing by hdmi, optical cable’s this is the reason why i wanted this model hav-sb500. At leased i had sound now, but not the way i intend. I even sent an e-mail to konig for help as the manual was next to useless. Its been 3 days since, i have now got full sound through hdmi, optical, aux and headphone jack. Not due to konig e -mailing me, just by thinking logically it must be the leads supplied; it was.
Great but responds to other device’s remote controls. I love the sound output from this, i have used it on bluetooth, optical and aux connections (all the cable are supplied making it easy to play 🙂 ) for ease of use, despite lack of detailed instructions, and sound i’d give this bar a 5. However it has a huge issue for me in that it responds to my remote controls for now tv, freesat (humax) and my samsung tv. For example using the 0 on my samsung remote changes the input channel used by the soundbar whether or not it is connected to the tv, hence when changing channels / selecting programs on any of the mentioned devices i lose sound and have to re-select the correct input. Worse if i use the hdmi inputs and connect to the tv via the hdmi out then using the humax remote (or the now tv remote) loses me sound and vision as the soundbar changes it’s input channel. Note that none of my devices responds to the soundbar remote it is a one way issue. Amazon were great and sent out a replacement but it now seems that the issue is with the design as the new soundbar does exactly the same. Note that despite the above i have decided to keep the soundbar as i like the soundi now only use one of the optical connections (connected to tv)and bluetooth for music and accept that i lose sound and once i have selected my channel / film etc then i need to use the sounbar’s remote to reset the input channel.
