MEGACRA Soundbar – fine. But misled.

Love it i had a roth ll and it was playing up so i decided to send for this one, what a great choice its so much clearer than the roth.

Just the right size and does the job perfectly.

Out the box noticed the quality is pretty good, nice weight and feel. Hooked it up to my amazon echo and then the echo dot, both bluetoothed without problem, sounds great, hooked it up to my 40′ hisense tv via optical cable, wow what a difference to the normal tv speakers. Tried both tv and then xbox one. Love the fact i can also plug in a usb stick with mp3`s on and it sounds a damn sight better than my pc speaker system. All in all for £80, i am more than happy with it and would recommend it. Update: soundbar seems to have disconnected from my amazon echo, it connects but there is now no sound from either the echo or the soundbar, it still connects without problem to my iphone 6s+, so no idea what the problem is. Megacra limited want me to send in a video of the soundbar not working.

Easy to set up, sound quality is fantastic i’d definitely recommend.

Love the blue tooth element. Can travel around the house and play my music anywhere.

A very good purchase for the price. It easily produces enough bass that is both satisfying and exsilerating. The only down side is the 3d effect of the speaker. For a highlighted feature it’s more of a gimmick that performs at a mediocre level. There are some instance where it performs at a level that gives a reasonable experience. Overall the product is a good buy for a lower end soundbar at its price.

  • Very Nice quality Sound Bar for a Great Price
  • Great Value, some minor grievances
  • Great for the price

Excellent value and can’t find fault with the soundbar. Nice crisp sound with a nice deep and crisp treble. Easy to use and easy to install as all you have to do is use template supplied. Only had it couple of days and so far i couldn’t be happier, i would recommend this to anyone.

Great product easy to install and works fine. No adjustments to bass or treble though just 3 choices of their choosing.

Great sound, came with an optical cable in the box. The 3 profiles are good too.

Great sound and excellent after service from megacra, i would recommend this soundbar to anyone.

Needed one of these for the gym as the television sound is somewhat drowned out by the loud machines. This was easy to install and works perfectly with excellent sound quality. Good purchase and reasonably priced.

Unfortunately all the reviews are muddled together for each size of soundbar – this review is for the smaller 28inch model. Well made, solid perfectly packed with everything you need and good conectivity. A shame the reviews on here are general with only one found for this size of soundbar from megacra. I found there to be very little improvement on the sound quality or clarity compared to my 37′ toshiba lcd. There are no sound presets on this smaller model so no way of adjusting eq not clearly explained in the description. I had hoped for clear sharp sound but it sounds a bit muddled on most sources and unable to adjust. I would imagine and hope the larger size soundbars are more dynamic. May well be an improvement on very poor tv audio but not mine. Its not expensive so maybe i expected too much but all is not lost as i will use for my computer screen and streaming box.

Easily connects to the tv with optical cable, which is supplied, although is a cheap cable and i may buy a better one in the future. Also comes with wall brackets and a handy template for drilling in the right places if you want to do that. Easy to set up just remember to either set your tv to external speaker mode or turn your volume down. Other wise it sounds very echoey. The sound of the speaker is a little tinny at times but still decent. I would of liked to be able to chance the base but this option isn’t there. Dthe speaker is a good size and worth the money.

This is a great soundbar for the price. The sound from my flatscreen tv was never brilliant but this is really boosting it up. Have tried connecting via the aux to the headphone socket of the tv and also via the optical cable. Both work great but you have to remember to turn the tv sound down (on my tv at least) or else you get sound from both which is a bit echo-y as others have pointed out. The fact that there is an echo means that the soundbar is a tiny bit out of synch but, for the most part, this is un-noticeable. I love my new soundbar and dr. Who will never be the same again with this in place.

Good sound dar easy to set up would recommend.

Nice sound when it works, it’s ok on optical and usb, but the bluetooth works when it wants, at first it was great, but now alexa can’t connect and neither can my phone hence the 3 stars.

The sound is great and the customer support outstanding. I had a problem with the sound fading in and out after a few weeks of purchasing. Contacted their customer service who persisted with trying to resolve the issue and finally they sent me a file to upload directly to the bar.

Why choose us-we are recommeded brand on amazon brand list, all MEGACRA products under 12 month worry free warranty.

Excellent sound bar for the price. I was surprised by how good it is. It looks great and is easy to setup.

This is a great buy for the money. I bought mine for a home cinema room but i initially had some unrelated issues with latency due to having to use a hdmi for image and a bluetooth connection for the audio output from the 4th gen apple tv which i had connected to the projector. Fortunately i was able to resolve this cheaply with a hdmi sound splitter. The speakers are very decent and the soundbar is easy to use with a nice quality look and feel.

