  • Just got one of these for my mother who had very much your exactly recommended set of needs: small footprint soundbar to improve overall sound quality, but most importantly dialogue clarity. Great buy, thanks for the advice/review!

  • On sale now for $149 everywhere. Bought mine this morning.

  • I don't know much about soundbars. I'm a little unclear on whether this works when using other devices or is it only when using the roku streaming on the device? If I want to use my Nvidia shield which is another hdmi port can the soundbar be used with it and how?

  • I recently bought the Sony A9G. Mainly for work but I have used it to watch movies on. The sound is ok, it does a reasonable job but I soon decided to hook up my old Nad Viso 1 AP. The Nad Viso 1 AP is an blue tooth music system, with 2, 15w PSB speakers and a 50w sub woofer. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of modern sound bars. No side or upward firing speakers to create surround sound, no Dolby Atmos or anything fancy and it can't fit inside my tv stand that doesn't really matter when you get such amazing sound from the speakers. I have recently been watching Band of Brothers on Blue ray and the sound just comes at you and I really don't miss surround sound.

  • Have a Roku soundbar with sub and surround speakers. Have Bose Cinemate soundbar and sub from 2015 and also Sonos Arc, Sub and two SLs. What is great about the Roku is that the software and system works well together. Software is almost up there with Sonos and better than older Bose. You get decent sound, good bass and ok surround out of full Roku system. The sound quality isn’t as good as Bose or Sonos, but for about a quarter of the cost, it gets the job done. If want best out of soundbar set up, would recommend full Sonos system, but Roku does a good job for the money, particularly for games and general tv watching.

  • Love all things Roku.😎

  • I was wondering if you can do a review on the Sony ST5000 soundbar !?! Please 🙏

  • Why is there so many spam content from a fake Digital Trends profile comments? Honestly for a 4k stream box plus sound bar looks like a great option.

  • Hi Caleb, Did we review high end sound-bars from sony, samsung, klipsch and polk from 2020 are we planning to review their counter parts from 2021

  • Never been happier with my Sonos Arc, Sub and 2 Ls for surround! Jaw dropping!

  • Currently have the Samsung surround sound with the wireless rear speakers. Always wanted to go with Klipsch just don't want the wires. What to do?

  • I get by ok with the A90J in the bedroom. Great sound on that TV.

  • We live in a townhome and got a TCL 6 series last March. The tv says Dolby atmos but how can you from TV speakers. If you like movies you need a good 3.1 soundbar, we got the Samsung q60t soundbar with rear speakers. I am happy with it fur movies and my wife is happy with what she watches on the fire tv

  • Would you recommend a Vizio M8 Quantum in 65" or a TCL 6 series in 55". We're looking at roughly a 10ft viewing distance. Thanks for the help.

  • Will the sound come through the bar of I am watching a blu ray or playing a game console?

  • I am not very picky about sound so I just use the TV speakers on my Hisense. In fact I mostly listen with Bluetooth headphones so I don't disturb my family

  • The Roku wireless speakers only work with a Roku soundbar or Roku tv.

  • Soundbars are a must. Surround sound even better. Vizio preferred

  • Is It me or; does Roku look kind of out dated?

  • I’ve bought three Roku devices and each one stopped working.

  • Caleb is a man of culture. Keeping rocking Polyphia!

  • You get points for using G.O.A.T. by Polyphia to test your speakers. That's a hell of a song. It really wrings out the entire sound spectrum. Attack/decay, instrument and sound separation, atmosphere/space. I'm surprised it hasn't made more lists for stereo/headphone testing.

    • F•O•R•• M•O•R•E •• G•U•I•D•A•N•C•E•• W•H•A•T•S•A•P•P•• *+1**9**7**1**2**3**8**3**7**2**5*•

  • The power brick is ridiculously oversized. If you’re going to get a sound bar then get something decent.

  • I'm getting by with my jbl 5.1 channel with 10 inch woofer and detachable speakers lol actually I love it

  • Great Review. I would still love you to review the JBL 9.1 sound bar.

  • Yea do more of these sound bar reviews because tv sound is generally awful. Even the good ones still would be better off with a soundbar

  • I use my lg oled CX speakears. I Don’t need anymore. My kids always sleep while I’m watching the TV. It’s the moment i can watch.

