A question I hear several times a week is 'I have just bought this new tv and the sound is awful. I can't make out the words at any volume, what do I do?'
As tvs get slimmer and cheaper the sound becomes worse and worse.
Many are appalling, worse than your tube television from 10-15 years ago!
Soundbars are now everywhere, and most of them are also pretty poor!
Here are two solutions that sound great, and are great value for money
BRILLIANT PIECE OF KIT! A bar with digital input and a wireless connection to play music through it
Your tv's remote controls the playbar volume in tv mode and you can use an iphone/ipad/android to select music
£599? No brainer, call in for a demonstration.
KEF V Series
Kef have also turned their engineers to this problem and now have great solutions for you:
Starting with their award winning super-flat T series Kef have engineered 2 layouts of speaker with amplifiers
The V300 uses 2 flat speakers and an amplifier which is so slim it can sit behind your tv on the wall or under it in your rack
While it's usually hidden it is shown in this picture to emphasize just how tiny it is. The speakers are less than 1.5" deep, the amp module is less than 1"!
Set-up and control couldnt be simpler, and here's a diagram to prove it!
£ 699 covers the speakers and amplifier and you can boost the performance after by adding any Kef subwoofer
The other 2 versions use the same slim speakers in one bar layout to go above or below your tv
In this case the amplifier is all built-in, but you can buy it like this for £ 599 or in a package including subwoofer for £ 799