Not knowing much about sound-bars i relied upon reviews on amazon to make my selection. On reading the reviews i was unaware that all the megacra models were lumped together within that listing, what i wanted was a sound-bar that i could adjust between 3 – sound modes (as with the larger megacra models) what i got was the 28′ model (which is what i wanted) but with no adjustment, apart from volume. Supporting my mistake, when i received notification/confirmation of my order the link in the email took me to the larger megacra sound-bars which have the 3 – sound modes so i didn’t realise my mistake until the item arrived and i read through the booklet and physically examined the sound-bar. Anyway like i say its a good sound-bar but not what i expected.

0 connectivity 3 audio modes 60 watt 34 inch sound bar with 2 bass reflex tubes, 4 speakers, remote control and wall mountablethis review is for the 34′ model item model number: up-s11-black. Are slightly different from the lager model megacra s9620, 38’the sound bar looks really smart and is quite heavy 3kg thanks to the good quality speakers inside it. Its 60w power which is more than i need to fill my sitting room with good quality sound. It has various inputs including optical, digital coaxial and rca left and right. I have it connected to a 43′ lg 4k smart tv via the optical lead (included in the box) the sound is truly excellent i’m no expert but i am fussy about the sound and this passes the test. It has a remote control which works very well to change volume, input source and sound mode. There are three sound modes✔ 3d surround mode: , sr-1(music), sr-2(movie) as everyone’s tastes and setup are slightly different just choose the mode you like depending on what you are watching. I’ve been using the 3d mode for watching movies and netflix & amazon.

The unit is very simple to setup and the sound quality via the optical cable is superb. The bluetooth connection to my smartphone is also very simple and again it sounds great. The remote control is useful and simple too. Just need a universal remote now :).

For the price it is a really goodunit, it has a crisp clear sound and no issues with connectivity. I have used it on bluetooth for phones and ipads, and optically linked to the tv. Unless you live in the middle of nowhere and are requiring extreme base, this will be adequate for most people’s needs. Compares to the top end sound system on my hot tub, except it’s not waterproof.

Crisp Soundbar with Enhanced Bass: 3 inches full range drivers and dual bass ports that bring the richer and deeper bass, boost a loud sound that fills the room without distortion.

I’ve had one of these for a year having tired of the thin squeeky sound from our tv, which wasn’t cheap. Very happy with it and i’ve bought another one ofr our other tv. Easy to install with all ncessary connections included, it also performs well with bluetooth.

Bought this to try to improve my hearing of some of the poor diction in us films etc and on the whole does this fairly well, perhaps a little too much bass for the spoken word but music is good. Only drawback is i can’t get it to work with netflx,ok with sky, bbc etc, tried looking for cures and it seems lots of other people have trouble with netflix so why have the suppliers not tried to fix it or at least offer some guidance.

I have a 2008 model sony bravia that is an excellent tv so i’m loathed to buy a new one,but because of its age i don’t have the digital optical or coaxial connections on my tv although i do have them on my humax dvr which works when connected this way but not very well because the sound from the tv comes through as well as the sound from the soundbar and i found it difficult to get the right balance. That left me with the right and left analogue ports on the tv to the jack on the on the soundbar or, the headphone jack on the tv to the left and right analogue ports on the soundbar both options via the rca cable supplied. The second option works very well for me as it mutes the sound of the tv which to my ears gives a clearer sound from the soundbar without it being distorted by the tv’s sound. Also connecting this way allows me to use my tvs remote control to control the sound from the soundbar. Having used it for a week i find it makes the sound clearer and there seems to be less mumbling, and i don’t have to keep asking my wife what people have said on the tv.

Amazing sound, great build quality and such amazing value. This sound bar well outstrips it’s price. The sound is well and above the quality of so many so call high brands i have owned/used. Great bass, outstanding high tones and superb speech / mid tones. This is a biog bugger and really looks the part. Nice and weighty with clean lines all round. I have cranked this baby up to max volume without a single distortion or undue vibration creeping in. Simple wonderful and such great value :).

We are using this with a blaupunkt 32inch tv – what an improvement to the overall sound quality – strongly recommend.

Received sound bar today and the set up was very simple. L connected it via blue tooth but the voices were out of sync with the television but when l hard wired it with the connections l got with the bar,the sound was very good better than expected. L would have preferred it to be done with bluetooth but will settle for it being hard wired maybe it is my reception. On the whole l am pleased with my purchase and another thing it is bigger than l thought it would be.

