    Does such a beast exist?

    My old Panasonic soundbase has packed in and I fancied replacing with a soundbar. The old Panasonic had a little screen that showed the volume level (number) as I adjusted it. It seems quite hard to find a Soundbar with something similar. The specs don't seem to say if there is a volume display on either the soundbar or shown on the screen of the TV (which would be the ideal).

    Does anyone have one that does this? Is it only certain soundbar and TV combinations that this is likely to work? (I have an LG tv)

    Thanks for any help.

    Why the need for indication of volume level?

    I get that it isn't a function that everyone wants. But I do.

    I tend to watch tv at different volumes depending on time of day or what I'm doing or watching. Low level for early morning or late at night so I don't disturb neighbours or the wife. Mid-level if the news is on in the background while I'm working from home. Higher for watching movies in the evening etc. I know the volume 'number' these correspond to. I prefer not to have to use trial and error to get to the right volume level each time.

    I guess it's why the manufacturer of every tv I've ever seen includes the function.

    Cheers.

    There’s quite a few with displays but unfortunately there’s no filter on websites to show which have them. I know Canton bases have displays.

    I’d suggest going into a shop and looking at options, then narrow it down.
