On opening the box i found that there were some small scratches on the soundbar and a large scratch on the subwoofer which was annoying considering it is brand new. I have decided not to return the system as it was very cheap and the hassle is not worth it. I set up my system using an optical cable which was easy and positioned the soundbar in front of my 55′ tv and positioned the subwoofer behind my chair. I set about watching the blues brothers on amazon prime and the sound delivered by the soundbar and subwoofer is truly impressive. The bass is excellent and works very well with the music and action. Apart from the scratches, the only other disappointments are that the remote control which is quite small and very flimsy and the display is behind the speaker material and so it is difficult to tell what setting it is on. For the money it is an excellent soundbar and subwoofer and combined with the 3-year warranty too it is unbeatable. Recommended but not with its problems.
Only issues i had was pealable plastic was under some of the feet etc so it’s difficult to remove. Bright red display is a little annoying.
Very fast delivery, sound quality and volume for the price are very good, easy to install and connect but when connected via bluetooth or an optical cable it keeps going out of sync. Have to pause what is being watched and then switch off the sound bar and switch it on again. Its really aggravating and spoils an otherwise very good product. Update: customer services very good and quickly arranged a replacement that i am currently waiting on for delivery. Will update when re-installed.

Comments from buyers
“Fantastic soundbar & subwoofer in this range, Fantastic Soundbar., Fantastic product, excellent value”
Seems pretty good for the money. The quality of the product is good. Easy to set up – although i am still trying to find the best position for the subwoofer to combat interference and get a sound that i am happy with. I like it though and it has certainly improved the sound from my sony bravia tv – even with the subwoofer teething issue.
Great delivery time, looked good, easy setup i brought the optical lead as well. The reason i could only award one star was it only lasted a maximum of five minutes before the soundbar stopped working. Completely dead the subwoofer still showed it was receiving power. I’m now gong to wait before i get a different soundbar but have lost faith in this brand. Plus didn’t have time to test the product and it’s capabilities.
I’m not up to date with music gear any more so i just compare my mates £600 one to my £60 one. Yeah his sounds twice as good and is twice as loud, but its also 10 times the price. I just want more volume with good enough sound quality to enjoy it loud and that’s what i got.
I had initially bought the snowdon but felt it lacked punch and base so returned it and got the ben nevis instead & wow. I was a bit worried initially as there weren’t many reviews but this system is awesome 👏 have tried the aux and bt and fm.
Great product super easy to install but the remote is rubbish . Real shame as this lets the product down. You have to be careful of the subwoofer location and the bt connection, but thats not a huge issue. Real shame the remove is so cheap.
Not bad for the offer price but if i had to pay the full price i think 🤔 it’s probably not quite worth it, sounds great but bass isn’t as good as stated, only has 10 settings for bass and actually does distort slightly unlike the description insists, other than that, nice and loud, great sound for the price and great options 😊.
A fantastic sound bar that was delivered promptly. I was a bit apprehensive about the quality given that it’s a relatively lesser known brand. But it arrived promptly and packaging was impressive. The build quality of the actual product was surprisingly good. Once connected to my lg tv using an optical cable, i was very impressed with the sound quality. The sound was crisp and the music was clear. I must admit i am not an audio expert but even ar sufficiently loud volume test it was very pleasant and without any distortion. I could not notice any connection drop in the subwoofer but could be because it was only placed next to the main soundbar. Only two minor criticism is that display on the soundbar is a bit difficult to read as it’s behind the mash and the remote is also bit flimsy. But other than that i can’t fault it on build quality and sound quality.
We are really pleased with this soundbar. We have it connected to the tv via an optical cable, and then also use the bluetooth function for listening to music. Great sound with great bass and options to adjust bass/treble. We had some initial issues with the remote control but the seller kindly sent us out another one and now it’s working fine. We haven’t had any problems with connectivity between the soundbar and subwoofer, but then we have them sitting fairly close to each other. Overall this appears to be an excellent product for the price.
Great bass, although my actual tv speaker sounds great, this is used with my pc. It will need some further adjustment like from realteks audio manager, using an eq e. G but otherwise it is a great piece of kit. Wish it turned off after a certain amount of time of no noise but thats minor.
