Strong, Space Saving Sound
This Onkyo LS3100 Envision Cinema 2.1 Channel Bluetooth Speaker System in black finish is a terrific 2.1 sound system. Of course, you are not getting full surround sound, but your front speakers and subwoofer are always the most important part of a viewing/listening experience. Indeed, in many tight rooms or homes, a 2.1 is the simplest way to go.
The small receiver device has an optical audio input.
Crisp dialogue and strong bass
The SC-HTB550 is a major step up from last year's SC-HTB520, not just in the flexibility of its design, but also in the array of connections on offer. Changing some of the more in-depth settings can be a bit obtuse, but most of the main features are still easy to use. And when it comes to delivering good bass effects and clean, clear dialogue, it's up with the best soundbars we've tested. As a result, if you're looking for a modestly priced soundbar or 2.1 system, we think it's a good option.
Virtual surround sound
A symphony in black plastic, the Panasonic SC-HTB550 confounds expectations. The system, which comprises a wireless subwoofer, 95cm soundbar and dedicated audio processor, looks decidedly utilitarian yet it sounds like a mini multiplex.
Two HDMI inputs mean you can hook up both games console/disc player plus a set top box, and system is Bluetooth compatible too.
I did many hours of research on which sound system I wanted to purchase. I currently have a Samsung sound system in my living room and like it a lot except for the software aspect of it is a little sketchy. I decided to go with the Harmon Kardon BDS 370 2.1 for my bed room because it is a simple and elegant system. I have no regrets on the purchase of the Harmon Kardon. It produces excellent sound at all volume levels and has all the features I need in a simple 2.1 sound system.
Great system for the price
I bought this to go with my Panasonic TV and Panasonic Blu-ray player- I wanted brand consistency and I don't think I missed out on anything by sticking to Panasonic. The sound is great and loud - wireless subwoofer is great and the bluetooth reaches really far with my phone. The "surround" sound doesn't give quiet as good an experience as the multi-speaker system but if you are looking to not have wires everywhere or a ton of cost this is the way to go.
Effective dialog enhancement
Let's take a moment to put things in perspective: The SC-HTB350 is a roughly $250 system that is miles ahead of any TV's built-in speakers, and stronger sounding s than many larger HTIB's we heard over the years. While it suffers from some sonic weaknesses that won't pass serious scrutiny, this system is sure to please those who want a simple and flexible speaker system with the convenience of a wireless sub and the capability to produce big sound with muscular bass.
Innovative multi-positional speaker system
Although SC-HTB350 doesn't produce the extra sparkle in the high frequency range, blow-your-socks-off bass, or immerse you in a true surround sound environment, that you may get in a 5.1 or 7.1 channel speaker home theater audio system, it definitely does provide a listening experience that is a major improvement over having to put up with inadequate TV speakers, without taking up a lot of extra space.
Good audio quality for movies and music
The SC-HTB520 is not without its flaws, as it certainly hasnâ??t got the broadest array of connections and the small remote is a bit fiddly to use. However, it's very easy to set up - especially if your TV has an HDMI ARC port - and it manages to deliver excellent sound quality, that's both warm and beefy. Add in a stylish design, and you've got one of the better, mid-priced soundbars available right now.
Built-in surround sound processing
Although the SC-HTB520 is an affordable sound bar system, it also lacks features found on Sony's now discontinued HT-CT150 such as better connectivity and an LED display. If those features are important to you, Sony still has more expensive HT-CT350 model available. However, if you can live with the limited connectivity, Panasonic's offering does seem like a good no-frills approach to improve your TV and movie watching experience.
A Great Piece to Add to your Entertainment
I bought this as a birthday present for my husband. What caught my eye was the ability to stream Netflix, Pandora, etc. and hook up our ipods to it as well. We have Netflix though the Wii, but the picture quality is not great because the Wii doesn't have HD hook ups. Neither of us are very tech savvy, but were able to set it all up by ourselves in less than an hour, exploring the different features as we went.
Bass is loud, brings out big sound effects in movies
The Sony BDV-F7 is a special 3D Blu-ray-disc compatible, sound bar home theater system designed to deliver quality audio alongside blu-ray video content. Geared especially for users who prefer not to mess with complicated multi-channel surround-sound setups, the BDV-F7 features a 3D blu-ray player, a sound bar, and a 6-3/8" Bass Reflex subwoofer.
Amazing Home Theater System
This is a great product and I would highly reccoment it to anyone looking to buy a new home theater system. It was a little expensive but very worth the money.
-The sound is amazing. I no longer have to turn up and down the sound when people are talking or when there is action like I had to do with my old system.
-Set up was very simple. I could have used a little extra wire but it was easy to add some lengh so I could place the speakers where I wanted them in the room.
Enough sound to fill a medium sized living room
The Sony BDV- E580 is one of three 3D-compliant home theater systems (BDV-E780W, BDV-E580, and BDV-E280) released together in early 2011. It builds from the BDV-E280 by adding integrated Wi-Fi and an advanced Media Remote that can control iPhones, iPods, and Android smartphones.
Magnificent three-channel sound
If you're looking for a 2.1 DVD system that oozes style, offers a decent range of features and delivers magnificent three-channel sound, then look no further than the HTS6515. But if you're looking for a system that convincingly mimics a proper 5.1-channel soundstage then you may be disappointed by what Ambisound has to offer.
Ambisound does a good job
This is one of the best DVD upscalers we've seen in its class -- the sound quality from the 2.1 speakers is actually very good and Ambisound can make you think you have a full on 5.1 system at times. We quite like the styling, although we do think the subwoofer is a little bit too big. If £300 is within your budget, you could do a lot worse than this capable machine.
Great Sound, Great Player
This is a great sound, you think how can 2 speakers have a 5.1 surround sound, well it can. I mean the depth, sound is rich in quality.
Pro's: Great sound, 3D depth, sounds like your in the theater. DVD player is a great player.
Con's: The worst con is that it does NOT support progressive scan out put, just regular Video cables, and S-Video.
Complete surround sound with only 4 components
You can't really beat the novelty and convenience of this system - it's very unobtrusive, and in these days of multiple components in and around your home theater system the size and number of components is refreshing. You pay a lot for this convenience, though and the DVD quirks coupled with the price add up to not a very good value for the money.
