104 Dickens Street, Napier, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand | 0800 SOUNDHAUS (0800 768 634)

The first generations of this category were to try to make surround sound from the front. Didn’t work. Most soundbars now are cheap, nasty and sound just as bad as your flatscreen only louder. However recently a few manufacturers have made some very, very special products. Whether Dad can’t hear the Telly or you want a discrete, modern way of listening to music and TV, we have auditioned and approved a few amazing soundbars for you to buy. TS
