Best Budget Soundbar

Asia's Tech News Daily

When you’re watching a huge blockbuster with a carefully designed sound mix, you want to be able to get the best out of it, even if you’re viewing it in the comfort of your own home. But the biggest TV in the world doesn’t mean a thing if you don’t have a suitably impressive sound system to back up those crisp 4K visuals. If your budget doesn’t stretch to pricey sound equipment, luckily, it doesn’t have to.

Majority Snowdon II Soundbar

Our thoughts: This is ideal for compact spaces and budgets. It’s high-quality, and we highly recommend it. We really enjoy this one.

Specifications: Output: 120w | Frequency Response: Not available | Audio Processing: Majority Virtual Surround Sound | Connections: AUX In, RCA, Bluetooth

LG SJ2 Soundbar

Our thoughts: This will offer cinematic sound at a fraction of the footprint of more expansive setups. We highly recommend this one.

Specifications: Output: 160w | Frequency Response: Not available | Audio Processing: Dolby Digital | Connections: Optical, Bluetooth, USB

Sony HT-SF150 Soundbar

Our thoughts: While the lower frequencies of the bass response are somewhat absent, the low and mid balance helps push the human voice through in the mix. The design sensibilities on display here are sharp and understated, allowing the soundbar to sit comfortably and stylishly under a television.

Specifications: Output: 120w | Frequency Response: 88Hz – 15kHz (approx.) | Audio Processing: Dolby Digital, S-Force Front Surround | Connections: HDMI ARC, Bluetooth 4.2, USB

AZATOM Studio Home Soundbar

Our thoughts: It also boasts full Bluetooth and other connectivity. It’s impressive and one of our favourites. It’s a big yes from us.

Specifications: Output: 180w | Frequency Response: Not available | Audio processing: Unique Azatom Digital Signal| Connections: HDMI ARC, Optical, Bluetooth 5.0, Optical, AUX

Sonos Beam Compact Smart Soundbar

Our thoughts: It’s great for those with a TV set-up who need to save a little space without compromising any power. Great stuff!

Specifications: Output: Not available | Frequency Response: 55Hz – 15kHz (approx.) | Audio Processing: Dolby Digital, Speech Enhancement | Connections: HDMI ARC, Optical, WiFi/Ethernet, Apple AirPlay 2 | Extras: Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Sonos multi-room connectivity

JBL Bar Studio 2.0

Our thoughts: JBL’s pseudo surround technology bouncing beams around your room to give the illusion of enveloping sound without the need for physical rear speakers.

Specifications: Output: 80w | Frequency Response: 70Hz – 20kHz | Audio Processing: Dolby Digital, JBL Smart Surround | Connections: HDMI ARC, Optical, Bluetooth 4.2

Sharp HT-SBW460

Our thoughts: This will provide superior sound if the movie or show you’re watching was shot using it. Another solid contender here.

Specifications: Output: 440w | Frequency Response: Not available | Audio Processing: Dolby Atmos | Connections: HDMI ARC, AUX In, Optical, Bluetooth, USB, 4K Passthrough
