Best Sound Bar 2014

Best Sound Bar 2014
By

Most home-theater setups include a TV, cable box, DVD or Blu-ray player, and maybe a gaming console — and more and more people are adding a digital set-top box like the Roku or Apple TV. But your big flat screen can only produce so much sound. Sound bars are a worthy upgrade from your TV's audio, without the clutter of a traditional speaker set. Most sound bars come with wireless subwoofers to handle deep bass, and some (referred to as sound plates, stands or bases) sit under your TV instead of in front of its base. Here are our top soundbar recommendations with the right features and connections for your needs and budget.

    Gotta tell ya, it's spendy but incredible sound. Both 'musically' and for theater/surround reflection. The B&W Panorama2 improved on the original significantly. HDMI inputs, including a forth 'bi-directional' HDMI connector so your tv can be rerouted through the soundbar itself. Sub out and you're set in a medium, even large living room. While the Bose is an excellent bar, the Pano is a MONSTER in comparison..IMHO, and as always your mileage may vary;)
