Summary: For a budget speaker system, Sharp’s HT-SB200 sound bar performs well. Its small speakers reproduce surprisingly large amounts of mid-bass and it complements the in-built speakers of Sharp’s LCD televisions well.
Pros: Cheap as chips, decent sound quality, simple and unobtrusive styling, versatile remote
Cons: Sound is a bit muddy at low volumes, no subwoofer line out
Summary: Something that has been improving the TV sound for a number of years, this one I saw in the early summer when I requested it and several other items at a Sharp presentation , this is the first of their items to arrive.
Summary: The Sharp HTSB200 is capable of adding a significant amount of oomph to your TV's audio. But you'll have to keep it at a medium volume level or below -- at high volumes, its performance leaves much to be desired
Pros: Small, sleek design, Easy to use, Modest price tag
Cons: No on-board Dolby Digital decoding, Too much treble at high volumes
Conclusion: The Sharp HTSB200 is a decent performer, as long as you don't use it at high volume levels. If you like to listen to action movies at a loud volume or simply have a large room to fill with sound, you'd be better off looking at some of the more expensive soundbars currently on the market.
