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.
I’ve seen soundbars for quite some time on amazon and wondered if it would really be worth purchasing since i have a relatively decent tv but i finally decided to give it a try. I have a large tv in the living room that is where my kids like to watch their tv shows. I’m not the most technically inclined so i did struggle a little to try to get this hooked up with all the plugs in the right place but eventually, i got it working. As it turns out, the sound quality is quite noticeably better. The whole room gets the sound perfectly. I really enjoy watching tv shows with my kids.
It has drawbacks which i will mention however for the price, its hard to recommend anything more high end. This product proves that brands don’t matter. Most people will think of sony or panasonic when buying a sound bar. However, this bad boy has great features, fantastic sound and it’s very cost effective. Pros:it’s super easy to set up. All i needed to do in my particular case is plug it in, power it on, plug the sp-dif cable in to my tv and to the speaker then i’m ready to go. It comes with an rca and an optical cable straight out of the box. Fair enough the cables aren’t the most amazing quality however for the time being, they will be just fine.
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 :).
The megacra sound bar was really easy to install. Sound is positively amazing. I have no end of praise for this item. Just got in touch with customer service a year later as i had some building work done and unfortunately we don’t know where the remote went. I explained the situation and they have supplied a new one with no charges. Their customer service is second to none. I highly recommend megacra and its staff very highly.
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.
- 28″ Well made and presented – Sound is poor.
- Very Nice quality Sound Bar for a Great Price
- Soundbar fine. But misled.
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.
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.
Ramps up really loud and adds presence to listening via small tv speakers, however, it can sound a bit boxy – especially at lower volumes, so its not going to win any audiophile listening room prizes unless they are prepared to accept its low price as a feature – in which case it might do. . Some big modern (expensive) tvs can’t be bettered by it and they could only be improved with a proper surround sound set up. However, if you have a tinny listening pleasure at the moment – this could help.
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.
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.

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.
I bought the speaker for ~66 pounds in november 2018. I have always been very skeptical towards new speakers or sound system as i want the most out of each category of speakers. I know that a sound bar can’t hold up with a high quality surround system, but if you get a soundbar, it most of the time because there are no other options. In that case i’m always hoping to get the most out of what you buy. This sound bar delivers a lot for the price and is basically plug and play. It comes with everything you need to connect it right away, the power adaptor and even sound cables, including an optical cable. Movie experience (via optical cable connected samsung tv and mostly netflix content): * clear audio * great bass sound * the emulated surround sound is pretty good * wide volume rangebluetooth: * connecting a device (i. Phone) works super easy * good sound * rich bass soundas with anything, there are some little drawbacks: – bluetooth: the connection beeps are relatively loud, even when the volume of the speaker is down – bluetooth: changing the volume via the phone sometimes makes the volume jump around a little bit, may be it’s just the phone – no auto suspend, if you don’t turn the speaker manually off, it will be on all the timeif can definetly suggest this speaker to anyone who is looking for a good and cheap alternative to a full surround system.
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.
Does not work from red and white phono on back of tv to red and white phono on soundbar. Beware if you have no optical, headphone jack, or bluetooth on your tv. Ignore the questions section above which says phono to phono does work. It doesntworked great via bluetooth from smartphone, the sound is great, but no use to me when it won’t connect to my tv.
There are many sound bars of varying quality and buying one is a gamble. This one lives up to its reviews. It is versatile with optical, phono, bluetooth and usb inputs. The remote learns the tv remote codes which, apart from switching from one input to another, obviates the need for its use. Quality of sound is rich and clear with a choice if several presets. Bass is balanced but not overwhelming, which is what i wanted for the room where the tv is located. Installation without extra fittings is easy and uncomplicated. Given the price, this is a very good buy.
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.

Well built looks good sounds good, good price. . I would like metal grills over the speakers to protect the speakers.
