Roth Audio Sub Zero II TV Soundbar – Looks good, sounds great, easy to use!

There is a good deal to like about the roth sub zero ii. It is substantially built and generates wonderful sound. A couple of decades back i would hardly ever have imagined about a soundbar for seem improvement on my tv, contemplating them far more of a gimmick. Now i wouldn’t be without them. I say them, as the initially a person i purchased was the samsung hw-f350, (no bluetooth) and the next was the hw-f355, (with bluetooth). Equally of these were being for my samsung tv’s and they are outstanding. When i determined to get a single for my 37′ panasonic in the bedroom, i went for the roth, primarily simply because the trustworthy critique website gave it 8/ten, furthermore there were being numerous very favourable amazon assessments. I also did not want a subwoofer. I have now mounted it on a pretty slender shelf, about 15 inches previously mentioned the tv.

Excellent selling price & great seem for the rate. So considerably much better than regular tv speakers. The only rationale i gave it four stars is that the blue quantity lights are incredibly really hard to see. (while no doubt if they have been also vivid that could also be an issue. And the distant is junk and only is effective if you are trained sniper and a have exceptional aiming arm. Nevertheless luckily if you have great good phone with an ir sensor on it. (galaxy s6 performs) you can use the peel intelligent remote application. Regrettably roth isn’t outlined but i identified that the toshiba options give the finest final results and i no more time have to have the fairly lousy provided distant.

This has truly increased the clearness of the tv has voice, new music and film manner. My son and mom have now the two received just one.

  • Quality sound bar revives flagging flat screen sound.
  • Superb Soundbar!
  • A great improvement and very affordable.
  • Great sound bar for the price.
  • Very good overall, can recommend to all but there are some things to consider
  • A couple of niggles, otherwise great.

Sorts out the mumblers on the bbc. Uncomplicated to established up, discreet and rather loud adequate. Best matter about this is that it has 3 buttons on the distant – ‘music’, ‘movie’ and ‘voice’. I have it established by default on ‘music’, which is all you need to have, ninety% of the time. If, nonetheless, you want to make sense of a thing like ‘jamaica inn’, flip to ‘voice’ and almost everything will become considerably much more apparent. It assists on mumbly us imports much too, but fails with billie piper on ‘penny dreadful’ – but then only subtitles can make any feeling of her attempt at an irish accent. When a huge blockbuster like ‘transformers’ or ‘die hard’ comes on, flip it to ‘movie’ and enjoy the rumbly explosions and screechy tyres in all their glory.

I purchased a 47′ tv and the sound of the tv was a mockery to the size and high-quality of the images. I desired a speaker with oomph on a funds. I go through a handful of tech opinions and the roth sub ii was hugely proposed. I made the decision to invest in via amazon. I was astonished when the speaker was shipped in 3days of buy. I in the beginning related it to the tv with the rca jack incorporated and the creation was not fantastic. Nonetheless when i procured an optical cable and applied it for my relationship, the seem blew me absent.

Was expecting so considerably more right after owning the initial sub zero. This offers you with a improved shaped bar, nicer shape, sleeker, overall better seeking, the attributes are excellent in excess of the first much too but this is where by it allows you down, audio top quality. I ran them aspect by facet sub zero against sub zero ii and although the attributes on the ii are far better the initial blew the new just one absent for audio top quality. Not an audio up grade just a complex update.

Fantastic advancement on tv’s speaker, bluetooth link can be hit and skip, will need resetting to bluetooth product commonly, need to confess it is a bit large for most tv’s units, but it can be wall mounted if you have the place. No the audio copy of a bose technique but it is a portion of the charge. Would i purchase all over again sure, would i be with no no, would i propose yes .

One thought on “Roth Audio Sub Zero II TV Soundbar – Looks good, sounds great, easy to use!

  1. Great price & great sound for the price. So much better than standard tv speakers. The only reason i gave it 4 stars is that the blue volume lights are very hard to see. (though no doubt if they were too bright that could also be an issue. And the remote is junk and only works if you are trained sniper and a have superior aiming arm. However luckily if you have good smart phone with an ir sensor on it. (galaxy s6 works) you can use the peel smart remote app. Unfortunately roth isn’t listed but i found that the toshiba settings give the best results and i no longer need the rather poor supplied remote.

