Maxell MXSB-252


Jazz up your TV's sound with Maxell's excellent sub-£100 soundbase

Generous connections ; Smooth, dynamic and well-balanced sound ; Great price

No Bluetooth ; Fiddly remote ; Not as finessed as some rivals

Elsewhere the MXSB-252 offers a couple sound features – Bass Boost (two levels) and SRS HD WOW, which spreads the sound wider than the usual stereo output. Inside the MXSB-252 are four 10W speakers and a 30W woofer.