Review for the 38′ model:the product is pretty nice, it’s made the built in back facing speakers in my tv no longer an issue, i can actually hear things nice and crisp, and that bass. There are things from tv show intros and movies etc that i never noticed before until now having powerful and clear sound. It comes with all you need to attach it to a wall etc, the inclusion of the digital cable was great and was of fair enough length to allow a range of placement options. My only ‘issues’ thus far: the bright white led on the front denoting the bar is powered on is highly distracting, turning the bar off is fine. Until you turn it on again, at which point the last settings you had it on?. Say goodbye to those, as it will now blast out at incredibly loud volume, meaning you have to be ready to hold that volume down button quickly or risk everyone, everywhere hearing what you’re watching, whilst you slowly bleed from the ears. It would be nice if there were some way to ‘see’ the settings you’re using, balances and such, but alas you just have to. Fiddle with controls as best you can to get the sound you want, which of course in this day and age of every program and advert deciding their volume and sound design has to be special and unique. Can be a bit of a nuisance at times.
Bought the 32′ after hours of deliberating as to which soundbar to get. Reviews were mixed, some very confusing so took a big risk on this one. Im very fussy with the sound quality and the sound quality on the lg tv i bought had poor quality sound so forced to buy this. When received it was a matter of assembling everything together. Connects better via the enclosed optical cable. Have only tried via this method. Having the bluetooth option adds a great enhancement too. The remote is very easy to use also and once connected properly i was very impressed with the sound as it has a good mix of bass and treble on the soundbar controlled very easily via the remote. Overall a very good piece of kit with good sound quality.
First thing to say is this is being sold as having a coaxial input, it’s stated in the product details and shown in the photos provided by the seller. It doesn’t, at least the one i received didn’t. The seller failed to reply to my emails. The sound quality is just ok with a decent amount of bass and the best thing about it is the remote which gives you a small amount of adjustment to the the levels of bass and treble along with 3 preset modes. Update: the seller eventually got in touch and after agreeing that the info given was out of date we agreed that they would compensate me for the inconvenience. Now happy to recommend them as a seller but they do need to answer emails.
I really wanted this to be rubbish, i had a ‘megacra. P’ review already in my head to berate this soundbar, but it’s really useful. Got it to replace some old and defunct stereo speakers i had set-up ony pc and it’s great. Bluetooth function works nicely for streaming the radio from my phone and the setup was super easy. Is it as good as more expensive soundbars?. Probably not, but at this price it’s hard to think of a better audio option. Subnote: i’ve not dared whack it up to full volume yet because it’s terrifyingly loud in my small room. Might check back with my test results later but don’t be surprised if you see me reviewing hearing aides next month.
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.
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 have both the 60 watt (this soundbar) and the 80 watt one. I’ve got the review wrong for the 80 watt soundbar which i mistook for the 60 watt. I stated that the soundbar had a post for a subwoofer, the 80 watt soundbar doesn’t. Back to this one and it has a rich deep bass with a nice crisp treble, both of which can be adjusted via the remote. Easy to hang in wall following the template supplied. I’d recommend this to anyone who wants nice surround sound for a very reasonable price. The more powerful 80 watt soundbar is also real easy listening on the ears.
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.
I purchased this because i needed a speaker to help for my fading in quality tv speaker. I use this now with an optical audio cable on my tv and keep the tv sound at zero. This also works great because of bluetooth as an external speaker in my bedroom as well，the quality of the sound is very good, there is no extra noise。.
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.
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.
Have no complaints regarding sound quality and ease of use. Unfortunately since it was delivered on october 24 it has turned off on its own three times and it can’t be turned on again using the remote control. Only way round this issue is to remove the power supply dc jack and plug back it again. Mail to seller and am awaiting their reply. Since submitting my feedback i was contacted by the seller who provided a link and instructions to carry out an update to the soundbar. Did as instructed by the seller. Hopefully this will resolve the issue.
Bought this for my other half to use with his pc monitor. He loves games but doesn’t always play with his headphones on and he always complains about the quality of his in-built speakers. Since having these though he’s been made up and stopped complaining about the poor sound, which means i no longer get headaches or have to listen to him drivel on about stuff i don’t really care about. I’ve used the sound bar myself as well for music, as i usually dry and straighten my hair in the same room. The quality is really good and doesn’t break up at louder volumes, so i can sing ‘man, i feel like a woman’ at the top of my lungs to kick start my day. Definitely worth the investment. Shame the price dropped after i bought them though but still good value.