I tried setting this up the easiest way i thought, so i had an optic cable, simple right?that didn’t work for some reason. I could play music on my phone through it, but no sound from the tv. So i switched to the old school aux, haven’t used that bad boy since the days of ps1. That didn’t work either, for some reason, it wouldn’t play the sound through my television. So, as a last resort, i went with the headphone jack, which surprise surprise, is always on the wrong side to literally every tv i’ve ever owned. So now i’ve got an upside-down sound bar which is finally working, and come on at a hell of a volume. My neighbour hates any noise, and it made me laugh, because the sub speaker literally points down at the floor, so i know she’s down there thinking of ways to end my life. She’s a miserable old hag. Now it’s working – through the headphone jack ☹️ – it actually sounds pretty good.
So far everything seems good, bought this to use with my pc and it’s more than loud enough and quality seems ok. The cables that come with it are very short though and as others have said the display on the bar is very hard to read unless you’re quite close and looking at it straight on. I’m sure if you’re heavily into audio you wouldn’t be satisfied with this but for the average person who just wants some better audio for their tv or pc then i can’t see any reason you’d pay more than this.
I’ve wanted a soundbar for a while, but never quite found the right one. I was a little sceptical due to the varied reviews, but at this price point, it was worth a punt. Let me tell you, this is an amazing device. Took about 2 minutes to get it up and running, hardest part was moving the tv out to get to the plug sockets ha ha. Bluetooth connected fast, no issues at all. I’ve got fabulous treble and higher pitches from the soundbar, the bass from the subwoofer is amazing. I’ve had to turn the bass down to find a pleasing spot.
Very good sound for the price. I connected my mobile and play my music through the sound bar.
Fantastic sound for a small price. Bought to replace a more expensive sony ht-ct80 2. 1 that failed after 4 months. This has a far better sound as well ‘bargain’.
Sound is good, is not the best sound ever i have beats pill +, it’s definitely louder. For the money you pay they are amazing. If you want a cheap but decent sound bar go for this one. Like people said connection between subwoofer and sound bar is rubbish but who cares i have it right next to sound bar and it sounds great.
Bought this to replace the an old surround sound system that i was using with my vinyl player, the old system just had too many wires. The only wires with this are the two power cables (for the sound-bar and subwoofer) and my line in cable from my vinyl player, very happy. Great sound quality, was quite surprised at how good the sound quality was considering the price. Within five minuets of opening the box i had it set up and listening to my vinyl collection. The remote control is fine enough, like a lot of sound-bars the remote is small thin, almost flimsy looking, thats the only thing i would prefer when buying products like this is to have then invest a little more time in the designing and the quality of the remote. The remote comes with a optional double sided velcro strip which is suggested to be used to secure it to the speaker for safekeeping, i have mine stuck on my side table so the remote is always just a hands reach away. You get a three year warranty if you register your product, it is literally a matter of choosing your product and entering your name and email address.
The soundbar sounds fine, and it is well made. 5mm aux cable causes a big hum when connected to an audio device. Tried a decent cable and all is well. Such a shame to ruin a good product with rubbish accessories.
Very good,well built sound bar & bass speaker, for the price( bought in the sale)good sound,decimate upgrade from my standard tv. Remote control is good but very small & i don’t think it will be long before the back of the sofa claims another victim?. Delivery was next day with prime. My only niggle with the whole package is that it should come with an optical lead as standard, as the supplied lead is pretty useless. So if you are going to buy one,do yourself a favour and get an optical cable at the same time & you will save yourself a lot of grief.
I have only used the line in so can’t comment on the bluetooth but it has just the right balance of sound throughout the range. The only negative, and this is just a very minor niggle, is that there is a slight hiss when you have nothing playing. It’s not a game changer and i will still give this 5 stars as everything else is great.
I like this sound bar i know it’s got mixed reviews and that nearly put me off but for the small price i thought i’ll risk it and i’m glad i did it’s very easy to set up it takes about 10 min and looks a good size too it looks the part and works perfectly the sub is on the opposite side of the room and picks up signal every time it’s loud enough to enjoy a movie and listen to music on its quite powerful and fills the room with sound it’s got plenty of ways to connect to it too bluetooth/aux/usb and optical cable so it very good for all rangers of devices which is fantastic for the little price of £59. 98 the only reason it’s getting 4 stars is the screen has been put behind the metal mesh covering the display so you can’t see what it says who ever came up with that idea wants firing lol it was not a well thought out discussion that fore sure but it’s perfect in every other way i’m pleasantly surprised with this top buy i would definitely recommend.
Got this on offer and have to say it was well worth the money. 1 surround system and loved the sound it produced. I was downscaling and looking for something easy and with less wires. This produces good sound and eliminates a tangle of speaker wires behind the tv. Because it’s virtual surround sound – it isn’t quite as good as true 5. 1, but i never expected it to be. It is, however, a perfectly reasonable compromise.
