My first post, please be gentle For years I’ve been running my TV sound through an old JVC stereo hi-if, and it sounded great! However, recently the TV went caput so I invested in a lovely new Sony Bravia 4K HDR set, which also came with a ‘free’ (that should have set the alarm bells ringing) soundbar and subwoofer. It was with some excitement that I set it all up and played the first movie... Hang on a minute, I must have wired it up incorrectly, or maybe there’s a setting somewhere that I’ve missed - it sounds like someone listening to their iPhone in the bathroom?!... Nope, after a few weeks of use I now realise that this is how it’s supposed to sound. To say I’m slightly underwhelmed is an understatement. How is it that a 10+ year old JVC hi-fi can sound so much better than this brand new soundbar/subwoofer? If I crank up the volume then yes, it sounds kind of ok, but with two small kids and neighbours the reality is I usually have to have the sound sensibly low. So to my question. I could reconnect the JCV, I know I like the sound it makes, but really I’m after a more minimal solution. I’m not massively interested in surround sound, I would probably be very happy with a pair of decent 2.0 active speakers that don’t break the bank. Having already done a bit of research I quite like the look/idea of the Edifier R1800 Tiii speakers. Not too big, not too small, I can connect to the TV and an Echo Dot for music. Do people think these would be a good choice? Are there better alternatives around the same price point £150-ish. Looking forward to your thoughts and advice.
