Good speakers are the keys to get the best possible sound experience from your sound system. You can mount the best CD or DVD drive on the market and the highest AV receiver, but if you do not have the right speakers, audio settings or home theater is not much in terms of the actual sound. Your speakers form the interface between electronics in your audio system and the physical world when a sound plays – choose the right set can make the difference between the sound tight, the mud and the clear sound of the concert hall.

What connections do I need on a soundbar?

Having a large selection of connectivity is always a bonus because you never know what you want to connect in the future. At least most of the sound bars have at least RCA jacks and an optical digital connection. This will be your preferred choice. In addition, premium sound bars are often called HDMI ARC.

The sound bars can be autonomous or equipped with a separate subwoofer to get a presence at lower frequencies. Perfect for those who want to feel the broken soul. Some sound bars supplied with multiple speakers are looking to test and emulate a surround sound experience 5.1 or 7.1. The simple physical means that it is often a real pale imitation of the ring. In addition, there are sound bases. Instead of being just a rod-shaped loudspeaker mounted in front of your TV or on a wall, sound bases act as a platform that your TV is sitting on. This often means that more drivers can be installed inside.
