3.0 out of 5 stars Not Blown Away, 3 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: LG NB2520A Speaker Bar System with Integrated SubWoofer (Electronics)
I have to admit, I am not a 'soundbar connoisseur'. But who is? Here's what you need to know:

- Integrated subwoofer (which allows you to save space on those ugly crates that accompany some sets of speakers)

- 3 HDMI ports to simultaneously connect TV, Bluray, PS3 etc.

- Make sure your TV has an ARC HDMI connection that allows export of information from the TV to the soundbar - if it doesn't however there is still a 3.5mm jack connection or an optical audio connection

- The adjustable height feature is a bit of a gimmick, its like standing on a Thomson local

- There are a lot of fancy and stylised sound options: "Natural, Bypass, Bass, Clear Voice, Game, Night, Upscaler, Loudness" of which none felt particularly right - separate bass and treble controls would have sufficed - on this note, the trumpeted "3D Sound" takes a lot of getting used to; analogous to ramping up the high end treble to full.

Here is what you need to do:

If you want to get a neat soundbar for tidiness then your best option may be a wireless one; we are all well versed in the spaghetti junction of the modern day living-room. But if you do not mind the wires this is still a very smart way to jazz up those awful in built TV speakers. There are some fantastic speakers designed to link up to desktops and computers around this price-band. In fact the lines between speakers and 'home-entertainment' systems are so blurred these days your best bet is to pop down to your local retailer and try them all out for yourself; and then if they can't get close to amazon's comptetitive prices come back here and bite the bullet.

Whilst this soundbar is much better than my tv speakers, I cant help but think there may be much better sounding speakers on the market for this price - do your research and don't rush your purchase.
