    Love to get some opinions on this 2... mainly music or films on the TV - just wondering whether a soundbar would be up for the job or if i need to spend a little more on something else

    we've just bought a new samsung TV and we went for a 310 watt sound bar with it too. we were playing with the different options in currys and the sound from them is quite impressive! we watch alot of films and stuff and it really does make it alot better and more enjoyable. you'll be wondering why you've been without better speakers for so long!

    as the TV's get thinner nowadays, the speakers/sound quality doesnt improve... :?

    Just bought the JBL SB400 which is by far and above the best sound bar for under £500.
    Richer sounds have it on offer @ £250 so well worth a buy. Loads of connectivity and the sound is truly unparalleled!!

    I would second the JBL SB400...this has been given excellent reviews and would be my first choice as well,especially at this price.
    Alas...the layout of our livingroom makes it difficult to place the subwoofer in a discreet place , so tomorrow it's off to Richer Sounds to purchase the Yamaha YAS 101 soundbar which also has good reviews and is priced at £149.

    I have a Samsung Smart TV mounted on the bedroom wall and it's also lacking in the sound department. I was thinking of getting a wireless samsung soundbar to mount on the bed headboard. Can soundbars be placed behind the viewer?

    Also do you need to have a subwoofer for them? I have seen refurbished ones on eBay cheap but without the subwoofer.

    You don't need to have a sub. ( but I would deffo get one as the bars themselves tend to lack in the bass department.) they are great for mid and highs but not so much of the lows.
    And yes it can be mounted behind should be too much of an issue.

    I've been looking at the Sonos playbar as I already have a Sonos speaker for streaming music and it's great.

    The beauty about the Sonos is you can expand the system with more speakers and a sub woofer.

    I have the sonos soundbar....masivly impressive (even without the sub) and as mention to way you expand your system is awesome....albeit a little expensive.

    Saving up just now to get the Sonos sub and 2 no play 1's for the rear speakers.
