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.
Summary: I've had one of these for a few months now and I thought I was taking a bit of a chance - I mean I do like Bose stuff but they do like to make you pay for the privilege of their stuff. What I like about this is that you can control the settings for different genres. You don't need cinema sound for Huw Edwards reading the news and it seems the criticism of the Bose solo TV system is that you cannot control it.
