One of the simplest and best return on investments you can add to your television experience is a soundbar. As flat panel tv’s get thinner and thinner, there just is not the space to have good quality speakers built in. Along with the trend of having a smaller bezel, the options for positioning speakers dwindle. As TV’s get smaller, there sound gets worse.
The soundbar to the rescue!
Today, soundbars offer a multi-purpose solution. Adding a soundbar to your television drastically upgrades the quality of sound and audio field. The difference is so noticeable in some cases, you would think you are in an actual movie theater. Adding to the increase in quality sound, many soundbars also include additional options to stream other audio sources such as music content, podcasts, etc.
The streamlined profile and compact nature make adding a soundbar easy. Many of these systems eliminate the extra wiring and the calibration issues of having multiple speakers. Soundbars are also versatile because they can be hung on a wall with your flat panel TV or placed on a stand in front of the TV.
Adding a single soundbar will never take the place of a dedicated surround sound system, but the advancements in technology have made them an amazing addition to other rooms where you watch TV without the extra work of running multiple speakers or where a full fledged audio system is not needed.
Sometimes simple is better, and there is no simpler solution for adding an extra audio boost to a television like a soundbar. Let’s take a look at three of our recommendations:
PLAYBAR’s nine-speaker soundbar design floods your home with huge waves of epic, full-theater sound for TV, Web, Movies and Video Games. PLAYBAR is also a stand-alone all-in-one Sonos player that allows you to wirelessly stream all your music – from your iTunes library, your favorite music services, and thousands of Internet radio stations, shows and podcasts.
Sonance Soundbars feature an exclusive patent-pending adjustable width design that perfectly matches the dimensions of any 50” to 80” flat screen display. The minimalistic black perforated metal grille provides a seamless aesthetic that complements modern television designs, while the true 3-way speaker configuration and state-of-the-art driver materials deliver best-in-class sonic performance, with clarity, wide sound stage, and extremely natural sound.
While other sound bars offer only stereo audio or a “virtual surround” experience, the MusicCast Sound Bar uses Yamaha exclusive Digital Sound Projector technology to produce sound beams that reflect off the walls of your room to deliver true 5.1-channel surround sound. The result is an expansive and immersive listening experience that brings your favorite TV shows and movies to life. Yamahas amazing MusicCast System is enhanced with this soundbar’s dual built in subwoofers, eight beam drivers, and multiple inputs including HDMI.
