Here are the 5 criteria for choosing a soundbar:
  • Power : 100 Watts for a room of less than 20 m².
    Between 100 and 300 W for medium and large rooms, up to 40 m². They will suit most users.
    Beyond 300 Watts, the sound is powerful and deep. The sound quality is better and allows 360 ° sound spatialization like home theaters. However, their price is more expensive.
  • Bar alone or with a subwoofer : compact sound bars sometimes contain more than 20 speakers but are too small to integrate a subwoofer. This is why we advise you to choose the sound bar only for more upscale models ( minimum 300 euros ) except the Bose solo 5 which benefits from all the know-how of the brand.
  • Audio technology : We give in priority the values indicated for audio technologies related to sound quality. They are not always communicated by the manufacturers , in these cases we specify functions which can be useful to consumers like the Alexa function , which is a voice assistant which will trigger with a simple voice request the desired music. The multi-room will allow you to control your soundbar regardless of the room where you are inside your home.
    Another interesting technology, the one that prevents the sound from distorting when the volume is too high, for example: Hi-Res audio technologywith the samsung HWMS651 bar, which additionally has 9 speakers .

For technologies related to sound quality , we find Dolby Digital sound and its competitor DTS mainly used in cinemas to find the atmosphere of dark rooms. The LG SK5 offers a mid-range sound, more than adequate for an enveloping 360 ° sound. The Sony HT-RT3's S-master amplifier delivers precise and clear sound that will bring out the channels better.

  • The type of connection: be very clear on this and try to determine the number of devices you want to connect to it such as your home console, your TV, an additional amp and check the compatibility of your equipment.
  • Ergonomics: an important criterion, some models offer precise settings for the type of music you want to broadcast ( balance of bass and treble ). Others confine themselves to a single type of sound specific to each brand.

Great choice - I got one for my Gram last Christmas and it’s so nice for her. I'm really impressed with the sound.
