GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY

allen j scott, Amazon
4 January 2014
  • Summary: Some people will say you only get what you pay for, well not in this case this is superb value for money, its slim compact, looks great, and sounds great, my television did not have the best sound in the world but this has improved it greatly, its worth noting however it is not compatable with all tvs, mine would not work with the hdmi lead, which by the way is supplied in the box, so dont buy one, but the instructions give you several ways of connecting it and it worked...

Does the job for a reasonable price

RICHARD "championhurdler", Amazon
17 November 2013
  • Summary: 4 stars because you need an arc hdmi port on your TV for best setup. Still using the microhone/headpone port on your TV gives the sound a serious boost. So quickly look for the arc port and if it's not there don't waste you time put it in the other one usually in the front or side of TV. Don't need wires everywhere and you can't fault the value.

Great sound bar

Andrew Thomas, Amazon
31 August 2013
  • Summary: The sound bar is great but he set up is a problem for my tv, I do not have a hdmi arc so its done through the audio out put. I can't find out how to reduce the volume so now using the headphone socket but the quality is lower. It's a sharp tv its linked to but need a person who knows what they are doing.

Sharp 2:1 Sound Bar with Active Sub Woofer Digital Amplifier System

David C. Lamb "DCL", Amazon
6 July 2013
  • Summary: Excellent sound quality especially given the small size of the bar. Flexible connecting options. HDMI with audio return channel (ARC) or as in my case connected to headphone socket. It's bigger brother, designed for big screen TV's benefits from wireless connection of the subwoofer, a variety of sound options and a remote control. This less expensive model has a wired subwoofer connection, no sound options (except those offered by the TV) and no remote.

Great Value... If it works!

O. Tristram "Ollie Tristram", Amazon
16 April 2013
  • Summary: ***UPDATE*** Everything was going fine (see below) until I tried to play a game on my PS3. This resulted in a horrible static sound out the speakers. The solution was to disable the HDMI ARC control (the whole reason I bought them) and use them via the 3.5mm headphone jack cable provided. The audio is still as good, but you lose the auto-on-off feature and I could have purchased some £60 PC Speakers to do the same job.

be aware

raffa, Amazon
11 April 2013
  • Summary: Do not buy this unless your tv has an arc enabled hdmi. No controls on unit at all so need to interface through tv and if you don't have ARC it won't work unless the3.5mm input jack is used. This resulted in poor quality and uncontrollable sound with my samsung.

Nice sound a pain to connect.

C. Jones "Woldsedge", Amazon
28 December 2012
  • Summary: It's a nice discreet system with very good sound, my only irritation is the difficulty connecting via HDMI. In the end I read the review on here by IanL and pulled the damn plug out just leaving it connected via the speaker jack - that did the trick. It does seem a pity that the TV & soundbar has all these wonderfull hi-tech inputs and outputs but in the end you rely on 70's technology jack plug!

Shayan Ghassemi, Amazon
26 December 2012
  • Summary: If u don't like having all the wires of a 5.1 surround, then get this u can hide the one cable under the tv know one will know its even connected to anything, it works off your TV's remote so make sure u have a new TV uses HDMI to send its signal to switch it on and off again be warned

Good sound quality.

Karl Barker, Amazon
26 November 2012
  • Summary: Used with a sony bravia NX803 TV, SKY HD box , Xbox 360 and Wii conected. The sony speakers at the back of the set gave a poor quality of sound, we had to keep constantly turning the TV up when soft spoken scenes came on, only to be blasted by a wall of sound when the adverts came on. tried adjusting the sony settings on sound level but it did not significantly improve the fiddling with sound levels for different programs.
