A sound bar improves audio performance over a television's built-in speakers without the complications of installing multiple speakers throughout a room.
You enjoy high-quality audio—the way it brings out the subtleties in entertainment, the way it heightens the impact—but not enough to invest in a full-blown home theater. Maybe you live in a small apartment. Maybe your favorite place to watch movies is from bed. Or maybe you just like to keep things simple. Whatever your reasons, a sound bar could be the answer. The best sound bars combine superior audio capabilities and ingenious design into a sleek and unobtrusive package. The benefits include:
Sound bars come in two basic varieties: those with their own built-in amplification ("powered"), and those that must be connected to an A/V receiver or amplifier ("passive"). Some also feature a separate subwoofer for the lowest frequencies. Another important consideration is the presence of critical Dolby® technologies. These enhance a sound bar's audio capabilities and create a richer, more satisfying listening experience for you.
A sound bar should include some combination of the following Dolby technologies:
Dolby technologies elevate the overall performance of sound bars and add important features. Look for sound bars from these manufacturers when shopping for your next system.