  • Doesn't seem worth it at the price. Not at all

  • why wouldn't they make the remote allow the headphones for this, makes no sense honestly cause the tvs that that remote doesn't work is cause the TV can't send the audio signal but im guessing this can so makes no sense

  • 2:17 Setup, at the beginning, shows a Vizio TV SmartCast interface, not Roku.

    • @Tauqeer Ahmad also good!

    • Newly Google tv cromecast >>>

  • Roku will have a future if they stay with Walmart shoppers long enough. This soundboard is definitely enough for an average consumer and you can get rid of the rough stick in back of the tv. Nice....

  • Seems like a cool product, but it just got me thinking that if Apple built Apple TV into a HomePod soundbar product, it would be an interesting competitor. Might actually make HomePod viable.

  • Yes please do subwoofer for TV ASAP

  • I have this for about 3 weeks now. It's better than my TV speakers and does help with clearing up dialog. I got it for an older 2012 TV and it's great because I've had Roku boxes for years. My simple suggestion for an upgrade would be 5 speakers so 3 center and left and right on the bar. This is perfect for apartment living as it amplifies sound without being too big to disturb next door.

  • Would love links to your videos about competitors that you mentioned at the price $400 level. Colour us curious!

  • Moving the sub to different locations in the room can help to adjust the level, near walls and corners will boost it etc.

  • someone at DF loves Polyphia

  • مياوووووووووووووو

  • In late 2012 I bought a LG home theater system with Bluray player and 5.1 surround sound. Big feature is that it has wireless rear speakers so it makes cable management from the main unit so much easier. I have been running it daily for over 9 years in my home theatre room and it still works wonderful for Gaming on PS3/4/5 and all my streaming, Blu-ray and 4k content. I would like to upgrade to Atmos but gonna see how long this setup will as it still sounds great. Only downside is that predates 4k content and only has 2 HDMI inputs so its connected to my TV via ARC. Still plays dvds and blurays like a champ. I have my older 3D TV in my living room so am looking to get a soundbar upgrade for that.

  • I got a JBL 2.1 sound bar and it's SOOOO MUCH BETTER than my ks8500 speakers! Love the bass the subwoofer provides😊

  • 👦👦👦👦👦

  • I have a Sony XF90 from 2018 and the sound from it is amazing, and it somehow mimics Sorround VERY accurately. However I have a HS20R 5.1 Budget Sony System Hooked up and it's stunning for the price.

  • What do you mean that there is zero need for the Dialogue Clarity setting? And what is the difference between Voice Clarity and Dialogue Clarity? Thanks.

  • Caleb, I have an old Boston Acoustics 3.1 speaker system hooked up to my Sony XBR 5 LCD TV. It sounds very good.

  • Caleb is on fire🔥 been loving the reviews here. You and Vincent from Hdtv are my go to for anything AV.👌

  • What for set up is in the back of all his video’s, those massive white speakers? Is there any video made?

  • Is it compatible with other leds

  • I was curious about this!

  • You always seem to answer any questions I have aboout a device, great video.

  • OMG !! Wish i could afford this beutifuls

  • So it's a Roku device that doesn't have ethernet to plug into? Requiring you to do wifi only?

  • Can you review the new Sony SRS - RA5000 speaker 🔈 next ?

    • Thanks for watching! There are a couple TVs in line ahead of the RA5000, but yes we will be reviewing it!

  • Sony 65-AG8, while the speakers built into the screen are very usable, the TV deserves a soundbar so I'm using a 5-year-old Sony HT-CT780 which is more than adequate. I had to tone down the subwoofer though because its default preset is bass-heavy and covers the highs. Am I missing out on surround sound like Dolby atmos though because there is almost no stereo or surround sound effect which I think my setup could benefit from.

  • i have a dolby atmos system.. 5.1.2 never buying a soundbar

  • we need qn90a 50 inch size

  • It will have professional audio eq for app later on

  • Soundbars are a must for me, I need Dolby Atmos support with surround sound. Vizio's have always done right by me for the price! But once I get the cash flow, need a Sonos 100%.

  • What are your thoughts on the TCL Alto 8i soundbar?

  • It's small...Cute 😁

    • thats what she said =D....i'll see myself out

  • My tv needs a lot of help in the sound department! I just don’t know how to remedy it. I mean do I sound bar or buy speakers 🔊?

    • @Ma false

    • 5.1 Soundbars with sub and rear speakers are amazing

    • buy speakers soundbars are trash and overpriced

    • Need to buy a Sony next!

  • Boo
