Soundbar Reviews

Without question, the hottest category in consumer electronics audio is soundbars. Not everyone wants a clunky 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound system for their bedroom or main system. Some people want a solution that is sleek and that fits under their HDTV yet produces a good sound. This is exactly where soundbars come in. Some soundbars are powered and packing DSP - others are passive and require the use of an amplifier or AV receiver. Either way, most are thin and meet the standards set by today's Home Theater system. Below, find one of the largest collections of Soundbar reviews on the Internet.
