    LG SL10YG Soundbar Review

    by Steve Withers
    LG SL10YG Soundbar Review

    Samsung HW-Q60R Soundbar Review

    by Steve Withers
    Samsung HW-Q60R Soundbar Review
    The Samsung HW-Q60R is the entry-level option in the Q Series of premium soundbars. It looks good on paper but has the company cut too many corners to reach a lower price?

    by Steve Withers
    Bose Soundbar 700 Review
    The Bose Soundbar 700 adds built-in smart assistants and eARC, but without Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, does it do enough to justify the price tag?

    Vizio SB362 Soundbar Review

    by Steve Withers
    Vizio SB362 Soundbar Review
    The Vizio SB362 is the first model the company has released in the UK, but since it's the number one soundbar brand in the States, big things are expected from this budget entry.

    by Steve Withers
    Sennheiser Ambeo Soundbar Review
    The Sennheiser Ambeo Soundbar arrives on the back of plenty of fanfare and hyperbole-filled reviews that make it sound like the Second Coming. So is this soundbar really the best thing since sliced bread?

    Samsung HW-Q80R Soundbar Review

    by Steve Withers
    Samsung HW-Q80R Soundbar Review
    The Samsung HW-Q80R soundbar supports Atmos/DTS:X but reduces its price by dropping the wireless surround speakers included with the HW-Q90R. So does the lower cost make up for the loss of any rear action?
