What Alternatives are there to Soundbars?


Dynaudio Xeo 2 


Modern TV's sound really bad...

Modern TV's sound pretty horrible... So we get a lot of people asking whether soundbars are worth it.


Generally, soundbars improve on the sound from your TV, but you will get a nicer, better sound and longer lasting system with a compact and simple active stereo system.


Most soundbars aren't that much better

The problem with soundbars is their shape. The long thin size means they must use tiny, average quality drivers in a horrible acoustic environment. For the money spent, they simply don't sound that good.


Modern Active stereo speakers can be just as easy to use, sound much nicer and last a lot longer than soundbars. They can also look very discrete and even be wall mounted.


Using a left and right pair means you actually get sound that is accurate to how it was originally recorded and doesn't sound like it coming out of a tiny, plastic box...
