Summary: It's been 3 months since I have purchased this sound bar & things have gotten worse, the sound goes out or either gets so distorted you can't hear anything. No need to worry though, I have purchased another sound bar by Coby, let's see how this one works out. Dropped my intial rating of 4 stars to 3, I feel the inevitable time is coming were the sound will be gone for good.
Summary: This Sharp HT-SB 250 Sound Bar is definitely better sounding than the speakers from my Sony Bravia KDL-37EX503 TV but only if the Subwoofer level is turned right down to the minus 5 level and the bass is set at zero. If you set both the Subwoofer and Bass levels to the '0' position then to my ears the Sharp Sound Bar produces a very nasty distorted bass sound. Of course this unit does not produce surround sound but merely makes voices a bit clearer.
Summary: It opened up tv for me as I am profoundly deaf at last I can tune the sound to suit me. It is easy to set up and looks good sat in the front of my TV set. The programs on TV now seem to be recorded at a whisper But now I can hear with ease.
Summary: Fitted this for a customer of mine and delighted with the result. Very good price and delivery. Ideal for analogue sound from earlier LCD's for the older person that requires clarity rather than a cinema experience.
Summary: Night and day difference from tinny telly sound to cinema quality. Fits well with my Sony Bravia and has a good mount system so can be dicreetly tucked under wall mounted TV. As good as the £300-£500 ones.
Excerpt: Last year my much loved CRT TV gave up the ghost and we invested in a Sony HD flat screen TV. Great TV in a lot of ways but one major flaw was the sound in my opinion was atrocious and sounded really tinny. I complained to Sony and got nowhere , So I read around various reviews and came to the conclusion that I could either return the TV or buy some speakers. I opted for the speaker option and having browsed around came across the Sharp sound bar.
