Vizio SB2920 29" Soundbar 2.0 system
For less than $100, the Vizio SB2920 is the soundbar to get. While on the small side, the 28.75 x 3 x 3-inch unit doesn't sound diminutive. It gets loud enough for a large room, features plenty of ways to connect and performs well on a variety of types of sound. It has solid bass performance and clear, resonant vocals. It's also built solidly. People won't believe you spent so little on it.
Megacra YoungBar 7020
The 28 x 3.2 x 2.9-inch YoungBar 7020 is a relatively small soundbar, but that doesn't stop it from producing a large, room-filling sound. For the money, few soundbars can create richer bass than YoungBar 7020. That low end helps make the dialog easier to hear. This soundbar delivers tinny treble, however, which makes it weak for music listening.
If you want better sound, but don't have a good place to put a soundbar, a soundbase — which goes under your TV stand — could be the solution. Pyle's 20.6 x 12 x 3-inch PSBV600BT uses its depth to include a woofer, which results in big, booming bass. It also has enough power to fill a large room with sound. The bass can overwhelm the treble and midrange, though, and dialog and vocals can get lost in the mix.
With its metal, touch-sensitive pad, the TT-SK15 looks like it should cost more than it does, but the sound doesn't match the style. This soundbar makes dialog easy to hear, but the wimpy bass and tinny treble leave much to be desired. It doesn't feature any sound modes or ways to adjust the sound, either, things that several other soundbars in the same price range do offer.
Avantree Torpedo Plus
The 10.8 x 2.4 x 2-inch Torpedo Plus looks sharp and has something other cheap soundbars don't: a 5.5-hour battery, which makes it easy to take it anywhere you want to watch TV. It features clear dialog, but lacks any bass to speak of. The crisp treble tones help provide details in music and movie soundtracks, but the soundbar suffered from interference when connected via Bluetooth. It also lacks a remote.
Insignia mini 2.0 soundbar NS-SB216
The tiny 12.6 x 2.7 x 1.8-inch Insignia mini soundbar meets the minimum criteria for a soundbar: It makes dialog easier to hear when you're watching TV and movies. While it gives voices some resonance, the lack of treble means it can sound muddy, especially during action scenes. Because of its small size, it's a better fit for small TVs or computer screens.
Just be awared soundbars are task-specific, does one thing, and not scalable, meaning rarely a way to plug in more stuff in the future, that's why they are, relatively, cheap, and please pretty please buy a SB that has the same type of connector as your TV. Many people buy these things without even knowing it will hook up to their TV. You buy tires first knowing it will fit your car right. Same thing.Reply
