Sharp HT-SL50 review


One of a trio of soundbars in Sharp's latest lineup, the £120 HT-SL50 purports to be the world's slimmest, at just an astonishing 26mm high. I don't have a tape measure to hand and access to every other ‘bar on the planet, so I'll have to take its word...

It's flawed, but Sharp's super-slim soundbar solution might just be the audio boost you're looking for

Discreet super-slim design, Loud, dynamic sound, Price

Strains at loud volumes, Sounds thin with certain material, Need an ARC-compatible TV

Looks good, slim design

Unless you have a Sharp TV don't go near this as the only connection that works is like a headphone jack and there is a bacground hiss with this approach. The incompatibility with other systems or older flat panel TV's was not explained at all on the...

Very sleek & nice looking bit of kit

Was hoping sound would be more like surround sound I get from my cinema surround, but sadly no where near as good. Better than normal sound from tv though.

Very slim bar speaker

Only works properly if your TV has HDMI with ARC. If it hasn't got this feature don't bother as you will end up using the headphone socket and have a persistent background hiss as a result!

Easy to set up with my Sharp Tv

Not yet found out how to personalise the sound settings, not even sure if this can be done?

Slim design, good sound quality and can be used off sharp tv remote

No bass control and didn't connect to Aquos link first time although easily resolved

Very slim, so won't get in the way of the TV; doesn't even need its stand.

Even the manual warns about the obtrusive hiss when you connect via the headphone socket. Which may be the only option if your TV can't output HDMI audio and has fixed-volume AV sound output, like mine does.
