Soundbars

0

A TV-compatible soundbar is a speaker that can turn your living room into a home theatre. Another advantage is that its sleek, slim design takes up very little space. With a subwoofer soundbar, you get incredible bass reproduction for any movie or music track, making it a great addition to your home.

Number of Channels Matters

The classic TV soundbar is installed beneath the TV screen and only transmits audio from the front. With more sophisticated solutions, you can simulate multi-channel (4/5/7.1) speaker sets to create surround sound. If the soundbar contains real rear speakers, spatial localisation almost always ends up being more accurate and precise.

  • 2.0-channel soundbars feature two front channels for classic stereo audio without a subwoofer.
  • 2.1-channel soundbars have two front channels complemented by a subwoofer.
  • 3.0-channel soundbars hold two front channels, a subwoofer, and a centre channel for dialogue.
  • 5.1-channel soundbars include three front channels expanded with two rear channels and a subwoofer for better surround sound.
  • 7.1-channel soundbars offer a total of 7 channels, 4 of which are special surround channels, located at the front and back in two pairs. The remaining 3 channels are standard fare - 1 at the front and the last 2 at the back.

A soundbar with rear channels and a subwoofer gives you a full Dolby Digital and DTS home cinema experience. Rear channels can be created by physical speakers, or the soundbar can virtualise them using dedicated drivers.

Booming Bass for Your Living Room 

A subwoofer is a special type of speaker that produces low frequency sound, commonly known as bass, that really enriches your audio experience. The subwoofer is often combined with a soundbar, and comes in two forms:

  1. A soundbar with a built-in subwoofer is an elegant and compact solution, but its volume and bass output aren’t quite up to par.
  2. A stand-alone active subwoofer is used by the higher-quality soundbars, creating deep, powerful bass.

Creating strong and deep bass means the subwoofer must move a relatively large amount of air. If you want a soundbar with strong bass performance, choose a subwoofer with the largest diaphragm possible and a big enclosure (the bigger the better).

How to Choose a Soundbar

Modern soundbars include many different technologies, inputs, and outputs, so it’s good to take some time to understand what they really offer. Remember that the best soundbar is one that fits all your requirements.

If you are looking for a soundbar for your PC, you should check out our Computer Speakers section. However, soundbars are often not recommended for PC because the devices being so close together means you won’t get good surround sound.

Soundbars and Smart Technology

You can listen to music in several ways, including:

  • Soundbars with WiFi/LAN play content from the Internet (YouTube, Spotify, etc.) or from your data storage, e.g. NAS.
  • Soundbars with Bluetooth let you play content directly from mobile phones, laptops, and tablets.
  • Soundbars with radio allow you to listen to your favourite radio stations without the need for a separate radio device.
  • AirPlay is Apple's technology to make it easier to connect your iPhone or iPad to a soundbar.
  • Google Chromecast is essentially a mini PC for wireless media sharing on your TV.
  • NFC delivers lightning fast connectivity simply by placing your device on the soundbar.

Soundbar Inputs and Outputs

Every soundbar contains many inputs and outputs for connecting your audio devices and TV. Make sure to check if your TV shares at least some of the inputs and outputs with your selected soundbar. The most common types are:

  • USB output, which is used to play media from external and flash drives.
  • Cinch input performs the same function as 3.5mm line input and can be converted to the 3.5mm interface.
  • 3.5mm line input (AUX, line-in) is a wired connection to any audio source, e.g. a phone.
  • Headphone output (3.5mm Jack) allows you to connect headphones to the speaker body and then listen to music.
  • Optical output acts as a substitute option for audio transmission from TV, unless it has an HDMI port with ARC.
  • HDMI (with ARC) is used for digital transmission of audio and video content. The audio return channel (ARC) allows two-way connection to the TV with just one cable.

Budget soundbars generally don’t support content streamed from the Internet. If Internet media content is a priority for you, we recommend investing in a more expensive soundbar.

Discover the many soundbars made by the most renowned brands in the industry: Samsung, LG, Philips, SONY, JBL, Yamaha, and BOSE.
