TaoTronics Sound Bar 34-Inch 40 Watt 2, economical soundbar

I found that an audio digital cable worked best (but you have to mute the sound on the. Setting it up was a bit of a palaver, the cable in the box didn’t fit any sockets on the back of the (new) samsung tv. I needed to go to the local supersheds to get a couple of cables to try which kind of defeated the object of internet shopping. I found that an audio digital cable worked best (but you have to mute the sound on the tv manually). You’d think that for the sake of a couple of quid they would put one in the boxand it was a bit fiddly getting the hang of the remote control. It has to be aimed directly at the sensor on the bar and the leds indicating the volume on the sound bar are a bit hard to interpret. Having said that the sound quality and volume from the sound bar is good and a great improvement on the tvs built in speakers though i haven’t heard other sound bars to compare it to. And the price seemed very competitive compared to other sound bars i have seen so i might get another one for the bedroom tv.

Works well only issue is that it does not hold volume level when turned off.

Much, much better than new smart samsung tv sound, which is exactly what i bought it for. No fine tuning of bass or treble and it has to be re-linked to bluetooth every time its switched on. Remote control won’t work if more than 2 metres away, which is annoying (tried new batteries) but overall its the sound that counts.

Comments from buyers

“Well designed full featured product, pity ours is faulty, Great sound, but, I found that an Audio Digital cable worked best (but you have to mute the sound on the “

Needed to get sound bar (tv is awful without) as my original one failed. I connected via optical cable to tv – when i switch on tv the sound is mute until the sound bar is switched on. My tv switches off automatically by use of a gadget that takes it off standby. I suppose the optical cable sends a switch off message to the sound bar – my original soundbar never did that so i am perplexed. My old soundbar was not bluetooth but even as i am not techy i do not think that has anything to do with it. Anyway it was not terribly expensive so i shall live with its frustrating niggle.

Listening to music using it at the moment.

Would be improved with a more effective base sound happy as it does what is expected for our small tv.

Works really well and sounds great. I use it rigged up via optical to my ps4, bluetooth to my phone and/or echodot and aux in from my projector. The little remote works great and the sound from all inputs is excellent. 1 dts (or it seems to at least) via the optical input from my ps4.

Wanted to improved tv sound without upsetting terraced neighbours. This was ideal as it doesn’t have a big thumping bass.

And not the auxiliary ones supplied for an analogue tv i now have it working and am very pleased with it. Arrived quickly but the hand book is limited for people who are not technically minded as i did not realize it would need an optic cable,and not the auxiliary ones supplied for an analogue tv i now have it working and am very pleased with it.

Well designed full featured product, pity ours is faulty. A really great sound bar rides to the rescue when. . Well the sound on our old faithful luxor tv was never very special and we had not decent sound system for music either. Then the sound out of the tv dies completely but fortunately we still got an output from the aux socket but not from the digital outputs. A quick search on amazon revealed this product as a potential solution to our problems with optical, digital aux coax and bluetooth inputs this is a sound bar for all seasons as it were with its touch panel controls and its remote control. I am very please with this product it sounds pretty good with the aux output from the tv and great as a bluetooth speaker for my phone. 99 this is not by any means the cheapest sound bar you can get but it does seem to be very good and to have a good feature set well documented on the product page, including by the way keyhole slots for mounting it on the wall. Initially we had trouble with the remote because although it worked you seemed to need to be close and the volume controls did not work. However afgter fitting a better battery it was fine so be aware this remote does need a fully charged good quality battery.

This improves the sound quality of modern tvs by a vast amount. Fitting is very simple, one small criticism, the remote controller for volume, on/off etc is very directional. At first i thought this useful accessory was not working until i discovered the way to use it: with great care. Overall it is a valuable addition to any smart tv providing good sound quality at a reasonable volume.

Didn’t want to spend hundreds on a sound bar so bought this because of the 5 star reviews. Was up and running within 5 minutes of receiving the product. I’d already bought an optical cable so it was just a case of plugging in the mains and the optical. The speech is definately clearer. I have an xbox as well and was initially concerned that i may have to keep moving the optical cable around but that was’nt the case. It works both on the tv and xbox automatically. For the price i’m very happy with the product and would recommend.