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.
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.
First of all, the 5* ratings given are for the seller and ease of installation. But the soundbar itself only rates between 3* & 4* for sound quality and remote controllability. I bought the 40′ model which is just a little too long/wide for where i need it, but i have managed to squeeze it in albeit that i have to pull it out of its recess to access the side/end control buttons. But that is what the remote is fori have two critiques about this soundbar. 1) it sometimes freezes and i have to switch the power off at the plug for a few seconds to unlock it so i can operate it with the remote again. Access to my plug socket is easy, so while this is annoying it is no hardship. But if your sockets are behind a a/v unit of some kind, you might want to consider this when buying. 2) the tone (base & treble) ‘reset’ button on the remote does not seem to do anything. Except switch off the soundbar and freeze its and the remote’s controls when i have tried experimenting with it, which results in having to switch the power off and back onthat said, the sound quality for what is a essentially a localised sound source is surprisingly good.
So far so good, very good price, oh and it’s not 40′, it’s 38′. Update: have been using the soundbar awhile now, working really well. Especially like the presets (movies, dialog and music) which really enhance the viewing. This is a pretty substantial piece of kit, well made.
Easy to set up and install, the sound quality is very good and delivers a great deal of bass if you need it. Using this with my samsung 40inch smart tv, although the picture quality was very good the speakers were a little underwhelming and this has been the perfect solution. For the price and features, you simply cannot go wrong with this.
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.
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.
Wired and Wireless Connections: Connect with Optical, RCA inputs(cable included) or Pair via Bluetooth for seamless streaming from various devices.
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.
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.
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.
1 blue ray theatre system gave up playing discs suddenly, and needed a replacement, but with arthritis, getting down to change 5 speakers and wires now is a job to far. I dont know this make, but we decided to go for a mid range new blue ray player, and get this soundbar. As we have another sound system to use for the tv/ps3/nowtv box, i had to buy the rca -hdmi audio converter to get the sound out. It was quite easy, just another adaptor and another remote, i could do without really. . This has various functions and bass / treble controls, and so far very pleased with this product which sits in front of tv unit. Ok i miss some of the surround features of a 5. 1 systems are expensive for a decent set up, this is a satisfactory compromise.
Excellent product for the price. It was dispatched and arrived within 3 days. Really feels solid and well made. It is really simple to set up. It does what is says on the tin. The sound from my panasonic flat screen tv was good for regular tv shows, documentaries and the news but really poor for movies especially when using netflix or other streaming services. The megacra sound bar has solved this problem. The sound quality is very good for the price £76. The 38 has three sound options, movie, music and dialogue. This is perfect for my living room. I live in a modern apartment building with an open plan living area, now i can hear all of the dialogue when watching a movie and i also get a real cinema quality sound when watching action movies.
I bought the soundbar for my elderly parents, who need the extra volume but found that listening to the television at that level distorted the sound too much. The sound bar was quick and easy to install. I was immediately impressed by the number of accessories included, allowing you to connect the device via phono plugs, headphone jack, optical or bluetooth connections. The sound quality was excellent, and my parents were over the moon. However one very small but annoying problem was noticed after about 4 months. The old toshiba television remote control could interfere with the soundbar’s settings. I emailed megacra through their support website and got a reply the same day. I explained the problem and asked if there was anything i could do. Without any argument they sent me a new remote control and emailed me a software update for the sound bar. I followed the simple instructions that they gave me and within 2 minutes the problem was solved.
A good bit of kit, lots of inputs so we have alexa, the cd/dvd player and the tv all hooked up. Which leads to the lost star. The volume balance between the various inputs is not good. Cds come out very loud via the rca sockets for balance, when changing sources, alexa has to be at full volume via bluetooth. Still, at the price, it offers great value for money.
