Want a cinematic experience from the comfort of your couch? Why, of course you do! Whether it's the latest Hollywood blockbuster or a binge-worthy Netflix series, a decent soundbar will improve your viewing immeasurably and (just as importantly) it'll do so simply and cheaply.
Soundbars and soundbases are an easy and space-efficient way of boosting your TV's sound performance without cluttering your lounge with multiple speakers and a chunky AV amplifier. Just put a soundbar in front of your TV (or below it if you're wall-mounting) and you're good to go!
