KD48A9 too low for a sound bar, options?


Standard Member
I have bought a Sony Bravia KD48A9 as I only have space for a 48" so this now replaces a LCD tv. However, it sits way too low for any soundbar to go in front of it. I know the screen is the speaker and the sound is meant to be great etc, etc, but it can't be as good as a soundar and subwoofer set up.

I have seen tabletop tv stands/mounts that seem to be the equivalent of wall mounting your TV, but allowing you to keep it on the TV stand. I have no space to wall mount so this seems a viable option.

I spoke to Sony customer services, who I can only assume are a call centre based abroad and they were useless.

Has anyone used a Tabletop TV stand/Mount for this TV, its 48" and OLED, if so which one would you recommend?

I never thought this would be an issue but its so low that no sound bar will fit in front of it, without obscuring the view.

i thought of replacing a 55AF9 with the 48A9; and since it was the same width as the Samsung MS650 I used with a 55B7 before; I planned to mount the soundbar on top the A9 using a soundbar bracket. If i did not have the MS650, I would instead get a Sonos playbase, and this would give you the option of pairing a wireless sub.