    Very good sound quality for such a cheap soundbar. Very good sound quality for such a cheap soundbar. The sound was a little too bassy when hooked up via the stereo jack, but sounds much better with an optical cable (and the correct audio settings on my tv). Very happy with my purchase, would recommend.
    • Not the improvement i was hoping for when watching tv. I bought this hoping to be able to hear the dialogue better when watching my favourite dramas but it hasn’t really helped. Sound is out of sync when connected via optical cable to sky box, and there is an echo on it (using voice option). I had to buy an optical cable seperately, the 3. 5 mm stereo cable wasn’t included in the box either and it may be that the sound will be better if i buy one of these and connect it to the tv. Shouldn’t really have to go buying cables though.

    Rather disappointing – intermittent connection problems and very frustrating remote, that hardly ever seems to work – even with good quality batteries.
    • The sound is great and with the added bluetooth functionality this is perfect for playing music without any hassle. The only drawback was that it didn’t have a hdmi connection so the sound is carried through an optical cable to my television. This enables sound every output to be played through the soundbar. Highly recommended if someone is looking to change from a full sound system.
      • There is a lot to like about the roth sub zero ii. It is substantially made and produces great sound. A couple of years ago i would never have thought about a soundbar for sound enhancement on my tv, thinking them more of a gimmick. Now i wouldn’t be without them. I say them, as the first one i purchased was the samsung hw-f350, (no bluetooth) and the second was the hw-f355, (with bluetooth). Both of these were for my samsung tv’s and they are excellent.

I also did not need a subwoofer. I have now mounted it on a very narrow shelf, about 15 inches above the tv.
  4. Very dissatisfied with sound its a complete waste of money i since replaced it with a lg. I brought this sound bar to go with hitachi flat screen tv. Very dissatisfied with sound its a complete waste of money i since replaced it with a lg sound bar which is great the roth sits on top of the wardrobe collecting dust.

    I made note of the comments reference the voice quality being poor but ordered anyway. Having had experience of the cheaper end of this market giving poor overall sound quality i thought the comments referring to the general good quality especially on movie setting on this soundbar was worth trying. Now to the nitty gritty the voice transmission on this unit is not good, on voice setting it is no better than the tv, music setting is no better, the movie setting is some improvement (in voice) but the overall sound quality in “movie” is superb. My “cure”, and its solved the voice concerns of other comments on this board is to have two aural feeds, the voice from the tv, under sound settings remove all bass and push up the treble leaving you with high pitched voices and little else. Next connect the soundbar to either an optical or line out from the tv (not headphone it cuts off the tv speaker) set the soundbar to “movie” and adjust the volume of the soundbar to the required level then increase the tv sound until the voice on the soundbar is just overcome so the tv high pitched voice is augmenting the overall sound. Do that and you’ve got a great setup.
    • Looks good, sounds great, easy to use. I bought this recently for my home tv and for a speaker for music in my living room. It’s simple, easy to setup, looks good and easy to use. My only grumble would be the volume as i expected it to go louder (considering their tag line is ‘turn it up’). However, for watching movies etc, its great.
      • Good piece of kit previous sound bar was tinny this roth has bass and clarity easy to install only downside is the status led’s are very hard to see in daylight otherwise great sound.

    I have it connected to a 32 inch panasonic tv and it makes the sound much better than the speakers in the tv. I have attached it to the wall just below the tv so it looks good as well. It does not have a separate sub woofer but the sound seems good to me with excellent base output. My only quibble is that the indicator lights on the front are very dim and almost impossible to see so you basically have to adjust the volume and input selection blind. I have connected it to the headphone out put of the tv and then can use the tv remote to adjust the volume. This means that i have only had to set the soundbar volume once on initial setup so the very dim lights were not a great problem.

    The sound is really improved, very easy to set up and with everything(wires) you need. Has a light on the speaker to signify where you are. It plugs directly into your tv, so no need to separately wire to set top box and blu-ray. When you change from set top box to dvd the sound automatically changes. Two things we don’t like, the remote has to be pointed directly into the speaker, it doesn’t do oblique and we now have a crackle sometimes when we the tivo box remote for changing channel and other things.