Great value sound barpros-great price: on the cheaper scale-connection options:there is various connection options including bluetooth and optical, i don’t notice a drop in audio quality over bluetooth which is great-build quality: very well build sturdy unit-sound: i amen’t able to compare to other sound bars but what i can say is this significantly improves audio compared to your tv. For the price bracket i very much doubt you will be dissapionted with the quality, if you are buying then comparing to something far more expensive then you may be able to find faultscons:the light: the light on the front is annoying, imho it should dim out when audio is in use, there is no need for a light to be showing in the bar, it is even more annoying if using bluetooth as the light flashes bluepreset audio options: whilst the options are useful and do improve different types of things you are using it for like music or movies it would be good to have more than 3 options.

Control the Soundbar with Your TV Remote: With IR Learning function which could be programmed by your TV/cable box/universal remote to control the power, mute and volume.

This connects with our tv (non bluetooth) effortlessly and our mobiles.

This is not an expensive soundbar but let me tell you now. Works brilliantly with modern tech. Looks good too and its easy to use.

Great sound bar for the money. Used for the television in the bedroom. No distortion even with volume on high.

Seems good quality for the price, generally no complaints. Does cut out completely when only quiet sound is coming from the pc though, which isn’t a problem i’ve had with any other speaker. Also occasionally cuts audio for a second or so without any apparent reason, but this isn’t too noticeable on the whole.

I am no ‘techi’ and bought this based on reviews to replace one that failed after thirteen monthsvery pleased so far – easy to set up as long as you know that optical plugs have a cap on them, which needs to be removedbut excellent so far.

Superb sound bar with decent bass and tremendous clarity. Looks good, well-made and pleasingly heavy. Comes complete with optical & rca leads and is so easy to install, you don’t need the handbook that comes with it.

Wired and Wireless Connections: Connect with Optical, RCA inputs(cable included) or Pair via Bluetooth for seamless streaming from various devices.

Beats my 4k tv speakers all ends up with the 3 preset modes also very handy. 3d mode with suitable films makes it a different and excellent movie experience. Have paired my iphone and tablet thro bluetooth ( which is painless ) with it and the sound is great. To date haven’t experienced any glitches as with some reviewers.

Bought as a rescuer for a 40′ tv with low sound levels and the fantastic ability to buzz like a herd of wasps stuck in an upturned beer glass when the sound was up high enough to actually hear anything. Actually contacted the seller to say the sound didn’t work properly through digital until i realised that i’d used my old optical cable and not the one included. You must use the included cable and it switches fine between bluetooth and optical with a splendorous ease.

You know as soon as you feel the weight of it and the way it is packed that it is a quality product. I bought it purely to listen to my music downloads on my iphone – and it is brilliant. Excellent bass and treble with a huge reserve of volume, and at a price that represents great value. I’m fussy with sound, as my main speakers in the house are all b and o, so i’m very confident in recommending this product.

A bit bigger than i was expecting – i hadn’t checked the measurements properly so my fault really – but it fits under my lg 32′ tv. Works using spdif from both my tv and youview box (not at the same time). The sound is well balanced across the spectrum with not too heavy (but noticeable) bass and very even mid- and top-ranges. No, it’s not as good as you’d get from bose, or similar, but for less than £70 (i bought it on black friday) you do get very adequate sound that improves significantly on the tinny ‘dross’ you get from a modern tv.

A chunky soundbar that looks the biz. Not much bass though but that makes it perfect for my bedroom.

Good quality, reasonable price.

Great sound barpros-amazing price-connection options:there is various connection options including bluetooth and optical,-build quality: very well built, looks expensive which i like-sound: absolutely on par with other top brand soundbars.

This product has greatly improved my listening experience as a viewer with the hearing problems associated with age. Apart from the need to raise the television to stop the bar from obscuring the standby button on my set. The only operating problem was the need to remember that the remote control provided also controls the sound level – the television remote control will mute the sound altogether if inadvertently used instead.

    Good product, easy to install. Good, clear sound when playing through bluetooth or optical cable. Size wise, it is a suitable height to fit into a tv stand; it is a good length, although it was a surprise how big it was; and the width has sufficient space to fit the connecting cables.

  7. This review is for the 28 model. The sound definitely improves from the tv with an overall rich sound. I use the eq on the tv to improve further as this bar doesn’t have any presets. The only downside is that the increments to volume control are too much, the sound can seem to low then one press of the volume and it’s to loud. This isn’t to much of an issue with movies but on standard tv channels, it can be, especially late at night. Overall though, i’m quite pleased with the purchase.
