Why should you buy a soundbar?

It’s a question most people ask themselves when purchasing a TV. To make things a little easier for you, we’ve compiled the top reasons enhance your television experience with a soundbar.

First things first, you’re probably wondering what a soundbar is?

A soundbar is an all-in-one speaker system that delivers high-quality TV sound without requiring the space, complexity and expense of a full home cinema setup. If you’ve bought a tv in the last 10 years or so you probably have a flat screen TV. Flat screen TVs have fantastic visual quality, are brilliant space-savers and look great. However, when it comes to sound quality, they lack the space for their internal speakers to reach their full potential. This is where a soundbar saves the day! A soundbar will give you deep, rich and a wide dynamic sound. Perfect for movies, sports and concerts.

Soundbars sit below your TV and project sound outwards, which gives you the best audio experience possible. Unlike some TV models which can have a limited ‘tinny’ sound. Soundbars are best placed in front of your TV for optimum audio quality and most soundbars will also include a subwoofer. The subwoofer creates a fuller sound, like what you would experience in a cinema. The subwoofer is generally wireless and can be placed anywhere in the room such as beside the TV, under a table or in the corner behind your sofa. To save on space you can also opt for a model which has an internal subwoofer.

Soundbars are for more than just watching boxsets and movies. Most soundbars now have Bluetooth which means you can connect your phone or tablet to the speaker to listen to your favourite music, audiobooks or podcasts!

Be sure to check out our full range of soundbars here or pop into any of our 23 stores and our experienced staff will be happy to answer any of your questions.
