Soundbar reviews


We test 18 soundbars in the CHOICE labs including models from Samsung, Sonos, LG, Yamaha and more.

Last updated: 5th May 2015

Soundbars are a compromise in the audio stakes, so don't expect them to deliver "cinema" surround sound like a home theatre system – or even hi-fi quality. But they can deliver good sound and are a really practical solution for smaller rooms.

You may be pleasantly surprised at the quality of these TV audio enhancers. Any of the 18 soundbars we tested will deliver a better sound than you're getting from your TV speakers.

Use our test results to find out which ones:

  • are best suited to your TV and your room
  • are easy to operate
  • have the best remote
  • are the most energy efficient.
